Keeping Your New Year’s Resolutions
Even if you're comfortable with how your life is going, it's never a bad thing to set goals or New Year's resolutions.

However, it's always a good idea to really think about why you want to set a goal in the first place.

You may make resolutions and goals with the best intentions; but even if you're the most disciplined and motivated person, you might have difficulty keeping them.

Instead of overloading your list, you may want to focus on small, realistic goals. Even though you may want to see immediate results, it's important to understand any changes you wish to make are not going to happen overnight. You may also want to reward yourself throughout your progress; this can encourage you to keep going.

Is there a way you can follow through with the goals and resolutions you've made?

Listen in as Dr. Mike and Jephtha Tausig-Edwards share how to make reasonable resolutions... resolutions you can actually keep and that can improve your life.
