So, you’ve decided to set forth and accomplish a goal in 2017 – that’s great! You are among the 50 percent of Americans who make a resolution at the start of each year. The question is: Will you be among the 8 percent who actually stick to it?

With Res-Q on your side, our bet is yes. However, we want to increase your odds a bit, so let’s review some tips on how to succeed (for real, this time).   

Goal: Lose Weight

If you’ve decided you want to slim down in 2017, you should set measurable goals. “Losing weight” is a nebulous and lofty goal that’s difficult to achieve if you don’t give yourself mini milestones.  However, if you say you are going to eliminate sugar from your diet and walk for 30 minutes three times a week in the hopes that you’ll lose 5 pounds in two weeks (and build from there), the end goal becomes more achievable. Res-Q’s brand new Ideal Weight can help you on your weight-loss journey. In fact, clinical studies show when taken as directed and paired with a sensible diet, most people notice results in two weeks.

Goal: Start Exercising

Getting active is one of the best things you can do for your health. It’s great for your heart, joints, brain and mood. If you haven’t gotten much activity lately, you may feel stiff and sore when you first start. This is completely normal. GlycoMarine and 1250 omega-3 can help lubricate your joints and keep you moving throughout the year.

Goal: Get More Sleep

“I’m so tired.” If these words sound familiar, chances are you’re not getting enough restorative sleep. The average adult needs seven to eight hours of shuteye nightly. If you want to stay healthy, this is a requirement – not an option. Some researchers say regularly depriving yourself of sleep is just as bad for your health as smoking. Omega-3s can help regulate your circadian rhythm so you feel sleepy when you should. If you have trouble falling and staying asleep, Res-Q PM could be what you need to help you get the rest your body needs.

Goal: Eat Better

We’ve all been there. We have good intentions to eat well, but then someone brings cookies to work. It’s OK to indulge occasionally if you stay on track the rest of the time. One of the best ways to do this is to plan ahead – look at restaurant menus before you get there and choose a healthy option; fill up on the veggie tray at the party before you choose a couple calorie-rich options; keep a healthy snack in the car while you’re out running errands so you’re not tempted to hit a fast food drive-through.  If sugar cravings are your nemesis, 105MAX could help. It helps fight those cravings and supports healthy blood sugar metabolism.

Goal: Be Happier

Ah, the elusive state of mind. When asked what’s wanted most in life, the majority of people simply reply, “I want to be happy.” Although many, many factors contribute to contentment, a positive attitude certainly plays a starring role. If you’re one of the billions struggling to stay positive, omega-3s may be just what the doctor ordered. Time and time again, studies show omega-3s, particularly those high in EPA, can help ease depression and improve mood. And when you’re feeling good, you will feel more motivated to accomplish all of your goals, all year long!
