New Year's Resolutions

It’s that time of year when we all sit down and think about what we want to accomplish in 2021. Most people make new year’s resolutions that they are not able to stick to. For example, a lot of people will buy gym memberships this month, with the goal of losing weight and then after 6 or 8 weeks, they will cancel them or just stop going. There are multiple reasons as to why this can occur. Watch Dr. Minkoff discuss New Year’s Resolutions in this vide.
