1. Quit smoking
We all know the dangers associated with smoking, which is likely why quitting is one of the most popular New Year’s resolutions. However, millions of people around the world still smoke. My first bit of advice? If you’re not ready to quit, don’t let anyone pressure you into attempting it. When you are ready, make sure you have an action plan, and a small army of supporters. You can quit cold turkey, wean yourself gradually, use smoking-cessation products like Nicorette gum, or even get a prescription medication from your doctor, like Chantix. Once you do quit smoking, you’ll notice some benefits right away — more energy, less breathlessness, and more kissing time with your sweetheart!
