Happy New Year: time to set new goals!

With the New Year often comes time for reflection on the year past and setting goals for the year ahead.  Goals that involve health are always important.  So often we put other’s needs before our own and as a result, our own health suffers.  Here are some ideas to consider for your own goals for 2020:
  • Eat fresh non-processed foods with low sugar content
  • Drink plenty of water daily (often start with full 8 oz glasses right after you get up to start your day and continue to carry a water bottle with you, drinking often)
  • Keep moving; regardless of limited mobility (we’re happy to help with ideas), 150 minutes/week of exercise is so important for overall well being (hot pools, mall walking in the cold weather, chair fitness are all options)
  • Spend time with people that make you feel good; human contact and socialization are vital
  • Get plenty of rest; 7-8 hours of sleep is important in reducing body stress, repairing tissue, decreasing pain, improving mood, and energy to name a few

We wish you all the best in the new decade!
