What does being healthy mean to you?

Being healthy is not plain and simple; there’s no one-size-fits-all approach. It is a combined effect of so many different aspects, like eating right, staying active, maintaining a healthy body weight, drinking alcohol in moderation or not at all, not smoking, having annual checkups with a physician, being disease-free, and managing stress at healthy way. If you are missing any of the above healthy habits, you may have room to improve. And, vice versa, if you have been following any or all of these healthy habits you’re already on track to living a healthy life. Healthy lifestyle checklists can be very long and a little intimidating. Being healthy doesn’t mean just checking off every tip you read on every blog. It means your own self-assessment to see where you are in your health and what small changes you would like to make to be a little healthier in 2018.
For example, I eat right but exercise is not my thing, fully knowing that regular physical activity is very important aspect of being healthy. My personal health and wellness goal for the new year is to be more regular on my physical activity along with eating right. To meet that goal, I have purchased an exercise machine that I plan to keep in my basement and plan on using it every morning prior to going to work. I am not necessarily looking to lose weight but to tone up my body a little and benefit from daily exercise to prevent from future obesity, diabetes, heart disease and other health conditions.
Smaller and easily obtainable goals are far easier to follow then just general goals of “doing better overall.” Make sure to be honest with yourself on what works for you and your lifestyle, and make goals tangible enough that you feel like you’re working toward something real. We would love to hear your personal health and wellness goals for the next year and what you have planned to meet that goal!
