New Year's Resolutions You Can Keep
January: It's the day you say, "More salads, less ice cream" from now on.
The day you vow to work out more and work out religiously.
The day you promise to stop smoking (for good this time) and learn how to mediate, cook, floss properly, and eat more vegetables.
And you mean it you really do.
But somewhere between New Year's Day and spring, those vows get broken.
Family and work obligations take over, and it's "Goodbye, resolutions" till next year.
This year, try a trick that may seem counterintuitive: Downsize your expectations. That's right.
Go for less and get more. You can't rebuild your body or redesign your health in a single leap, but if you take enough baby steps, you can make big strides towards a healthier, happier new you.
Here is a little trick for you, while you brush your teeth, lift one leg. Count to 60. Repeat with the other leg. This little exercise not only improves your balance, essential for preventing falls as you age, but ensures you brush for the two minutes your dentist recommends.
