When it comes to New Year’s resolutions, health is always in the spotlight. After all, America’s most common (and most commonly broken) resolution each year is weight loss. But what about the other aspects of your health? There’s a lot more to your overall wellness than a number on a scale. Here’s how you can make 2015 your healthiest year yet.
- Give up smoking: If you’ve tried and failed before, don’t let another year go by without beating the habit. Smoking not only puts you at risk for serious diseases (hello, cancer), but it’ll also keep you (far, far away) from that beautiful white smile.
- Pay off some debt: Don’t think your debt is affecting your health? Think again. The stress of your finances may be causing you health risks you never considered. Get on top of it this year by paying down (or paying off) unnecessary debt.
- See your dentist regularly: If you didn’t make it to your dentist at least twice last year for cleanings and exams, do your teeth a solid and make that a priority in 2015. A clean, healthy mouth is a happy mouth.
- Shop for produce: Forget the center of the center aisles of the grocery store; spend more time in 2015 in the produce section. Choose in-season, local foods full of fiber, vitamins and fresh flavor.
- Learn to cook healthy food: Eating out can take a toll on your pocket book and your waistband. This year, resolve to learn a few easy, delicious and healthy meals you can whip up in a hurry – then actually do it!
- Do something you’ve been putting off: Whether that means cleaning out your storage unit or seeing Mt. Everest, make this year your year to check something off your procrastination list – accomplishment is great for your health.
