Hands up who is fed up of winter? Lots of people will be glad to see the back of the cold weather, grey skies and general gloom that winter brings. Once Christmas has been and gone, it’s natural to feel flat. The festive period can be so hectic, and a real roller coaster of emotions. By the end of February, most people’s resolutions have fallen by the wayside. It’s easy to feel down about yourself, especially if you haven’t stuck to the promises you made to yourself at the start of the year. Oh, those darn New Year’s Resolutions. How many people manage to stick to them? Not many, that’s for sure!

and a Health MOT.
Ladies, make sure your smears are up to date. Check your breasts. Get those little aches and pains seen to. As we get older, minor aches and niggles can be precursors to avoidable conditions like sciatica or a frozen shoulder. They’re not going to go away by themselves, so see your doctor. Gents – check your testicles, your chest, make sure your prostate checks are up to date. And then follow the same advice.
Make a Change
Make one change to something you’ve never been happy with. For many people, that’s often their bodies. If you need to get fit, embark on an exercise plan. If you want to lose weight, start committing to a healthier diet. If it’s something physical you can’t change by yourself, there are alternatives. Consultants at newyorkliposuction.com say it’s one of their busiest times of year as people to seek to correct their imperfections.
