How to Walk Toward Your New Year’s Resolutions

The advent of a new year is the perfect opportunity to make those changes that you know will enhance your life. If your New Year’s resolutions include a desire to lose weight, get healthier or simply establish new lifestyle habits, you may already be fretting over how to stay true to your objectives instead of just making empty promises to yourself. Here are some ways to turn those resolutions into realities.


Play it SMART. Resolving to achieve a goal isn’t enough – the goal must also be SMART. The letters in this acronym stands for Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Time-bound. For instance, if you want to lose weight, decide on a doable number of pounds to be lost in X amount of time, choose a method that will get you there and track your progress on the scale.


Remove obstacles. Once you’ve decided on a fitness regimen to help you achieve your resolution, think about the potential obstacles and ways of working around them. If the weather in your part of the world makes daily walks uncomfortable or treacherous, have your Walkslide standing by so you can get the necessary workout in the comfort of your own home.


Enlist a partner. Everything is more fun when it’s shared, including resolutions. Do you have a relative or co-worker working toward a similar resolution? Get a pair of Walkslides and schedule your workouts together, or at least agree to keep each other honest about your progress. When you both achieve your goals, the success will feel twice as sweet!


Walking your way toward better health and/or a slimmer waistline is a resolution well worth keeping – one that help ensure that you’re around to see many more New Years. Make Walkslide the first step in your successful mission!
