Staying Fit Doesn’t Require Resolutions
By this time each year, most people have already failed to keep the New Year’s resolutions they made. But whether you made – or kept – your resolutions you can incorporate new habits this year that will help you stay fit.
Get More Sleep
Lack of sleep contributes to so many health concerns that just changing this one habit can have long-term ramifications on your health. Poor sleep habits contribute to obesity, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes. Make it a goal to get 7-9 hours of sleep each night.
Drink More Water
Did you know that your body will give off a hunger signal when it’s actually thirsty? Our brains can’t distinguish between the two, but drinking more water not only keeps you hydrated and improves the health of your skin but also aids in digestion and keeps you from overeating.
Choose More Fruits and Veggies
Dark green leafy veggies, rainbows of fruits, broccoli and cauliflower do more for you than just add color. Rich in vitamins and antioxidants, fruits and vegetables are the superheroes of nutrition.
Go Ahead and Indulge Yourself
It’s about balance, so go ahead and have the extra slice of pizza you’ve been craving. It’s ok to treat yourself occasionally and enjoy moments, especially when you’re sharing time with friends.
Skip the Soda
The average soda has 45 grams or more of sugar. The average daily allowance for sugar for women is 25 grams and for men is 37.5 grams. Simply cutting out soda can improve your health significantly and help you achieve your fitness goals.
