How to make your New Year Resolution a roaring success!

happy-new-year-2015-gold-1380The Telegraph recently carried an article that claims January is the worst month of the year to start a new diet or fitness routine. I couldn’t agree more!

Logically we are on a hiding to nothing if we try to make a one-step change from all the excesses of December to, what is often, a somewhat ascetic approach to life in January. It just doesn’t make sense. We have a hoard of goodies left over from the Christmas and New Year festivities – and even if we resist our own stash of sugar, some kind person will bring their surplus sugary stuff into the office in the hope that everyone else will consume it for them! We have the after-party emotional anti-climax to deal with while we get back into our usual routines – oh joy then to think of a spot of self-deprivation! And to top it off we’re in the middle of winter with not a hint of spring in sight – yet we fool ourselves that we are going to stick to the occasional cold lettuce leaf or yoghurt when what our bodies actually need to thrive is hearty warming winter food (think soups, stews and casseroles!)

So it really shouldn’t come as a surprise that a whopping 92% of new year diet and fitness resolutions fail within just a few weeks. Like the ohso short-lived new year fireworks, they might start dazzling well but they’ll quickly fizzle out!

taipei-cnySo could there be a valid reason why Chinese New Year happens in the middle of February? You bet!

The snowdrops are out, and the crocuses, daffodils and tulips are well on their way. The trees are showing a touch of new green colour. With our own sap rising we start to truly feel that spring is indeed on its way! With winter on its way out we experience hopeful anticipation for the rest of the year ahead. As the nights get much more noticeably lighter we even spring-clean our homes in readiness for a fresh start.

THIS is a great time to start a new diet and fitness routine, as the Telegraph article confirms.

The Chinese have always thought so – so why has it taken us a few thousand years to finally come to the same conclusion? Hmmm!?

So what about January? Well it’s a fantastic time to make our resolutions and plans for a positive change – starting in February! It’s a fantastic time to get our ducks in a row to ensure real success as spring approaches. It’s a great time to research how and what changes we’ll make.

It’s no accident that the next FREE RebalanceDiabetes seminar is most timely on 26th January 2015. If you are determined to make a successful positive change for you and your health then this is especially for you! I’ll give you lots of help to decide how you can spring to success in the Chinese Year of the Goat.

If there’s one action you can still usefully take in January it’s to BOOK HERE NOW!
