What Healthy Resolutions Will You Keep This Year?

Happy New Year! If you are making a resolution to be healthier this year, here are some tips that can help you keep your resolutions and achieve better health in 2016.

It’s hard to believe it, but here we are – about to start a new year already! For those interested in being healthier, the New Year is a time when we often make “resolutions” to live a healthier lifestyle this year. Unfortunately, far too many of these resolutions fail to be realized, and often fall by the wayside within a few short weeks.

Whether your resolution is to lose weight, get more exercise, eat better, or simply make healthier choices in general, it’s important to be specific about what your goal is, and to make it an achievable one.

I’ll share my own resolutions for 2016 in a future post soon, but you can check out last year’s resolutions via the link below. In the meantime, here are a few tips to help you make – and keep – your healthy resolutions this year!

First off,…the number one reason why most people don’t achieve their goals or keep their resolutions is that they are not specific enough. However, along those lines is also the fact that they don’t have a process in place to achieve them.

It’s great to set a goal or make a resolution to lose weight and get in shape this year. Obviously that’s Step 1. But how are you going to achieve this goal? If you don’t set down a plan of how you will do this, it likely will never happen.

For example, if your goal is to get in great shape this year, you have to do 3 things:

1. Eat cleaner, healthier foods on a daily basis.
2. Eat fewer calories than you burn. (If you want to lose fat.)
3. Exercise consistently – and do exercise of the right type to help you burn fat, build muscle, and boost your metabolism. (See our Exercise page for some of our recommended ways to do this.)

We are here to help you with these 3 things, so please explore our website and subscribe to our newsletter for more information! We regularly post articles exposing the Truth about healthy eating habits and truly good food.

Rather than just saying you resolve to get in shape this year, take a good look at your lifestyle and see how you can incorporate these 3 elements into a process that will help you actually achieve your goal. That way, when next year rolls around, you can set a new resolution, instead of the same old one that you didn’t achieve last year!
