Have you come-up with a New Year’s resolution?
Are you looking to lose a few extra kilograms that you may have added during the festive season?
Are you a smoker who is looking to try and kick the habit this new year?
Whatever changes you are looking to make, if they are geared towards improving your health and wellbeing, then you need to be applauded.
The start of a new year is the perfect time to start a new phase in your life.
There are a lot of us who will be determined to develop new habits to exercise more, eat less, socialise more (or less), or quit smoking.
All new endeavours are difficult to sustain for more than a short time. It does require a concerted effort to make these new habits a permanent part of your life.
The most important thing to remember when you are determined to make change is that there is support at every corner.
Family, friends, your local GP and even your local community pharmacist are on hand to provide the support and necessary advice to help you achieve your health goals.
If you are planning a diet, exercise regime or quit smoking, it would be beneficial to consult your GP or pharmacist to ensure that your personal and long-term health remains paramount.
