As the holidays close their grip on our minds, we start to remember some important things like eating healthy, exercising and making positive changes for the better.


In the period between Christmas and the New Year, a person’s New Year’s resolution is a popular topic of conversation. Some folks recognize the copious amounts of holiday food they have eaten and vow to go on a diet, while others claim they will get in shape. The results include crowded health food stores and gyms, while pre-dawn streets are packed with folks trying to make a habit out of running. In a few weeks, the fresh resolutions fade, though.


The first step to keeping your resolution is the need to stay focused. The hardest part of gaining a good habit is actually forming it. Make sure to get up each morning and do what you said you were going to do. It will seem easy in the beginning, but as time drags, you might wonder why you are subjecting yourself to early morning runs. Keep at it, though, and your body will thank you.


You should make sure you keep your resolutions for the right reasons. If you only have resolutions because you feel like you should have a resolution, you are doing it for the wrong reasons. Keep your priorities in check, including the reasons for your self-betterment.


If you keep your hard work up, be it on a new diet, exercise routine or something else entirely, before too long, it will seem second nature. If you have trouble keeping your motivation, think back to when you made the resolution and remember why you started down this road at all.


When all is said and done, if you keep with it, you will be able to say something many people can’t: You kept your resolution. Next year, when the gym fills up after the New Year, you can say you are not just there for the season.
