January is one of the most exciting times of the year. Twelve months of potential, 53 weeks of adventures, and 365 days of possibilities are ahead of us. At Maximum Solutions, we want to ensure your health is off to a great start as you embark on a new year. If you have any health goals you want to meet this year, adopt our resolution mindset to set yourself up for success. First, be realistic about your goals and the time you have to dedicate to them. If you have a big end-of-year goal for the new year, break it into smaller goals you can reach throughout 2020. The first goal should be minor yet attainable. As the old saying goes, "You can do anything, but not everything." Set up a timeline with monthly goals and revisit them at the start of each month to see what you've accomplished. Sometimes tasks can get pushed back, so this is a great way to keep you on track. Next, it's important to recognize your progress when you've accomplished a smaller goal. It may seem frivolous, but celebrating those small steps will put your end-of-year goal and your progress into perspective. Even if you've accomplished half your goal, it's essential to recognize that win and plan for the next half. Regardless of your resolution, with an outline and a little organization, you can accomplish anything.

but when you break down that goal step by step, you’re holding yourself accountable to progress. Think of your plan as an instruction manual for attaining your goal. You don't want to miss a single step because each one lays the foundation for the next step toward your main goal. Even if you falter, you know by exactly how much and what it’s going to take to get back on track. For example, let's take a closer look at preparing for a half-marathon. Would you start training by immediately running a half-marathon every week? Of course not. You would start by running a few miles every week and adding a couple of miles here and there. If you miss a run, don't give up! Just make sure to add miles to your route the next time you train.

If your New Year's resolution has already gone bust, don't worry. But you need to keep pushing yourself. It's easy to quit your resolution early in the year, but if you do, you're preventing yourself from reaching your full potential. Remember to hold yourself to your goals and have leeway for yourself if you miss a step. Stumbling along the way is inevitable, but every day is a new day with the potential for you to reach new goals. Be sure to get your annual Maximum Solutions checkup to ensure you’re ready for the challenge ahead. Have a wonderful new year! –Dora Godnig

Finally, remember this: You can't be ready to run a half-marathon in a day,

–Cara Sadowski
