To start off, let’s dive into what actually goes into making a New Year’s resolution to get healthier. What do you need? Where do you even begin?

Making the Choice to Get Healthier

The first step toward achieving a healthier lifestyle in 2011 is to actually make the choice to get healthier. Commit to it. Remind yourself that your health is so incredibly important and when you’re in good health, you can better enjoy the things you love, like running, exercising, playing games, or even just relaxing with your family over a nice dinner. Life simply feels better when you’ve got a healthy outlook.

The Next Step

Once you’ve made the decision to get healthier, it’s time to narrow things down a bit. When you decide that you want to be healthy, think about what areas in your life you can actually improve in to achieve that goal. Do you need to eat better? Exercise more? Make more time for relaxation? Decide which areas of your wellness (mind, body, and spirit) need some rejuvenation and change and then move from there. If you’re not sure where to start, it may not be a bad idea to schedule an appointment with your doctor, nutritionist, or spiritual leader. Oftentimes, they can help you find out what areas of your wellness need some improving. After that, it’s time to develop a plan of action.

Planning for a Healthier 2011

Planning your path to wellness won’t be easy, but it will keep you on track once you start putting it into action. Develop some ideas for how you can improve those specific areas of wellness that you decided upon earlier. If you need to start exercising more, work out a time of day and a workout routine that might work well for you and then stick to it. If it’s eating healthier, start reading up on portion control and what foods might be best for your body. If it’s getting more rest and relaxation, make some time to meditate and maybe even experiment with a group or guided mediation session.

With some work and heart, these three things should be the right step towards keeping your New Year’s resolution to get healthier. In our next post, we’ll talk about some of the things you may need to actually start working toward your goal.
