How are those resolutions going?
Experts: Failed New Year’s goals may have silver lining
Sunday, January 6, 2013
The new year brings a wave of New Year’s resolutions. As we near completion of our first week, many of those plans for the new year may have expired.
Local experts offer tips on how to benefit the most from those resolutions, whether they are kept or not. Mitch Rademan, personal training coordinator for the Jefferson City Area YMCA, said people should consider joining a group fitness class to help them meet their exercise goals. He said the most important thing is to make fitness enjoyable.
Sarah Burbee, a licensed and registered dietitian with Capital Region Medical Center’s Diabetes Management Center, said it’s important for resolutions to be manageable.
Dr. Joseph McCormack, a psychologist with St. Mary’s Health Psychology Services, believes it’s important for people to not be perfectionists when it comes to New Year’s resolutions.
