New Year’s Resolutions
As we look forward to a new year, many of us resolve to make positive changes in
our lives. In fact, the practice of New Year’s Resolutions had been around since
at least the time of the early Romans.
According to USA.gov, some popular resolutions include:
Get More Exercise
New Year’s resolutions require behavior change, which is not always easy. To
improve your chances of success, rather than making a general resolution like
“lose weight,” it is helpful to create a smart goal. SMART goals are Specific,
Measurable, Attainable, Realistic/Relevant, and Time Bound.
For example, in order to lose weight, you need to assess what behaviors are
contributing to weight gain. If pizza is your passion, and you regularly
overindulge, you might set a goal such as:
When eating pizza I will eat no more than 2 slices from a 12 inch pizza. I
can have unlimited salad along with the pizza. I will do this for one month
and reassess my progress.

goal setting for 2019.
