Learn how to keep your New Years resolutions

Another Year

Ever wonder why the the promises that are made on New Years Day are never kept? Often the goals that are set amid fireworks and champagne fall by the wayside as the year progresses. It is important to make resolutions that are attainable. Achieving small milestones on the journey toward a larger goal fuels the mind with confidence and motivation that goes a long way when it comes to endurance. Why do promises to stay fit often fail?

As a working society, many times eating right and staying fit can take a back seat to a busy work week. Jobs that require sitting at a desk all day can lead to poor circulation, obesity, stiff neck, back pain and other health problems.

While there are a number of short stretch routines that can be done at the office and only take minutes a day, using the stairs at work instead of the elevator can increase circulation, heart rate and burn calories. Eating smaller portions of favorite foods versus cutting them completely out of meals in an effort to lose weight creates less of a craving.

Whether personal goals for 2014 are to get in shape, maintain a better diet, continue education, attain financial freedom or find romance with a little effort and a lot of faith the promises that are made for the New Year can become a reality.
