Happy New Year From All Of Us at Ruth Mercier Insurance Agency!2017 is just beginning and we want to help you start the year as healthy as possible. With all the changes in healthcare it is very important to maintain your health. We thought it would be good to identify a few things you can do now to help you manage your health. You don’t have to make all these changes immediately, but if you work on one each week you will start setting positive patterns for your health. Even doing a few small things can have a positive impact on your health and attitude.
- Make sure you schedule your annual checkup now!
- Try to exercise at least three times per week. Endorphins are magical. When you exercise, your brain releases the feel-good chemicals, giving you an instant mood boost. Additionally, try to take your workout outdoors.
- You can let your body guide you, selecting the fresh fruits and vegetables, grass-fed meats, and raw milk cheeses that appeal to you most.
- Drink more water.
- Eliminate processed foods from your meals.
- Understand your individual health and body type. Buy a Fitbit or other device and start to track your exercise results.
- Pay off debt. Studies show that financial stress can lead to mental health issues
- Try to get 8 hours of sleep every night. If you are getting less sleep every night than the recommended seven or eight hours, try this recipe for a week; turn off your devices, squash the lights, and go to bed an hour earlier. See what a difference it can make.
