By Virginia Laird
Figuring out the best way to start getting healthy has much to do with the choices you make and the dedication you have to your overall well-being. While it can be overwhelming to decide where to begin, health and wellness professionals advise that keeping your goals simple and few might be the best way to ensure some success when trying to accomplish great change. These experts have offered several tips to help you begin your journey to a healthier lifestyle. A few of their tips include:
- Limit your soda consumption
- Take a vacation this year
- Consider reducing your carb consumption
Limit Your Soda Consumption
As a lover of soda, I know the struggle it can be to completely give it the boot from your daily diet. However, looking at the facts, I can see how bad it can be to constantly consume it. For starters, regular soda is loaded with sugar that can contribute to weight gain. Diet soda, on the other hand, while lacking in sugar is loaded with harmful chemicals which has been linked to a variety of health issues. As you take on 2019 and beyond, consider giving up soda as one of your resolutions.
Take a Vacation This Year
As you decide upon which goals you set for you and your family this year, health and wellness experts suggest that you consider including a family vacation. A vacation can help to reduce stress. As you begin to plan for 2019, visit with your family on a vacation which all can enjoy. Make sure you set aside time to enjoy your vacation sans work, phones, and all other distractions. You may find your stress almost disappears as you get away for a few days.
Consider Reducing Your Carb Consumption
Oh, for the love of carbs! Why is it that all things tasty seem to be loaded with carbs? Health and wellness experts suggest that to be successful in weight loss it is necessary to reduce your carb consumption. This means to decrease your consumption of bread, cereal, cinnamon rolls, cakes, etc. These are the calories that the body stores, leading to weight gain. If you are looking to start your 2019 off in the right direction, it is best to let go of some of these carbs.
With this advice you are ready to start taking control of your health and wellness. Good luck!
