As we embark on the 2nd month of the year it is thought that up to 45% of you have already broken your New Year’s resolution.

So what will it take to motivate us? How can we succeed?

The top 3 resolutions made each year are –

  1. Weight loss
  2. Exercise
  3. Quitting smoking

Others include better money management or debt reduction.

If you can relate to any of those then today’s news may just inspire you to get back on track.

Weight loss, exercise and quitting the fags are all great for your health but also give you more money in your pocket covering all 5 of our top New Year’s promises!

Here’s some more inspiration for you:

Diabetes or excess weight account for almost 800,000 cases of cancer each year.

One person each month can spend an average of £120 on take away meals.

475,000 hospital admissions were due to smoking.

On average each person spends £250 a month on smoking.

A gym membership is as little as £20 a month.

Walking, running, skating, dancing is absolutely FREE.

You made a resolution for a reason, and sticking to it can not only make your life better but your family and friends will also benefit.

If you have given up already on giving up or flagging slightly then we encourage you to remember the benefits of sticking to your new healthy regime.
