How a Fitness Holiday Can Change Your Wellbeing for Good

It’s likely that you may have started the New Year by setting fitness goals – whether to eat more healthily, live a more active lifestyle, or perhaps to take up an activity such swimming or yoga.

However we have just passed January 12th. Known as “Quitters Day” research shows that this is the date on which your motivation to stick with those resolutions wanes. An astounding 80% of people fail to stick to their New Year’s Resolutions.

Upon reflection, we find this unsurprising. January is rather a cruel month – for many of us in the Western hemisphere the weather may be dull and dreary, daylight is in short supply, and while the magic of Christmas has faded, we are left with a few more months of winter.

So rather than bemoan your lack of willpower, why not instead focus on changing habits at a time when you feel relaxed, optimistic and full of energy – when you’re on vacation!

Getting Motivated

Starting a fitness regime requires some adjustment to your usual habits. It’s all too easy to think ‘I’ll start the diet tomorrow” or “I’ll sign up at the gym next month” and then normal life has a habit of getting in the way.

It’s an overused phrase, but every journey starts with that first step, and this very much applies to your path to fitness and wellbeing. By taking yourself away from your day to day life, you are putting yourself in an excellent position to start to make changes that will lead you to a healthier lifestyle.

Of course, the key is to stay motivated once you arrive home. Top personal trainers suggest that shifting your thinking about fitness and goal setting are key to keeping to your healthier regime. Take time throughout your vacation to set goals that you can stick to and that match your daily life.
