Ring in the New Year with Swanson Health Products and a New You
December 31, 2007, Fargo, ND— New Year's resolutions date back to the early Roman Empire and centuries later in 2008, half of Americans will make one or more resolution this January. According to Wikipedia, New Year's resolutions are a commitment that an individual makes to a project or a habit, often a lifestyle change that is generally interpreted as advantageous. The most popular New Year's resolution is weight loss and a healthy lifestyle. Unfortunately, by June 46 percent of those that resolve to change will break their goals.
The reality is that those who set a New Year's resolution are 10 times more likely to reach their goal than those who don't. Swanson Health Products would like to offer 10 tips that can help along the way.
- Choose only one goal.
What is the one thing in your life that needs to change the most? Success is the key of New Year's resolutions; pick just one thing and focus your energy on that.
- Make it specific.
Keeping a resolution vague only leads to failure. Writing down steps to obtain your goals will help you achieve it in the long run.
- Choose a goal that is measurable and realistic.
If losing weight is a top priority for 2008, don't just set an ultimate goal. If you know you have to lose 90 pounds to be at your ideal weight, start by setting a goal of 20 pounds. Once you reach your goal a new one can be set.
- Don't set a goal that will take all year.
Many people fail to achieve their New Year's resolutions because it takes too long; setting smaller goals that only take a couple of months are more likely to be achieved.
- Allow for slip-ups.
No one is perfect. Plan to slip up every once in a while, but make sure to start back on track again after the splurge.
- Write your goal down.
You need to be reminded of your goal every day, so keep it in a place that you will see it.
- Tell others.
Make sure the people you tell will be supportive of the change. Telling people helps you keep your focus when you feel like giving up.
- Build a support group.
Similar to the last tip, a support group will keep you going when you feel like giving up. Going to the gym alone is HARD, so bring a friend with you.
- Keep a daily log of your progress.
When trying to lose weight, keeping track of food and exercise helps to show you what works and what doesn't.
- Plan now how you will celebrate your success.
Achieving the goal is rewarding by itself, but having an extra celebration will give you more of an incentive. If you have always wanted to go to a beach, but never wanted to wear that swimsuit in public, make a promise that when you reach your goal weight you will make that trip.
