Tips to help stick to health related New Year Resolutions
45 percent of people will make a resolution at the start of 2013, yet less than half of those promises will still be in effect six months later.
Monday is like the January of the week: the day that people can reset their intentions after the weekend and try again. By recommitting to their resolutions every Monday, they get 52 opportunities to stick with it and incorporate healthier habits into their lives.
Plus, having a Monday resolution means people don’t have to do it alone.
The tips to help stick to their new year resolutions are:
On Monday, people should eat a more diverse, nutrient-dense diet by swapping meat one day a week for fruits, vegetables, beans and whole grains.
People can take 8-11 quit attempts to kick smoking for good, so they should gain an advantage by recommitting to their quit every Monday.
They should add more fitness into their daily life by starting the week with physical activity.
They should maintain sexual health, their weekly reminder to call the clinic, set up a preventative health appointment, or restock on condoms and other essential supplies.
People should set aside some time each Monday to plan their needs for the week and ensure that they stay healthy.
