If you're like me, you set goals every year around the beginning of the year. Let's be honest, we all want to be healthy. But sometimes it is hard to accomplish everything you set out on the goal list. Many people give up easily or only try for a couple of weeks or months, then quit.

It's not just about exercise or eating healthy food. It is important to set a practical approach to ensure that the goal’s are being followed. That's why I came up with my Top 10 daily health goals for 2023. Here you go:
