Changing seasons often lead us to reflect on our relationships: with friends and loved ones, with our bodies, and with our diet. And now that there’s a chill in the air and the kids are back at school, you might be feeling like it’s time for a fresh start. Here are some tips on how to make positive changes that last:
Define Your Goal
What are you looking to change? Do you want to develop new, positive habits? Take time to consider your goals, and state them clearly. Write them down or tell a friend – once you go public, you’ll be held accountable.
Map Your Route
Map your route to success by surrounding yourself with friends and family who will support you. Changes often come with challenges, so be prepared by planning ahead. If you want to eat more healthfully, surround yourself with healthy choices. If you want to exercise more, schedule time in your calendar. If you need help with any of your goals, reach out to someone who can help you reach your finish line.
Make It Happen
Start today – you know what you want, so go for it! You’ve decided on a goal and you know how you want to get there. There’s no need to wait another minute.
