Wellness Family Newsletter: BStrong4Life


It’s that time of year again!  While you are enjoying precious time with family and friends and “winding down another year” many will begin to think about their goals for  2014.  For many, New Year’s Resolutions are a way to get back in touch with themselves and their needs.  The most common resolutions involve health: whether it’s weight loss, eating healthier, consistent exercise, or getting out of pain, there are tricks to help avoid the February drop off and make an actual change to your health and life for the long term.


Goal Setting Tips:

Bio Density

1.Write it down.  Studies have shown that successful people write their goals down and regularly review them.  I recommend reading them daily to get them in the mindset.

2.Make them measurable.  Instead of “I want to lose weight”, try “I want to lose 10 lbs by March 1st”.

3.Make them attainable.  “I want to lose 15 lbs by the end of January” is not realistic-at least not from a healthy, able to be maintained standpoint.

4.Set shorter goals/benchmarks for success.  If you do not currently exercise at all, setting a goal for daily exercise may not be realistic at first, but setting a goal to exercise 3-4 times a week will allow you to make the habit without causing the often vicious cycle of giving up over zealous goals.

5.Get good support and/or a health coach.  If you have tried the goal before and have not been successful, it might be necessary to find a “coach”, doctor, etc that can help you attain the goal.  For other goals, finding a partner to join you or using a reward such as buying a new outfit now, can be good motivation.
