It’s almost two months into the new year, and for some, that means two months into another list of new year’s resolutions.
According to research only eight percent of people actually keep their resolutions.
More exercise and better fitness are the most often listed resolutions but also can be some of the hardest to keep, as pain often over-rides commitment.
Dylan Kramer of the Norm Waitt YMCA in South Sioux City says small, incremental lifestyle changes may be less noticeable, but they have a much greater chance of creating real change.
“My best advice would be to stay involved, stay active. Keep talking about it, you know, post about it, what are you doing, where you at, what kind of workshops. Stay involved,” Kramer says
Another tip is to make expects resolution realistic.
