As another month flies by, you may find yourself reflecting on your new year’s resolutions. Did you decide that this would be the year that you make some positive changes? The year you would be healthier, fitter and happier? Are you on track?
When we first make that commitment, we’re motivated and determined that we’re going to make it happen this time. The trick to staying on track is to use that initial motivation and determination to create new habits.
Breaking old habits and creating new ones, doesn’t happen overnight. You’re going to need structure, routine and consistency. If you’re like most people, you’re bound to lose focus from time to time.

Because days become weeks, and the longer you’re out of your routine, the harder it is to get back into it.
