It’s that time of the year.
The long holidays are over, and a new year has begun. It’s during this time when people are busy posting status updates about their new year resolutions on their social media platforms.
The beginning of a new year is a special time that one needs to reflect and plan his or her future. A new year brings new opportunities that can transform our lives in ways we cannot imagine. It is crucial to have eyes of wisdom to grab every opportunity that comes our way.
Many people try to achieve their dreams and ambitions by setting New Year’s resolutions; this is a good strategy; however, it fails more often for many people.
The main reason why this strategy fails on many people is that it lacks strategic planning and methodology. Most people tend to be focused on the desired outcomes and not the planning that will lead to the outcome.
Today we discuss some of the reasons why starting a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu should be on your 2020 new year’s resolution checklist. Before we get to explain the reasons why you should begin to a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, let’s get to know the most popular New Year’s resolutions that most people make.
Most Popular New Year’s Resolutions
The top three new year’s resolutions that everyone is always making when a new year begins are:
- Losing weight
- Staying fit and healthy
- Enjoying life to the fullest
These resolutions are equally crucial to every individual out there; the problem with these resolutions is that they do not last. The reason why they do no last is that most people practice the old habits that they used the previous year to achieve the above resolutions.
Most people will plan on running; however, after some time, running becomes boring, not unless you are passionate about running. If it’s about losing weight, most people discipline themselves to a specific diet; however, losing weight requires more than just adjusting your diet.
Doing things differently is the key to achieving the resolutions mentioned above. It’s about time you changed your programmed behaviors and found new ways that are interactive and fun —that can help you achieve the resolutions mentioned above.
This is why beginning a BJJ should be your 2020 New Year resolution. BJJ is a martial arts sport that can help you lose weight, stay fit & healthy, and enjoy your life to the fullest.
Reasons why starting BJJ should be your top New Year resolution
If your goal by the end of 2020 is to stay fit and healthy, then starting a BJJ class can help you with that goal and desire. A lot of physical effort is required when practicing BJJ. This physical effort strengthens your muscles, making your body fit. BJJ practitioners will notice some improvements in their physical ability and their cardio. BJJ practitioners are known to have healthy lifestyles.
By attending the BJJ classes for a couple of weeks, you will begin to lose weight if you were overweight at the beginning of the year. The physical exercise that you get from the BJJ classes is enough to help you lose weight. In these classes, you will meet new people who later become longtime friends, and this will lead to a life that’s enjoyed to the fullest.
Starting a BJJ class can be a daunting task; however, through persistence and commitment, you will get used to it. There are a lot of benefits of BJJ not discussed here; however, all I can tell you is this. Do it, make 2020 the year you submit to discipline.
