Healthy Living

Losing weight, kicking a bad habit, exercising more; this is what always comes up when someone mentions making a New Year’s resolution. We get motivated, feel like we are on top of the world for a couple of weeks, then slump back into our old routine until another new year comes along. As we get ready for our goal(s), let’s take a new route for creating and sticking to your New Year’s resolution.

Getting a healthy start is an important key to keeping your commitment. Schedule an appointment with your primary care provider for a wellness exam and physical to see if there is anything concerning that you may need help with. Your doctor is not only going to help you with any questions you have but can help determine what exercise and diet will work best for you.

Working on your physical health not top priority? Make a visit with a therapist or find ways to work on your mental health. Even though you may think you’re only working on yourself mentally, your brain is part of your body, and it will thank you for the positive healing.

Baby Steps

Have you ever set a ridiculously big goal and even you know it’ll never happen? Keep them small. Setting a goal that is out of reach will only cause frustration and possible failure. You’re going to have potential setbacks, and that’s ok! Go for a walk, get some extra sleep, laugh a little more! Small goals will lead you to the big ones.

Finally, reward yourself. Conquer what you can and celebrate your win. Layout some milestones to celebrate when reached. Take pride in your accomplishments. Even the small steps should be a victory. Now that doesn’t mean shove the whole cake in your mouth but take that piece and savor every little morsal. You deserve it.
