It's still March, and that means it's still National Nutrition Month. Yes there is such a thing! Now is the time for those of you who have slacked off on those new years resolutions to start fresh, NOW! Honestly, we can start fresh whenever we want to and that includes right now, in this very moment. Don't wait until Monday to start exercising, start now! Don't hold off on the ice cream until the weekend, treat yourself right now! Don't give up on that last rep, finish it right now! We have so many opportunities in this life to create a new beginning for ourselves. This moment is an opportunity to start again.
It's easy to get discouraged when we create barriers and time limits on ourselves. Especially when it comes to taking care of our bodies. Setting goals is great but setting unrealistic ones usually end with us quitting or giving up.
According to a study done by the Journal of Clinical Psychology, only 39% of people in their twenties achieved their resolution each year. These resolutions range from self improvement to fall in love. More than half had a hard time keeping their resolution because they got discouraged or didn’t have enough time anymore. NOW, is the time to revisit that goal and try again.Try to set reasonable goals but don't be afraid to push yourself past your limits, because incredible things happen when you do.
Go celebrate National Nutrition month by revisiting some goals and pushing yourself just a little bit further.
