It’s fair to say that most of us start the New Year with good intentions. As the clock strikes midnight we vow to exercise more, eat healthy meals, cut down on alcohol and spend more time with family friends.
The sad fact though is that studies show that we have usually broken most of our New Year’s resolutions by the first week in February, so what can we do to stick to our goals?
Perhaps it’s time to be more realistic and choose a resolutions that you can actually keep! Up your exercise level to a reasonable level rather than vowing to hit the gym 7 days a week and you may well stick to the plan.

Top Tips To Help You Keep Your Resolution
Do not despair…According to the American Psychological Association, you can stick to your New Year’s resolution by following these steps:
Start Small – Make resolutions that you think you can keep. If you would like to eat healthier, try replacing dessert with something else you enjoy, like fruit or yogurt, instead of seeing your diet as a form of punishment.
Change One Behaviour At A Time – Work toward changing one thing at a time.
Share Your Experiences – Join a support group, talk to friends and family about your goals. Having someone to share your struggles and successes with makes your journey easier and less intimidating.
Don’t Beat Yourself Up – Don’t give up completely because you broke your diet, or skipped the gym for a week. Everyone has ups and downs. Resolve to recover from your mistakes and get back on track.
