New year new you, right? If getting healthy, lose weight and exercising more are few of your many New Year’s resolutions raise your hand! Wow, I see a lot of hands in the air, including mine, but the real question is: will you keep these resolutions? It’s in the human nature to set yourself for failure. When things get tough we tend to give up. The main reason we don’t keep our resolutions is because we need to change our habits. Doing something differently from what we’ve always done is tough in the beginning but what we actually don’t realize is that we need to create a new habit to get rid of the old one.
But we’re not here to talk about failure because we’re here to set ourselves up for success. The major key to success is to keep your resolutions realistic and possible to achieve. Setting up monthly, weekly or daily milestones towards your final goal makes it a lot easier to achieve and most importantly, keeps you motivated.
Start your morning with one of these delicious detox juices and you’ll definitely be taking the right step in the right direction of keeping your New Year’s resolutions this year.
Remember: no success is too small. Celebrate the small successes because they’ll get big one day.
