PINEHURST – A new year traditionally is a time for new beginnings. The opportunity to start fresh gives people a sense of a “new beginning” and a chance to make a New Year’s resolution.
Each year, top resolutions typically seem to include the desire to lose weight, quit smoking and to spend more time with family.
However, resolution statistics are bleak. According to StatisticsBleak.com, only 8 percent of people who make New Year’s resolutions stick to them, and those who don’t usually abandon them after just one week. Also, men are more successful at keeping resolutions than women.
Well, women, it’s time for that to change.
FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital is offering a “New Year, New Beginnings” Women’s Series to take place on Tuesday, Jan. 14 at the Clara McLean House in Pinehurst.
The panel-style discussion will be led by a moderator, and feature advice and helpful tips on topics such as losing weight, eating healthy, quitting tobacco and starting a new family.
“The new year is an exciting time to evaluate changes you want to make in your life,” says Kari Garbark, program manager at the Center for Health & Fitness – Pinehurst. “Getting healthy is usually among the top three most common resolutions. We will teach you how to incorporate physical activity and proper nutrition into your daily lifestyle by creating a healthy new routine.”
The event is one of five monthly educational sessions designed just for women and sponsored by the Moore Regional Hospital Auxiliary.
Upcoming sessions include:
- Know Your Numbers: Tuesday, Feb. 11
- Spring Cleaning: Tuesday, March 13
- Back in the Game: Tuesday, April 8
The series is free and open to the public. Each session will be held at the Clara McLean House, 20 FirstVillage Drive, Pinehurst. For more information, or to register, call (800)213-3284.
