Getting Healthier in the New Year
The New Year is almost here. Have you made your resolutions yet? Some people resist making resolutions because they haven’t had success with their goals in past years. One effective way to keep your resolutions this year is to focus on becoming the person you want to be, rather than doing things that seem burdensome to you. Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center in Las Vegas is proud to be your partner in wellness.
Be a Non-Smoker
Quitting smoking is a worthy New Year’s resolution that will improve your health and quality of life in so many ways. Try not to focus too much on the process of quitting, although you might consider talking about smoking cessation methods with a physician. Devote your energy to imagining yourself as a non-smoker and becoming that person. As a non-smoker, your teeth can stay white, your clothes won’t smell of smoke, you’ll have more money in your pocket, and you won’t feel short of breath when doing basic physical activities. All of these benefits can serve as powerful motivation to become a non-smoker.
Be a Healthy Eater
Have you ever noticed how healthy eaters seem to have plenty of energy to spare? If you’ve been feeling worn out lately, reinvigorate your life by becoming a healthy eater. Healthy eaters look for opportunities to give their bodies the right balance of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and other important nutrients. Sugary treats can be an occasional indulgence in limited portions, but you’ll find that the longer you abstain from excess sugar, the less you’ll crave unhealthy foods.
Chronic fatigue and sleep deprivation can make a normally cheerful person irritable, cranky, and even prone to accidents. Instead of trying to cut your sleep short to get more work done, become a person who values sleep. When you’re well-rested, you’ll be more productive.
