The New Year brings with it the desire to change, to turn over a new chapter, to improve you somehow. It's that time of year again when many people resolve to improve their health. The problem is that most good intentions get derailed within a few weeks.

Have you realized that the majorities of the New Year’s resolutions are associated with your health? Yes, if you take a look over the list that your neighbor made, you surely will find at least one of these: Get fit, beat the stress, and lose weight. That is because everybody wants to enjoy life more and you can’t do it if you don’t have good health.
1. Get Fit: Getting fit will make you healthier, help you look better, and give you more energy. And if you're lacking in the self-esteem department, a little exercise can improve that, too. Regular exercise has been associated with more health benefits than anything else known to man. Studies show that it reduces the risk of some cancers, increases longevity, helps achieve and maintain weight loss, enhances mood, lowers blood pressure, and even improves arthritis. In short, exercise keeps you healthy and makes you look and feel better. And, if you're like most of us after the holidays, you are probably trying to improve your eating habits.
2. Beat Stress: Lowering your stress level is easier said than done. But stress is the culprit for many physical problems, and if you're stressed to the max, you may not sleep well, you may get depressed or angry - your hair can even fall out. Exercise helps to bump up the production of endorphins,your brain's feel-good neurotransmitters, into your blood stream.These give you a feeling of happiness and positively affect your overall sense of well-being. Also, as you begin to regularly do exercise, you’ll get rid of your daily tensions through movement and you may find that this focus on a single task has results in energy and optimism, helping you remains calm and clear in everything that you do.
3. Lose Weight: Over 66 percent of adult Americans are considered overweight or obese by recent studies, so it is not surprising to find that weight loss is one of the most popular New Year's resolutions. Setting reasonable goals and staying focused are the two most important factors in sticking with a weight loss program, and the key to success for those millions of Americans who made a New Year's commitment to shed extra pounds.
