How to Make a Resolution That Sticks

Studies have confirmed that the lion’s share of people who make New Year’s resolutions come up far short. In fact, approximately 80% of people drop their New Year’s goals by the second week of February.

Despite our best intentions, there are many reasons why we struggle to stick with our resolutions. We lack support and accountability… We don’t make time… Our goals are not specific enough…

…And most of all, New Year’s resolutions are typically downright overwhelming and flat-out unrealistic.

3 Realistic Health Resolutions for 2020

This year is going to be different, my friend, and you’re going to be one of the 8-percenters who actually achieves your goals. And to help ensure your success, here are 3 realistic, yet powerful health resolutions for 2020…

First, move for 30 minutes every day. While regular exercise has all kinds of great benefits, most of us need daily movement to combat the negative effects of our sedentary lifestyles.

Second, make gratitude a daily discipline. Thank someone or something every day. As Oprah Winfrey so powerfully said, “If you look at what you have in life, you will always have more. If you look at what you don’t have in life, you will never have enough.”

Third, schedule your bedtime. You can’t get 7 – 9 hours of sleep if you’re only in the sack for 6. The first step to getting adequate restorative sleep is making sure you’re in bed enough time.

Lastly, a bonus resolution for you: Replace one “bad” food, drink or meal each week with a healthier one. And to get you started with a perfect record, today I’ve got an absolutely divine recipe for a chocolate collagen martini that I know you’re going to love!
