Christmas arrives in less than four days, with New Year's fast approaching – have you come up with your resolution yet?
Many people take a health and wellbeing-related approach to their goals for the year, with some opting to quit smoking, others determined to eat healthier and others still wanting to get more active and join the gym.
If your New Year's resolution is aimed at improving your health, then you might want to consider getting you and your family set up with Australian health insurance.
Private health cover can help to ensure that you and your loved ones get the appropriate treatment and care for your medical needs.
The Victorian Health Promotion Foundation (VicHealth) has suggested people take a different approach to New Year's resolutions, putting a 'positive focus' on health in 2013.
VicHealth chief executive Jerril Rechter said the way people frame their resolutions can be far too negative which may be why many fail.
"What if we change the language so we highlight the positives that might come from our resolutions?," Ms Rechter said.
"The new year is an opportunity to take stock and think about how making simple changes to our routines might put us on track to health and wellbeing that will last a lifetime."
