5 Attainable New Years Goals
December 31, 2018
And just like that, the holidays have come and gone. We indulged in everything the holidays has to offer, from gifts to others (and ourselves) to our favorite sugary sweets. Now, we are reminded that we have a new year ahead. When we think of a new year, many of us think of one thing…resolutions. There is so much hype around creating lofty new year’s resolutions, when instead we should focus on setting attainable goals. While we still encourage you to aim high for the overarching goals you set for yourself, here are 5 achievable goals you can set with confidence in 2019:
Compliment Yourself Daily
Sadly, most of us look at ourselves in the mirror each day and find what’s wrong with what we see. Let’s stop that in 2019. Rather than thinking about what you want to change about yourself, think about why you love yourself. Each day you wake up and look at yourself in the mirror as you brush your teeth, give yourself a compliment. Whether it is ‘my hair looks fantastic today’ or ‘I handled that situation at work with extreme professionalism’, each small compliment will start your day on the right note, and over time you will learn to love yourself for all that you are.
Participate in a Bar Method Challenge
During this time of year, many of our studios host challenges to kick off 2019 right. These challenges are designed to encourage you to push your mind and body to attend a certain amount of classes within a specific date range. Many times, if you complete a challenge, you are awarded with a fun prize too! To start out the year, The Bar Method is holding the Love Yourself Challenge, where we have partnered with Beyond Yoga to encourage you to start the year strong and provide you with the chance to win a $150 Beyond Yoga gift card.

Drink More Water
Seems simple, right? Now don’t get us wrong, we love all the iced coffees and matcha lattes, but for every non-water beverage you consume, you should challenge yourself to drink two cups of water. One way to hold yourself accountable to drink more water daily is by keeping a reusable water bottle with you at all times. You can rep The Bar Method everywhere you go while staying hydrated by purchasing this trendy reusable bottle on our online store.
Donate to a Cause
Right up there with the feeling you get when completing a Bar Method class, is the feeling you get when you make someone smile. Make it a goal for yourself in 2019 to donate to a cause that is close to your heart. Remember that donations don’t always have to come in monetary form, you can donate your time too! So whether you volunteer at a local children’s hospital, make a donation to a cancer research foundation, or attend a respectful women’s march, you will be left with a warm heart and an eagerness to do more!
Give Yourself One Hour of ‘Me’ Time a Week
Many of us find ourselves scrambling, wishing there were more hours in a day. With so much to do and so much going on around us, putting aside one full hour for ourselves might seem bananas, but we promise your mind, body, and well-being will thank you for it. Before the week begins, try to plan when and what your ‘me’ time will be for the week. So whether it is a Bar Method class, a late night read before hitting the hay, or baking your favorite gooey brownie on a friday night in, MAKE THE TIME!
We hope that 2019 is a year filled with self-love, good health, and of course, Bar Method classes. If you have another goal to add to this list, be sure to share it with us in today’s social media post! Cheers to the new year!
