New Day Resolutions (#17)

“5… 4… 3… 2… 1… Happy New Year!!!”


Year after year there’s excitement to start off the New Year “fresh” by vowing to break bad habits and gain new skills. After all, we all know the universal New Year’s Day mantra: “This is it! This is my year! Time to take this year by storm and make the changes into a better new me!” 


Unfortunately, statistics show every year how this “new year, new me” phenomena is almost always short-lived. Some statistics even show how most New Year’s resolutions don’t even make it past January. But why? Thus, I present to you…New Day Resolutions!


That’s right: Here at Daily Fit Boost each day is a clean slate!


The ability to hit the ‘reset’ button on your mood and mindset each morning can have a profound impact along your Fitness Journey.


After all, if we really want to implement changes in our lifestyle why wait for a new year, right? By using each day as a new launching pad, not only do you reinforce your personal desires each day, you also begin to appreciate the value of each day.


No other person has expressed this philosophy better than Head Football Coach Chip Kelly who coaches with the mantra “Win the Day”. This mindset to win each day eventually turns into habit. Even if you’ve had a “bad day” and didn’t reach your goals, winning each day enables you to start each day afresh.

So what would one “win” look like for you today? Is it doing one push-up for the day? Is it arranging your gym clothes the night before?  Perhaps drinking more water than usual?

In my experience, the feeling of 365 daily victories is more satisfying than attaining one victory at the end of your goal.


So challenge yourself to make incremental changes daily instead of yearly. Start today with win #1! Before you know it, you’ll start noticing these daily victories leading to overall motivation and confidence.


Key Takeaways:

  • It’s proven year after year that New Year Resolutions are not ideal for success.
  • It’s much better to reinforce your goals (resolutions) each day to build habit
  • The mindset to “win each day” eventually becomes a habit.
  • Habit formation help build motivation and overall confidence.
