We feel privileged when you partner with Atagi Plastic Surgery and Skin Aesthetics in making your New Year’s resolutions come true! Promising to look and feel your best often isn’t the hard part, it’s actually following through and making it happen. We know how easy it is for the unpredictability of life to disrupt your plans.
That’s why we’d like to help you improve your chances for success! Here are a few expert-backed tips for making health and wellness changes that last:
1. Set specific, realistic goals.
Before you do anything, create a well-thought-out plan. It’s hard to fulfill your goals if they’re vague or undefined. Avoid setbacks and disappointments by being as specific as possible, perhaps by writing or drawing out your intentions. It never hurts to visualize! If you want to exercise more, for example, create measurable goals such as running on the treadmill for 30 minutes a day or going to the gym three nights a week. The more detailed your approach, the clearer the target you’ll have to aim for. With a little extra planning, you can change your habits — and ultimately change your life!
2. Consistency is key.
We want you to take that all-or-nothing mentality and throw it out the window. The wellness experts have spoken and can confirm consistency is far more valuable than intensity. The key ingredients in working toward a wellness goal are persistence and consistency. If you’re giving it your all and doing so regularly, there’s no need to worry — you’re on the track to success! If we’re talking weight loss, it’ll count more if you’re walking on the treadmill every day than if you run 10 miles once a month, don’t you think? Every step counts toward achieving your goal, no matter how small. The more you keep at it, the more your determination and motivation will grow, and the more entrenched your healthier habits will be!
3. Believe in yourself!
Like many of us, if you often struggle to silence your inner critic, it can be easy to blame yourself when you hit roadblocks in your journey to success. But mistakes are a part of the process. Remember to be kind to yourself and never doubt your worth. Achieving meaningful, lasting change is easier when you cultivate a mindset of self-compassion rather than self-criticism. Next time your inner critic pipes up, remind yourself that you’re capable of doing anything you set your mind to — you got this!
