With 2016 about to begin, it's time to set New Year's health goals. For many people, this means losing weight and living a healthier lifestyle. Here are expert tips from Clifford Hospital to help you stay on track with healthier habits.

1.Make S.M.A.R.T goals

Goals boost self-esteem, confidence and belief in your ability to make things happen and feel in control. There are five criteria for your goals. They should be specific (S), measurable (M), achievable (A), realistic (R), and time-bound (T).

2.Eat healthily

Simply start by replacing unhealthy snacks with alternative choices, such as almonds, yogurt and dried fruits. Then try to include more colors in your diet because different colors in fruit and vegetables represent different nutrients for your body. Don’t skip meals, especially breakfast, or it will make you crave higher calorie foods.

3.Get enough sleep

Adequate sleep is a key part of a healthy lifestyle. You will feel happier and more productive if you get enough sleep.

4.Get regular exercise

In order to build a healthy body, you need to incorporate exercise into your life. Pick an exercise routine (e.g. swimming, cycling, jogging, badminton, or tennis) that you can stick with.

5. Schedule annual health checkups

Getting a yearly checkup is a good way to stay healthy and prevent disease. The type of health checkup needed depends on many personal factors (age, medical history, lifestyle, etc.).
