Hollywood Life Coach Sherri Ziff Lester Says Small Steps Are Key to Gradual

New Year's Resolution Success

FORT WASHINGTON, Pa., Jan. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- On January 1, most Americans pledged to lose weight, quit smoking or eat healthier for the next 365 days. For the past week, gyms have been packed, the air smelled cleaner and there seemed to be a shortage of fresh fruit and veggies at grocery stores, but now that the champagne is flat many are abandoning their New Year's resolutions. This month, Hollywood life coach Sherri Ziff Lester of RockYourLifeCoaching, is speaking out to educate Americans about how small, sustainable "mini resolutions" can help make positive changes that will last through the entire year.

"Many people set themselves up for failure by setting life goals that are too broad or aggressive to be realistically accomplishable," said Ziff Lester. "I have found that the easiest and most effective way to achieve your resolution is to break it down into a small, specific goal you can reasonably expect to attain.

"If you want to eat healthier, for example, don't deprive yourself of sweets. Instead, reduce calories by substituting SPLENDA(R) Sweetener Products for sugar. If people start off small, they eventually see small improvements that motivate them to move forward with loftier goals."

Small Changes Yield Big Results

Additionally, Ziff Lester notes that small resolutions mean making small, simple changes which are easier to incorporate and maintain in any lifestyle. Ziff Lester offers the following tips to help consumers create realistic goals that will stick year-round:

-- Vowing to spend more time with your friends and family? Rather than

focusing on an entire evening out, nurture relationships with short

bursts. Try a 20 minute coffee date, meet at the grocery store to shop

together or arrive five minutes early to pick your kids up from school

and chat.

-- If your resolution is to eat healthier, start with something you can

easily change. Make a "mini resolution" to reduce sugar throughout the

day by stocking your purse with new SPLENDA(R) No Calorie Sweetener

Minis -- not only are they convenient, but they add guilt-free

sweetness to coffee or tea.

-- Trying to get rid of all that clutter in your life? Don't take on the

whole house; focus on just one drawer or congested corner. Identify at

least five things you can part with and put them in your car to take to

the nearest charity next time you run errands.

-- If you want to get out of debt, don't commit to a large sum of money

you hope to pay throughout the year. Start small by developing a

budget plan at the beginning of each month, which details your spending

and saving habits for that 30-day period.

-- If getting fit is a goal for 2008, don't vow to hit the gym seven days

a week. Start small by signing up for a once-a-week exercise class.

The time commitment is more manageable and the class schedule will hold

you accountable.
