Alpena- The early parts of February is usually right around that time when folks begin to give up on their New Years Resolution or health goals that they’ve set for the new year.
According to U.S. News, 80% of resolutions begin to fail by the second week in February. Local Dietitian Melissa Tolan-Halleck walked WBKB through some helpful tips to staying on the right path in achieving your goals.
One tip, keep your goals realistic and attainable. If it’s something you don’t feel 100% on being able to achieve, make the goal reasonable. Another tip is to make your goals weekly and specific. If you hone in on a certain goal, have confidence, and make it short term, you should be able to attain your goals and be able to make them tougher, week after week.
- Make your goal realistic and attainable
- Make it specific and have confidence
- Increase the difficulty of the goal each week
