You want better health and New Year’s is the perfect time to think about it. Don’t feel bad that you are making a resolution that many Americans make each year. According to Statista, the top three resolutions for 2019 had to deal with health:
- Diet or Eat Healthier (71%)
- Exercise More (65%)
- Lose Weight (54%)
Unfortunately, sources like US News report that 80% of resolutions fail by the middle of February. And Statistic Brain reports that only 9.2% of resolutions are actually successful. So, why are resolutions so likely to fail? And what can you do to succeed?
Succeeding in Your New Year’s Resolution for Better Health
There are three big reasons that so many people struggle to follow through on their New Year’s Resolutions. Knowing these tendencies may help you better combat what usually leads to failure.
Definition is key. Before you know if you have succeeded in a goal, you have to define it clearly. Do you want to lose weight? Great. Exactly how much do you want to lose over what period of time? What exactly will you change in order to attempt weight management and how much would you need to lose each month/week on average to accomplish it? Give yourself very specific definitions and checkpoints to ensure you stay on target. Your goals can change, but you have to know where things are going wrong if you are going to get to a point where you are successful. It’s better to know you are failing and adapt your strategy than not realize you are failing.
Old habits die hard. If you want to be healthier this year, find ways to “make” yourself change. Most people really believe they are going to start going to the gym a few times a week when they have never been consistent with it in the past. Accountability groups, classes and other ways of staying in touch with your goals are important for a change. Know that when you are tired and not feeling motivated, you are going to struggle not to revert back to your old habits.
Knowledge is power. Getting help in your health goals is going to be a huge step in the right direction. Knowing better means doing better. If you want to improve your health, increase your activity level or lose weight, a professional is going to provide you with the strategy you need to succeed.
In order to beat the statistics and change for the better, you need a guide. With a professional nutritionist and chiropractor, you can change all three of these common problems hindering real change. You will have clearly defined goals and methods put in place with a strategy based on professional knowledge and experience. You will have accountability with a professional you see regularly. You will have evaluations to check your progress and recommendations made if certain strategies aren’t as successful as hoped.
