1. Anchor your new (or desired) habit to an existing habit.
2. Dive in to accountability and support. Share your goal with someone or a group that will hold you accountability. It's more than okay to ask for help.
3. Give yourself grace along the way!
In my virtual community this month we are not only working on our health & fitness goals, but we are also focusing on mindset shifts & habits as well! And talk about a holyyyy motivating positive vibes crew! Right now we are reading the book Atomic Habits, by James Clear. This video is last Thursday's training discussing creating a Habit Scorecard to evaluate your current daily habits and also where you may want to add in some new ones!
I am revisiting this training and habit score card for myself this week. There are so many unknowns with the global pandemic right now and it has thrown a lot of us into stressful and unstructured situations. There is a TON WE CAN'T CONTROL right now, but it got me to think, "What can I implement and control right now?"
I am tired of feeling "off" and "in a funk". Yes, we won't be able to shake these feelings entirely. But one thing I have learned to be true is that when we implement some sort of a...

Step Three - Sneaking some time in for YOU.

Here are my 5 quick tips/reminders to kick-off 2020!
1. REALISTIC GOALS
Set REALISTIC goals. But don't be afraid to set goals that stretch you! When you step out of your comfort zone amazing things can happen!
2. LEAVE IT IN THE PAST AND MOVE FORWARD
Don't be hard on yourself for what did or did not happen last year. Know that you were right where you needed to be in 2019. Learn from it. Grow from it. This is a new year, a fresh start - focus on the future and making this year great! (Notice I say "making" rather than "having a great year" because it is up to YOU to make these goals happen!)
3. THREE MONTH YEAR
Try something new and break the year into quarters. Pretend your year is three months long, rather than twelve. Just imagine all that you can accomplish if you focus on accomplishing these big goals in one quarter rather than a full year. I promise you will get way more accomplished this way!
