New Year Pep Talk!
12 Jan 2011
With every year seemingly flying by faster and faster, it’s hardly surprising most of us feel that we are barely along for the ride. One moment we’re setting New Year resolutions, and then before we know it we’re scrambling to buy last minute Christmas presents and wondering where all the time went, convincing ourselves that next year we’ll do it better! (I will lose weight, I will stop smoking, I won’t spend so much money).
Did you know that 30% of people break their New Year resolutions in week one? And that by the end of February, 90% of people have given up entirely? Not great odds, shame on us!
But with depressing stats like these flying around (sorry about that) it’s no wonder we’re some what defeatist. So the LC thought we’d share some more optimistic numbers to help you past spring (at the very least!)…
Did you know that you are 90% more likely to take part in regular exercise if you do it with a partner - neighbour, sister, work colleague, wife, goldfish – take your pick!
An hour of shopping can burn up to 325 calories while recent research has shown that an hour of kissing can burn up to 150 calories - Definitely something to smile about!
50% off Waterpark entry at the LC Mon-Fri until 28th January – Who said exercise had to be boring or pricey!
Getting regular support and advice can boost motivation and increase your weekly physical activity, so don’t be afraid to ask for help! Keep your spirits up, think positive and before you know it you’ll be scrambling for last minute Christmas presents AGAIN but maybe a few pounds lighter!
Good Luck and Happy New Year!
