Some of us proclaim it on social media. Some of us silently write it in a journal. Whatever your intention, goal or resolution is this new year—or however you say it—sticking to it can be, well, not easy. Willpower is a tricky thing, but just because your 2019 goals don’t come to fruition every single day doesn’t mean you’ve failed!
Whether you’re wanting to love yourself a *little* more or are looking to try a new type of fitness, life happens, and we are constantly evolving. That’s why we asked MINDBODY team members for some honest input and real-life tips when it comes to achieving all the great things this new year.
“Whether it's in your journal or on a Post-It note stuck on your mirror so you see it every morning, write it down. Also, remind yourself that it's not a race. The new year doesn't mean you have to change your life completely. Do small, meaningful things if you need to.”
— Erica Arvanitis, Copywriter
“Book a class with a friend! Pick a workout on the MINDBODY app and share it with your besties. You get to hold yourself accountable and catch up after the holidays, plus you get built-in cheerleaders to help you accomplish your goals. It’s win-win!”
— Devin Dilday, Social Media Manager
“I live by my calendar so on New Year’s Day I added recurring events for all the new year priorities: calling my dad more often, booking my classes, taking time for self-care. If they’re on the calendar, they are 100% more likely to happen and if they are recurring it will serve as a reminder throughout the year.”
—Mariah McFarland, Manager, Product Management
“Finding one area to focus on in your personal life is key for when it comes to a refresh this new year. By finding that one thing you want to improve on or start, you place your positive energy in a single place—laying a foundation for success. Oh, and it’s never too late to set an intention!”
— Brittany Raine Parry, Team Lead, Marketing Content
“Add your workouts to your calendar and block off time before and after to change and stick to your goals in the new year.”
— Ryan Greenwald, Product Manager
“Register for a race or competition. It'll make you accountable to regular workouts and you'll meet a fun community of like-minded folks!”
— Kyle Magin, Senior Copywriter
“Schedule your workouts in advance. Every week take a look at your calendar and book your week out. Booking at least 2-3 workouts in advance will ensure you go to class and you’re prepared for the week ahead!"
— Julia Medwid, Project Manager
