Healthy Goals for 2017

It’s that time of year when we all like to make resolutions or set goals for the New Year.  Here are some great ideas to improve your health in 2017

·         Get more exercise: 30-60 minutes per day including aerobic activity, weight training and stretching.

·         Eat more fruits and vegetables: 5-9 servings per days of these yummy foods.

·         Eat healthy fats:  foods high in Omega 3 fatty acids like olives, avocados, coconut, salmon and olive oil

·         Eat whole grains and complex carbohydrates – 3 servings of things like brown rice, oatmeal and multigrain/seed breads.

·         Learn to relax: practice deep breathing, yoga or meditation

·         Stop smoking.

·         Limit alcohol intake: 1 glass of wine for women or 2 for a man can improve your health, more can have negative consequences.

·         Get adequate rest: minimum of 7-8 hours per night.

·         Achieve/Maintain a healthy weight:  a BMI (body mass index) less than 25 for both men and women.

·         Choose Happiness: a positive attitude makes everything possible!
