Here’s How We Are Staying Honest When It Comes to Our New Years Goals

Personal Growth
Fitness

Some of us proclaim it on social media. Some of us silently write it in a journal. Whatever your intention, goal or resolution is this new year—or however you say it—sticking to it can be, well, not easy. Willpower is a tricky thing, but just because your goals don’t come to fruition every single day doesn’t mean you’ve failed!

Whether you’re wanting to love yourself a *little* more or are looking to try a new type of fitness, life happens, and we are constantly evolving. That’s why we asked MINDBODY team members for some honest input and real-life tips when it comes to achieving all the great things this new year. 

 


#1: Write it out. 

2019 writing goals

“Whether it's in your journal or on a Post-It note stuck on your mirror so you see it every morning, write it down. Also, remind yourself that it's not a race. The new year doesn't mean you have to change your life completely. Do small, meaningful things if you need to.”

Erica Arvanitis, Copywriter 

 

#2: Invite your squad to your sweat sesh.

“Book a class with a friend! Pick a workout on the MINDBODY app and share it with your besties. You get to hold yourself accountable and catch up after the holidays, plus you get built-in cheerleaders to help you accomplish your goals. It’s win-win!”  

Devin Dilday, Social Media Manager

 

#3: Make room in your calendar.

“I live by my calendar so on New Year’s Day I added recurring events for all the new year priorities: calling my dad more often, booking my classes, taking time for self-care. If they’re on the calendar, they are 100% more likely to happen and if they are recurring it will serve as a reminder throughout the year.”

Mariah McFarland, Manager, Product Management 

 

#4: Get specific. 

“Finding one area to focus on in your personal life is key for when it comes to a refresh this new year. By finding that one thing you want to improve on or start, you place your positive energy in a single place—laying a foundation for success. Oh, and it’s never too late to set an intention!”

 Brittany Raine Parry, Team Lead, Marketing Content

 

#5: Find time to work out. 

“Add your workouts to your calendar and block off time before and after to change and stick to your goals in the new year.”

Ryan Greenwald, Product Manager

 

#6: Sign up for something outside of your comfort zone.

“Register for a race or competition. It'll make you accountable to regular workouts and you'll meet a fun community of like-minded folks!”

Kyle Magin, Senior Copywriter 

 

#7: Be prepared. 

“Schedule your workouts in advance. Every week take a look at your calendar and book your week out. Booking at least 2-3 workouts in advance will ensure you go to class and you’re prepared for the week ahead!"

breast cancer awareness month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month—Here’s How You Can Make a Difference

Approximately 12,000 women aged 40 or younger are diagnosed with breast cancer every year*. Fortunately, there are preventative steps that we can take to help protect ourselves and each other—one of the best ones being exercise. That’s right. Not only does exercise help us release endorphins, but just 30 minutes of exercise three to four times per week can help decrease a person’s risk of developing breast cancer by 30–50%*.

This is hope in a statistic. Just by adopting a more healthy, active lifestyle, we could prevent the risk of developing breast cancer, while also inspiring others to reduce their risk as well. Keep A Breast Foundation has made doing just this their mission through their annual fundraising campaign, Fit 4 Prevention.

Every October, studios from all over the globe participate by raising money through donation-based workout classes for the Keep A Breast Foundation (KAB). They have created a national movement dedicated to educating others about breast cancer prevention through fitness and wellness—something Mindbody is extremely passionate about. Participating in your favorite activities, all while supporting, preventing, and spreading awareness about breast cancer awareness? Let’s get moving.

Encourage your favorite studio to sign up for the event

If you want to take a donation-based class at your favorite studio, encourage your favorite studios to sign up to bring your community closer together in a meaningful way. Registering is quick and easy. If you think your local studio may be interested in participating, have them check out KAB’s help pagewhere they can learn how to register for a donation-based class during the month of October. KAB even has a social media kit available to fitness studios to help them promote their donation-based classes.  

Other ways to help

Can’t find a local studio to take a donation-based class near you? Don’t worry, you can still give your support by donating directly to KAB’s website. Luckily, any time that you are moving your body and spreading the word—you’re doing your part in spreading awareness on how to help prevent breast cancer. That is beyond amazing.

This October, we hope you’ll join us in our plight to support the KAB Foundation and its mission to help prevent breast cancer through cultivating a healthier, more active lifestyle. Through movement, health, and wellness—we can reach great heights, together.
