January can be hard enough without the pressure of getting fit, going on a diet or turning your whole life upside down.
So why not make some small, manageable changes instead? You'll be surprised at the huge differences you see, and you'll probably find they'll slip easily into your everyday routine.
Become a meal-prepping king
Get a recipe book for Christmas? Grab a cuppa and take half an hour to sit down with it to plan a week of meals. Write down your ingredients into a shopping list, and a daily plan of which meals you'll cook. If you need to defrost anything to make it, set a reminder in your phone the night before so you don't forget. Lost your inspiration? Browse online recipe websites or check out your favourite food bloggers. Why not take it a step further and batch cook your meals ahead, or prepare your lunches for the week so you can grab and go!
Pick up ingredients in Sainsbury's and avoid that last minute panic each evening.
Top tip: Keep each meal plan and shopping list you make until you have a selection to choose from - then take your pick each week to save time and hassle re-planning your meals.
Take the stairs
Remember those tiny changes we said? Set yourself small goals and try and increase your steps each week. Pick up a pedometer or treat yourself to a fitness watch to track how you're doing. It's easy to make some increases every day - take the stairs instead of the lift, get off the bus a stop early, do 20 minutes of hoovering or choose a longer route on the school run or dog walk.

Top tip: Set a timer for 20 minutes and see how much tidying you can get done around the house - you'll be surprised how many steps you rack up while putting things back in the right place, and you'll end up with a tidy house too!
Swap the snacks
There'll be no need for a strict diet. Learn a couple of healthy swaps for your favourite snacks and you'll be on track for a healthier lifestyle.
Love crisps? Try some popcorn popped fresh at home and season with a little salt or cinnamon.
Chocolate fiend? Try dark chocolate rather than milk chocolate - just as sweet and doubly satisfying!
Chip fanatic? Try sweet potato fries instead, and bake them rather than fry. Chop into cubes or slice into chips, spray with a little oil and season with garlic, paprika and pepper. Bake in the oven for 40 minutes for a delicious and high-fibre side.
Top tip: Portion your snacks so you don't overeat. Buy some small plastic re-usable containers and portion out nuts, dried fruit and a few cubes of chocolate for a satisfying afternoon treat.
