Be Realistic About Resolutions

Every new year is a new chance to jump back into setting goals to be the healthy and happy person you want to be. While many people make a big deal out of New Year’s resolutions and how most get broken, there are many people who make their resolutions work. When one resolves to be active and healthy, the results make the journey worth it.

You don’t have to run a marathon by Valentine’s Day or lose 100 pounds by spring. The idea of an extreme change, or setting goals that are just too high to be reached are the main reasons typical resolutions don’t work. But, if you make reasonable resolutions, you can do it and amaze yourself in the process.

The professionals at Campanella Chiropractic and Wellness want to see you succeed and be the healthiest you can be. Some simple ideas that can help include getting a good pair of walking shoes and getting out there, or investing in a treadmill or gym. Walking correctly can help get you in better shape, improve your heart health, improve your posture, and improve any back pain issues. If you decide to take up free weights or to jump into using a weight machine, you can get great results. But, make sure you use the equipment properly to avoid any back injuries.

Another resolution that you can try and keep is to eat better. The most important thing you can do when trying a New Year’s resolution idea for a more healthy and active you is to mix it up. People get bored with the same routine or food. Find a variety of ways to keep active and switch it up to keep it fresh. Think about any activities that excite you, things you have never tried before. Trying out a group exercise or activity can increase your chances of keeping the resolution and becoming healthier. Before you know it, you will be active and healthy and feeling like it doesn’t take much effort at all. What is the one thing you plan to do to be more active and healthy this year?
