Advice for Sticking to Your New Year’s Resolutions

42512520 SCan you believe that another year is almost over? 2015 has gone by so fast, and with a new year on the horizon, now is the perfect time to set a healthy New Year’s resolution. Whether you are interested in changing your diet, losing weight or finding a solution to pain that has been troubling you for months, Anthony Medical & Chiropractic Center is here to help! Sticking to your New Year’s resolution can be tough, so follow these tricks to reach your goals in 2016.

Take Time to Reflect

Especially if you are planning on making a big lifestyle change in 2016, we recommend taking some time to reflect on your current habits and why you have fallen into them. Discovering the reasons for your negative habits is one of the most important steps to turning them around and a new year is the perfect time to wipe the slate clean and start fresh.

Start Small

Instead of jumping into something new, start small and expand as the year continues. If you are interested in making healthy lifestyle changes in 2016, you don’t have to completely change your diet on day one. Start by heading to the gym a couple days a week and pack a healthy lunch each day instead of purchasing one at work. As the weeks go on, start incorporating more healthy habits into your plan, making your change in habits more natural.

Lean on Friends and Family

Tacking a New Year’s resolution is tough, so remember that you aren’t doing this alone. Make a health conscious resolution with a loved one and work together to reach your goal, and talk to your friends and family about your plan. Even with the best of intentions, it’s normal to slip up on your resolution at one point or another, but don’t get down on yourself. Instead, lean on your support system and keep going.

Celebrate Your Achievements

As we mentioned above, starting small is a great way to get started on your New Year’s resolution, but instead of just rewarding yourself when you reach your final goal, set milestones for yourself along the way and celebrate each achievement. Making a healthy lifestyle change can be tough and congratulating yourself along the way is a great way to keep yourself motivated and excited about your journey!
