New Year, New You: 4 Tips to a Healthier You

Happy New Year! Did you make a New Year’s resolution? Millions of Americans make resolutions every January hoping to improve their health by losing weight, getting fit, or eating healthy. Make this the year you and your family lead a healthier lifestyle by following these 4 tips:

Tip #1: Be Physically Active Your Way: It is important to be physically active your way. Start by doing what you can and picking activities you like. To gain the most health benefits, adults should aim for at least 150 minutes (2 hours and 30 minutes) of moderate-intensity aerobic activity each week and youth should do 60 minutes (1 hour) or more of physical activity daily. 

Tip #2: Rethink Your Drink.
Substitute water for sugary or alcoholic drinks to reduce calories and stay safe.

Tip #3: Get Enough Sleep. Adults need at least 7 hours of sleep per night.

Tip #4: Eat a Healthy Diet.  Make healthy food choices like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meats, and low-fat dairy products.
