5 New Year Resolutions Ideas for a Happier & Healthier New Year

It's a new year and many of us feel determined to set new goals. But as it gets deeper into the new year, you may find it harder to stick to them. “When setting your resolution, keep in mind that the only one that is truly committed to your success is you,” says Jumaah Goldberg, DPT, creator of Mind Your Damn Fitness. “In fact, research has shown that people who are internally motivated are more likely to stick to a task, invest more time in that task, and be more successful at that task. Stop worrying about what other people think you should be doing and create resolutions based on what is most important to you!”

Jonathan Aluzas, a NASM-certified personal trainer and owner of Arena Fitness in Los Angeles, says that small, incremental improvements go a long way. "When you add them up, incremental improvements are incredibly powerful. If you can improve by one percent per week over the span of a year, that's a 67 percent annual improvement, which is quite amazing."

Try these 5 ideas that will transform your resolution to a lifestyle.

Set one goal per month.

In January, try to eliminate added sugars and in February limit alcohol. “At the end of the month, reflect on what worked and what didn't. Become your own mentor for improvements you want to make.

Create a workout calendar.

To make your plan more concrete, plot it out on paper, recommends Anna Kaiser, a celebrity trainer in New York City and the founder of the growing fitness franchise AKT fitness boutiques.

“Set up a workout calendar to write your activity, length and location for each day of your program. Every time you complete a work out, add a gold star or a sticker on that day to help track and visually see the progress that you are making,” Kaiser says.

For even bigger benefits and more motivation, tack on a reward, too. “When you reach 10 stars, give yourself a non-food ‘prize’ like a manicure, pedicure or massage so that you can celebrate the work you’ve accomplished.”

Track your time and water intake.

If you find your energy is lagging come mid-afternoon, do an H2O check before snacking. You might just be thirsty, says Maya F. Bach, MPH, RDN, a registered dietitian nutritionist in Chicago, Illinois.

“If you're struggling to drink water throughout the day, start your morning with a glass, also pack a refillable water bottle to carry around throughout the day. Consider rotate in sparkling or infused waters if you’re craving a change of pace, Try this schedule, after that first-thing-in-the-morning glass, set a countdown timer for three hours on your phone—and make it recurring. When the alarm sounds, drink 20 ounces of water if you haven’t done so already since the last time it rang.

Make lunch your biggest meal of the day.

For health benefits without cutting calories, shift more of your caloric intake to the daytime. Start with a nutritious breakfast and eat your largest meal at midday.

“Metabolism is tied to our circadian rhythm, so insulin sensitivity decreases overnight as growth hormone and cellular repair takes priority. Research shows that a meal eaten late at night causes blood sugar to increase more than the same meal consumed earlier. Over time, these spikes can increase the risk of type 2 diabetes,” Nancy Woodbury, RD, a registered dietitian and the owner of Nancy Woodbury Nutrition in Boca Raton, Florida.Woodbury says.

Make fit friends.

“Accountability is huge! We all need support while creating new habits,” says Tara Nicolas, a certified personal trainer, group fitness instructor and Fhitting Room FHIT Pro in New York City. Share your micro resolution to your loved ones so they can check in, and if possible, find a buddy who has already accomplished your goal and see if they have any advice.”
