It’s that time of the year, when we are looking back on the year behind us and thinking of how to make the upcoming one even better. No matter how healthy you think you are now, there is always room for improvement to be more mindful of your health from the inside out. As you close out 2017, here are a few resolutions to consider for a healthy spine in 2018!
Define Your 2018 New Year’s Resolution
A healthy mind is just as important as a healthy body. Define what your resolutions mean to you and what those goals look. Resolutions, or goals, are supposed to add to a healthy and happy lifestyle. Make meaningful changes or additions to your new year to help you thrive and feel like your body can tackle any challenges you face in 2018.
Make Time for Exercise in 2018
Now, we are NOT saying to hurry up join a gym, get a trainer, or drop 20 pounds. If those are your goals, great! What everyone should be doing is ‘making a date’ with exercise, whether it’s for a walk, run, yoga, even taking time to stretch your body. If you have a busy schedule, challenge yourself during your daily routine like taking the stairs, parking further away at the store parking lot, and taking the dog for a walk. Adding exercise in any form will always be beneficial to you and your body. Strengthening your entire body helps protect your spine and to prevent future pain and injury .
Eat and Drink More!
This doesn’t mean eat more french fries or cake or drink more soda or 3 more cocktails. This means try adding healthier foods to your plate and adding another cup of water or 2 to your routine. Water actually fills you up which will help prevent overeating. Often times people have a hard time sticking to a drastic “diet” cutting out the treats they love the most. To help remind you to drink water, carry around a water bottle. Be kinder to yourself this year, and try adding healthier choices to your life which will have you feeling and being healthier while still enjoying life.
