Each new year brings resolutions to do better, get in shape, lose weight, get out of pain, and get healthier. At my gym, we brace for the rush of new members, knowing that by March, the numbers will be “back to normal.”

are overdrugged and have too many unnecessary surgeries.

Because many resolutions go unfulfilled, most people don’t even bother to take the time to make them anymore. There’s too much confusion around what actions really work, and too many failures over the years can cause apathy on the subject of creating New Year’s resolutions. I think that keeping it simple and knowing what really works can cut through this apathy and help you create a lifestyle that keeps you healthy and full of energy so you can chase your dreams, big and small. People are bombarded into confusion by an avalanche of misinformation fueled by vested interests — like “Cocoa Puffs are part of a nutritious breakfast.” Being blasted with so much imprecise information can unsettle anyone, and it might seem impossible to discern the deceit from the truth, but it is doable. My interest is in getting and keeping you healthy, and that’s what I intend to do throughout 2020. My first goal is to get you out of pain. The physical stress from pain hurts and damages you over time. I work to identify the source of your problem rather than masking the pain with drugs. I continuously educate you on how a chiropractic adjustment works, why maintenance care is so important, and what the alternatives and risks are to using conventional drugs and surgery. There are lifesaving drugs and necessary surgeries, but I think you’ll agree that we, as a nation,

My second goal is to address other health care problems you may have, such as digestive issues, inability to sleep, fatigue, and stress. My third goal is to help you create and maintain a healthy lifestyle so as you age, you’re not setting yourself up to spend the last part of your life in pain or disabled. Many people end up suffering from diabetes, heart problems, neuropathy, fatigue, and chronic pain because they didn’t lead a healthy lifestyle. My aim is to steer you away from that path. So how do you start working on a healthy New Year’s resolution? Just be willing to evaluate your lifestyle. Write down two columns: what’s working and what needs improvement. For example, do you need to minimize your sugar intake, move your body more, get more sleep, or quit smoking? Do you need to get back on maintenance care? How about eating more vegetables and minimizing those starchy carbs? Is there a relationship that causes you stress that needs fixing? Is there a hobby you’ve been meaning to start? Are you associating with friends who support you? Do you need to change jobs? What’s really important to you — what’s your dream?

things that need improvement and pick just one area to address at a time , being careful not to overwhelm yourself. Keep it simple by setting small targets that you can achieve, and pat yourself on the back for each goal you attain while forgiving yourself for the temporary failures that are sure to occur. Remember this Confucius quote: “Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising every time we fall.” As always, I’m here to partner with you to create a better 2020. Wishing you a healthy and happy new year!

In knowledge and health,

Be sure to acknowledge yourself for what you’re doing right. Then, look at the list of
