New Year, New Habits
By Donna Stark
The new year is here! Heck, a new decade is here as well, so don't you think it is time to drop the old (and by old, I mean bad) habits you have been carrying around and try something better for yourself? Don't you think it is time to take your foot off the brake and put it on the gas so that you can get to that path of optimal health and wellness a lot faster than you thought?
New Year, New Habits
Maybe it's your career, your diet, your lack of exercise, or that pain in your lower back. Whatever it is, it's the epicenter of your bad habits and the source of your poor health. Knowing that a change is needed isn't enough ... you also need to take action, so take a look at the following suggestions and get started today!
- Stress - Taking time to de-stress every day isn't selfish, it's imperative if you want to improve your overall well-being. So, whether that means you take a walk between meetings, enjoy a cup of tea in the afternoon, or indulge in a good book before bed, find what works best for you and make the time to do it.
- Diet - One of the easiest ways to improve your overall health is to include more whole foods, such as vegetables, fruit, nuts, seeds, grains, lean proteins, and fish into your diet. By doing so, you can significantly increase your intake of vital nutrients, vitamins, and minerals while reducing your risk of serious medical issues at the same time.
- Exercise - Sit less and move more! If you aren't getting at least 30 minutes of exercise every day, you need to get better at incorporating physical activity into your daily routine. Turn your devices off, step outside, find something you are passionate about ... just move.
- Pain - Dealing with pain is never fun, but it is even worse when it impedes your ability to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Don't settle with a life unlived.
