Stick to your New Year’s Resolutions in 2014! (Part 1 of 2)

Time for something newYou’ve probably made numerous New Year’s resolutions in the past that have gone unfulfilled.  Haven’t we all?  For some reason, at the beginning of each year, we make these unrealistic resolutions to better ourselves only to end up disappointed and depressed when we aren’t successful.  Don’t do that in 2014.  Don’t resolve to lose ridiculous amounts of weight in an unhealthy attempt for perfection.  Instead, seek more realistic goals that lead to a healthier, more peaceful life.  Try these New Year’s resolutions for a healthier, happier you!

Get Moving.  Incorporate activities into your day that keep you in motion. Strive for 30 minutes of activity each day.  You can take a walk, ride your bike, or even join in a game of softball in the backyard with the family.  Take the stairs and avoid the elevator.  Park in that one space at work no one else wants—the one farthest from the front door.  Mix it up and keep it fun!  You’ll feel great doing it and it won’t be long before you notice the results.

Tweak your diet.  Make small, yet meaningful changes to your diet.  Reduce sodium intake by opting for low or no-sodium foods. Sodium contributes to high blood pressure and causes that familiar, uncomfortable bloating we have all experienced.
