Of course, this is the end of the year. But, it is the right time to start with planning and thinking about fitness as your New Year resolutions. Even though you tell yourself that ‘I will start fresh from New Year’ there should be some preparation that you need to make now. For example, you can start with your walking from now so that by New Year, you will be better practised and you can establish as a routine. When starting with your resolution a few days or months earlier to New Year, it can be really beneficial.
Plan Ahead To Start Your Fitness
For example, your New Year resolution is weight reduction or running a marathon. You need not wait till New Year comes to start making efforts towards this. You can use the leftover days of this year for getting a head start. If you want to run a marathon in the coming year, you may have to make a few months of preparation such as long runs. So, utilize days left to start practising long runs.
If the aim is to lose weight in the coming year, then start making preparations for that. For example, you can consult dieticians and prepare a diet plan. You can also prepare a list of workout plans that help in weight loss. Rather starting from January from scratch, you can be ready with basic necessities.
Try to Develop a Perfect Routine
It is very difficult to fall back into routines after a leisure time. The worst part is the cold weather. Hence following a routine on a daily basis is very important to start something or achieve something. Hence try to set a routine for the entire family before even the New Year starts. This will help in adopting anything that you are planning for. If your resolution is to wake up early, then try it before even the New Year starts.
Book Your Training To Start Your Fitness
If you plan to join the gym from New Year and workout is your New Year resolution then, plan it now itself. Pick the best gym near you and choose a workout routine and best trainer. There will be hundreds of people coming to the gym after the New Year. This is the reason you need to expect some hike in payment as well.
Irrespective of your New Year resolution, common and general suggestion that can be given is ‘start small’. For example, practising meditation on a daily basis is your New Year resolution, then start practising it at least for 10 minutes a day. It doesn’t work out if you start all of a sudden and try to sit for a long time. You will get disturbed and discouraged easily. Either it is running or reading, you need to start a habit through practising it small chunks.
Final Thoughts To Start Your Fitness
There is no point in forcing yourself or your body for a new resolution. It need not be physical activity, even mental activities like reading need regular practice and patience. Each and every fitness routine takes time to get adjusted to it and it is better to start it now.
