TomatoeVia Blue Shield of California, HUFFPOST, New York Times, Time Magazine

About 45% of Americans make a New Year’s Resolution each year, but according to a study from the University of Scranton only about 8% of those people achieve those resolutions. While those aren’t the best odds, setting a New Year’s resolution can be a great place to start your journey towards healthier-living. It’s important to take some time before you set your resolution to think about what’s achievable for you, how you will stay on track in 2013 and how new habits are formed. To help you succeed in the New Year, we’ve compiled some of the most recent advice for meeting your resolutions in 2013. Best wishes, and remember we are here if you need us!
