Keep Your 2014 New Year's Resolutions

Keeping New Year’s resolutions is always a challenge, but it can be different this year. The downfall for most people is thinking too big. A recent study indicates that the best way to stick to one’s New Year resolutions is just the opposite … to think small.  It seems to be much more effective to make one simple lifestyle change when it comes to overcoming a large objective like weight loss, eating healthier, exercising more, etc.  Making just one little change is easier to stick to and can have a higher rate of return over the long haul of the entire year.  So, instead of saying “I’m going to  lose 25 pounds this year,” tell yourself you are going to pay closer attention to the snacks you indulge in and try to make healthier choices.  Then add a bit of additional exercise to your routine, maybe a few extra minutes of cardio than usual, and by the end of  the year, you may very well have dropped the extra weight. Big goals can be overwhelming when they make too big of a change in our lifestyle all at once. Think “small changes” and you could end up seeing “big rewards!”
