Live 3 Reasons To Start Your Resolutions in February Author: Tough Mudder January 30, 2020 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter How are your New Year’s resolutions coming along? If the answer is ‘not so well’ and a despondent shrug then you’re definitely not alone. Approximately 80% of resolutions fail by the second week of February, which means all of your good intentions are going to waste. If you want to turn those resolutions into habits then join us as we forgot January (it’s basically a trial month anyway) and kick start the new decade in February. Think we’re talking rubbish? Here are three reasons why you’re better off starting this month. January is the Worst Seriously. It’s cold, it’s dark, you’re in a constant hangover from all of the Christmas frivolity and you’ve got no money. January isn’t for new goals and pushing yourself, January is pure survival. In the first, never-ending month of the year you should be resting, recuperating and preparing so that when your resolution comes around (whether it’s getting fitter, saving money or trying more new things) you’re at your absolute best. February is the Shortest Month The final days of January are truly a slog. Which means if you’ve just started a new project or habit that first milestone is one hell of a long way off. February, on the other hand, is the shortest month of the year with just 29 days (damn leap year). Plus you’ll have more money in February, which makes pretty much everything easier. Start When Everyone Else Stops With most people ditching their resolutions there’s even more reason for you to get started. Not only because you’ll motivate all of your friends who just gave up but because if fitness is the aim of your game then the gym will be empty again, classes will have spaces and equipment will be back in stock – no excuses.
