How do we become "Healthier" in this New Year?


Well . . . as I stated last week . . . the success of a "New Year's Resolution" . . . really "ISN'T" about the "GOAL" . . . but rather . . . the "GAME PLAN" to get there!


And with this new year . . . "dragging" its baggage from "last" year . . .


The question for today is this . . . HOW DO WE "CHANGE" OUR DIRECTION???


Well . . . the #1 "New Year's Resolution" and "wish" for most of us is . . . a "healthier" body and mind.


And what "goals" you set . . . what "game plan" you have . . . and what "action" you take . . . will either "make" or "break" your journey to a "healthier YOU"!


Okay . . . so first . . . let's "define" our "goals" . . .


You see . . . "wellness" in commonly viewed as having 7 dimensions . . .


Mental

Physical

Social

Financial

Spiritual

Environmental

And vocational


And setting a REALISTIC "game plan" to accomplish that goal . . . is the "KEY" to success!


Now . . . the "KEY" element to a healthier body is this . . .


A "balanced" life . . . which consists of . . .


Appropriate eating habits . . . eating a well-balanced, anti-inflammatory diet

Sufficient rest . . . sleeping at least 8 hour per night

And regular exercise . . . being physically active for 30 minutes most days of the week


And with that . . . it's important to maintain a "healthy triangle" . . . which is . . .


Physical health - our body's ability to function normally

Mental health - our ability to manage thoughts, emotions and behavior

Social health - our relationships and how we communicate with those around us


Okay . . . so we all know about the "standard" weight loss, healthy body and mind tips for this time of year . . . such as . . .


Base your meals on higher fiber foods

Eat lots of fruits and vegetables

Eat more wild caught fish
