Nutrition: How To Keep Your Resolutions

New years resolutions are hard to keep, and we often make the same resolutions year after year, never sticking to any of them.

This year, instead of trying to stick to your usual list of resolutions, try working with one resolution at a time. Once that resolution becomes a habit, move on to the next one.

Start with the resolution that will be easiest to tackle. You will feel a sense of accomplishment going into the next resolution on the list.

Break down sweeping resolutions into do-able action steps. Instead of a resolution to lose 15 pounds, make a resolution to avoid after dinner snacking at night. Once you make that a habit, move on to a resolution to cut sugar out of your diet 6 days a week. Once you make that a habit, move on to a resolution to reduce alcoholic beverages to 1 day a week.

You get the idea.

If you have resolutions on your list that appear year after year, write down the resolution and then list all of the reasons you haven't stuck to it. Be honest. Then note what you've gotten out of failing to keep it. Then ask yourself why that's more important to you than keeping the resolution.

Hopefully those insights will help you stick to new healthy habits this year!
