How to keep your New Year's resolution

Jan 1, 2013

If you want to keep those New Year’s resolutions, one University of Rhode Island professor says the best way is to create a plan. URI kinesiology  professor Bryan Blissmer says break the big goal into manageable steps and monitor yourself to help stay on track.

“What that does is make something that might have been an unconscious process before and put it in your conscious brain. So rather than operating on automatic pilot in doing these things, by writing it having to write it down, record it, it makes it so that it’s now a conscious thing.”
Blissmer says there are plenty of apps and websites to help monitor weight and calorie intake. He also suggests sharing your goals with friends and family and ask them to help you stay on track.
