MAKE YOUR RESOLUTIONS LAST
The new year is approaching and it seems like it was only yesterday that we were making
our New Year’s resolutions. How many of yours have been kept until now?
Congratulations, if you have managed to keep them alive! Sadly though, most of us tend

the meaning immediate so that we can feel good in the moment. Reward yourself with
something you enjoy when you have achieved your weekly goals, for instance. Luckily,
the rewards can still be healthy ones if you aim to maintain your weight and stay the

Last but not least, don’t get tired of making resolutions because by making them, you are
more likely to commit to the changes. Rest assured, with the right goals and approach,
you will have New Year’s resolutions that last.
