9 Ideas for a Heathy New Years Resolution

Jump into gear this new year with a healthy resolution! Here are a few suggestions to help you get on the path to good health in 2017.

1. Work Out More At Home: You can easily re-create your favorite workout class at home, giving yourself the opportunity to exercise more frequently.

2. Unplug: Give yourself a few hours each week to e-tox (technology detox). Turn off your phone, computer, and television. This can help you regain control and focus on day-to-day life.

3. Eat More Fat: Fish, pasture raised meats, eggs, nut butters and more are full of healthy fats that your body needs. Make a resolution to get more good fats in your diet!

4. Drink More Water: Avoid the detriment of dehydration by drinking enough water each day. Everybody is different, but 64 ounces daily is a good general guideline. Try fruit infused water for a tasty twist!

5. Adopt a Meatless Monday Tradition: One day a week, go all vegetarian. Feel free to ask our staff about healthy meal suggestions at your next appointment!

6. Skip the Processed Foods: Stick to the grocery aisles around the perimeter of the store and steer clear of processed foods.

7. Load Up on Vegetables: Make an effort to fill at least half your plate up with healthy veggies – especially dark leafy greens. Vegetables are full of nutritional benefits and will keep you from eating the parts of dinner that aren’t so good for you.

8. Pay it Forward: Remember that simple acts of kindness can brighten anyone’s day. Make an effort to put smiles on the faces of those around you every day. Hold a door, buy a coffee for the person behind you in line, and spread the love!

9. Grow Your Own Herb Garden: Herbs can compliment almost every healthy dish. Instead of heading to the grocery store for basil, parsley, and your other favorite herbs, grow them organically at home!
