Starting the year off with goals and high hopes to achieve better health is not a bad thing. However, you must be realistic when you set your goals for your New Year’s Resolutions. Did you know that 40-45% of American adults will make a New Year’s Resolution and less than 50% will succeed at it? Among the top are resolutions about losing weight, eating healthier and exercising more.
Consider these resolution tips to help you be successful:
- Focus on realistic goals with measurable results.
- Don’t keep your resolutions to yourself.
- Be patient and don’t give up; real change takes time, commitment and encouragement.
- Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Seek help from a qualified health professional for reliable and up-to-date information.
