As we end the year 2021, how many of your New Year’s resolutions or goals did you achieve? Do you even remember what you had planned for your best year yet? The most popular resolutions for 2021 were exercising more and improving fitness, losing weight, saving money, and improving diet. If we are intending to achieve these goals, why do we continue to make them a focus? It’s because we don’t focus on our habits and behaviors to achieve our goals.
When you think of planning a big vacation, do you just write “Travel to Cabo?” and then just hope that it happens? No, you consider the investment it will take. You book flights, hotels, activities. You take time off of work. You buy travel gear and clothing. You might join a Facebook group or travel forum to find people who have taken that trip before. You do all these things because this is a fun goal and one that doesn’t take much unwanted thinking.
Now, imagine that you have a desired goal to exercise more and improve your fitness. Why not approach it the same way.
Consider the investment. A new study found that adults who consistently exercised at moderate or high levels saved between $1,200 and $1,350 annually in health-care costs compared to adults who were inactive from adolescence into middle age. You can count this as a bonus goal because you will actually be saving money and time by improving your fitness.
