Do you use the new year as an annual health seminar with yourself? Here’s a list of 3 simple wellness tips. Hopefully, these will make picking an easily-attainable goal less daunting and enjoyable. Cheers to a healthy and happy new year. 1. Drink half your body weight in ounces of water. If you weigh 160 pounds, you should drink 80 ounces of water. When the body is dehydrated, it doesn’t run efficiently. Drinking water has plenty of benefits including increasing energy, flushing out toxins, improving skin complexion and boosting immunity, to name a few. 2. Start the morning with a hydrating warm drink. I choose warm water and lemon because I like the taste. I’ve also seen apple cider vinegar concoctions that rehydrate and influence the body’s alkaline state, which has been noted for added health benefits. Drink these before coffee and breakfast for instant energy, likely from the rehydration process.

3. Be active daily. Aim for 30 minutes of activity daily. Break it up throughout the day: 10 minutes before work, 10 minutes afterwards and 10 minutes home with the kids. If a long-term resolution seems daunting, aim for newmeasurable goals monthly. Think short-term and create a new goal every month. For instance, come up with an idea like drink homemade juices or smoothies five days a week or don’t eat packaged snacks for a month. It doesn’t seem like such a life overhaul if you add or eliminate a certain food for just 30 days. Plus, if you get in the rhythm of it, you might continue. Or if not, you know you will start a new goal the next month. Beyond Limits PhysicalTherapy offers awellness program for those seeking to live a healthier and more active lifestyle!
