A New Year and A New You

It’s here again: a brand new year.  It’s a great time to re-evaluate your health habits and set some new goals to better yourself.  This year, follow your dreams, but be realistic.  Here are a few tips to help you select some great goals:

  • Try something new.  If you have been doing the same thing expecting different results, it’s time to mix it up. 
  • Be honest with yourself. You are better off setting smaller, attainable goals.  If you make your goal to difficult you are setting yourself up for disappointment. 
  • Write it down. Then put it somewhere where you will see it often, and keep track of the steps you are taking to meet your goal.
  • Share it.  Tell a friend and ask them to hold you accountable. 
  • Reward yourself.  Give yourself a pat on the back (or a little something more) for meeting your short-term goals.  Just make sure your reward isn’t unhealthy food!
