ARE YOUR ‘HEALTHY’ NEWYEAR’S RESOLUTIONS DOOMEDTO FAIL?

Gregory Kunkel, Esq.

HAPPY NEW YEAR’S!

As I write this month’s column, we are quickly approaching the end of 2019 and anticipating the joys and challenges that the new year will bring. On a personal note, 2020 will mark my 32nd year practicing law and the seventh year since Kunkel Law Firm was established. I am truly grateful for the opportunity to represent clients throughout western Pennsylvania in workers’ compensation, Social Security disability, and employment rights cases this past year, and I look forward to continuing to provide quality legal representation to injured and disabled workers in 2020. It is incredibly gratifying to help individuals obtain the benefits they are entitled to receive under the law. Most of all, I would like to thank our clients for their continued support and trust that they place in our firm. I am especially honored and grateful for the trust so many of you expressed in referring family and friends in their time of need. I wish all of our clients and friends a happy and prosperous 2020.

To set yourself up for success in 2020, check out these smart resolution swaps below.

Instead, try setting yourself up for a healthy long-term diet by eating more of a nutrient-dense food group. Your vitamin intake will go up, and you’ll be too full to eat that second slice of cake. “We’re big fans of goals that start with ‘eat more,’” Lauren Slayton, the director of the nutrition counseling service
