image I went to my health club today, and it was packed with people getting started early on their New Year’s resolution to improve their health and wellness. Actually, they probably all just feel guilty about the case or two of cookies, sweets and stuffing they had in the last 8 days. Hey, we all do it—including me. I have been paying for it at the gym, trust me.

However, I know that in early February, the club will clear out again, and the regulars will still be there. If this sounds like it could be you, take a simple step to remind yourself once a month to stick with it.

Subscribe to a health, fitness or wellness magazine. Once a month, it will arrive in your mailbox with a picture or some hard body on the cover. Inside, you will find recipes, routines and tips to get healthier. For less than $15 a year, it is an easy way to get a nudge and a refresher once per month. Here are some of the ones I like:

  • Men’s Health
  • Men’s Journal
  • Shape
  • Prevention
  • Self

These are just a few examples, and you can find a more comprehensive listing here.
