Hope everyone had a great New Years Eve, and have begun a Happy New Year for 2013.
New Year's Resolutions, generally come and go. For example Yoga and Fitness classes have students starting out the new year and within a few weeks more drop out then any other time of year. Students generally have trouble committing to a weekly schedule of a new program or they stop going for other reasons.
Ok, so is there an easy solution to this problem? No, otherwise there wouldn’t be New Year's Resolutions.
Resolutions are easy to start at the first of the year with no holidays to plan and interrupt our already busy schedules, as well as limited events happening early in the year. We are also motivated after coming off the bad eating habits we have been practicing throughout the holidays.
New Year's Resolutions are something you do for you so take full advantage by getting the most from them. If you can commit to 21 continuous classes they may become a habit, make it a year or longer and it may become part of your life. Generally if you reach this point you are benefiting from the program and feeling the natural high you get during and after each class. Your body generally will feel better all the time and your physical body may change to a more pleasing view. I’d say if it were something you can enjoy with support from family and friends, you have a better chance of sticking to a regular practice.
Start the New Year out moving.
