January Is The Month When New Year’s Health Resolutions Fail

Here’s How To Save Them

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.”  Aristotle

We’ve all made resolutions and failed. Great intentions like wanting better health, more energy, more money, more sleep, and better relationships are amongst the most popular made. Interestingly their failure is linked to certain similar reasons. Once you grasp the HOW TO WIN secrets of your resolutions, you’ll be able to join the ranks of the rare ones who actually hit their goals. According to U.S. News & World Report, the failure rate for New Year’s resolutions is said to be about 80 percent, and most lose their resolve by mid-February. If this is true, it’s clear that there is nothing wrong with us; the problem is in the tradition itself. What a relief, it’s not me or you, lol, it’s the WAY THE TRADITION HAS BEEN SET UP! Let’s unravel it now!

There’s some sort of pressure going around each year that says, “it’s a new year and it’s time to make new, or renew, some goals for the year.”

Personally speaking, I don’t engage in making New Year’s “resolutions” per se, and rather wrap my head around a goal and kick it out right away versus waiting. Instead, I choose to approach the end the year more like a year-end review of what’s gone very well and what has not, and what has exceeded my expectations, both in my business and my personal life. I have a process, and every year I do it with my kids and offer a workshop to do with my clients. By making significant decisions on what you want to amplify in your life and how you’re going to exert, energy, time and financial investment, for the next year provides a less pressured approach and can be ignited at ANY TIME of the year.

Ask yourself key critical questions, like: “What are the main areas that I want to expand on and bring into focus over the year, and what are desired outcomes?” Then go to work and design it. I like to create an envision board, which represents in pictures and word WHAT YOU WANT to see happen and then create the structure and schedule. For this I recommend a Mindful Map, which shows you HOW & WHEN you will execute your concrete plan with scheduled steps and milestones for achieving them. Bottom line, I believe we all want to generate more happiness and feel proud about who we are. I have hired lots of coaches and am blessed with successful mentors, who continually push me forward and help assess my plans and steps. Having accountability with guided support is the approach that works best for me.


Whether you’ve been in a rut for a few months or many years, I hope this article will help you to obtain your goals too. Here’s 3 of my 17 favorite tips to go beyond motivation and help you to finally achieve your weight loss or health goals. For the rest of the tips see the online, digital article. I hope you get stronger and feel your all time best this coming year.

TIP #1 Make a Plan and Set Goals:
Setting goals with specific behaviors is a much more successful and more powerful plan than ‘I want more or less of that.’ That means building habits instead of worrying about willpower and creating an environment that is congruent with your specific goal. Surround yourself with people, places and things that support you, and not influence negative feelings based on your choices.

TIP #2: Get Some Daily Physical Activity
Research supports that physical activity is one of the most important components of good health. “Physical activity is almost magical in its ability to improve quality of life,” Dr. Freedhoff, medical director of the Bariatric Medical Institute said. It reduces the risks of nearly every physical and mental condition there is.” If you can only do one thing in terms of improving your diet or fitness, I’d improve fitness first. It has been shown shorter, resistance band workouts, such as the 17 Minute Workouts I created, provide the perfect steppingstone, to now only sizzling , to now only sizzling , to now only sizzling fat, getting stronger and leaner but also stimulate serotonin and you actually FEEL GOOD and proud about yourself, which helps keep you more mindful all day long.

TIP #3: Get Enough Sleep
One third of Americans don’t get enough sleep, but it’s impossible to overstate how essential sleep is to good health. Sleep affects your immune system, hormones, appetite, cravings, weight, thinking, energy, concentration, temper, mood … even life expectancy. Most of my sleep deprived clients saw dramatic sleep pattern changes in 3-7 days by experimenting with the elimination of caffeine, red meat, and no phone/computers 1.5 hours prior to sleep. Replacing coffee with energizing nutrient dense, alkalizing Hot Maca Chocolate (Alkalizing Coffee Replacer – Maca & Cacao) – lastly, get started by identifying with the tip(s) that make the most sense for you, then tear it out and place in an area you will review each month. When November comes around kick start by visiting your yearly goals and creating your ENVISION BOARD 2023.
