For most folks, January comes with an inevitable rhythm. Goals are set. Lifestyle changes are made. And after a few weeks, old habits are resumed.
It’s not that most New Year’s resolutioners completely lack discipline. Nor is it that they don’t have good intentions. It’s that change is hard. We have routines. Our lives have rhythms. From our diet and exercise regimes to our sleep patterns and sex drive, our bodies become accustomed to a specific way of doing things.
Does this mean change is impossible? Absolutely not! However, change is a little more achievable with the right approach.
- Clearly Define Your Goal – Broad goals, like ‘This is the year I’m going to be healthy,’ sets you up for failure. This is because there’s no clearly defined moment of success. Rather, a clearly defined goal might be to lose an inch around your waist, eat a salad for lunch every day or run a mile. These are goals you can visualize and measure.
- Write Your Goals Down – How likely are you to forget the name of a new acquaintance or statistic you heard on the radio? Our memories aren’t as good as paper. By writing down your goals, you make them real. Place your written down goal in a spot you’ll see it every day. This will help you hold yourself accountable.
- Get Help – Asking for help doesn’t make you weak. It makes you smart. Once you’ve defined your goal, find a professional in that field to help you achieve it. If you want to fit into your wedding dress again, talk to someone about your diet. Medically supervised weight loss can help you maximize your progress with a diet tailored to your body’s genetic makeup.
- Give Your Body a Boost – When we ask a lot of our bodies, it’s not uncommon for them to become depleted of key vitamins or minerals. This can put you at risk for getting sick, tired, and sad. IV drip therapy helps your body keep up with the demands of a full life by giving is a boost of key vitamins and minerals from.
- Balance Your Hormones – Hormones are your body’s chemical messengers. When they are at irregular levels you can experience mood swings, hot flashes, and a decreased sex drive. By balancing your hormones, you can help your body operate at its full potential.
