The beginning of a new year is the time when many of us are making commitments to our health and fitness. The only problem is most resolutions don’t make it past the month of January. Now is a great time to replace the idea of New Year’s resolutions with a focus on building sustainable habits that will last.

Here are a few tips to help you get those habits started for lasting success:

  1. Make goals ‘bite-sized’:
    Rather than committing to running amarathon, opt for goals that are achievable in the short term, like making time for recovery with proper stretching.

  2. Build it into your schedule:
    Consider adding a yoga or stretch session once a week to enhance recovery for your cardio and strength workouts. If it’s in the calendar, you’re more likely to stick with it in the long run and reap the lasting benefits.

  3. Stack new habits into existing ones:
    Another great way to hack your way to new healthy habits is to build onto your own successes. Adding five minutes of foam rolling after your existing workouts is another easy win.
