New Year’s Resolutions have been around for years, but most people nowadays don’t make them.
There are usually the same resolutions made, with 21% of people’s new year’s resolutions being to eat healthier.
80% resolutions fail by the second week of February. This is why it is important to make resolutions that you are able to stick to, by making small steps to a healthier lifestyle!
A great resolution is not only to eat healthier and get more exercise, but to get the family in on it too. By setting a good example, children will follow suit and this can help set them up for a healthier and fitter future.
