A New Year and a New You
By Virginia Laird
It seems this time of year I get the doldrums. I have eaten far too much through the previous holidays and lost all routine of exercise with the laundry list of things to get done for all my holiday gatherings. The only thing that tends to help me out of this state of depression is the excitement of setting resolutions for the new year. Like the majority of people across the nation, my resolutions revolve around health and wellness. A new year, with the right goals, can produce a new you. A few of the things to consider for your resolution list include:
- Get plenty of sleep regularly
- Exercise routinely
- Consider increasing your vegetable consumption
Get Plenty of Sleep Regularly
Getting enough sleep may be hard to come by on a routine basis. However, it is one of the best things to do which can improve your health and wellness. Sleep experts recommend the average adult should get at least six hours of uninterrupted sleep each night. No matter how difficult it can be to make this happen, it is best for your health, attitude, and energy to prioritize sleep.
Are you ready to start 2018 healthier than last year? A great resolution to encourage an improvement in health and wellness would be to exercise routinely. A few things to try when committing to exercise includes:
- Take a yoga class
- Try a spin class
- Go for a swim
- Tackle boot camp
- Go for a jog
Let routine exercise lead the path to a healthier throughout the year.
Consider Increasing Your Vegetable Consumption
Like millions of others, as the new year rolls into action, you may be considering which resolutions to attach yourself to in order to improve your health. While vegetables may not be everyone’s favorite, increasing your veggie consumption is a great way to improve your health as well as the health of your family. Make sure the majority of the veggies you add to your diet are green. These are the best and offer the most nutrition.
You are now ready to commit to a new you in the new year. Keep in mind that the first couple of weeks can be the most difficult. However, if you can find the drive to stick to it, you will be successful. May 2018 be the healthiest yet!
