Blue Shield of California Director of Behavioral Health Dr. Nicole Stelter was recently interviewed by two California radio stations about the psychology behind making New Year Resolutions, and tips on how to keep them going throughout 2023.

The advice is a follow-up to Dr. Stelter’s recent blog post on the subject, titled Three Tips for Maintaining Your Resolutions All Year Long.

Here’s an excerpt from her recent interview with Jennifer Jones Lee, host of Wake Up Call on KFI Radio in Los Angeles:

“Sometimes the goals we are setting …. we need to kind of make them realistic. Do you have 30 minutes every day, five days a week in a row?  Sometimes that works. Sometimes you have to take something off of your plate if you’re going add something on, especially if we’re talking about finding more time on our calendars. Making it more realistic makes it more likely to succeed.”
