Real Health This Year: Commit to 8-10 Healthy Things
Every year I ask patients the same question……what are you going to do this year to improve your health? Patients usually tell me one thing that they are going to do differently to be healthy. Some people think that they will simply drink a protein shake a few times a week, or start a new work out routine, or have good posture. It’s easy to think that by doing one thing differently that it will make you feel better…. but often there is much more to it. In order to really make permanent changes, try to consider 8-10 things are you going to do this year to make your life healthier. The following ideas could be part of your 2022 New Year’s resolutions.
