Whether you’ve committed yourself to lose weight, quit smoking, save money, or (fill in the blank), the trick to it all is persistence. The whole reason those behaviors started was to alleviate a situation that was less than satisfying. Eating, smoking, or spending money are 3 quick ways to flood the brain with dopamine. The aftermath adds-up over time. Obesity, difficulty breathing, debt – they all take shape to show you these habits cannot be sustained. That being said, here’s the best advice for the 2018 resolve to improve the status quo. Make goals you can reach. Nothing is more self defeating than failing before you even begin the task at hand. Instead of losing 20-pounds, make a goal like going for a walk. Little steps lead to big results, over time. A weight loss patch is a great idea, if you’re already primed with a healthy lifestyle. Make it a sustainable change! #babysteps
