5 resolutions doomed to failure – but not with these easy hacks

You feel it: It’s your year to (finally!) keep those New Year’s resolutions.

Not so fast.

It’s a hard truth, but if you’re approaching your resolutions the same way you always have, you just might be setting yourself up for failure.

So how should you plan for success? According to Dr. Vanessa Spearman, an internist with Augusta University Health, these easy hacks can help turn that resolution into a habit that you can actually keep.

Learn how to keep your resolutions in this post on the Your Health Today blog.
