Health Tip: Wellness/Prevention – How to Make Resolutions Stick

Clinical Psychologist Dr. Josh Klapow says that resolutions are more easily made than kept, but there are ways to turn them into lifelong habits. He advises fol- lowing the S.M.A.R.T. System, which includes the following 5 steps:

  1. Set specific goals
  2. Monitor actions by keeping track of progress
  3. Arrange for success by eliminating barriers
  4. Recruit a support team to help with motivation
  5. Treat yourself for keeping your resolutions!
