Making a Few Healthy Choices can Lead to a Healthy Lifestyle

By Sonja Kabell 

Did you know that one of the TOP resolution for a New Year is to get more healthy and to lose weight?  No surprise I am sure! We all know that being at a healthy BMI (body mass index) will add years to our lives. It is not only important for the parents to be slim, but also our kids.  Making a few changes can make a big difference in achieving a healthy lifestyle! Here are some quick and easy tips you can started today:

  • Eat more fruits and vegetables verse other foods. Stick with mother nature when eating snacks. Always serve at least one  vegetable with each meal.
  • Think lean. When making choices around foods, think lean.  Bake, broil, pan sauté and grilling are better choices than fried.  Use a cooking spray verse oil. Cutting down on calories anywhere you can.
  • Get moving!  The research is there.  Activity will improve your life.  Not only will it help with weight loss, it also increases your stamina.  Who does want more stamina? Our family enacted the 15 minute walk-about.  We set our phone timer for 15 minutes and get going. When the timer goes off, we turn around and go home.   Doesn’t cost anything or require a gym membership. If it is cold, you can do the same thing in the shopping malls.
  • Put your health first!  Make is a priority to focus on the health of you and your family.  We sometimes ignore our most precious asset, our health. We only get one body and it is a miraculous thing. Constantly renewing and repairing itself.  Take care of it and it will take care of you!
