Are You One of the 9%?

January 21, 2024

OK, it’s three weeks into the new year. Did you make any New Year’s resolutions, and if so, how are you doing with them?

If you made resolutions, where are you on the frown smile scale?

Most of us unfortunately are on the declining frown face side of the graph.

Only 9% of Americans make resolutions and keep them. 23% quit by the end of the first week. 43% more quit by the end of January. There is actually a “Quitters Day”, January 17 every year, when over half our resolutions collectively have vaporized.

What, according to USA Today this month, are the eight most popular American resolutions, in order?

  1. Exercise more
  2. Eat healthier
  3. Lose weight
  4. Save more money
  5. Spend more time with friends and family
  6. Spend less time on social media
  7. Reduce job stress
  8. Reduce spending on living expenses



And what two resolutions are abandoned first for most of us by Quitters Day?

Exercise more and eat healthier.

Just sayin’. Most of us need help maintaining healthy bodies year-round.

When Ozempic becomes as commonplace as orthodontia, a lot of us will be happy with our thinness. But without exercise and whole food nutrition, thinness will be like an M&M….solid on the outside but soft underneath.

Don’t Just Focus on 2024, How about a Lifetime Health Resolution

By this time, most all of you have heard of the BEMER microcirculation device.

We made a resolution seven years ago this month to commit to the BEMER and regularly use it.

We have used our BEMER practically daily at home and even when we are out of our routine and traveling, both in the car while driving and when visiting others or in hotel rooms and resorts, for business or leisure.

You can multitask while using it, as it is a passive tool that works for you in the background, even while sleeping.

This was one resolution that easily carried over from 2017 to subsequent years and promises to extend for years to come.

If you don’t recall any past sharing about the device, click on the logo above and get a full understanding of what it is and how it contributes to better health.



Start to Use the Right Onion in 2024

Sweet Onion: It’s best for onion rings, gratins, roasted vegetables, and frying.

Red Onion: It’s best for eating raw, making guacamole, salads, and sandwiches.

White Onion: It’s best for salsas, chutneys, and stir-fries: it is the crunchiest onion.

Yellow Onion: It’s best for general cooking, meat roasts, sauces, soups, and stews.

Shallot: It’s best for vinaigrettes, egg casseroles, and garnishes; it is the mildest onion.
