How many of you set new year's resolutions in January that you fail to keep? Like everyone else, I used to start January with some big promises of exercising daily, getting more than 8 hours of sleep a night, eating 5 a day and committing to 'Dry January'. I then get to the 31st of January feeling deflated that, yet again, I haven't hit these health goals.
This year I'm doing things differently. I didn't set 'impossible to reach' new year's resolutions and I'm not thinking about my health only in January. Now the onslaught of January healthy marketing messages has subsided, there is no better time to think about the small, realistic readjustments you can make for better health. It is the small, consistent changes we make that can have a long lasting impact on our health.
