So, how are the resolutions holding together?

It’s not easy when the long dark month of January marches on, and life can easily get in the way of any well-considered New Year's resolutions that you may have…or indeed by now had!

One in five of us planned to make a resolution this year (2023), up from one in seven last year. The younger you are, the more likely you are to make a resolution, with the over 55's rather letting the side down (only 1 in 9 making a resolution). The usual candidates (weight loss and exercise) are in the top five, and the whole list (from the YouGov website) can be found in the following link (some interesting stats!):

Of course, some take the easier option and with less daylight, tend to hide behind the curtains and not take much exercise, especially when it’s cold outside. Or to be a weekend fitness fanatic, grabbing the daylight hours on a Saturday and Sunday to dash round a park or similar to keep the body in check. In addition, and perhaps as part of a resolution, something (usually alcohol) might be given up for the month of January as a recompense for the month before. After all, we are all different, but we hope it’s going well whatever you agreed with yourself or others.

Whatever choices you make, ensure that your body is in tune with your plans and perhaps exertions. Careful warming-up for exercise and activity might be key during these colder months to staying on track with you planned fitness. Muscular strains and skeletal problems are very common for those whose exercise pattern might be disrupted from the norm. Perhaps then it’s time to change your new year’s resolutions to ‘physio-lutions’, by being in regular contact with your physiotherapist to deal with any aches and pains before they become significant. Prevention is invariably better than the alternative and many readers will know that a series of physiotherapy sessions is usually recommended to deal with any physical issues at hand.

Whatever your plans are for the year ahead, we hope that 2023 is successful, happy and healthy for you.
