Healthy New Decade
We have not only arrived at a new year but a whole new decade, welcome 2010! I’m sure many were more then happy to bid 2009 good riddance and are looking to the teen years of the 21st century to bring us all better luck. There is also plenty we can do to help move our lives into more positive, happier and healthier places this year so that by this time next, we can look back and know that we did our best to make it a great one ; ) Here are a few things that might help kick start the new year on a good note!:
- Do the best you can to adopt healthier eating habits. Food is your medicine and watching what you eat both in portion size as well as what is and isn’t on your plate is the best way to stay healthy. Try to increase your veggie intake on a daily basis as well as whole grains and complete proteins while decreasing your sugar, fat & animal product consumption. Your body will thank you as will the earth!
- Fit in fitness wherever you can. Be it a 20 minute walk after dinner or a dance class a few times a week, find ways to get the blood pumping and it will help you cope with stress and might even be something you look forward to every day. Especially when you make your exercise social like a class our group hike!
