Well we are a month into the new year and a mere month ago we were all busy setting goals and resolutions. If you are like most people they are already gone out the window, but if you are like me, you are still working on them. Mine goals were mostly health and fitness related and there are definite small steps that I am making that can help me achieve my goals long term. Healthy choices and active living are so important to me this year.
Still working on your goals or you want to get back on track, here are a few easy steps you can take, to deliver big results:
- Take the stairs: You can take small steps towards a healthier you, literally. Not quite realistic if you work on the 42nd floor, but think escalators at the mall, moving sidewalks at the airport, that errand that’s a two minute drive away…skip all shortcuts and walk! You can also get a pedometer or smartphone fitness app that counts your steps and calories burned so you can measure your results.
- Take your vitamins: Taking your daily vitamins helps ensure you get the nutrients you need to maintain a healthy active lifestyle. However, men and women have varying nutritional needs so multivitamins such as Vitafusion™ Men’s & Women’s Complete Multivitamins offer a personalized option to help you feel great and support optimal health.
- Get your giggle on: Laughter really is the best medicine, not to mention it’s both fun and free. Research shows that humour and laughter strengthens your immune system, boosts your energy, diminishes pain and protects you from the damaging effects of stress.
- Protect your skin: Use sunscreen with an SPF every day to protect yourself against the sun’s harmful rays (UVA & UVB). And yes, even wear it on days when it’s overcast.
Are you still working on your resolutions or are you like me and set goals?
