Making Healthy New Year’s Resolutions Achievable in 2024 is Easier Than You Think
With the start of 2024 quickly approaching, we at Abundant Health Chiropractic and Wellness Center in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan know that you might be starting to think about New Year’s Resolutions to strive for involving your health. You might also be thinking that you always struggle to maintain these resolutions throughout the year. That is something that many people battle when it comes to making lifestyle changes to improve their health. Fortunately, with great suggestions from MaxLiving, we want to show you how much easier it can be to not only think of achievable resolutions but also incorporate them into your mid-Michigan lifestyle as we progress through 2024!
Simple Steps to Turn Your 2024 New Year’s Resolutions into Lifestyle Habits
Set Realistic & Named Dietary Goals to Start – Often, we try and push ourselves right at the start of the year with ideas that we are going to completely change our lifestyles to become healthier. Unfortunately, this is where the issue of burnout quickly takes hold and makes it more likely to stop trying for those resolutions. A good suggestion is to start the year with a specific goal in mind. For example, if your main 2024 goal is to eat healthier, start by doing something small such as drinking more water if you are not much of a water drinker. That will likely make a noticeable difference in how you feel. Over time, you can gradually increase this dedication by removing unhealthy junk food from your home to reduce that temptation. These small steps will quickly add up to making a significant overall difference in how you feel throughout 2024.

Workout Tips – One way that you can make it difficult for yourself to stay dedicated to working out is by not thinking about what your actual goal is. If your main mission is to just work out because you know it is the right thing to do, you may find it difficult to keep up with the process. As such, set out with a specific goal in mind. This could be something as simple as you want to make three specific nights a week your time to go to the gym and lift weights. Maybe you also take an hour a couple of times a week for a dedicated walk. Make the plan realistic to your schedule so you have less chance of canceling. These set goals will help you stay on track to achieving your healthy 2024 resolutions.
Mental Health Tips – Our physical health isn’t the only thing that can be difficult to improve. Mental health can be such a challenge to work on in our fast-paced world. As such, MaxLiving suggests doing something like eliminating social media from your daily life as much as possible. With science proving that social media is a strong source of generating dopamine, it can cause the rest of your daily life to become difficult as you are so focused on the good sensations you get from your phone or computer. Other ways to improve mental health in 2024 include meditation and improving the amount of sleep you get per night. Our office offers mental health services that can help set you in the right direction for a positive mindset.
