Patch Blog: Small Changes Yield Big Results

Take some small steps to get healthy in 2012.

With the New Year approaching it is important to set goals that will keep us on track. So often we think of goals as result oriented rather than action oriented. An example is "I want to lose 20 pounds". This is fine and will work for some. Another alternative is, "I am going to walk after dinner three times a week".

Rather than doing the same thing that didn't work in the past, it's helpful to try something new. The answer is often an improved version of  something that almost worked before. You don't need to invent the wheel. Many of the things we want are obtainable but we need to be organized and systematic.

If you want to be healthier in 2012, start is by committing to change one meal a week. Next,  pick a day that you plan to take a walk (weekends are good). The trick I've found is not to add too quickly to your new behavior. You want to take it all in before you add a strict diet or bootcamp at 6 AM in the morning.

A lot depends on where you are and how far you want to go. The biggest obstacle is usually how far away the end result may appear. If you want to drive to New York, you wouldn't get in the car a just drive. You would do some research and find the best time of year and the best routing.

Getting healthy is not just good for you. Making a choice to get healthy benefits all the people who share your company and want your quality time in the future. Best of luck and wishing you all success in 2012.
