If you’re like many Americans, December is a busy time filled with holiday parties, after-work events, and numerous trips in search of the perfect gift. This can lead some to neglect their exercise habits, overindulge in sweets and savories, and get too little sleep.
Come New Year’s Day, many people choose to reset, aiming to trim their waistlines, get to the gym regularly, and engage in overall healthy behaviors. Thirty-seven percent of people in a new-year survey said they planned to focus on eating healthier and getting more exercise. Twenty-four percent planned to focus on self-care.
The good news? With a few minor tweaks, say NewYork-Presbyterian doctors, nurses, and dietitians, it’s easy to establish a healthier lifestyle.
