Get Back on Track for the New Year
Are you already having trouble keeping those New Year’s resolutions to give up your unhealthy habits? Don’t despair.
Healthy lifestyle changes take time and effort to make. Transformations don’t always proceed as planned. Most people face setbacks on the way to their goals.
• Give yourself a break. Replace negative thoughts with positive self-talk. Everyone faces obstacles to change. Each time you try, your chances of succeeding improve.
• Change your perspective. Instead of admitting defeat, learn from your mistakes and remember your long-term goals.
• Reflect on your progress. A short-term relapse doesn’t erase your previous progress. Think about what you’ve already gained by eating a healthy diet or cutting back on drinking.
• Seek support. Tell your friends and family about your renewed goals. Ask for help in staying on track.
• Plan ahead for high-risk situations. Identify the reasons you fell off-track. Did you skip exercising on vacation? Start smoking again during a stressful time at work? Write down a strategy for avoiding these triggers next time. For instance, scout out walking paths near your hotel or talk with a trusted friend to cope with pressure.
For everything from smoking cessation options to home-fitness equipment, Rite Aid has the wellness products you need to reach your New Year’s goals.
