How Long Will Your New Year’s Resolution Last?

New Year's ResolutionsBy now most of us have already broken our New Year’s resolutions … whatever they are.  According to those who track these things, January 12th is the day most people ditch the resolutions.  And according to other sources approximately 80% of resolutions fail by the second week of February. 

So for the 65% of us that make New Year’s resolutions, our track record of sticking with them is not very good.  In the end only about 9% of us actually keep them.

Biometric Testing Can Help

For those of us who make resolutions to improve our health there are things we can do to help keep us on track.  One of those is regularly doing some level of biometric testing.  By measuring key health indicators, we can monitor the success of our healthy lifestyle changes and stay motivated throughout the year to stick with our programs.

Biometric Testing Measures

  • Height
  • Weight
  • Blood Pressure
  • Waist Measurement
  • Body Mass Index
  • Body Fat Percentage
  • Full Lipid Panel
  • Glucose Level

Where to Go For Biometric Testing

Many employers, as part of their wellness programs, offer biometric screening. They recognize that having a healthier workforce reduces overall health plan costs.  So take advantage of this benefit.  Also when you get your annual physical your doctor will do a complete screening of your biometrics.

For those who wish to track their progress and need periodic biometric testing done, Blackbird Clinical Services charges just $30 to do biometric tests. These include height, weight, body mass index, blood pressure, blood glucose, cholesterol and aerobic fitness.
