Once again, it's the time of year that we make goals to improve our health.
Healthy choices for our overall health are not always easy, so start simple.
Set goals that are easy to achieve and maintain.
While diet is the key to getting the best vitamins and minerals, many of us do not always make healthy choices. Start by replacing the chip and cookie snacks with fruits and nuts. Chew your food well. This will help tremendously with your digestion, and you will eat less!
Many of us lead very sedentary lives, so it’s important to add movement to your day. Take a walk, play catch with the dog, sweep the floor. Start slow and build to 30 to 60 minutes of activity per day.
Just as important as exercise is relaxation and restful sleep. Make time for quiet time. Turn your phone off, listen to music, study, pray, or meditate; whatever works best for you to relax.
Develop an attitude of gratitude. Think of 3 things you're grateful for in your life each day. Smile, promote a sense of humor; laugh, hum or sing a happy song every day. Remember, good relationships are vital for our well-being! We wish you well!
