Prati Italia

Every year, millions of Americans make New Year’s resolutions to improve their lives. But, according to the St. Leo University Polling Institute, resolutions for 2022 are health-centric with a heavy emphasis on weight loss and exercising more.

Guest: Christopher Wolfe, professor of psychology at St. Leo University.

Making sustainable change

Up to 80% of resolutions fail by February, but many people cannot afford to fail when health is at stake. Exercise and eating well are foundational to long-term health, so we called in the experts to give you their best tips to create sustainable change.


Dry January

St. Leo Polling Institute found that “drinking less alcohol” made it to the Top 15 New Year's resolutions both here in Florida and nationally.

This often leads to the phenomenon of “Dry January,” which is a popular challenge for sober-curious folks interested in trying a month without booze.

Wildcrafters is an alcohol-free bar in Jacksonville that caters to sober and sober-curious folks year-round.

Guest: Yhang Quintero, Wildcrafters owner.
