28 Jan, 2022
1. Be More Informed About Your Body To Help You Stay On Track
Did you know, a study looking at diet found that a personalised approach to nutrition was more effective than a one-size-fits-all approach? This is because personalisation acts as a motivator to eat a healthier diet and maintain a healthier lifestyle (compared to generic advice).

2. Get SMART: Turn Your Resolutions Into Goals
SMART is an acronym used commonly when setting goals that stands for Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant and Time-Bound. Often used in the boardroom, this formula can be used for all goals in your life, including health and wellness. By following the SMART formula, you become clearer on what you want to achieve and how you are going to get there – a recipe for success! Read our article on A Guide To Setting Your Health & Wellness Resolutions For 2022, which gives you the step by step process to set your own SMART goals!
3. Make Sure The Journey Is Enjoyable – A Happiness First Approach
It’s a common belief that success equates to happiness. But here’s some food for thought, a study found that it’s actually happiness that leads to success. This is because happy people are more likely to take on new goals that reinforce their happiness and other positive emotions (such as excitement, joy, and serenity). This endeavour to set new goals is what makes happy people successful.
As such, to be successful in sticking to your health and wellness resolutions this year, it’s important the journey promotes feelings of happiness, joy and excitement! This makes sense when you think about it. If you’re someone who hates working out alone, waking up at 6am to slog out a solo workout isn’t going to motivate you to get out of bed. However, change this to a social spin class with your bestie, you’ll be there for sure! As working out becomes your new normal and you associate positive feelings with working out, you’ll be more likely to seek out new workouts that challenge you. Similarly, if you’re someone who wants to eat healthier but hasn’t touched a fruit or vegetable in years, don’t suddenly overhaul your diet. Instead, start off small by aiming for a serve of veg at lunch or dinner each day. This will get the ball rolling for your resolution, where the positive feelings of accomplishment and happiness for succeeding will motivate you to continue setting new healthy goals.
