Make a Commitment to Health

We’re a few short days away from 2015, and I’m sure that many of you have your New Year’s Resolution ready to go. It’s a big commitment, and undoubtedly takes discipline to stick to. If we can make stronger movements to improve our health, than living longer, healthier, and happier is the ultimate motivation. It’s very tough to go cold turkey, so cheat days are important. Whether you need a rest day if you’re committing to more exercise, or a splurge meal on a healthier diet, you need to keep yourself sane, and happy. So this is it, let’s close out 2014 with a bang, and make 2015 our healthiest year yet!

Prevent or Manage Diabetes with Your Smartphone

There is a great article on the Huffington Post today called “Get Smart: Prevent or Manage Diabetes with Your Smartphone” about great apps for your device to make healthy living easy. The article talks about not only prevention and healthy living, but also diabetes management. Here is a blurb from the article:

“This mobile device is ubiquitous today; as the old American Express ad says, we “don’t leave home without it.” Of course, not everyone has one, but for many people, a smartphone can be a terrific tool to help prevent diabetes, or manage the disease and prevent complications for those who already have it. Below are some of my favorite downloadable programs, or apps, and ways to make your smartphone work for and motivate you in the pursuit of healthful living and diabetes management.”

It’s never too early to start a new year’s resolution. Let’s all take steps together to enjoy a healthier, more enjoyable lifestyle.

Deal with Holiday Stress in a Healthy Way

A healthy way to deal with holiday stress? Yes, there is such a thing, and yes, it is possible for you. The holidays are basically upon us, and amidst all of the planning, shopping, traveling, and eating, we need to stay sane. Use some of these helpful tips from the Jigsaw Health website. There is a taste of some below:

“1. See stress for what it is. Stress happens. Life happens. Viewing normal life events as uncontrollable, personal attacks “wires” you to produce more and more cortisol, drive up your blood pressure, and jeopardize your health. But seeing normal life events as — well, normal — enables your body to “come down” from stressful situations more quickly and stop the vicious stress cycle before it gets out of control.

2. Eat, drink, and be merry — within reason. The holidays are meant for celebration, not overindulgence. Use our holiday eating guide to make wise — and healthy — choices. Having some Digestive Enzymes handy could also be helpful to prevent indigestion from too many rich foods.

3. Exercise for your sanity’s sake. When the stress seems overwhelming, take an exercise break. Just 30 minutes a day — a brisk walk, a run on the treadmill, or strength training — gives you a powerful tool to fend off stress. Exercise not only helps you manage weight and is good for your body, but it can help you de-stress and clear your mind. And with a clear mind, you can make better decisions about what’s good for you this holiday season…”

So take a look, and good luck incorporating them. Have a warm, and safe holiday season!
