Health Tip: Stick With Your Healthy New Year's Resolutions

Don't let them slide

(HealthDay News) -- People who make New Year's resolutions often have the best of intentions, though these goals frequently slide.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics suggests how to stick with your goals for the new year:

  • Make your goals specific. For example, instead of proclaiming that you want to exercise, commit to 30 minutes of activity per day.
  • Choose one realistic goal, rather than several goals that are likely to be unachieved.
  • Create a reminder list.
  • Take immediate action, whether it's by changing your diet beginning with the next meal, or by joining a gym.
