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

Cut down on saturated fats

Eliminate sugar foods

Consume less salt and salty foods

Drink more water

Don't skip meals, especially breakfast (unless you're doing an intermittent fasting)

And get active


But . . . did you know that simple things like . . .


Regular exercise, meditation and breathing techniques

Going to bed "earlier"

Checking your "posture"

And doing a crossword puzzle . . .


Can also help us to focus on our "goals"???

Well . . . tomorrow let's talk about one of the "BIGGEST" reasons we "fail" at our "New Year's Resolution" of losing weight and being healthier in body and mind.
