To many, a new year is the perfect time to set new goals and aspirations. Do you want to eat healthier? Get better grades? Invest in yourself? Deciding a new year’s resolution may be easy, but sticking to it can be hard. If you are having trouble, here’s a few tips. • Start Small o Do you want to exercise more? Start by going to the gym a few days out of the week. • One Step At a Time o Just because it’s a new year doesn’t mean you have to reinvent yourself. Find one thing about yourself to change. • Share Your Resolution o If you feel that you may not be able to stick to your resolution alone, find a partner or a group to help you stay on track. • Don’t Be Hard On Yourself o Remember that no one is perfect. Don’t give up because you didn’t stick to your diet or didn’t go to the gym. Everyone has their ups and downs. The staff at Campus Pointe wishes everyone a Happy New Year. Thank you all for an awesome 2019 and we look forward to an even better 2020!
