Sticking to Your New Year’s Resolution
How do you break the yearly cycle of yo-yo dieting? How do you make it so that on Dec. 31st 2016 you’re still on track with your new year’s resolution from Jan. 1 2016?
In this week’s edition of Wellness Wednesday we talk about how to successfully stick to your New Year’s Resolution. Here are the keys to success:
- Come up with a series of small wins over time that you know you can achieve to build up a long-term habit.
- Realize that real change doesn’t come in a short period of time. Give yourself 2-3 months to really establish a habit.
- Find someone who can hold you accountable to your own goals whether it’s a friend, family member, or coach.
- The same person who’s holding you accountable also needs to be a source or support and encouragement. They can’t just be a drill sergeant who yells at you and berates you when you don’t stick to the plan.
