How To Accomplish Your New Year’s Health Resolutions

How-To-Accomplish-Your-New-Years-Health-Resolutions

With 2015 beginning, you may have started your resolution for the year. Many individuals choose to focus on their health as part of their resolution. From weight loss to nutrition improvement, you may be one of those people focusing on their health. If you’re committed to accomplishing and maintaining your goal by the end of the year, use these tips to ensure that it actually happens.

Make Sure Your Goal is SMART

Have you heard of a SMART goal? The acronym, SMART, stands for:

  • Specific
  • Measurable
  • Attainable
  • Results-Focused
  • Timely

Instead of vowing to lose 200 pounds in a month (which is unhealthy and virtually unattainable without significant medical assistance), choose to lose 1-5 pounds a week depending on your situation. It is a specific goal that is measurable, certainly attainable, focused, and can be completed in a timely manner.

Hold Yourself Accountable

Do you have a friend or family member that can help you accomplish your goal? If so, make sure they hold you accountable to your goal. Whether it means joining you at the gym, or also cutting back on sugar and fats, your family and friends will be more than happy to help you achieve your health resolution for 2015!

Consult a Medical Professional

When you need specific advice on how to reach your health goal, a medical professional will certainly be able to answer any questions you may have. Remember to seek out the help of a professional in the specific area of health you are looking to improve. For instance, if you’re focusing on changing your diet in 2015, consult a professional nutritionist. These experts will provide you with the advice and direction you need to not only accomplish, but also potentially exceed, your ultimate health goal.
