New Year, New You? Why Waiting for January Could Set You Back

After all, January 1st seems like the perfect clean slate for all our health ambitions, right? Not quite. If you’re considering a break until the New Year, you may be setting yourself up for a tougher climb back to where you are now. Here’s why maintaining your health regimen through the holiday season is not just good for your body, but also for your spirit, and can set you apart from the crowd when the New Year’s resolutions rush begins.

Why This Is The BEST Time To Start At Catalyst
