2015 Wellness Goals

By Jillan Rowbotham, D.O., Board Certified Physician


2015 has made an arrival and now is the time to consider making some resolutions. These goals will help you focus on a healthier you in the new year.


1. Be informed about what you are consuming

If you are not in the habit of reading food labels I highly recommend it. Many people underestimate calorie, fat, and sodium content and overestimate portion size. Even with reading individual labels it can be hard to keep track of your total consumption throughout the day. Keeping a food diary can make this easier and there are many websites and apps that make it less time consuming and more informative. and are two popular sites that also have phone apps.

2. Start moving

You don't have to join a gym or start running marathons to be healthy. Take a class, do an exercise video at home, or walk on your lunch break. As a general goal you should aim for at least 30 minutes of physical activity every day but this can be broken up into three 10-minute sessions if you don't have 30 minutes in a row available. Weight training is an important part fitness and weight loss plans. Meeting with a personal trainer can help you learn what weights and exercises will best help you meet your goals.
