Experts recommend knowing your blood pressure numbers. If you have high blood pressure, make sure you get it under control to reduce your risk of heart attack or stroke. Also, cut back on processed foods and replace sugary drinks with water. Finally, if you smoke, make 2019 the year you quit for good, and declare your home and car a smoke-free area.
Exercise is also a big part of being healthy and doctors recommend adults to get at least 150 minutes of moderate exercise per week. You should also include weight training at least twice per week. At the very least, just get moving. Experts say even the lightest exercise is better than just sitting around. Getting more exercise can be good for kids too! Experts recommend kids ages six to 17 should get at least an hour of moderate to vigorous exercise per day.
They should also include some weight-bearing activities at least three times a week. That kind of activities include jogging, walking, dancing or playing basketball. With a little prioritizing and attention to self, you will be able to hear and understand yourselves better and steer your life, your way. Start jotting down your New Year resolutions and have a Happy New Year 2019.
