Although health should be a year-round priority, most Americans have a reality check in the new year and start making health conscience goals. A study from Forbes estimates that about 40% of Americans make new year’s resolutions, but only about 8% actually stick to these resolutions. After the holidays, many Americans notice either a change in weight or a lack of motivation to get out and exercise. Between the treats, holiday events and cold weather, eating healthy and going for a run seems like the last thing anyone wants to do. But when the new year starts it is common to find many gyms full and neighborhoods bustling with runners.

In order to make New Year’s resolutions that you can achieve, make your goals tangible, simple and convenient. Those who have success with their resolutions often only make one or two. Having a long list of resolutions is not only overwhelming to look at but can also be difficult to achieve, making it more likely to quit. Minor changes in your current lifestyle can not only make an impact but are also be easy to do. Finally, if your resolution is one that involves impossible tasks for you and your family, getting started on your goal will be a difficult task.

If you are trying to find ways to make fun and manageable resolutions, think about formulating unique ways to accomplish them. Try making resolutions with a family member or friend so that you can each hold each other accountable. Another way to accomplish your resolution is to try something new, maybe instead of forcing yourself to run every day, try a pilates class or yoga a few times every month. Trying new activities can spark new interests and keep you from getting bored of your same routine.

Sophomore Emilia Chrostowski says “Ever since I started Orangetheory, my favorite workout class, I have found working out fun and have been able to work to achieve my goals.” Stepping outside of your comfort zone has numerous benefits and can help jump-start your new year. For the start of 2019, make resolutions that will last a lifetime.
