5 Tips To Achieve Your New Year's Resolution

1. Set realistic goals. The easiest way to fail is by setting unattainable goals. For example, don’t set yourself to lose 30 pounds in 30 days. Set a realistic goal like 30 pounds in 6 months.

2. Start slow and small. Think of your resolution as a long-term commitment, a change in your lifestyle. You may see people who exercise six days a week, starting with three days a week is enough.

3. Select activities that you enjoy. Walk, run, swim or do any other physical activity that you enjoy. Your resolution to exercise must not feel as a punishment.

4. Change One behavior at a time. If you’re not an early riser, don’t force yourself to exercise early in the morning. Start exercising at a comfortable time. Once you have incorporated exercise into your daily routine, then you can change your schedule.

5. Forgive yourself. Don’t get frustrated with small missteps. It’s impossible to be perfect. Small missteps are completely acceptable. If you break the diet one day or stop exercising a week because you’re too busy, forget it and move one.
