Dr. Donnica's Healthy New Year's Resolutions

Have you written--and committed to--your healthy New Year's resolutions yet, or are you procrastinating?  Here are some suggestions to get you started. 

  1. I will give myself and my family the gift of a healthier lifestyle this year.
  2. I will give myself the gift of a healthy breakfast each day.
  3. I will give myself the gift of stopping my unhealthy behaviors (e.g. smoking, drinking too much alcohol, etc.).
  4. I will wear my seat belt religiously.
  5. I will increase my water intake by drinking a glass of water instead of a sugary, carbonated or alcoholic drink.
  6. I will take my necessary vitamins and supplements.
  7. I will practice proper dental hygiene.
  8. I will get my annual physical exam plus my pelvic, Pap smear, rectal exam, and mammogram if I am due for them.
  9. I will practice monthly breast self exams.
  10. I will increase my daily physical activity. . .and enjoy it!

One of my New Year's resolution repeaters is usually to stop procrastinating.  I noticed that's not on the list this year.  And look what happened!  I got my New Year's resolutions finished early.  Well, the health list anyway!

This article comes with my best wishes to all for a happy and healthy New Year!
