Starting your year on a high note!

In our last issue, we talked about getting ready for a healthy new year by making good choices during the holidays.  The notion of resolutions comes into the New Year and usually creating healthier habits is on everyone’s list. Creating success with that is about choosing bite size pieces, changes you can make happen and feel good about it. There are many ways you can create a healthy one for 2018.  Here’s a checklist of 5 healthy changes to launch 2018 as a year of health and wellness:

5 things to change in your life everyday:

1 more cup of veggies- skip the fries and add a salad

2 more glasses of filtered water

Say no to at least 1 processed food (bread, bagels, pizza, crackers, dessert)

Get outside for 10- 15 mins (park your car further from your office or walk around the block)

Pause for 3-5 minutes of quiet and stillness (breathing, meditation, etc.)
 

 

Simply Easy Tip: 

Practice the 4-7-8 breath: Take a couple of breaths in and out. As you next inhale, count to 4, hold your breath for a count of 7 and take a nice long exhale for the count of 8.  Repeat 2-3 times; this can be practiced at a traffic light, in line or before you eat.
