How to Make Your New Year’s Resolutions Stick
Shoot for the moon. If you miss, you’ll still reach the stars.
Dream it, and you can be it.
Obstacles are only visible when you lose sight of your goal.
Sayings like these make goal achievement sound like a cinch. The truth is that setting and accomplishing goals isn’t as simple as it sounds. Because resolutions are often health-related, Drs. Barb and Alex have some tips to help patients follow through with them.
- Select and frame goals with care
- Begin with baby steps
- Write down the game plan
- Keep up momentum
- Predict a sunny forecast
- Find a coach
- Keep quiet around naysayers
- Help kids set goals too
Let us help. Our chiropractic office strives to teach patients how to prevent the chemical, physical and emotional causes of vertebral subluxations. Failure to achieve goals is an emotional stressor that may erode health. Don’t be afraid to talk to the doctor about ways to reach your goals, especially if they’re health or fitness oriented. We’re your partner in establishing a balanced, healthy lifestyle. Working toward goals is challenging and takes daily effort, but the payoff is rewarding and certainly worth the effort.
