It’s New Year’s resolutions time. Most of us will make a list of ways we promise to change in the new year. “Eat healthy” and “exercise more” will be on a lot of New Year’s resolutions lists. But will you manage to do that all year long?
Don’t worry about losing a specific amount of weight or bench-pressing a certain number of pounds. Make a declaration instead: a declaration that you’ll make better health a priority, not an occasional passing thought.
This year, try something that might work better: Think about what it means to be healthy and make little plans. Think in terms of more organization and small changes. These healthy plans can be easier to maintain. And success can lead to a healthier, happier you over time.
Here are six small changes and healthy living tips that can lead to better health overall, which is a good goal for all of us.
