Honolulu’s Top Osteopathic Physicians Encourage You to Get Out & Get Active This New Year, Honolulu, Hawaii

Now’s the time to start writing your New Year’s resolutions, and the expert osteopathic physicians from IMUA Orthopedics, Sports & Health have just the thing to top your list. If you’ve already written down “lose weight” or “get in shape,” consider a more positive approach — “get out, get active.” In 2017, Honolulu, Hawaii’s caring orthopedic doctors encourage everyone to get outside and live happy, healthy lives.

Exercise can boost your mood, improve your sleep, rev up your energy, and extend your lifespan — not to mention keep you healthy, and strong. Here’s how to seamlessly work this vital activity into your new year:

  • Start Small: During the time for New Year’s resolutions, many people opt for the all-or-nothing approach. However, unrealistic goals often lead to people giving up altogether. For example, if you never exercise, don’t resolve to start running five miles a day. Instead, start by jogging one and walking two. In a week, start jogging one-and-a-half and walking one-and-a-half, then jogging two and walking two, and so on until you reach a milestone. Then, keep building on it! That way, you’ll continue to progress and you won’t beat yourself up in the meantime.
  • osteopathic physicianMake A Plan: It’s easy to make resolutions, but it’s another thing to stick to them. By realistically working your New Year’s goals into your calendar, you’ll be best set up for success in the days, months, and weeks to come. Don’t overbook yourself; pencil in what you really believe you can accomplish, and be explicit. Don’t just say you’ll work out; sign up for a class or get your mountain bike ready. It’s also helpful to focus on actions rather than goals. For example, rather than scribbling “10-pound weight loss goal” on your calendar, write “exercise 10 days in a row goal.”
  • Enlist A Friend: Having someone to hold you accountable always makes achieving your goals easier. Plus, doing things with friends is more fun! This year, find a buddy or support group that will get you through those days when you just don’t feel like getting out of bed.
