For so many Australians, 2020 is largely a year that we’d all like to forget. COVID-19 changed the way we work, learn and relax, and included working from home, learning remotely, and enjoying more simple, and often sedentary forms of leisure time. With so much time spent at home, many of us looked for comfort in food, and may have put on more than a few ‘COVID Kilos’. Coupled with a reduced capacity to get out and exercise as we normally would, 2020 for some was a bit of a downward spiral in terms of lifestyle choices and overall health.
But wait! 2020 is officially over, and it’s a new year! Although it sounds clichéd, a new year is the perfect time to forget about the trials of the past 12 months, and to reassess your life in terms of health, happiness, work and play. You don’t have to change everything, or in fact, anything, but it’s a good opportunity to reflect on the things that worked well to improve your life, and to decide what habits might need to be broken in order for you to have a healthy 2021.
Did you know that less than 10% of people actually keep their new years resolutions? For many different reasons, we put huge expectations on ourselves to totally overhaul every aspect of our lives just because a new year rolls around. But do we really need to make such drastic changes?
Interestingly, by making a more defined goal for ourselves, we are more likely to achieve success than if we were to make the broad and often unattainable resolutions year after year.
Making a goal a habit means that it becomes an automatic part of your daily life. It won’t be an effort to accomplish it, because it will just become second nature, as opposed to a chore to complete.
For those who have entered the new year with defined health and fitness goals, the perfect way to kick off on the right foot is to discover what’s best suited to your unique genetic makeup. Just like no two people have the same taste in music, no two people’s bodies work in the same way. People from the same family, and even twins, respond differently to different foods, and may be more or less talented at a particular sport. The reason for this lies in our DNA.
