ALBUQUERQUE – 2022 is almost over and a lot of people look back and say that 2023 is going to be an even better year. With this vision in mind, they set goals, make plans, and generally become better people.
However, there are some who want to make changes in the coming year but do not know where to start. If you are in this group of people, don’t worry, because here we come to propose a healthier lifestyle for 2023, both physically and emotionally.
“Starting the new year by focusing on your health is a great start to a healthier lifestyle. Not only on your physical health but your mental health,” said Christopher Novak, medical director of the New Mexico Department of Health’s Division of Public Health. Also be sure to pay attention.
To make this change, don’t be in a hurry, be comfortable and start working with what you feel comfortable with.
Start with small changes to your routine, such as drinking a glass of water at the start of your day, not checking social media for at least two hours after waking up, and eating more vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and low-fat dairy. Including include products in your diet.
Another small change that you can incorporate in your daily routine is to take the stairs instead of the lift. It’s a change that will have a positive effect on your physical health in the long run. However, if you dare, try to incorporate an exercise routine into your day. Moving your body for 30 minutes a day is enough to maintain a healthy physical condition.
Try to sleep for at least 8 hours. According to the Department of Health, lack of sleep is linked to many diseases and chronic conditions. You can find resources for better sleep here.
But above all, try to enjoy your day to day. It sounds cliché, but focusing on the present and not stressing about the things you can’t control will have a positive effect on your life and make you worry about what you have now instead of worrying about what you have now. Enjoy it more, instead of worrying about how everything will be or what could have happened.
