Why I Hate New Year New You
As the fireworks fade and the confetti settles, we’re left with the echoing promise of “New Year, New You” but what’s the real score on turning those well-intended resolutions into lasting change? We all know the drill: as soon as January 1st hits, we’re bombarded with the ‘New Year, new you’ mantra, but how often does this actually translate into long-term success? I discuss the startling statistics that reveal the quick drop-off rate of resolution adherence and consider the underlying reasons why so many of us find ourselves in this repetitive cycle. While acknowledging the pitfalls of impulsively set goals, I share the brighter side of using moments of optimism, like the New Year, to catalyse genuine, sustainable change.
In this conversation, I stress the importance of setting specific, actionable objectives rather than vague ambitions like ‘losing weight’ or ‘eating healthier’. I recount my own holiday experiences and how returning to a well-structured routine has helped me maintain my well-being goals. You’ll hear why digging deep to find your ‘why’ can be a game-changer, offering a more meaningful pursuit than just chasing numbers on a scale. It’s all about equipping you with the mindset and tools to create a lifestyle change that is not just enduring but also enjoyable.
Finally, I emphasise the crucial role that professionals play in guiding us toward our health goals. Whether it’s a nutritionist, a personal trainer, or another expert, having that structured support can make all the difference. But I also recognise that not everyone can access these resources, so I offer practical advice for starting small and making manageable adjustments to your lifestyle. Remember, it’s about balance and finding what works for you as an individual. Join us as we navigate the world of resolutions and redefine what it means to have a truly ‘Happy New Year’.
