The more colorful the diet, the better

If your exercise and healthy eating habits have been derailed this holiday season, it’s understandable. Schedules are busier, stress is higher and tempting sweets are everywhere.

New Year’s celebrations may bring more of the same, but you can still get back on track. Or maybe you can aim for a healthier lifestyle in 2023.

If you’re determined, that’s a great start.

Many people make New Year’s resolutions this time of year, then abandon them after a month, said Stephen Moore, Extension educator for Ohio State University LiFEsports. If you want a healthy habit to stick, try setting some SMART goals, rather than making general resolutions. These types of goals are:

  • Specific
  • Measurable
  • Attainable
  • Relevant
  • Timely

SMART goals can address any aspect of your life – wellness in emotional, health, social health, financial health or physical health, for example.
