Happy New Year, Texans!

Whether you’re an avid proponent of New Year’s resolutions, or you’re the type of person who rolls their eyes when they hear the phrase, we know that you have goals that you would like to achieve, and the new year is a wonderful time to start fresh.

However, it can be incredibly difficult to just jump right into a new lifestyle, especially after you spend a couple of weeks lavishing in the holidays.

That’s where we come in. We want to help you keep those resolutions all year long. Check out our sure-fire tips on keeping your resolutions, as well as a few local spots to help you along the way.

  1. Start broad

The prospect of the new-and-improved-you can be so exciting, but it can also be a bit overwhelming, especially if your goals are specific and lofty. It might be tempting to hit the gym during January and aim to work out an hour every day, but that kind of behavior will burn you out quickly.

Instead, plan broader long-term goals. For example, you may want to make your resolution something like making your health a priority or adding a new wellness practice, instead. By doing this, you give yourself a bit more flexibility and focus on a bigger, broader goal.

Here are some of our favorite local wellness spots to get you started out:

If you’re ready to take your workout to the next level, try Elemental Yoga and the Mind Arts or Indigo Yoga.

If you want to focus on wellness, try North Texas Whole Health Wellness Center

If you want to relax more, try Silk Thai Massage & Spa or Massage Bliss and Cyro (for something a little different.)

  1. Be realistic about your number of resolutions

You also want to be realistic when setting your goals. No one goes to sleep on Dec. 31 as one person and wakes up on Jan. 1 as a whole new person.

Instead, our suggestion is to pick the one resolution (or max three) that you think may be able to lead you to other healthier practices or goals. For example, say your three resolutions are to:

– Start journaling

– Start jogging each week

– Visit more local museums

By wanting to start journaling or jogging, for example, you are automatically working on your mental health and wellness. Jogging, for example, may lead you to wake up earlier and then accomplish more tasks.

By wanting to visit more museums, you’re automatically getting out more, increasing your education and supporting local businesses. And if you haven’t checked out, Psychedelic Robot or Museum of Illusions, make sure to add those to your list.

  1. Start anytime!

If you’re someone who loves the symbolism of the new year to make changes to your life, we want to suggest using the first month of the new year as the transitional period. But that doesn’t mean you can’t start a new goal or resolution any time of the year. If you’ve missed the Jan. 1 resolution start date, that doesn’t mean your goals for the year are over. Instead, pick a date to start your new goals. Maybe the first of every month or the first Monday of each week. This will help you keep on track without feeling like you have one chance to get things right.
