More than half the year is gone and a few months remain until we hit 2015. Everyone starts out with vigour and promises at the beginning of the New Year. All of us make resolutions – I will lose weight I will quit smoking I will eat healthy I will commit to a relationship I will study I will spend more time with my family I will use the gym membership... the list is endless.You start out with gusto and focus. You have a plan in place the checklist is ready and you are all geared up to achieve your goals. The first few months are great; initially you are able to go to the gym spend more time with your family and are able to study better. You feel things are moving in the right direction. And then something happens and you slowly begin to slip.

Once again you miss a gym class find an excuse to eat a huge piece of cake and slowly fall back into the old patterns that you despise. And before you know it more than half the year has gone by with no major life change and you’re living the same old life that you hated so much. The good bit is that it’s not too late. With a few months remaining for the year to finish its time to reassess your goals and stop yourself from slipping further.

Let’s start by re-examining your goals for this year. Adjust the timeline and have a plan in place for getting yourself back on track. The first step is to have a support circle around you that will encourage you to embrace the change you are seeking. Join meet-ups or find people who are also looking to make the same change in their lives. The second step is to have small goals. One day at a time works better than having tonnes of goals and a long span of time to cover them. Have daily and weekly goals for yourself rather than monthly and yearly goals. Next create a vision board and fill it up with pictures and quotes that will motivate you to reach your goals for this year. You can display whatever you want on your vision board as long as it motivates you. Take control of your life and focus on what matters and what can be discarded. We spend way too much time on things that don’t matter while ignoring what is most important. Last but not least; take care of your mental health. Learn to meditate join a yoga class. The more relaxed you are the more focused you are likely to be. A calm and focused mind will help you to reassess your goals and help you to align your life at this point of time.
