What Julie DeLucca-Collins can say in an interview on
5 Weekly Habits:
Many people set new goals at the start of the new year. Keeping up with new habits during the week is not difficult for some, however, when the weekend arrives, we get derailed from our goals. Here are 5 great tips you can incorporate into your weekend plans that can set you up for success for the upcoming week and make you feel confident.
1. Create a plan and schedule it. Most people want to relax and make the weekend fun and easy. The trouble is that if we are trying to create new habits we must keep consistent during the weekend as well. Make a plan for the weekend, be intentional with your time, and know when you can fit in your workouts, etc. Lack of planning is one of the main reasons we tend to be derailed on the weekends. Share your calendar with others. If you schedule a workout, tell others what you are doing. This way, your priorities will be at the forefront. Habits that can help you gain confidence for your week may include meal prepping, and time blocking your calendar to prioritize, and balance work and home life.
2. Revisit your goals. It is important to remind yourself of the goals you have, and why you want to accomplish your goals. Many individuals put their goals and habits on hold during the weekend. By not revisiting what you are working towards and why allows people to revert to doing the habits we are trying to change. Make sure your goals and the reason behind the new habits you are working on achieving are something you keep present. Crating this awareness will help you stay focused and not feel like you are starting all over on Monday morning.
3. Share your goals and build accountability. Goals take time, hard work, perseverance, and commitment to achieve. When you are accountable to someone or a group of people for doing what you said you would do, you can easily get stuff done because you engage the power of social expectations. The American Society of Training and Development (ASTD) did a study on accountability and found that you have 65% of completing a goal if you commit to someone. Choose your spouse, a reliable friend, or friends and tell them what your goal is and why it is important for you to achieve it.
4. Think ahead. Ask yourself, “how do you want to feel at the end of the weekend?” This thought can help you generate the actions and thoughts that will help you stay motivated and on track to achieve your goals and consistently work on your habits. If you want to feel proud of your eating, or you want to feel strong, you will take action on the things that will generate those feelings.
5. Evaluate what needs to be improved at the end of your weekend. Our weekend is 30% of our week. if you are stumbling or not working toward your goals over the weekend, you will not see enough success to motivate us and keep us going. It is important to know that even the things that go wrong, can teach us lessons, will help us recalibrate, and learn. Gaining traction and success mean we practice new habits. The more we learn from our mistakes and grow from them, the more likely we are to reach our goals.
