Health resolution for 2010

People make new resolutions on the commencement of a New Year to lead a better life, to remain heal and hearty throughout the year and after on. Some people pledge to shed extra pounds, give up their bad habits like quitting smoking, alcohol, excessive eating. Some people make healthy plans like dieting, exercise and regular check up to boost up their fitness. Whatever may be the plan, making resolutions for health certainly help people to stay healthier than people without any plan of resolutions. Here are some tips that can help making perfect resolutions for you and keep you in track of road to good health.
Eat well
The good list of food includes fibre from fruits and vegetables, raw nuts and whole grains. On the bad list, there are excess salt, refined grains, refined sugar and fatty foods. Reduce the amount of saturated fats (found in animal products such as meat and butter, and processed foods) and trans-fats (found in partially hydrogenated oils, vegetable shortening, some types of margarine and processed foods) in our diet.
Vegetables should be given priority to dishes to increase overall nutrient values and improve health. Unfortunately it is largely ignored. Get a notepad and write down what you eat for a week. Just knowing what you are eating on a day to day basis can inspire you to eat healthier.
Lose weight
Setting an ideal weight lose plan and stay stick to the plan are two most vital keys to shed extra ponds. Curb certain amount of calorie and fat set by a physician or nutritionist to lose weight and burn calorie through regular exercise.
CDC recommends eating a light, healthy snack before heading to a party to help curb hunger before feasting and prevent overeating. Experts advised to consider low-fat dairy products over full-fat counterparts, such as cheeses and milk, when preparing meals.
Walk everyday
Walking should be given utmost priority in our resolution list. One study reports that walking 30 minutes a day adds 1.3 years to a person’s life. Brisk walking is most effective and it can decrease hypertension, lower bad cholesterol levels and help you lose weight. It keeps the muscles in good working order, stimulates the flow of blood and makes you feel better both physically and mentally. Try brisk walking at least three times a week for about 30 minutes. Get exercise during your regular daily activities by walking at lunch, taking the stairs instead of the elevator and walking short distances instead of using your car.
Get enough sleep
Too much sleep can kill you. But too little sleep can kill you, too. Sleep deprivation has been linked to stress, depression, immune-system suppression and obesity. A British study found that people who slept seven hours each night lived longer, on average, than people who adjusted their schedules to either add or subtract hours from their nightly slumber. The prescribed amount of sleep required is seven hours. However, each person needs slightly different amount.
Increase health awareness
To achieve a happy and healthy life, knowing about many aspects of health can go a long way. Knowing about common health problems, their symptoms and prevention techniques, along with things like important vitamins and minerals, proper skin care and office ergonomics will prevent many diseases for the rest of your life.
Making proper health resolutions and stick to accomplish it will definitely help you to enjoy the New Year with a sound mind and sound body. Have a happy and healthy New Year. Source
