2018 is right around the corner. No better time than now to start making your resolutions for a healthier you!
1. Lose Excess Weight
Include nutritious foods in your daily diet, cut back on sugar and other unhealthy foods, and begin working out for at least 30 minutes per day. If you need to lose ten pounds or more, ask our pharmacists about the options available to you.
2. Manage Stress
Work on managing stress better in the moment with immediate calming techniques, such as deep breathing. You can also handle stress better on a regular basis by doing activities that promote a sense of well-being.
3. Spend Time with Others
This can mean having dinner with family members, going out with friends, participating in community events, or signing up for a class at a local school or community center.
4. Improve Your Sleep
Poor sleep quality can contribute to a variety of problems, including a lower immunity to infections, difficulty concentrating, and an increased risk of heart problems and stroke. While getting more sleep is important, making sure you’re getting quality sleep is also crucial.
5. Health Screenings
Have screenings to check your bone density,blood pressure, and other health factors to help determine whether you need to see your doctor for diagnostic tests. If you already have diabetes, you can have screenings done to check your glucose or A1C levels, which helps track how well you’re managing your condition and can alert you to any dangerous spikes or drops.
