Making-Resolutions-Dans-Wellness-Newsletter-January-2016Ready to get healthier?  We’re here to help you start your year off right.  Check out the ideas below and let’s go!

  • If you smoke, make a plan now to quit. When choosing a quit date, sooner is better.  Many smokers choose a date within two weeks to quit smoking.  This will give you time to prepare.
  • Make half your plate fruits and vegetables. Look for fruits and veggies that are red, orange and dark green.  These are full of vitamins and minerals.
  • Cook more meals at home. Prepare in advance and choose recipes that are both delicious and good for you.  Cooking at home lets you control portion sizes and sodium levels.
  • Drink more water. Keep a reusable water bottle with you throughout the day as a reminder to stay hydrated.  Try adding orange, lime or lemon slices to your water for fun and a little flavor.
  • Try new activities. Staying active doesn’t have to cost a lot.  Get creative and find activities that require little or no equipment.  Make being active a priority by setting aside time for new activities you can enjoy with family or friends.
