Many Will Make (and Break) New Year's Resolutions

It's the time of year when many people pledge to make positive changes in their lives, such as losing weight, eating healthier foods, giving up smoking or going on a strict budget.Louisville life coach Stacy Vicari says those who make resolutions for the new yearshould try to keep them realistic."I think that the best new year's resolutions are ones that aren't framed as resolutions, but instead annual goals," she said.Vicari says its common for resolutions to be broken early in the new year.She advises people to set short term goals throughout the year that can be easily measured, such as daily caloric intake for those trying to lose weight.More information about New Year's resolutions  and ways to stick to them can be found here.
