Posted on: December 27th, 2012 by BrevardBlogger 6 Comments

As the year 2012 comes to a close, it is a time to reflect upon the last year and everything that took place. However, it is also a time to look forward to the New Year and see what we can improve upon or do better. Millions of Americans make New Year’s resolutions, goals to help improve their life in some way over the course of the next year.

Coming up with healthy New Year’s resolutions isn’t hard, so start adding goals to your blank list!

Most of these resolutions revolve around improving health in some form another, and for good reason. Health and fitness information is widely available. With that in mind, we would like to give you a few ways you can achieve a healthier lifestyle in the coming year.

Lose some weight- it has been proven in study after study that lower weight and body fat percentages are better for overall health. Lower body fat equals a lower risk of stroke or developing heart disease, high blood pressure or diabetes.

Eat better- fresh vegetables, fruits, lean meats and low-fat dairy. Those should be what you eat the most of. If you’re having trouble at the grocery store with temptation, stick to the outside where those four items are located. Only go into aisles for a particular item, don’t cruise.

Exercise on a regular basis- getting your exercise in early in the morning puts you in a better frame of mind for the day, whether it’s walking, biking, swimming or weight lifting. Once you find a time that works best for you, stick with it.

Challenge your mind- you are only as good as your mind, so challenge it daily with Sudoku, word jumbles, memorizing lists or learning a new language. You’ll be surprised how well your brain functions in other parts of your life with a little training.

Whatever your New Year’s resolution is, we hope that you’ll join us at Brevard Medical Supply in working towards living a healthier life. We promise to continue to assist you and your loved ones with your pharmacy or home medical equipment needs into the New Year and beyond!
