New Year Resolutions For Your Mental Health

New Year resolutions often revolve around exercise and diets, but we can also use this time to boost our psychological well-being and resilience. So what kind of mental health goals can you set - and how can you stick to them?

Targets like exercising more and eating healthily are likely to have a positive impact on your mental health, but there are plenty of other ways to commit to boosting your well-being.

It's never easy to stick to any New Year resolution or goal, but there are steps you can take to stick to them.

Check out this link at Patient for examples of goals to set for the new year!
