Lose weight, eat less junk food - they top many lists of New Year's resolutions. But sticking with those good intentions is just not easy.
The problem is that most people have unrealistic expectations. They decide this is the year they're going to completely change everything about their diet, that's just too hard to do. Willpower isn't the issue, willpower is about depriving yourself and nobody gets excited about that. Besides, depriving yourself is depressing and leads to bingeing. Focus on the positives - you feel better, have more energy, when you eat healthy. When making dietary changes, start small. Set a few realistic goals. In the long run, you'll have better self-esteem and more self-confidence because you'll actually stick with them.
Give up alcohol
Giving up alcohol as a New Year's resolution is a popular health goal. However, there are healthy changes you can make while still being able to partake in adult beverages. For example, try a spiked seltzer rather than drink heavy beer containing many calories and gluten. Also, instead of having that martini, drink a glass of red wine. Replacing something a little better for you rather than completely giving up is the way to go.
Getting to the gym and exercising more in the New Year always seems like a reasonable resolution. But again, people promise themselves that they'll exercise everyday and that never really works. Set a reasonable goal like working out for 20-30 minutes 3 times a week to start. If you stick to a more reasonable health goal, it will become a habit and then you can ramp it up.
Visit a chiropractor
