Have you ever made a New Year's resolution? Were you able to keep it? If you answered no to that question, you are not alone. According to research, only 8 percent of people achieve their New Year's resolutions each year.
Yet people continue to set these impossible goals for the year ahead. According to Nielson Ratings, about 37 percent of people want to “stay fit and healthy,” and 32 percent want to “lose weight.”

Here are five easy habits that, once you start following, will have a great impact on your overall health and well-being. Tackle one at a time until you've mastered all five.
