New Year's Resolutions
New Year's resolutions are everywhere this time of the year. Many set goals to improve their health, whether it be through exercise, healthy eating, better quality of sleep, or commitment to meditation and yoga, but keeping a New Year's resolution can be tough, especially if the goal is to form or break a habit. Many lose sight of their resolutions early in the new year.

Changing habits and maintaining good health can be hard; however, the way you set your health goals can increase your chance of success. Set SMART goals to increase your chance of success. Being specific helps you think of any barriers that may be in the way. Measuring goals helps you see your progress. Setting a goal that feels out of your comfort zone but not overwhelming will help motivate you. Making your goal meaningful & important will help you stick with it. Also, find a way to hold yourself accountable. Share your goal with family and friends. Ask for support!
