You may also want to add antioxidants to your diet to help fight cancer, inflammation and heart disease. Potatoes, beans, cherries, apples, plums, and even chocolate contain antioxidants. Yum!
Toss out the white bread and pasta and switch to whole grain breads, pasta, rice and cereals. Along with assisting with weight management, whole grains help reduce the risk of stroke, type 2 diabetes, colorectal cancer, and high blood pressure as well as other health issues.
And, of course, increase your intake of fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables provide us with all those necessary vitamins and minerals our bodies need to function and look their best.
ALWAYS wear sunscreen. Over time, the sun’s harmful rays cause wrinkles, blotchiness, brown spots, and yes, skin cancer. Do yourself a favor and commit to wearing sunscreen every time you step outdoors. Your soft, supple, blemish-free skin will thank you!
Reserve some ME time. We are constantly on the go with work and family. Our lives are so busy. It’s easy to become overwhelmed and exhausted. Your most important New Year’s Resolution must be to take care of yourself. Go ahead and reserve some time to relax and unwind at the spa. Commit to treating yourself the way you deserve to be treated.
You don’t have to dread making New Year’s Resolutions in 2014. Commit to these sensible, realistic resolutions and enjoy a safe, healthy, prosperous New Year!
P.S. You can always consult with a wellness coach to help you create a wellness program just for you! (Insert if your spa offers wellness)
