Success Through Wellness

Wishing you a Health 2016

Thinking about ways to become healthier in the new year?

Consider these attainable goals:

  • Make healthy food choices. Grab healthy snacks such as fruit, nuts, or low-fat cheese.
  • Exercise regularly – just 30 minutes of exercise on most days of the week can help improve your overall health.
  • Commit to getting 7-8 hours of sleep each night. Even one night of sleep deprivation can impact your mood, energy, and stress levels for days! -
  • Identify healthy ways of coping with stressful or overwhelming situations. Try exercising, taking a walk, playing or listening to music, or expressing yourself artistically.
  • Be smokefree. If you are ready to quit, call 1-800-QUIT-NOW for resources and support.
  • Apply sunscreen whenever you are heading out to enjoy the great outdoors.
  • Wear a helmet when you are skiing, snowboarding, or biking.
  • Make an appointment for your yearly check-up.
  • Visit the HCC to find health resources that can help you achieve your goals!
