1. Drink half your body weight in 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 warmwater 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.

10 minutes before work, 10 minutes afterwards and 10 minutes home with the kids. If a long- term resolution seems daunting, aim for new measurable goalsmonthly. Think short-termand 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. Good luck. Happy New Year and always remember to check with your doctor or physical therapist when making changes to your lifestyle.

3. Be active daily. Aim for 30 minutes of activity daily. Break it up throughout the day:
