Spring Forward with Good Health!
Posted on March 27 2015
Spring has arrived and with the sunny weather, chirping birds, and spring rains; it’s time to take your health into consideration! Striving to make healthy changes with the weather change can motivate you to remain consistent and reach your goals. But how can you make the change from winter couch potato to having a spring in your step?
First, if you’re making big changes from a sedentary lifestyle to one of increased activity (especially if you’re adding a new fitness regimen to your day), you should make an appointment with your Doctor to discuss your general health. It’s important to make sure that you’re healthy enough to begin exercise so prepare for a basic examination that might also include blood work. Your Doctor will probably also take your current weight and discuss any immediate lifestyle changes you need to make on your way to better health.
We all know that besides a healthy diet of fresh veggies, fruit, and grains, daily exercise is just as important. It’s important to start slow when beginning any exercise program. A walk around the neighborhood increasing in distance and becoming a jog or run is a great way to start you on the track to a healthier lifestyle. If you prefer to join a gym for motivation, it might be a good idea to speak to a personal trainer about the right way to exercise. A personal trainer can also give you tips on classes you can take that might prevent you from getting bored and giving up on your new lifestyle change!
If you want to think about changing your diet along with your activity level, small changes will make big differences. Cutting out sugar-laden soda, including diet sodas will make a big impact in your waistline and your overall health. Make sure you’re drinking at least the daily-recommended value of water a day – 8, 8 ounce glasses – to avoid dehydration. Adding raw or steamed vegetables, fresh fruit, and whole grains like quinoa and brown rice can help you reach your goals faster.
Setting goals for better eating habits and increased fitness will help you make this spring your healthiest yet! Partnering with your medical providers will ensure that you’re doing things the healthy way and will help you avoid injuries or illnesses!
