Spotlight on Health – January 2017-01-28T09:37:33-05:00

January not only marks a new year and a new month, but it also marks a fresh start for many people. Resolutions abound in January. Most are made with good intentions and then broken sometime later. Regardless of how your New Year’s resolutions normally turn out, this can be your year to keep them!

Almost half of American adults make at least one resolution, but less than half of these will make it after six months. However, research shows that people who make resolutions are 10 times more likely to reach their goals as people who don’t make any.

Instead of setting yourself up for failure this year, try making resolutions that you can keep to improve your lifestyle. At UAMS, we hope that you succeed in becoming healthier and happier in 2011.
