Setting Yourself Up For Success In 2016

What would success in 2016 look like for you? Is this the year you will: eat breakfast every morning, go to the gym at least twice a week, meet up with a friend at least once a month, try out boxing or a new cardio class, keep a gratitude journal, schedule a meeting with a financial planner, read one new book every month, commit to doing at least two minutes of meditation every day, take a course to learn Italian, volunteer at a charity event or local shelter at least once this year, complete a couch to 5k challenge, finally book that trip you’ve been dreaming of, or take concrete steps to fulfilling a goal or aspiration you’ve wanted to accomplish for many years now? Here are some great resources to help you mindfully start this new year by aiming to optimize your overall health and well-being and achieve success (however you choose to define it) in 2016:

The American Psychological Association (APA) provides a variety of helpful strategies in: “Making Your New Year’s Resolution Stick.”  The APA also offers an incredibly informative, related article, “What You Need to Know About Willpower: The Psychological Science of Self-Control.”

Additionally, Health.com shares numerous useful suggestions in “21 New Year’s Resolutions You’ll Actually Keep”  and “Top 10 Healthiest New Year’s Resolutions”

Wishing everyone a very happy & healthy 2016!

Encouraging Awareness & Action:  What is one health-focused goal you can commit to working on in 2016?  Why is accomplishing that goal important to you?  What are 3 specific things you can do to help yourself achieve that goal in 2016?
