Many of us set out each new year with goals or resolutions, which we promise to stick by come thick or thin. Trouble is majority of these resolutions don't get completed or are shrugged off by the end of January!
Topping the list each year are: Losing weight; being more active; eating better; getting outdoors more; sleeping more and drinking more water.
All of which are great goals, but their fault lies in their simplicity.
Setting broad goals like the ones listed above is setting you up for failure already.
Goals need to be precise, measurable, attainable and realistic. You have to have a plan of how to achieve that goal and a way of knowing if you have already achieved it.
For example: I want to lose weight. This should rather be set out: I want to lose 5 kilograms within 2 months, by eating more regularly, increasing fruit and veg, avoiding sugar and exercising 3 times a week.
Focus on one goal at a time, although often you can kill 2 birds with 1 stone, like exercising...
