What’s Your ‘New You’ Resolution?


1. a firm decision to do or not do something.

2. the mental state of being resolved or resolute.

At MOBE, we believe in setting goals. After all, that's a big part of the MOBE Guided Self-Management Program. But we don't necessarily use the phrase "New Year Resolution", because we think it focuses on the wrong word.

Change starts with you.

Making changes in behavior can be a daunting task, whether you're trying to quit a bad habit or build your endurance to run a marathon. But the key factor in any successful change isn't the time of year – it's you.

You hold the power to take control of your health by making different decisions. You hold the power to learn about your healthcare options and make decisions about treatments or medications. And your body has the power to do what it's known all along: how to heal and function as it was designed.

You can take steps to take control of your health and the way you feel, any time of year.

In MOBE, our Guides help people discover ways to feel their best, in all sorts of ways. So when it comes to 'New You Resolutions', we help people take steps to achieve all kinds of goals, all year long:

  • Putting on shoes without help.
  • Playing baseball with grandchildren.
  • Helping with the housework.
  • Being able to walk for 20 minutes.
  • Getting a good night's sleep.
  • Finding ways to enjoy more of life, more often.

Celebrate a New You, every day of the year.

You don't have to wait until December 31 to look back and say "I did it." With MOBE, you learn how to make small changes every day, the kind that you can feel good about, knowing that those decisions will add up to something better. And more importantly, knowing that each day can be an achievement on its own.

New Year Resolutions have been around for a while, and they're a great way to restructure priorities or identify habits that need improvement. But this month, we challenge you to take a step back and look at what really matters: the end goal isn’t about creating a new year. It’s about creating a new you.

Who do you want to be? How do you want to think and feel about yourself, your health and your life?

We believe you can achieve it. Welcome to the New You.

The science of pharmaceutical research

Medicine isn’t perfect. For every breakthrough that cures a disease (or makes it easier to live with one) there are many more treatments that only help a little.

So, it’s important to approach any decision that affects your health, or the health of someone you love, with eyes wide open.
