Last week, I had the opportunity to interview Food Network Star, Claire Robinson. If you know me, you know I love chocolate. Well, Claire loves chocolate probably just as much – specifically Dove Dark Chocolate. She was great to talk with and talked a little about New Year’s Resolutions and cooking. Below is the video of my interview with her. Be sure to check it out!
‘Tis the season to make New Year’s resolutions! In fact, approximately 45 percent of Americans make New Year’s resolutions each year, yet 36 percent of those are broken by the end January. While a lot of people who make them do break them, research shows that people who make resolutions are 10 times more likely to attain their goals than people who don’t.
Celebrity chef and Food Network star Claire Robinson offers tips to bloggers on how to make resolutions that you actually want to keep. Some of her tips include:
- GET EDUCATED TO MAKE HEALTHIER CHOICES - A common mistake is that people make drastic decisions (such as instantly turning vegan) that are difficult to keep. In order to make healthy choices last for the long-term, you must make taste a priority.
- GET INVOLVED - Make a commitment to give back to your community, focusing on an organization or project that you feel passionate about to kick off the new year.
- CREATE A BUILT-IN REWARD SYSTEM - To reinforce your long-term health goals, you should implement a built-in system that allows you to celebrate the small victories and keeps you motivated.
