It may be a while until we ring in the new year, however fall is definitely here, and the run up to the holidays always tends to go by so quickly that 2017 will be here before we know it! Of course, a new year always brings with it opportunities to do things differently and create new, better habits, so now is a great time to start thinking about how you want to make 2017 your healthiest, best year yet!
If you usually have only vague resolutions like ‘getting fitter’ or ‘losing weight’, then it can be a good idea to try and think of more specific improvements with goals and targets attached. People tend to be far more motivated to stick to their self improvement and health and fitness plans when there is a clear and attainable goal to work towards.
Here are three ideas for health related New Year’s resolutions you could prepare for now:
Treat That Niggling Health Problem
Most of us, when we get to a certain age, have some annoying health issues we just put up with. Whether it is an annoying skin condition, back pain, an old injury that still hurts, dental pain, insomnia, recurring headaches, or really bad menstrual cramps, it often seems easier to just live with it than to go to a doctor. However, these chronic things that never seem severe or urgent enough to make an appointment for do impact your general wellbeing and quality of life, so it can be a great idea to set a goal for the new year to go and see your doctor about all those minor things you have been tolerating. If you are worried about the cost of medication you might need, you can use a prescription discount code to save a large percentage on the cost of anything your doctor prescribes to help you feel better. Make sure that the pharmacy discount program you’re using is HIPAA compliant, keeping your information secure.
Drink More Water
One of the easiest changes you can make for your health is simply to be better hydrated, and to encourage your family to do the same. The benefits of drinking more water are huge, including weight loss, better mental acuity, more energy, and better digestion, and it doesn’t even cost anything! Try filling up a two liter bottle with water every day and ensuring that you have finished it all by the end of the day. If you are active, then you will need more.
Take Up a Sport or Activity
If you want to get fitter or lose weight, then it can be better to take up a new, fun activity and attach your goals to improving at it rather than to simply losing fat. Being able to run or jog for longer, or getting better at dancing, tennis, yoga or any other sport, is far easier to aim for in a positive way, and the fitness and weight loss will come as a natural side effect.
