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