Are you looking for an effective way to make long-lasting changes in your life this New Year? Working on forming habits can be a great way to reach your New Year’s fitness and health resolutions, but it can take time to maintain them as the year gets busy. Here are some strategies that will help you cultivate positive habits that will stick long-term.
Forming Long-Lasting Habits in the New Year
The 3 R’s
Research has shown that all long-lasting habits follow a 3-step process.
- Reminder – a cue that initiates the habit (ex. wanting to reach fitness goals in the New Year).
- Routine – the action you take to make long-lasting habits (ex. staying focused on the goal and crushing your at-home workouts).
- Reward – the benefits you gain from doing the habit (ex. hitting new strength training PRs in the New Year).
Showing up every day is critical to long-lasting success. Getting into a manageable routine is important so it becomes a long-lasting habit. Years of psychological research have proven that if you perform an action enough times, it will eventually become a habit. Therefore, repeatedly showing up in your home gym will form a long-lasting habit that will help you meet your fitness goals this year.
Believe in Yourself
Remember to believe in yourself. We are more likely to meet our goals if we believe that we can accomplish them. You can achieve anything you set your mind to if you believe in yourself – we believe in you!
Patience Leads to Long-Lasting Habits
Remember, habits develop gradually and take time to stick. Therefore, it is important to remain patient, consistent and focused on your fitness goals. We know that it can be disappointing not to see instant results, but do not let your frustration get in the way of your progress. We are in this for the long run!
Celebrate every milestone – big or small! No matter how small an accomplishment may seem, it deserves a celebration. Celebrating your progression throughout your fitness journey this New Year will create long-lasting habits and results.
