New Year – January Part One
Hello and welcome to this week’s blog, the first one in the New Year…
HAPPY NEW YEAR! I hope that you have had a lovely Christmas and festive season and are ready and raring to go for the new year…. Which usually entails the ‘New You’ moniker to be rolled out on everything from gyms and health centres to clothing and other brands. Even the main aisle in the supermarket is full of new home inspiration. With décor and cleaning materials a-go-go to convince you need to overhaul last year and be completely new. But why?
New Year, New You
Do you really need a whole new you? Or a whole new house for that matter?
And my opinion on the matter is this-
New You? No Way!
What is wrong with the old you? The old you lead you to today successfully, lead you to take the decision to seek help for your pain and discomfort, to say ‘enough!’. The old you is plenty good enough. You do not need a new you at all… maybe just some new habits!
And it is the New Year after all. What if that is exactly the prompt your old you needs to push you to a better lifestyle, and some healthier habits? Where and how could you start?
If you want to get started but don’t know where or how, joining a gym like www.unitedsandc.co.uk could be good place to start. You’ll be surrounded by people seeking the same thing as you, as well as a place to go. Start with short workouts with a few days in between to recover. Until you find what works for you. You shouldn’t be exhausted or feeling broken at the end of your workout, so if you do, it was too much on that occasion.
The most important thing you can do for your health and wellness, is to be consistent with your exercise and activity. Going all in for a few months at the beginning of every new year and then tapering off and giving up by the summer is not going to help you much in the long run. Aim for less if it means you will be more consistent in the long term.
