Four Steps to a Healthier Lifestyle in the New Year

December 31, 2014 12:57 am

Cut the carbs, eat more veggies. Exercise more, stress less. Get organized, stick to a budget. We start every January 1 with good intentions, but often fail to follow through – just 8 percent of those who make health-related New Year’s resolutions manage to keep their pledges.

Stay on track this year with these tips from :DentalPlans.

Get inspired. Many websites offer inspiring stories from people that have met their health and fitness goals. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) page, "Inspiration for a Healthy Year," features pictures and stories to reinforce the idea that you can set and achieve significant goals.

Break goals down. Whether it's your resolutions or daily to-dos, a long list of goals is overwhelming, not inspiring. Make no more than three resolutions and break them down into actionable steps.

Explore your options. If you've delayed getting essential health services due to financial concerns, a little research can reveal ways to make getting the care you need more affordable.

Track and share your goals. It takes about three weeks to establish a new habit. Track your health goals on your 2015 calendar by marking the 22nd as the day you put the past behind you. Consider publicly sharing your goals with family and friends and asking for their support.
