Handwritten New Year’s Resolution 2017.

The key to keeping any New Year’s resolutions is to be realistic and have a sustainable action plan. While the impulse is to dive into the deep end, a local nutritionist says lasting results come from the small stuff. Little steps can add up to big – and lasting – results, says Judy Nicassio of Rejuvena Health & Aesthetics in Scottsdale. Nicassio offers the following ‘Tiny Tips’ on how to find success with some common New Year’s Resolutions.

Weight Loss: Swap Soda for Water

This small action will move you in the right direction to better health in the long run. It’s not just the calories that make this little switch so impactful, but the shift away from sugar and sweeteners.

Exercise: Take The Stairs

Take the stairs instead of the elevator. Jog back and forth to the mailbox instead driving by. These little choices can add up to more movement throughout the day.

Eat Better: Make Your Snacks

Preparing your own food is a great way to eat better and lose weight, but if you’re not a cook it can be intimidating. Start by focusing on making your own snacks. Prepare your food from fresh ingredients. This will help your pocket book as well as your waistline and give you control over nutritional quality.

Reduce Stress: 15 Analog Minutes

It has been proven that media overload can increase your risk for all kinds of maladies. Take at least 15 minutes out of each day to unplug and do some belly breathing or guided imagery to relax and rejuvenate.

Whole Picture: Shift Focus to Overall Better Health

Instead of focusing on just the weight loss, Nicassio recommends shifting the focus; choose better health over weight loss. Even though weight loss may be a goal, place your focus more on healthy eating. In doing so, weight loss becomes a side benefit of the bigger goal of achieving optimal health.
