10 Health Strategies for an Amazing 2017
One - Get your sleep. Just as a healthy diet and regular exercise are necessary and essential for good health, so is sleep. Cutting back on snooze-time can lead to an out-of-control appetite (some studies show that people who sleep less are more likely to be overweight), a greater risk for coronary heart disease and type 2 diabetes. So try to get the recommended eight hours of sleep needed for good health, safety, and optimum performance. Two - Rise and shine — and eat. Breakfast gets your body’s metabolism going again after a night of sleeping, and gives you the gradual and adequate energy you need to get through the morning. You don't have to eat snacks to supplement your energy needs and expenditure. It doesn’t have to be complicated too.

Wash your hands with warm water and soap before handling food, eating, or touching your face, and after using the bathroom or coming into contact with potentially contaminated objects such as doorknobs, toys, and menus. Four - Know your family health history. Your family’s medical history can give you valuable information about your health.

The more you know about the health of your relatives, the better informed you’ll be about your risk factors and how to manage them. Five - Eat mindfully. One of the significant differences between people who successfully manage their weight and people who regularly struggle is mindful eating. Turn off the TV or computer, sit down at a table with your food on a plate, and focus on eating. Savor the smell and enjoy the taste. Put your fork down between bites, and take the time to enjoy your meal. Chances are you will eat less and feel more satisfied. Six - Add variety to your diet. Wild salmon and sardines are just a couple of the fish that provide heart-healthy fats such as omega-3, which lower your risk of cardiovascular disease and help preserve your cognitive function.
