You’re probably making a New Year Health Resolution even as we speak. It’s normal to want the new year to bring a sense of renewal. Getting rid of bad habits and adopting good ones will no doubt be at the top of the list. While some cynics may say that resolutions were made to be broken, we want you to know that if pursued sensibly and realistically, you can meet your health goals and keep your health resolutions successfully in the coming year.

 

If your New Year’s resolution is to lose weight, then commit to a long-term plan. Avoid quickie cures which will frustrate you with their lack of sustained results. Don’t expect overnight success, but patiently pursue your diet plans, and you will see results eventually. Begin by cutting down sweets and other high-calorie foods. Don’t cut everything out at once, but reduce your intake gradually. Start walking every day before you commit to a rigorous gym routine which can quickly exhaust you.

 

Do you feel like your overly busy schedule has kept you away from friends and family? If your resolution is to get your social bonds back on track, set some realistic goals. To begin with, wean yourself away from following your friends on social media, and actually, make time during the week or on weekends to spend time with them physically rather than virtually. It’s good to remember that research has proven that a lack of social bonds can damage your health as much as alcohol abuse and smoking, and even more than obesity and lack of exercise. 

 

If you are trying to quit smoking, get medical help if you need to. Keep reminding yourself of the deleterious effects that cigarettes have on your health, including putting you at risk of Cancer and Cardiovascular Disease. Also, remind yourself of the money you will save if you quit the habit. Like all bad habits, it’s tough to stop, but take it one step at a time. Set realistic goals and you will be better able to succeed.

 

Is your New Year Resolution to cut down on Stress? Remember that chronic stress leads to insomnia, depression, obesity and heart disease, apart from other illnesses. Maintain healthy work hours, get adequate hours of restful sleep, exercise regularly and eat healthily, and you will reduce the stress in your life. In addition, spending time with family and friends can elevate your mood and help you meet your goals to reduce stress.

 

Keep a diary of your Resolutions and keep updating it every day. Begin with baby steps and you will soon be taking big strides. You can do it if you keep persevering.
