Health Note tips on how to successfully keep your New Year’s resolutions

Mayo Clinic Health System Health Note:

Having trouble sticking with your New Year’s resolution, which happens to be the same one you made last year, and the year before that? This year, try tackling your resolutions with a different strategy. Write down your New Year's resolution and come up with a very specific, realistic plan that will set you up for success. Set small goals that will help you achieve your overall mission. As you meet those goals you will see that your motivation doesn't run out as quickly. Find ways to make the new behavior feel more like fun, not just another chore. Finally, focus on making changes that seem possible for the long haul. The quickest way to fail is to attempt something that you know you cannot sustain.
