New Years Resolution

Making a Healthy Start to 2014

Did you know that approximately 55% of Australians set New Years resolutions and of that only around 12% of people actually stick to them!? Let us help you be part of that 12%!!

Each year two of the most commonly set New Years resolutions are to Stop Smoking and to Lose weight & eat healthier.  There are many reasons as to why people do not always succeed in achieving their resolutions but a common issue is not having realistic steps or support in place.

A great way to start is to look at the points below & answer these questions;

  • What do I want to change and by when?
  • Why must I make this change?
  • What are the steps I need to take?
  • Who can support me?
  • How will I motivate myself?

At Community Pharmacy our Pharmacists & Pharmacy Assistants can help give you support and ongoing motivation to give you a better chance at succeeding with your Stop Smoking or Weight Loss goals for 2014.

If losing weight is your goal we can provide weekly weigh in’s, measuring & help with realistic goal setting. We have a range of nutritional supplements and meal replacement options also available in store.

There are a plethora of different options for helping you to quit smoking; tablets, sprays, patches, but one of the most important is setting a realistic goal & having people around to support you and to help you to refocus if slip ups occur. Our Pharmacists are available for one on one ‘Stop Smoking’ consultations. In these consultations they can:

  • Help select the best option for you
  • Offer you the option of coming in for a weekly support visit
  • Assist with, motivation, keeping you accountable & on track to reach your goal.
  • Provide assistance to re-focus if slip ups occur

When setting goals & resolutions always remember the following:

  1. Set achievable goals instead of ideal goals.
  2. Expect setbacks.
  3. Don't use excuses or setbacks to put it off for another year.
