Happy New Year!

It's a new year and it seems like everyone is making resolutions for 2013. We all have good intentions but sometimes our resolutions are just too difficult or unrealistic. This year why not make a couple more reasonable resolutions. Here are a few suggestions.

- Rest more. Try to go to bed 30 minutes earlier every night. A little more sleep can go a long way!

-Drink more water. Just because it's not hot out doesn't mean you don't need to stay hydrated. In fact many offices and homes are quite dry from radiators blasting.

-Cut down on caffeine. Replace that second cup of coffee with a cup of decaf or herbal tea.

-Clean out your fridge and pantry and get rid of processed snacks/foods. Buy and eat more fruits and vegetables. Stock up on healthy snacks like nuts.

-Cook more! Foods prepared at home are much healthier than the majority of restaurants out there. Improve your health and waistline by eating out less.

-Move! Take the stairs over the elevator. Shovel the sidewalk. Take the dog for a longer walk. A little extra here and there adds up quick!

Every January I ask my clients to make two resolutions that will improve their quality of life. Small lasting changes can make a big difference.

Happy 2013! Let's make it the best year yet!
