New Year Resolutions For 2013
Did you know that the # 1 New Year’s Resolution is to get fit or lose weight?
With New Year fast approaching, millions of Americans make Healthy New Year Resolutions, from improving health to spending more time with friends and family. The most popular New Year resolutions are to lose weight and get fit.
To achieve or maintain a healthy weight, we all know it’s important to make wise decisions about eating and physical activity every day. It sounds simple enough, but in today’s hectic world too many people see their best intentions lose out to other daily demands. We encourage you to make realistic small lifestyle changes that fit into your busy lifestyle.
New Year’s Resolutions Can Work
Each January, we turn our thoughts to self-improvement and the annual ritual of making resolutions in an attempt to start afresh and turn over a new leaf. After a season of way too many cookies, candies and holiday parties, it’s only natural that a vow to lose weight and get fit would follow. The problem is most people start out with good intentions by joining a fitness center or trying the latest fad diet, only to fail and give up by February 1st! According to Proactive Change, less than 50% of us keep our resolutions past the first month.
A study at the University of Hertfordshire showed that the people most successful at keeping their New Year’s Resolutions did at least three of the following things:
* Broke their goal into smaller steps
* Rewarded themselves when they achieved one of these
* Told their friends about their goals
* Focused on the benefits of success
* Kept a diary of their progress.
