Renew Your Resolutions
Article date: August 25, 2010
Come Labor Day, your New Year’s resolutions to eat right and exercise are probably as distant a memory as January’s freezing temperatures. However, committing to living a healthier lifestyle can make a difference any month of the year.
Why not renew your resolutions now, as the kids pack up to go to school? You’ll feel better and get a fresh start at improved health.
One key to making your healthy lifestyle resolutions stick is to set smart goals. If you aim to lose 20 pounds in a month, you’ll likely end up disappointed and give up.
Start by committing to achievable changes, such as eating a few more servings of fruit and veggies each day or taking a walk at lunch or before dinner. As you gain confidence tackling these smaller goals, you’ll be ready to conquer bigger and bigger challenges.
Remember, a healthy lifestyle does more than just make you look good: eating right and exercising are two critical factors that can help reduce your risk of cancer. Set some realistic goals and stick to them, and next January you’ll already be enjoying the benefits of better health.
