Well, we’ve made it to the New Year – happy 2016! The New Year is prime time for new beginnings – new workout routines, new eating habits, new wardrobes – but it can be hard to stick to a new routine.
According to a 2014 study conducted by the University of Scranton psychology department quoted in Huffington Post, 71% of people hold to their New Year’s resolutions for the first two weeks, but 6 months later, less than 50% of those surveyed actually continue to stick to them!
We’re not going to let you be part of that population. Here are a few tips we’ve put together to help you stick to your 2016 New Year’s resolutions:
1. Sign up for a race or competition in January or February.
You’ll have a reason to keep up with your workout routine if you have a deadline!
2. Get the whole family involved.
Why not plan a family football game or a Zumba class to keep everyone fit during this holiday season? Exercise and create memories!
3. Find a workout buddy!
It’s much easier keeping each other motivated by exercising together. You are more likely to stay committed and stay on track with your workout routine.
4. Gift yourself with some new workout gear.
Who doesn’t love a little retail therapy? Plus, you’ll be more motivated to hit the gym to flaunt it! Neon colors, mesh and cutouts are huge this year – make them pop with a sun-kissed glow from Ortanic! Plus, members get 50% off all month long!!
