Every year on New Year’s, millions of people commit to transforming their lives through weight loss. More than half of them abandon those hopes before achieving their goal. So, toss the scale in 2022 and commit to weight-free goals instead.
54% of Diet Resolutions Fail
- They’re too strict.
- They’re unrealistic.
- They’re not specific enough.
- They’re not internally motivated.
- They rely on quick solutions.
Wellness isn’t all about weight. Instead, next year, focus on all the strength, energy, and positive habits you can gain by adopting a non-weight-related resolution. These goals might lead to weight loss but are guaranteed to lead to a healthier and happier you.
We’ve made a list of weightless focus areas. We encourage you to pick one and start planning.
- Diet – Improve your diet by using portion control, eating less junk food, eating more fruits and vegetables, drinking more water and consuming three meals a day.
- Rest – Establish work/life balance. Take a vacation, set office hours, or consistently take a lunch break.
- Flexibility – Aim to reach a little further and move more efficiently in your exercises.
- Endurance – Try to complete more reps of your favorite exercises or push through longer workouts.
- Cooking – Make more homecooked meals, use more fresh ingredients, and take a cooking class with Keys to Abundant Life.
- Distance – Walk, run, or ride a little further than you ever thought you could in 2021.
- Consistency – These resolutions are all about stick-to-itiveness — sticking to your schedule, your diet, and your values.
- Tracking – Keep a journal of your meals, workouts, rest, and thoughts throughout the day. Use it to observe your daily habits and how they affect your energy, mood, and productivity.
- Health Visits – Get caught up on your annual health screenings and schedule appointments in advance.
- Attitude – Change your outlook in 2022. Rather than shedding pounds, shed self-doubt, negative self-talk, and poor mental hygiene. Set goals to commit to daily routines that support positive thinking like waking up with intention.
