Healthy New Year's Resolutions That Are Easy To Keep

Healthy New Year's Resolutions That Are Easy To Keep

In a huge upset, 16% of you made "being a better person" your New Year's resolution, knocking weight loss from the top spot for the first time since 2014. A realistic goal might be to limit eating at a restaurant to once per week.

We went downtown Colorado Springs on a mission to find out what locals are saying they have planned for New Year's resolutions.

"Resolutions need to be easier", she states.

NFL Week 17: Texans-Titans - Four Things To Watch For
The Titans added to this lead in the second quarter with a Rishard Matthews TD catch from Matt Cassel . Cassel came off the bench last week and threw for 124 yards and a touchdown. "We're playing to win".

Make the goal specific, but realistic (avoid those extreme goals such as losing 30# in 30 days) and write it down somewhere so you will see it regularly and remind you day in and day out of what you are striving for.

From one point of view, this "Internet never forgets" can be a good thing when it comes to stuff like New Year Resolutions and pledges to change behaviour. Start by setting a goal to lose 5-10%. This can make a huge difference in how you feel in general if you can get enough sleep most of the time. Just increase activity daily doing something that you like, instead of struggling through a workout that you hate (you won't stick with it.) Take a 15 minute walk in the fresh air. It is much easier to start going to the gym and working out if you have a workout partner, friend, family member and/or a personal trainer to work with you. You will not always eat, sleep and exercise properly. One day off is not a failure - it is just life.

What about you? What are your resolutions for 2017? For the other 10 percent, let yourself have small indulgences that help you keep yourself a little happier and more human.
