As the new year begins, many seek to begin the year with healthy habits. Whether you are planning to eat healthier, get more rest, begin a new workout, or enhance your existing workout routine, the first step is planning, followed by getting started.
When you make the best choice for you, motivation and energy come more easily. At NW Women’s Fitness, our personal trainers and food coaches are here to guide you through an effective plan that will work for you!
Let’s explore all the tips to help you begin the new year with fresh, healthy habits.
1. Jumpstart Your Health with NWWF Balance Habits KickStart Program
This year you can jumpstart your health with NW Women’s Fitness Balanced Habits KickStart program or add accountability with our Balance Habits Life program. Each of the exclusive programs are designed to meet your needs with short and long term options. Offering guidance, nutrition, and knowledge, the NWWF Balanced Habits programs can help you lose weight and get healthy in a smart way that is sustainable for life.
Balanced Habits pairs you with a BH Certified Food Coach who then works with you to create a personalized eating plan to achieve your goals while keeping your lifestyle, limitations, and preferences in mind. The program is based on the philosophy “there are no bad foods, just bad portion sizes” and is focused on balanced, practical eating. Without food eliminations or restrictions, you have the freedom to enjoy the foods you love, supported by your Coach who helps you develop the strategies which work uniquely for you.

2. Start with Small, Achievable Goals for the New Year
Many people begin the journey to new healthy habits with lofty goals that are hard to maintain over the long term. Instead, why not start with small, achievable goals, like working out one more day per week than you have in the past or cutting out an hour of binge watching television each week.
As you succeed with these smaller goals you will be encouraged to keep moving forward accomplishing bigger goals and better habits throughout the remainder of the year. Take each new habit a step further, and soon you will see healthy habits form to last a lifetime.
3. Keep Your Goals Specific
Do not make vague goals for new healthy habits, rather choose specific and concrete goals which can be measured and have a timeline. Setting a vague goal for improving your health over the coming year will not get you as far as a well-thought out plan that includes a strategic meal plan (see NWWF Balance Habits above) and do-able workout sessions with one of our experienced personal trainers. Always choose a specific goal which you can realistically manage in the coming days and soon you will be well on your way to accomplishing healthy habits and goals in the new year.
4. Add Accountability to Keep You On Track
Finding a friend or a like-minded community can help you stick to your goal of creating healthy habits in the coming year. Ask a friend, who is also committed to new healthier habits, to commit to being your new gym partner or seek out a NWWF personal trainer to set weekly appointments to reach your unique goals. Another great option is joining a group fitness class, where workouts are fun and effective, and you can meet new friends who have like-minded goals.

5. Start Your Mornings Right
How you start your morning can have a profound and positive effect on your day. Get your productive day by making your bed and then preparing a healthy breakfast. A good breakfast is known to boost your metabolism, helping you better burn calories during the day. On top of that, a healthy breakfast helps replenish your brain and your muscles to get your body’s rhythm off to the right start.
6. Exercise Smart
Exercise offers long-term and short-term benefits. In fact, the benefits of exercise include lower levels of stress, better moods, and an enhanced ability to focus. Exercise can help you get your body fit as you lose unwanted weight, and for the long term, exercise can help prevent health problems, including heart disease and diabetes.
7. Sleep Well
Restful sleep is the key to good health, allowing your body to rest and recover. Quality sleep helps improve cognitive performance and decreases the risk of anxiety and depression. Lack of sleep can also lead to weight gain over time.
Getting the proper rest starts with developing a healthy sleep ritual. A sleep routine allows your body to become accustomed to sleeping during specific hours. Consider using an app which plays ambient sounds or reading a bit before bed to help you fall asleep easily. Once you discover your unique circadian rhythm, you will easily find a healthy sleep pattern.
