No matter what your focus one easy way to stick to your resolution is to start eating healthy snacks instead of whatever is in the vending machine! Granted, vending machines are convenient, but so is ordering snacks online for great prices- You don’t even have to leave your desk!

Of course choosing healthy snacks is only one step to create a healthier lifestyle. It is important to exercise regularly, get enough sleep and eat healthy meals as well as healthy snacks.
Here are some suggestions to stick to your New Year’s Resolutions:
1. Be specific. Don’t resolve to lost weight, or change eating habits. Select a certain amount of weight and a time limit to do it in, or say you’re going to cut out using so much salt, or only eat dessert once a week. Something manageable and measurable.
2. Write it down.
3. Review your resolution constantly. If your resolution is buzzing through your head, it’s easier to stick to it. Leave notes in your office, your kitchen or your bathroom for constant reminders.
4. Hold yourself accountable. Tell other people about your resolution. Find people with similar resolutions and work together, whatever works for you to make yourself feel accountable for success and failure.
5. Think big. Maybe you need a big change, a big adventure – a trip to a foreign place, a break-up, a move, a new job. Let yourself imagine anything, and plan from there.
6. Think small. Don’t think that you have to make a huge change to make a difference in your life. Some times the small simple things are the most important for you to change in order to lead to bigger goals.
7. Ask for help. Why is this so hard? But every time I ask for help, I’m amazed at how much easier my task becomes.
8. Consider making only pleasant resolutions. We can make our lives happier in many ways. If you have a challenging resolution, couple it with something enjoyable to reward yourself for your hard work. For example, if you resolve to go to the gym more often, also resolve to see more movies- counter an active resolution with a relaxing and enjoyable one.
9. Consider giving up a resolution. If you keep making and breaking a resolution, consider whether you should relinquish it entirely. Put your energy toward changes that are both realistic and helpful. Don’t be discouraged if you don’t achieve one of your resolutions because there are other ones that are also important.
10. Keep your resolution every day. Weirdly, it’s often easier to do something every day (exercise, post to a blog, deal with the mail, do laundry) than every few days.
11. Set a deadline.
12. Don’t give up if something interferes with your deadline, just readjust your plan accordingly.
GOOD LUCK, and HAPPY NEW YEAR!
