Is there anything more inspirational than the start of a new year? It’s a time to focus on the months ahead and set goals you hope to achieve. As the weeks pass and your busy post-holiday schedule returns to normal, you may find yourself straying from those resolutions you set and wondering how to stay on track. Not to worry; our Publix registered dietitians are here to help. Check out these 10 simple tips to keep it up!

Tip #1:

Take 10 minutes for a quick walk. It’s a great way to take a break, but also has the added benefit of sneaking a little extra activity into your day.

Tip #2:

Make sleep a priority by heading to bed just 30 minutes earlier. Most adults need at least seven hours of sleep per night. Learn more about the relationship between sleep and nutrition here.

Tip #3:

Tip #4:

Step to it! Get some more steps in by parking in the back of the lot at work or the store.

Tip #5:

Tip #6:

Read nutrition labels to help stay on track with your nutrition goals. Check out some tips on reading labels here.

Tip #7:
