Kitterman Woods wants all our residents to stay Happy and Healthy in the New Year!
New Years resolutions, we all make them. Starts out little like this… I’m going to eat healthier, lose weight , start working out, save money, reduce stress ect.
By the time March is here we tend to sweep those resolutions under the rug. We’ve all done it and there is NO reason we should feel guilty about not sticking with it.
Here are few simple tips.
One easy way not to feel guilty about that resolution, is by not calling it a resolution. Instead try looking at it as a change in lifestyle. Much like moving to a new home or taking a new job.
Trying to lose weight? Did you know walking 20 minutes a day can help you lose weight? It also is good for your heart and is also good to reduce stress. If you’re not disciplined enough do it on your own, you can hire a personal trainer. He or she is sure to keep you on track. They even have personal trainers that will come to your home with equipment to train you. For as little as $40 a session. Do not put pressure on yourself. If you don’t meet your goal, remember we are human… and your best is always good enough. So go ahead, give yourself a big pat on the back. You aimed to run a mile today but, only made it through a half of mile. Way to go!
Eating healthy, it is something we should all do; however when you worked all day, ran errands after work, then drive by that McDonalds on your way home… It would be so much easier to swing through the drive-through grab a Big Mac, and say dinner served! Well here is a quick and easy way to have a home cooked meal every night. Make your meals in advance. You can find simple healthy recipes online. Some only take 30 minutes to prepare. Then pop them into the freezer. Before you leave for work take the meal out and place in fridge. That way when you get home all you have to do is take it out of the refrigerator and warm it up. Now that is easy and healthy!
Now when it comes to money, there are several different things that you can do to keep more green in your pocket. Some easy changes like getting new car insurance, switching cable service or going with a new cell phone carrier. You would be surprised at the savings per month! Coupons, coupons, coupons… Your not a coupon clipper? You ought to be. Its so easy. With today’s technology you do not even have to buy the Sundays paper to get all the coupons. More and more stores provide electronic coupons. Simply by going to their website or sighing up at their web site. There are other sites like Groupon and Local dines, These site offer you merchandise and restaurant dining for a fraction of the cost.
I have given you a lot of tips today. Are you wondering why I haven’t talked about the reducing stress? Well that is because if you follow these simple tips, you are already on your way to reducing some stress factors in your life.
