Starting a new year usually comes with resolutions for healthy living. Unfortunately, many of us fail to meet our goals throughout the year for a variety of reasons. In today’s world, though, there are many plans and tips available to help make healthy living a reality. Here are 5 tips to make 2013 the year for real, life-changing differences.

  1. Have a plan. Outline the changes that you’d like to make and make a schedule that fits these changes in. Actually writing your plan will make it easier to see and follow.
  2. Make specific goals. Make SMART goals. Make your goals Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Timely.
  3. Track what you eat. For a great tracking app/support network, try www.loseit.com. They have an app for smart phones that is amazing. You can quickly scan bar codes and retrieve nutritional information as well as hundreds of restaurant menus. For added support, join one of their support groups.
  4. Eat breakfast! Many people avoid breakfast thinking they are smart to eat fewer calories by missing a meal. However, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Make time to make a healthy breakfast a priority. It will give you energy to be able to make it through the day.
  5. Take it slow. A lot of people fail because they try to accomplish too much too quickly and quickly burn out from exhaustion. It’s good to take it slow to develop habits that will stick.
