Growing old does not make us sick, it’s growing sick that makes us old.” -Tim Morrow.

One of the most popular goals on most New Year’s reso-lution lists is improving one’s health. Most of us struggle with dieting, exercise, and staying on track. Often, we give up and quit. That’s one of the reasons this goal category is listed first in the journal, and it’s the longest chapter. With-out good health (physical and mental), we won’t be able to achieve any goal, at least not for long.

Setting health goals along with implementing a new exercise routine can be dramatic and require a great deal of planning, support, dedication, and discipline. Especially with interruptions like holiday meals, potlucks, social gatherings, and vacations throughout the year. Be encouraged! Plan-ning and implementing daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly routines can help you succeed.

Of course, before implementing any new health plan or diet, you should consider scheduling an appointment with your primary physician and sharing your intentions. In fact, that should be a goal (yearly, bi-annually, monthly). Your primary physician can advise you and help design a plan that’s specific for your health goals. As you continue to pursue your health-related goals, you will notice other tasks in your life get accomplished with more confidence.
