So…you might’ve noticed something different about the calendar by now. Hint: the date no longer reads “2015.” (Of course, I can never get my years straight, so if you cashed a check from me recently, just scribble out that “15” part. Sorry, Mom.)
But enough about my haphazard record keeping skills. 2016 has officially taken up residence for the next 52 weeks, which — for most people — signals that dreaded New Year’s Resolution season.
Based on The Journal of Clinical Psychology, about 66% of resolution makers center their goals around fitness and nutrition. However, 73% will soon fall victim to burnout.
The take-away? Don’t become another statistic.
Whether you’re planning a dietary overhaul or just curbing a junk food fetish, Manitoba Harvest has the ideal snack time solution. Your 2016 self-improvement list never tasted more delectable.
