New Year, New Solutions

Many of us find ourselves in the same boat this time of year, with a New Year’s resolution and not a clue how to make it happen. How is this year going to be the any different than the last? The best place to start is to focus on the word “new”.

To create a change, you must introduce a different stimulus. That could be trying a new exercise class, or working with a new a nutrition plan. It could be as simple as changing the time of day you go to the gym. Try new things; try a lot of them. If you feel like they work for you, that’s great, stick with it. If you find that you end up back at square one, then regroup and try something else. There is not one guaranteed be-all end-all trick for getting healthy. What works for you may not work for your friend, co-worker, spouse, and vice versa. The only thing that is for sure is that doing the same thing over and over again will produce the same results.

Don’t be afraid to ask for help (and I don’t mean from Instagram; “detox” teas and anything else you see influencers selling online that sound too good to be true, usually are). New ideas are the foundation of change. And once you find that idea to help you break through and reach your goals, the rest is up to you.
