What to do When Life Interrupts Your Resolutions

By Donna Stark

Your daily schedule is packed so you hit your family's favorite takeout restaurant for dinner. The weather has been a little extra frightful the past few days so you have been skipping those early morning walks. And with all the interesting shows to watch on TV, your bedtime has been pushed back further and further and further, hasn't it? It's hard to maintain good health as it is, but it's even harder when the changes you want to make bump into your daily reality! Fortunately, your local chiropractors have some advice to share!

Finding Success With New Year's Resolutions

Your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic recognize that big life changes aren't the easiest to implement so they have come up with a few tips on how you can find success with your New Year's resolutions.

  • Baby steps - Don't be afraid to start with small baby steps. After all, baby steps can eventually lead you to big gains in your overall health and wellness. So, if you want to change your diet, start by changing only one meal per day. If you want to exercise more, think of creative ways to continue if the weather is bad. And if you need to prioritize your sleep, set a limit on how much screen time you get each day and stick to it. Before you  know it, these habits will become more natural to you as the days pass.
  • One habit - Setting goals can become quite addicting but if you set too many, you may find yourself in a pickle. Instead of trying to establish several new habits at once, why don't you focus on successfully achieving one at a time? This is a great way to keep yourself from feeling frustrated and overwhelmed.
  • Accountability partner - If you have trouble maintaining the right amount of motivation, you may want to consider finding yourself an accountability partner. This person should be someone who will support and encourage you. It should also be someone who won't accept your excuses to get out of your new habit (unless, of course, they are really good ones) and who will listen to you vent when times get tough. Basically, you want to trust this person to keep you on track!

A Healthy New Year Ahead

No matter what your resolutions are or how difficult they are to implement in your life, the suggestions above will certainly help you accomplish them easily and quickly. So, give them a chance and find the success you are aiming for!
