Do you want to make 2019 your healthiest and best year ever….There’s No More Time to Waste.
How many times have you tried to change things? How many years have passed, and with them, your dreams of a healthy and vibrant life? Most disease is preventable, yet only 8% of people achieve their resolutions.
It is imperative that you make this year different if you want to be part of that 8%. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 69% of adults age 20 years and over are either overweight or obese, so it’s no wonder that 42% of all New Year’s Resolutions are weight loss related.
So what hinders most resolutions?
Experts say that the average American has too many competing priorities. In order to set yourself up for success, keep your goals simple. Creating a detailed plan on how to tackle excuses will also help you reach your desired outcome. Eating healthier, working out more, or losing weight isn’t just something you stumble into blindly. You need to have a blueprint for victory!
Weight Loss That Lasts a Lifetime
Researchers have discovered that weight loss that lasts a lifetime depends on the presence and effectiveness of the human body’s vital hormones. In today’s society low-quality foods cause the overproduction and burnout of these hormones, making weight loss nearly impossible—regardless of caloric intake.
Maybe you don’t need to lose weight, but you want to overcome a health issue. Or you want to have more energy, sleep better, get off medications and live a better life?

Positive Change Created Through Problem Solving Strategies
To create positive change in your health, or any area of your life, focus on problem solving strategies rather than obsessing over specific goals. We have all set goals that we have met and goals that have failed.
I would like to introduce a concept that will help improve success and avoid the pitfalls of failure and ultimately giving up on your outcomes. To better understand why setting outcome-specific goals may not be the best way to approach making important changes in your life.
Researchers have identified that the area of the brain responsible for recording our failures inhibits motivation to try again by suppressing dopamine-releasing neurons. This is to keep you from wasting time by repeating unsuccessful behaviors. Therefore, when goals are measured in terms of success and failure this area of the brain kills your incentive to give things another try.Make 2019 Your Healthiest Year Ever! #HealthResolutions Click To Tweet
Another function of the brain that affects outcome-oriented goals is implicit memory, which keeps track of patterns. Over time, implicit memory encourages you to stop unpleasant, difficult and painful behaviors. Because this happens unconsciously it may be weeks later before you notice that you’re off track and explains why most people revert back to their regular behaviors.
To avoid this common pitfall and set yourself up for success it is best to focus on the process of solving a problem and the joy that comes with figuring it out.
You can be the designer of your goals, habits and behaviors. So as you are setting goals for the New Year try designing a process instead. Reframe your goal as an interesting problem to solve and identify behaviors that may solve the problem, noting what works and doesn’t work, and adjust accordingly. Then track your success and celebrate small wins along the way.
