In the News A Better YOU in 2024 – Part II

Written by Lisa Jillanza

(Continued from Part I…)

 

Be open to change: Change can be difficult, but it can also be an opportunity for growth and development. Embrace change and be open to new experiences.

Set better boundaries: Setting limits is one of the most courageous things that we can do. It is a challenge to let people know what you will and won’t tolerate.

Get more sleep: We need 8 to 10 hours of sleep every night. Teenagers and babies need 10 to 12 hours. Make sure to get those ZZZ’s.

Meditate for 5 minutes every day: Meditation is an effective way for people to relax, harness life’s energy forces and come to realizations.

Do something scary: It can be warm and cozy in our safe space, but as the saying goes, you miss 100% of the shots that you don’t take. Do something scary and bold that takes you out of that comfort zone- wear the red lipstick, ask for that raise, try out for that play, and take that little idea that has been whispering in your head and give it a voice.

Plan a trip: Life is for enjoying all the beautiful places that this Earth has to offer. So, get out there and see it!

Eat fruits and vegetables at every meal: No matter how many you are currently eating, there is always room for more! They say an apple a day keeps the doctor away, so imagine what an apple, orange, broccoli, and carrots will do!

Happy New Year to All and Here’s Hoping for the Best 2024 to you and yours!

Happy New Year!

As the excitement and merriment of the holidays and ringing in the New Year die down, it’s time to reflect on the past year and focus on building a better you in 2024.

Here are some ways that you can work on that goal and have a successful and mindful new year.

 

Practice gratitude: Take a few minutes every day to reflect on the things you are grateful for. This can help you develop a more positive outlook on life.

Learn a new skill: Trying your hand at a new skill or hobby can help you become a more interesting and diverse person. Consider taking up sport, trying to learn a new language or take a painting class. Whatever piques your interest, have at it!

Volunteer: Volunteering your time, talent, and energy to help others can be a rewarding experience. Consider helping a local non-profit or charity organization. 

Be kind to yourself: It’s important to be kind to yourself and practice self-care. This can include getting enough sleep, eating healthy, and taking the time to relax and recharge. 

Set realistic goals: Setting realistic goals can help you stay motivated and focused. Break down your larger goals into smaller ones. 

Connect with others: Building strong relationships with family and friends can help you feel more supported and connected to others. Connect with your loved ones on a regular basis.

Healthy Living: Resolutions for a Better YOU

Written by Lisa Jillanza

The easiest way to kill your New Year’s resolution sometimes is to make one at all.  So, why not make the switch in 2024 to not make a resolution but choose a way to be a better person by making some inward and outward changes.

Some suggestions include:

Get more sleep.  Besides helping you to feel energized during the day and improve your mood, getting more sleep can also aid in losing weight.  Your body repairs and rejuvenates during sleep… even calcium is added to your bones while you sleep!  Getting adequate sleep is the best way for your mind and body to be the best it can be.  While optimum sleep time varies from person to person, the average is 4 to 11 hours each day.  While getting to bed earlier is easier said than done, you should also avoid food for at least 2 hours prior to bedtime and eliminate all sources of light in your bedroom while you sleep.

Eat a fruit or a vegetable while every meal.  Studies show that Americans eat fewer fruits and vegetables than other countries, and disease prevention is directly linked to consumption of fruits and vegetables.  It seems like a no-brainer to get healthier through eating more fruits and vegetables, but for some it may be best to start small.  For example, add a banana to your morning cereal or make sure to eat a salad prior to dinner.

Cook more at home.  While relying on fast food can be a fast fix, it will have far more consequences on your health than benefits.  Restaurant foods tend to be unhealthier and portion sizes way off than the norm.  Cook healthier meals at home and leave restaurant meals to date nights or social nights.

Don’t be so hard on yourself.  Resolve to change the way you think and talk about yourself this year. If you constantly put yourself down the more, you will feel that way and act accordingly.  Turn things around with positive thoughts.

Healthy Living: Ways to Stay Healthy This Holiday Season

Written by Lisa Jillanza

It’s the most germiest time of the year! Isn’t that how the song goes? Oh, wonderful, that’s right! Well, it may be the most wonderful time of the year if you and your family can remain healthy throughout the flu and holiday season.

 

Here are a few ways that you can make your health and safety a priority this year and keep you healthy well into 2024. 

  • Wash your hands often to help prevent the spread of germs. Make sure that you are washing them for at least 20 seconds with soap and water.
  • Bundle up when you are headed outdoors in the cold. Wear light, warm layers, hat, gloves, and scarf. And waterproof boots, too!
  • Don’t drink and drive or let others drink and drive. This is an all-year deal and not just for the holidays.
  • Be smoke-free. Avoid smoking and second-hand smoke whenever possible. If you are a smoker, consider making that early resolution to quit.
  • Get your yearly exams and screenings. Just because you are busy enjoying the season shouldn’t mean that you should put off those important health appointments.
  • Keep an eye on children. Keep hazardous or potentially hazardous items, foods, drinks, and objects away from children. Protect them from potential accidents.
  • Practice fire safety and know your family plan. Most residential fires occur during the winter months, so be prepared in the event of an emergency.
  • Prepare food safely. Wash hands, avoid cross-contamination, cook foods to the proper temperature and refrigerate foods after eating.
