No matter what your biggest goal is this year, you can be sure that fitness will play a role in whether or not you’ll accomplish it. There are good reasons why. The fitter you are, the better your cognitive thinking. The more energy you have and etc. While getting may not be your top priority on your goal list, it should be toward the top of your goal setting list. Even if you already workout regularly, you should expand your horizons and enjoy the benefits of variety.
Is your biggest goal a work goal?
Achievement at work is often one of the top goals on people’s lists. They tend to focus on it at the expense of other areas of their life, including relationships and fitness. That’s a huge mistake. If you’re not focusing on all areas of your life, it can deter from your work performance. Lack of communication and focus can ruin a marriage or relationship. That can impede your work goals. A program of healthy eating and regular exercise can actually help you land that big promotion by making you look more confident. One study showed that people often thought that people who were overweight were lazy. While everyone knows that’s not true, shedding extra pounds, getting and staying fit can make you look like a go-getter and executive material.
Being a better person may mean improving your disposition.
If you start to notice you’re a bit of a snark, it may be time to head to the gym. While the workout can benefit you physically, it also can help you soothe a sour disposition. Exercising on a regular basis can burn off the hormones of stress. It also stimulates the brain to replace those hormones with ones that make you feel good. Combine that with the feeling of satisfaction you get from looking and feeling better and you have a head start on becoming the best you possible.
Is your goal to take a great adventure and travel.
Hold your horses. You need to do a bunch of planning and preparation before you take that dream vacation. One of the top priority items to insure you enjoy your trip to the max is getting fit and building your endurance. If you’re hiking through the rain forest or to see the remnants of an ancient Mayan village, you want to have the energy to make it all the way without frequent stopping. The same holds true for a Disney vacation or other type of trip. Being fit makes it more fun.

– Even the biggest, almost impossible goal can be reached. You can break it down to smaller goals to achieve to take you to your final destination.
– When you list your goals, not only include a time frame, but also the steps you’ll take to achieve that goal.
