Sometimes, the truth hurts: Most of us will give up on our New Year’s resolutions by Jan. 10. That’s right—just 10 days after making them. But breaking down big goals into smaller steps can help you stick to your health goals this new year:

Losing weight:
If you want to lose X pounds by the end of the year, try setting a weight loss goal for each month—not the entire year.

Exercising more:
Add some steps to your day by taking a morning or lunch walk around your neighborhood. Mix in a few stretch breaks too!

Eating healthy:
If you’re tired of fruit and nuts as a work snack, try Greek yogurt with cinnamon and berries or a cheese stick with cherry tomatoes.
