Dear readers,

Happy new year! As we embark on a new year many will be making resolutions for a fresh start going forward. However, somewhere between the new year and March those vows get broken. Family and work obligations take over and it's goodbye resolutions until next year. This year, try a trick that may seem strange — downsize your expectations. That's right! Go for less and get more.

1. Slowly start working out more

2. Get enough sleep

3. Drink lots of water

4. Visit your primary care doctor to discuss your weight, diet and any problems you are having. Also, ask about what screenings including blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol, and vaccines you'll need throughout the year.

Remember, you can't rebuild your body and redesign your health in a single leap but if you take enough baby steps you can make big strides towards a healthier and happier new you.
