Happy 2016

Wishing everyone a Happy and Healthy 2016!

To wrap up the year, some New Year’s Health Tips:

  • Moderation – in both food and drink will make 2016 easier to start
  • Make a commitment to exercise on January 1 – even a walk will give a sense of accomplishment
  • Dress warm if you will be at an outdoor event – layers and hats
  • If improving your health is part of your plan for 2016, do a set of body measurements – weight and waist circumference – you can’t know how much you improve unless you know where you start
  • Put your exercise commitments into your calendar
  • Don’t do another set of measurements for at least a month – you can see bigger change if you don’t micromanage things
  • Get a physical – baseline your health as well as your size

I’m not making any resolutions this year – but I am setting some goals

  • Exercise more during the work week
  • Unplug from electronics occasionally
  • Write 2 posts a month

What are your goals for 2016?
