Don’t set a resolution – do this instead (and with your kiddo)…

Topic: Use Dr. Hoyt's 3-Step Plan to have an Awesome New Year without setting a Resolution.

You don't have to set a resolution to plan for an amazing year.

Resolutions can be, well, overwhelming. They can sometimes lead us to put way too much focus on a really big goal but without us also creating the roadmap for achieving the often over-reaching, non-specific goal.

For example, you may make a resolution to “know more about my kiddo's food allergy.” Well, what does that really mean? And what's your yard-stick? And by when do you want to achieve this?

Overall, resolutions don't set us up to succeed. So I do something else…

So how can you plan for an awesome new year without setting a resolution?

Try Dr. Hoyt's 3-step plan:

  1. Theme your year.
  2. Set SMART goals about food allergies with your kiddo.
  3. Show grace.

A note from Dr. Hoyt

I have talked about a non-profit…

Pam and I volunteer with the non-profit The Teal Schoolhouse. Its primary program is Code Ana. Code Ana equips schools for medical emergencies like anaphylaxis.

Code Ana’s Online Epinephrine Training Program helps support that goal. Through this program, you will educate yourself while you support this important mission!

A medical emergency response plan is important for everyone at any school. Code Ana's program Med-E Ready is a comprehensive approach to school-focused medical preparedness. This program guides schools through the process of creating a medical emergency response plan. A response team is also developed! This is one of the most important components of a school's food allergy policy!

Does your kiddo’s school have Code Ana?

You've just read our post “Don't set a resolution – do this instead (and with your kiddo)…” Remember, Dr. Hoyt is an allergist, but she isn't your allergist, so talk with your allergist about what you've just learned!
