Everyone always comes up with New Year's Resolutions. In relation to health / fitness, people make bold resolutions with often unattainable goals. Most people start and then rapidly drop off when they realize they won't be able to attain the goals they set for themselves. So, to make it more effective, keep it simple and abide by these 3 simple rules:
1. Set realistic goals for your resolutions - stuff that you can actually achieve in a reasonable amount of time.
2. Keep your resolutions list short - top 3-5.
3. Prioritize the list 1-3 or 1-5.
If you can do these three simple things, you have a much greater chance of actually accomplishing your goals.
