What's the MOST Important Thing To Do For Successful New Years Resolutions?

Pretend there were two diet plans. Plan 1 had a proven track record of getting results, where you would lose 50 pounds in 3 months. The thing is, you wouldn’t lose one pound for the first 10 weeks.

Plan 2 had a proven track record of getting results also, but you would only lose 12 pounds in 3 months. With Plan 2, you would be losing one pound every week, slow and steady.

Which plan would have the better follow-through?

Funny enough, most people’s minds say “oh yeah, give me plan 1!” because that’s what logic and the numbers on paper say. But overall, we are much more likely to stick to Plan 2 because getting small wins helps keep us motivated to keep going.

Working towards health is only 20% head knowledge. It’s based 80% on our behavior. So when we see the small wins, we start getting more and more pumped to do the right things repetitively.

As many of you are in the early stages of your New Years Resolutions, remember to take joy in the small wins. And if you’re just now starting chiropractic care, we are going to do everything we can to get relief as soon as possible.  Because that will keep us on an upward spiral towards getting the pain to go away and stay away!
