6 Healthy New Year Resolutions You Can Keep
Can you believe 2020 is finally over? Now it’s a brand-new year! What comes in 2021? Many people make new year resolutions. Resolutions resemble hope, but it is also pointless without strong-will. Asking yourself how to do you make 2021 your best year ever? It begins with you taking a deeper look at yourself. Resolve to prioritize your well-being this year. We are at Century Medical in Peabody, MA ready to help! Our job is to partner with you to keep you healthy and stop the onset of disease.
Do you know why you need to see a primary care physician if you’re healthy? Blood pressure screening, cholesterol screening, Pap smears, sports physicals, birth control counseling, depression screening, assessing risk factors, exercise and diet counseling and so much more! Preventive medicine is important for your well-being.
Here some healthy resolutions to consider:
Drink more water – It will increase your energy, promote weight loss, flushes out toxins, and improves skin complexion
Get 8 hours of sleep – Insufficient sleep can slow the metabolism, increase calorie storage as fat, and increase your appetite
Eat less sugar – There are a lot of reasons to cut sugar from your diet. Sugar is addicting, can increase inflammation, linked to cancer and heart diseases
Go for a run more frequently – It will make you feel alive, exercise your willpower and help you develop discipline
Be more mindful and positive – A positive outlook keeps you energized and ready to tackle life’s challenges. The most positive changes come from our mindset
Reduce caffeine intake – it will cut your stress. Coffee impacts your hormones
Perhaps it’s been a while since you’ve seen your primary care doctor. I encourage you to give a call for an annual wellness visit. What questions or fears do you have about seeing your PCP? What small or big, achievable wellness goals do you want to get out of 2021?
If you want to improve your well-being, you have to think about it every day of this new year. Re-evaluate yourself constantly and as soon as you see an opportunity to be better, jump on it. Procrastinating is a waste of time and time is precious. Happy 2021! May your heart glow with warmth, happiness, and love this year.
