Climbers' New Year’s Resolutions
Whether you’ve already been thinking about your 2019 goals and ambitions, here are some suggestions for a fulfilling and flourishing climbing year…
1) Set realistic goals

Sometimes it can be easy to give up the goals you settled because they were either too ambitious, irrealistic, or ambiguous. Setting precise and measurable goals will help you focusing your efforts and will keep you motivated. Make short and long-term goals, it will be easier to see your advancement and you’ll feel better to see that you’re on good path!
2) Push past your limits

This is slightly linked with goals setting. Failing is part of climbing, so don't be afraid of that. Trust yourself and go beyond your limits, the reward when you’ll pass will be huge!
3) Take a friend climbing

To start the year, why not introducing a friend to climbing and bringing someone new in the community ? You probably heard about the sport by a friend or family, now it’s your turn to return the favor. Ice on the cake, you might earn yourself a new climbing mate ;-)
4) Wear a helmet

When it comes to safety and wearing a climbing helmet or not, inconsistency is everywhere. Many climbers tend to make day-by-day decisions about wearing it or not. And yet, head injuries in climbing are potentially catastrophic and they are too many accidents every year. So protect your brain at all costs!
5) Try a new style of climbing

Seeing something new and changing a bit our habits is really good for motivation! Try out a different form of climbing and keep your enthusiasm fresh.
6) Be respectful of the environment

After a bouldering session, do your best to leave things better than you find it at the crag: brush off your chalk, remove any tick marks, pick up trash and have a general tidy-up before you leave.
