This year at New Way Health Coach, we’d like to challenge you to stop waiting for the new year to set your health resolutions. While festivities may bring joy and celebration, they are often accompanied by overindulgences and disrupted routines, making it challenging to uphold healthy habits and even more challenging to correct course once the holidays are over. But, if you establish sustainable resolutions beforehand, you get to navigate the holiday season with more balance and mindfulness, ensuring your well-being remains the top priority. There’s no reason to wait until the new year to make a commitment to yourself.
Setting sustainable resolutions involves identifying realistic and attainable goals that align with your lifestyle and wellness aspirations. Rather than adopting temporary fads or taking extreme measures, we encourage you to focus on cultivating lasting habits that promote holistic wellness. For many, holiday goals will be about maintaining what you have rather than making radical changes, as the holidays are difficult enough as it is. You want habits you can keep, whatever the weather. This approach lays the groundwork for sustainable change before, during, and after the holiday season.
What your health resolutions will look like depends on you! But at New Way Health Coach, we believe that true wellness comes from a holistic approach. We encourage all of our clients to look beyond just moderation in diet, and focus on their mental health, movement, and sleep hygiene practices as well. What’s most important is that your goals are both reachable and sustainable. Every year, people break their resolutions because they set extreme goals and feel disheartened when they fall short. In these moments it’s important to remember that “failure” is just the beginning phase of success!
This is where our Holidays the New Way Program comes in. Maybe you’ve just finished our Holistic Weight Loss Program, and are looking to keep your hard-earned results! Or you know how much the holidays affect your mental health and clarity. Regardless of your specific health goals, this monthly group program is designed to help you through the holiday season and beyond with monthly meetings, resources, and access to our Healthie app. We believe that with a commitment to your pre-holiday resolutions (and a little support), you can maintain your ideal lifestyle and carry it into the new year.
