(NewsUSA) - With every ball that is dropped at midnight comes New Year's Resolutions. Many people with health-focused resolutions start logging hours on the treadmill or swapping soda for water. While these are worthy steps, they can be difficult to maintain over time, leaving you short of your goals. In fact, more than half of the people who make resolutions will break them in less than six months.

Here are a few tips to meet and keep your health goals: set personalized and achievable milestones, incentivize yourself, and get rewarded for your progress. Programs like Go365, a wellness and rewards program by Humana, make getting and staying healthy fun.

Go365, launching Jan. 1, 2017, motivates members to make positive lifestyle changes by tracking simple wellness achievements. Members are able to choose their level of engagement and participate in personalized activities tailored to their specific health needs and interests.

When they reach a goal, like running a 5K or starting a yoga class, they get rewarded. Go365 awards its members "Bucks" that can be redeemed for items like gift cards, movie tickets, and fitness devices. The program is designed for everyone, so members can benefit whether they are training for a marathon or just getting off the couch.

"We want members to stay engaged in their health, and wellness programs, such as Go365, make it easier to start with healthy activities each and every day," says Joe Woods, Chief Executive Officer of Go365. "Go365's special features make healthy choices and working toward personal health goals rewarding."

Go365 is available with most Humana Medicare Advantage plans and Humana's commercial insurance, and employer groups can even purchase it as a stand-alone wellness program. Ask your employer to explore Humana programs, and you could reap the benefits.
