The most common New Year’s Resolution in the United States (according to 2015 Nielsen Study) regards getting in shape, whether it be getting healthy, losing weight or toning up. January is the best time to jumpstart those healthy living goals, especially since January is National Family Fit Lifestyle Month.
Most healthy living resolutions fail before the end of the first month, hence why using fads and drastic changes won’t work. The key is to change the habits and lifestyle as a whole to ensure you stick to your goals and resolutions. Family members make the best accountability partners and it works out even better when you make healthy living lifestyle changes as a unit and do it together. This could be eating better, working out more or simply cutting out unhealthy habits like excessive drinking or smoking.
