It’s that time of year when people make resolutions for a healthier new year. Gym memberships sky rocket, treadmill lines form, diets ensue, and cleanses cause people to temporarily suffer.
We’re all familiar with the trend. That’s because most of us have gone through those motions at least once before. Each year, as fall unfolds, the days get shorter, the nights get colder, and it feels like our healthy habits are hard to keep up, let alone begin. Then we’re hit with a one-two punch of festivities intended to fill our bellies with sweets and overindulgence. First it’s Halloween, then Thanksgiving, then Christmas… and a final years cap of New Year’s Eve.
When we emerge from the storm on January first, we’re primed for a change. We tell ourselves we’ll eat better. We’ll workout. We’re going to get into shape. This year we’re going to be fit.
What happens next?
