Tips for Keeping Your New Year’s Resolutions

Keeping Your New Year's Resolutions

Many people find themselves making steadfast promises to themselves in January only to falter on them come February. Arm yourself with these tips to help you stick to your ambitions all year long.

 

Start Small

 

While it’s good to set high standards for yourself, if you make goals that are too far-fetched you’ll be hard-pressed to reach them. Instead, start with small goals and add more each month.

 

Talk About It

 

An effective way of staying on track with your goals is to talk about your progress regularly with friends and/or family members. You can also keep a journal or online blog that records your experience, while holding you accountable to your resolutions.

 

Don’t Give Up

 

Sometimes people go into New Year’s resolutions with an all-or-nothing attitude. But you have to give yourself some wiggle room and plenty of forgiveness to succeed in the long-run. Remind yourself that a perfect record is not what a resolution is about. If you slip up, start again the next day. There’s no need to give up and wait until the next New Year to start making positive life changes.

 

Happy New Year from all of us here at Sanderson Ford! And good luck on your goals for 2018.

How To Eat Healthy On The Road

Sometimes it can seem impossible to eat healthy on the road during a road trip. The trick is to plan ahead and use technology to your advantage! Here are some tips to help you make it happen…

# 1 – Stock up!

Before your trip, buy plenty of healthy snacks. Humans are creatures of convenience. We are much less likely to indulge in junk food if the car is loaded with all-natural granola bars, fruit, trail mix, nuts, and peanut butter.

# 2 – Use technology to your advantage!

There are lots of great apps out there that you can use to help you eat better on the road. iExit tells you exactly what you’ll find off of any exit. Clean Plates can help you find restaurants that use healthy ingredients.

# 3 – Plan your indulgence!

If you know you are going to cheat, it’s better to do it in a controlled fashion instead of suddenly going hog wild and throwing caution to the wind. Maybe if you really love fast food breakfast, decide that will be your indulgence for the day. Or, tell yourself if you eat well all day, you can bash some fro-yo for an after-dinner dessert.
