Making New Year’s resolutions is the easy part — keeping those resolutions can be difficult.
According to a 2016 Ipsos poll, 73 per cent Canadians who set a New Year’s resolution will break them. In fact, there’s even a day for it: Friday, January 17, is known as Ditch New Year’s Resolution Day.
Calgary Foothills Primary Care Network can help people keep those resolutions with several free workshops:
- Ask a Dietitian group appointments — Professional advice from a registered dietitian while learning from others who have similar health questions.
- Craving Change — four-week workshop for adults who struggle with problematic eating.
- Happiness Basics — four-week course that teaches you skills to boost your overall happiness.
- Tobacco Cessation — four-week workshop where peer support through group sessions significantly increases your chances to quit smoking.
People can self-register for these free workshops. If anyone has any health concerns about participating, they should consult your family doctor.
Additionally, the PCN offers:
- Prescription to Get Active — an actual prescription a family doctor and can be redeemed at partner recreation centres for a free trial pass. If you don’t have a family doctor you can visit AlbertaFindADoctor.ca
