2017 is finally upon us! A new year means a fresh start, a blank slate for the year ahead of us. As we begin to think about the areas of our lives we would like to improve, we must understand how we view those challenges. This is detrimental to our success in achieving change. Most of us will make a resolution this new year. According to Merriam-Webster the definition of a resolution is a firm decision to do or not to do something. 2. the action of solving a problem, dispute, or contentious matter. Resolutions are one of the many awesome things that many people will participate in the first few weeks of the new year.
Rather than making a resolution for the year 2017, make a commitment to your future. The definition of a commitment according to Merriam-Webster is the state or quality of being dedicated to a cause, activity, etc. Being committed rather than making a resolution to better health and fitness, I believe will change the outcomes of 2017.
Be dedicated to making the small changes important. Be committed to making the food you put in your body important. Be dedicated to making exercise a part of your lifestyle. Be committed to a goal. Be dedicated to the process. Be committed to the outcome.
