Resolutions That Stick

The time of year (the beginning) is upon us once again when we resolve to do better in the year to come. The New Year can be a motivating time to make healthy lifestyle changes. And yet, New Year’s resolutions are plagued by a stigma of short-term success that often wanes before winter ends. When it comes to resolutions, why are we so shortsighted?

It seems that the social pressure for setting goals, rather than the more intrinsic origin, results in a whole lot of halfhearted and incomplete resolutions. Whether you’re simply resolving “to be more physically active,” for instance, or setting a concrete goal “to lose 30lbs,” it’s not enough to simply state it to yourself and your friends at a holiday dinner or New Year’s Eve party! Instead, take one step further to make your resolutions stick! Continue reading “Resolutions That Stick”

New Year’s Resolution: Weight Loss

Weight loss has to be at the top of the list for about 90% of those who make resolutions. After overindulging in the never-ending holiday cycle, most of us could stand to lose a couple of pounds. According to National Institutes of Health (NIH), the average American only gains about a pound during the holidays. That may not seem like a lot, but the problem is that we don’t lose that pound and it accumulates. In 10 years, you may have gained 10 lbs that can be attributed to holiday eating and may be a major contributor to obesity later in life.

If you are one the many people starting a new exercise program or weight loss program, read this and this for tips to keep your resolution. If you are having trouble with the weight loss, I always recommend starting with a gentle cleanse like Pathway Ultra Cleansing System or Renew Life First Cleanse. Cleanses, when done, properly, help detoxify the body and make weight loss easier. Both cleanses are gentle and safe, but if you have never done a cleanse, contact us to help you select the right one for you.

I personally hate the word “diet” and believe that you should eat in moderation and eat whole, organic foods, limiting processed and packaged foods as much as possible. Continue reading “New Year’s Resolution: Weight Loss”

Keeping your New Year’s Resolutions: Gender-Based Strategies

What? Men and women think differently! No way. Well, apparently it also holds true for keeping your goals. According to Professor Wiseman, a psychologist at the University of Hertfordshire in the U.K., successful strategies for keeping resolutions are often gender dependent. He found that by using gender-specific methods, an extra 22% of men kept their goals, while an additional 10% of women stuck with theirs.
