Even though it's only a few days into the new year, many people are already struggling with their new resolutions.
Some reports show that as many as 2/3s of Americans make resolutions, but nine out of ten report breaking them before the end of January.
Experts say to be successful, don't make your resolutions so lofty. The best advice is to be specific about your goal, make sure you can measure success, be action oriented, make sure the goals are realistic and set a time frame for your success.
Veronica Whalen, RMH Wellness Center, says, "If people say I want to get in shape, I want to stop smoking, I want to eat better or I want to lose weight, that's great, but you need to narrow it down so you don't set yourself up for failure."
