It’s that time of year again! As we review the past 365 days, we contemplate how we can turn a new page and start fresh. Such reflection often results in ambitious, and unsustainable goal setting, which can set you up to fail. Common new year’s resolutions are aggressive dieting programs, weight loss goals, or going from zero to one hundred with an exercise routine.
Already, I cannot count the number of times I’ve heard the phrase “I’m just going to start over in January”, or “I’m going to focus on this more in the new year”. Usually this “starting over” or “focusing more” involves food or habit a person feels they need to eliminate. Instead of concentrating on what we want to take away, let’s focus on what we can add to your routine for better health.
