This is one of the most common New Year resolutions people make almost every year. But this year, you can make your resolution a success by not expecting an overnight success. After all, you did not gain all that weight overnight. Keep a check on whatever you eat. Instead of depriving yourself of all the foods you may like, try to reduce their intake.

  • Quit smoking

You must have tried this many times before too, but failed. If you talk to an ex-smoker, you will see that he also tried multiple times to quit, and then eventually succeeded. Try out different methods and find the one that works best for you. Keep in mind the amount of money you will be saving by quitting smoking.

  • Stay active

This is one of the best resolutions you can make this year. Means of staying active may be taking a morning walk every morning, biking to the office everyday and using stairs instead of the elevator. You can also become a member of a sports club and get involved in your favorite sport.

  • Exercise regularly

This January, promise yourself to exercise regularly from now on. Get up half an hour earlier, find out the best exercises for your body, and exercise regularly at least half an hour daily. If your office has a gym, become a member of it.

  • Cut stress

A little stress now and then is natural, and it gives an energy boost too. but chronic stress can lead to several health related problems, including depression, insomnia, heart disease and obesity. Little sleep, poor diet, long working hours, no exercise, and no time with family can contribute to your stress levels.

  • So, try to sleep, relax, socialize, take vacations, and reduce your stress levels significantly. This will be beneficial for your physical as well as mental health.

These are some of the New Year 2013 resolution ideas that can help in improving your health this year.  Here’s to your happy and healthy New Year!
