Ditch the Resolutions: Try This "New Year, New You" Plan for 365 Days of Health!

If your new year’s resolutions have already left your starving, sore, stressed and frankly a little miserable, you may want to rethink your strategy. Instead, try this “New Year, New You” plan to live healthier and more energized in 2018:

Put self-care first. Spend 10 minutes a day on just you to feel more energized, organized and happy.

Get some exercise. If you’re one of the 80 percent who can’t squeeze in 30 minutes a day, take three 10-minute movement breaks for the same health benefits.

Make time for appointments. Schedule your annual checkups and screenings in January, before calendars are booked and motivation is lost.

Eat healthier. Focus on fruits, veggies, lean protein and whole grains, not on pants size.

Unplug. Use time spent mindlessly surfing to catch up on sleep, self-care and relationships with others.

Start the new year off right. Ditch overzealous resolutions and focus on living healthier every day of the year!
