By now, most people have already quit

I don’t know who needs to hear this, but if you’re struggling with your New Year’s goals right now… DO NOT GIVE UP! Why? Because you deserve better than that.
In fact, did you know that the second Friday in January has become known as “Quitter’s Day”? Yup, it’s true…

The second Friday in January is supposedly the day by which most people have ditched their resolutions. 🤯

But, there’s ONE powerful way that you can shut down those naysayers:

Instead of quitting, commit to ONE healthy action today. (It’s that simple.) Need some easy ideas? Here’s a list of 15 healthy actions you can do ASAP even if you’ve already put your goals on the shelf — and all you have to do is choose ONE:

  • Drink a glass of water
  • Spend 5 minutes quietly focusing on your breath
  • Go for a walk
  • Take a multivitamin
  • Do some squats
  • Plan a healthy dinner
  • Put your phone away for 30 minutes
  • Go outside for some fresh air
  • Write in a journal for 5 minutes
  •  Reach out to a friend or other supportive person
  •  Brush your teeth
  •  Hire a coach
  •  Read a self-development article or watch a video
  •  Adjust your goals
  •  Eat an apple

Remember, do just one thing.

Then, use that teeny-tiny bit of momentum to power your next healthy thing… and your next… and your next.

It’s amazing what you can accomplish when you 1) have a plan and 2) work the plan!
