Consistency

Consistency is one of the keys to reaching your goals – whether it’s a health/fitness goal, a studying goal or just a new habit to get into. How many times do you start something, just lose track of it and forget it? When you started eating healthily and just thought, “Agh…forget it”, or when you wrote that study timetable and never looked at it again.

Why does that happen?

  • Maybe you are not fully focused on your goal. You need to set a strong intention on why you want it and how you are going to get there.
  • Maybe that goal is not actually what you want. Have you fully researched and understood what you are really looking for?
  • Consistency! It can be a habit to get into, you are not just going to automatically eat healthily everyday or stick to that things to do list. You take it step by step. You listen to your body and move at your own pace.

So… if you are trying to adjust your eating, and find that piece of cake staring at you, it is okay to eat it. As long as you don’t make it a consistent habit. Doing those workouts once won’t get you results right that second, so don’t keep looking in the mirror every 5 minutes. It needs consistency, time, and patience. My goal is to develop my consistency!

A new year’s resolution or a new day’s resolution?

A new year can be a motivating,  new start to set goals, and of course, to set that a resolution. However, can’t we set a new resolution every day? If you really want to start something, with strong intention, start from now! Start from today or even tomorrow. I don’t see why a new year will help you determine when to start a new resolution, habit or a goal. Start with strong intention and consistency (stick to your goal – the beginning can be tough), instead of starting with a date. HAPPY 2014 AND A HAPPY NOW!
