New Year’s Resolutions: How to choose a goal and stick to it

By Maria Walls, ANP-C, CDE

With 2018 right around the corner, we can take this time to reflect on 2017 and brainstorm changes we want to make in the New Year. Resolutions actually started during the Roman times around 153BC. The Roman God Janus had two faces: one that looked back at the previous year and one that looked forward. The New Year was a time to look forward into the New Year and forgive enemies for trouble in the past. 

In the present, it’s a great time to make resolutions that benefit our health! We tend to be more motivated in the New Year. The question is how do we stay committed to these goals?  That’s the difficult part, but there are certain things you can do to help yourself succeed.

BJC Convenient Cares Provide Low Cost, After-Hours Care

Our BJC Medical Group and Boone Medical Group convenient care and weekend clinic locations see a variety of injuries and illnesses every day. From the typical cough, cold and flu symptoms that are rampant this time of year to more serious conditions, our providers are equipped with knowledge and resources to provide care.

Our providers are committed to providing excellent and timely care for their patients. Even when a patient walked into one of our clinics when it was closing for the day, a provider took the time to listen and understand the patient’s needs. This provider started IV fluids and medications to treat the woman’s symptoms and gave the patient’s young daughter a coloring book to put the patient at ease. The provider then stayed with the patient until she was feeling better and able to make it to the pharmacy.
