New Year's Resolutions for Athletes
With the year coming to an end, most are looking back on 2020 and evaluating what they were able to accomplish and what they weren’t able to. But as people are looking to the past, they are also looking forward to the future. They are mostly looking ahead and thinking about what they want to do and what they plan to accomplish in the year to come. The start of a new year also signals a fresh start, a time where they plan to make changes that they feel will benefit them in both the short and long term. For most, 2020 has not been the best year, and there is a desire to improve the year to come. To make good on this promise and take advantage of the next year’s opportunities, we recommend that you make bolder New Year's Resolutions this year.
