How many of Your New Year’s resolutions have already lapsed, or been missed, forgotten or just plain ignored thinking you’ll start tomorrow…?
Stressed or depressed by this yet? So, maybe this year to stay healthy go without resolutions and stick to the things your mama likely told you.
Eat healthy. Eating a healthy diet doesn’t have to be complicated. A book like “What to Eat When: A Strategic Plan to Improve Your Health and Life through Food” by Roizen et.al. may be a good start. Replace processed food with real food whenever is possible. Eating food that is as close as possible to the way nature made it can make a huge difference to the way you think, look and feel.
Exercise. Exercise helps control your weight, it reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and some cancers; it strengthens your bones and improves your mental health and mood. Even short walks with friends can improve your mood and health.
Rest. In our wired 24/7 world we are all sleep deprived and risking our well being. Learning to rest –meditation; self-hypnosis, disconnecting regularly, etc. is crucial to maintaining our sanity and physical health.
Me time in the out of doors. In Japan they call it forest therapy. Returning to nature to recharge and rejuvenate is the same as disconnecting from our wired world by taking the time to return to our roots…literally. We developed in the natural world and should reconnect whenever possible.
Preventive maintenance visits to your doctor and dentist is a very important thing to do if you want to stay healthy and have beautiful smile.
Stay Happy and Healthy !
