‘New year, new me’ is all the buzz at the beginning of each year. You tell yourself that this year, you’ll become the healthiest and happiest version of yourself, only to look up a few months later and realize that your resolutions fell to the wayside and you’re back to your old habits. The truth is, we’ve all been there.
Although you may intend to make positive changes in your life, we understand that it can be challenging to stay motivated and committed to these resolutions throughout the year. If you’re struggling to stick to your healthy habits, try these easy tips to ensure you start on the right foot and stay on track with your new year’s resolutions for a healthy lifestyle.
Reassess your current lifestyle
The Multiply lifestyle quiz can help you identify areas of improvement in your life. Login to the Multiply app to do your quiz and get a better understanding of where you are in your health journey. You’ll also earn HealthReturns based on your Lifestyle Score.
A common mistake people make when trying to adopt a healthier lifestyle is trying to do too much too soon. Instead of trying to change everything at once, start with small changes that you can sustain over time. For example, if you want to start exercising regularly, start with a 10-minute walk every day and gradually increase your time and intensity.
Streamline your efforts
A health assessment can provide you with valuable information about your current health status and help you find any potential health risks. On the other hand, a fitness assessment can help you figure out your fitness level so you can create a personalized exercise plan that’s tailored to your needs. As a Multiply member, you get one free health assessment per year. If you haven’t already, head to the app to book yours.
Track your progress
Tracking your progress can help you stay motivated and on track with your goals. Use a journal or an app to keep track of your exercise routine and your healthy eating habits. Celebrate your small wins along the way to keep yourself motivated. Link your fitness device or app to the Multiply app to track your progress and earn rewards.
Join a community
A community of like-minded individuals is a great way to stay motivated. You can compete against members of similar age, activity level and gender in Multiply leaderboard challenges to challenge yourself and stay inspired.
