... (and the three most commonly broken!)
2014 has drawn to a close. Christmas has well and truly passed, the fireworks at midnight have faded, and the thing on everyone’s lips is New Year’s Resolutions. As well-meaning and optimistic as yours may be, the likelihood of you keeping your New Year’s Resolutions isn’t great. In fact, most people don’t even come close. It’s a sad state of affairs. Here are the top 3 most commonly broken New Year’s Resolutions; and a bit of helpful advice and motivation to help you keep them:
1) Lose weight
Post-Christmas, this is on everyone’s mind. You’ve eaten your way through the silly season and now you’re faced with a new year and the idea of a whole new you. Unfortunately this resolution is easier said than done. Most people start off well (could this be a post-Christmas guilt?) but then fall off the bandwagon not long into the New Year. The trick is to start small. Don’t set yourself massive, unachievable targets straight away. It’s also important to be healthy, try to combine your new diet with exercise. Go for a run or a ride around your local park. Good thing Proviz has got you covered there with a great range of high visibility running and cycling jackets!
2) Learn something new
This is a hard one, depending on what goals you’ve set yourself. Again, it’s best to start small and not set yourself up to fail. Try familiarising yourself with your goal before you jump in. Make sure you know everything there is to know about it. This will start you off well, and even though you might stumble at first, if you have a good grounding knowledge of your chosen area, you can find out where you went wrong, and where to go next.
3) Be less stressed
Ah, the idea of living a stress-free life. It sounds pretty good, doesn’t it? But unfortunately this New Year’s Resolution is one of the hardest to stick with. It’s impossible to remove all stress from your life, but you can come up with ways of making it more manageable. The simplest thing is to give yourself just 10 minutes a day to do something that you love. And, on top of that, a proven way to relieve stress is to get some exercise. Throw on your running jacket, pop in your headphones, and go for a walk or a run. You’ll be surprised at how quickly your mind clears.
Try giving yourself a bit of extra motivation by kitting yourself up with some of our great hi-visibility jackets. You’ll look great and the extra safety they provide means you have one less thing to stress about! Check them out here!
