We have all made them and sometimes we even stick to them, but for many our failure to follow through can eat away at our confidence and self-esteem.

\n

But this needn’t be the case. Armed with a realistic and goal-focused plan and an understanding of the pitfalls you are likely to encounter is a proven\n way to achieve success.

\n

New Year’s resolutions can be a powerful tool when you have specific aspirations that you’re hoping to fulfil. And even if the New Year\n is slipping by, there is always time to make “New You” resolutions.

\n

The success rate of resolutions is up to 10 times higher than the success rate of adults desiring to change their behaviour but not making the effort to\n make a resolution. Keeping it “wishy-washy” is a road to frustration and failure. So, in other words, when you take the time to work out what it is\n you want to change, make a commitment and plan accordingly, good things happen. Lock yourself in. Surprise yourself.

\n

How to make a plan

\n

Often New Year’s Resolutions are about money or health so let’s do it. Document your goal. Put together a plan. Lock yourself in and surprise yourself.\n Make it the “New You” resolution.

\n

\n
\n

\n

Thinking ‘SMART’ when setting goals is a great tool to check the strength or your plan. Using the world ‘SMART’ as an\n acronym we are reminded of the five things we need to remember step-by -step and letter-by-letter when goal-setting. We need to make our goals:

\n

Specific\n

\n

Measurable\n

\n

Attainable\n

\n

Realistic\n

\n

Timely\n

\n

A S.M.A.R.T health goal could be:“I want to lose 10 kilos by June 1st, 2018.”\n

\n

1.Specific- weight loss- tick - you have decided to lose weight and you have locked it in.

\n

2.Measurable -10 kilos- tick - you have decided on the amount you would like to lose and you have locked it in.

\n

3.Attainable - tick - you have decided on an achievable goal and you have locked it in.

\n

4.Realistic - tick - you have decided on something realistic for you, not a fantasy fiction, and you have locked it in.

\n

5.Timely - tick - once again, you have decided on a time-frame to achieve your goal, and you have locked it in.

\n

\n
\n

\n

So you’ve got your SMART goal, but there's one more thing that needs to be put in place to increase the likelihood of meeting your goals: ACTION STEPS.\n

\n

Once you have set your S.M.A.R.T goal, it's much easier to create your road map, or action steps for reaching your goal.

\n

For the goal: I want to lose 10 kilos by June 1st, 2018, some action steps could be:

\n
    \n
  1. I will schedule exercise sessions each week for example; 45 minutes X 4 times a week
  2. \n
  3. I will pack my lunch & snacks each day to help with avoiding my afternoon sweet-fix.
  4. \n
  5. I will pre-plan my meals for the week
  6. \n
  7. I will walk with Mary on Monday and Wednesday mornings for 45 minutes.
  8. \n
  9. I will pre-book appointments with an exercise physiologist to get some specific core strength exercises and make sure I keep them
  10. \n
  11. I will keep a simple food and exercise diary each day (this could be online, on a smartphone app or on paper)
  12. \n
  13. I will do the grocery shopping once a week so I have healthy food in the house
  14. \n
\n

I'm sure you get the picture... basically, the point is to get specific and become accountable on a day to day basis and success will follow.

\n

If you want to make a change but are unsure what your goals or action plan should (or could) look like, simplify the process by recruiting the help of\n your Accredited Pracitising Dietitian. Your Dietitian is a knowledgeable, experienced, qualified professional who does this every day. Happy New You!

New Year’s Resolutions or just “New You” Resolutions

by Ethos Health - 25 Jan 2018

We have all made them and sometimes we even stick to them, but for many our failure to follow through can eat away at our confidence and self-esteem.

But this needn’t be the case. Armed with a realistic and goal-focused plan and an understanding of the pitfalls you are likely to encounter is a proven way to achieve success.

New Year’s resolutions can be a powerful tool when you have specific aspirations that you’re hoping to fulfil. And even if the New Year is slipping by, there is always time to make “New You” resolutions.

The success rate of resolutions is up to 10 times higher than the success rate of adults desiring to change their behaviour but not making the effort to make a resolution. Keeping it “wishy-washy” is a road to frustration and failure. So, in other words, when you take the time to work out what it is you want to change, make a commitment and plan accordingly, good things happen. Lock yourself in. Surprise yourself.

Often New Year’s Resolutions are about money or health so let’s do it. Document your goal. Put together a plan. Lock yourself in and surprise yourself. Make it the “New You” resolution.


Thinking ‘SMART’ when setting goals is a great tool to check the strength or your plan. Using the world ‘SMART’ as an acronym we are reminded of the five things we need to remember step-by -step and letter-by-letter when goal-setting. We need to make our goals:

2.Measurable -10 kilos- tick - you have decided on the amount you would like to lose and you have locked it in.

4.Realistic - tick - you have decided on something realistic for you, not a fantasy fiction, and you have locked it in.

5.Timely - tick - once again, you have decided on a time-frame to achieve your goal, and you have locked it in.
