I Never Keep My New Year’s Resolutions!

You know Chiropractic is awesome. You see the results of it daily. You don’t even stop for a second when someone says “I don’t believe in Chiropractic.” It works regardless of if you “believe” or not – it just does. However, I know that if you want to be healthier, you’ll need more than what an adjustment can offer. You’ll need to take a look at your daily habits and your current condition to decide if it can be better. If you want an upgrade in your life, it’s going to take some effort on your part.  Here are some things to consider when trying to improve your overall health!

Add Exercise To Your Routine

Doing consistent exercise should be high on your list of priorities. Many people only exercise as a way of managing weight. Not really thinking about any other possible reason to stay on track with regular exercise. Therefore, you tend to stop exercising when your weight is manageable.

But Why Make A Resolution Anyway?

Why bother? As corny as it sounds, you are worth it! You can take action to improve your life a few small steps at a time. Over the years, we’ve all made goals and resolutions. Some you’ve kept and some you never got close.  The important thing is to continue to try as one day, just one day, you will get it right!

Make Your Resolution Worth It

If you’re not excited about the goal, you won’t keep it. Make it something that you’ll actually be excited about when you complete it. “Clean out the hall closet” may be a necessary goal, but that one wouldn’t excite me.

Make It Measurable

“Drink more water” or “lose some weight” may be good ideas, but how do you know if you hit it? Drinking one glass of water may constitute “more” but does it make you feel like you’ve hit a goal?

Make It Attainable

Your goals may, but don’t need to include, “climb Mt. Everest.” You should make some smaller goals so that you can knock them off your list and get some momentum going. “Lose 50 pounds” may be what you really want – but your brain may say, “No way, that’s too much work.” Could you lose 5 pounds and keep it off for awhile?

 

Remember These Are Your Goals, Your Life

No one should tell you what goals you should be working on. This is a very personal thing. Only you know what you need to work on. Only you know what will make you excited to get up in the morning. Don’t give up trying. Better health is very achievable, and it’s not just you that will benefit.

Everyone that you come into contact with will benefit from your good health. Your friends, your family, your co-workers, your customers… everyone. You at 70% isn’t you at 100% — we’ve all had to go to work with a cold and it wasn’t pretty.
