New Year's resolutions are hard. They're supposed to focus on things that will make you better, right? Or things that you always wanted to do, but never found the time to actually do. Sometimes it seems like every single person's New Year's resolution is to lose weight. But there are many small steps you can take to make a healthier you without trying to commit to significantly dropping pounds. In fact, it's possible to make healthy New Year's resolutions that have nothing to do with losing weight.
