Every January, millions of Americans make resolutions in hopes of bettering themselves for the new year. But how many of those goals are achieved? While nearly half the population makes a resolution, only 8 percent of those actually accomplish it, according to research.
Joining the go-getters isn't impossible – it's all about mind over matter. When you make your overall health your No. 1 priority, it'll be less of a challenge and more of a natural lifestyle change.
"It's all about mind over matter."
Let God be your guidance to complete one – or all – of the following New Year's resolutions:
Save Your Money
According to what Rev. George Malkmus shared in his book "God's Original Diet," 90 percent of the money Americans spend on meals goes to unhealthy processed foods. If you want to save money and make your health a top priority, stop throwing dollars at big businesses and start buying unprocessed food ingredients from local food sources and learn to prepare more of your own food.
Follow a Plant-Based Diet
You know that eating manufactured, processed foods takes a toll on your overall health, but so do a number of the other items you're consuming. You see, when God created man, he built the body with the intention of fueling it with only the natural substance from the earth: not meats, dairy products or eggs, so consider eliminating these foods from your diet.

Drink Freshly Extracted Vegetable Juice Every Day
Once you've eliminated the unhealthy "food" sources from your eating habits and you've switched to a raw diet, we suggest drinking freshly extracted vegetable juice every day. By pulverizing fresh veggies, you'll absorb optimal nutrient content. It's a healthy and satisfying choice for breakfast, but it can also make an excellent snack throughout the day.
We hope you consider some of our suggestions to start your year off on the right track. Tune in next week for more recommendations.
