Have a Happy and Healthy New Year! | Ooltewah, TN Walk-In Clinic

Can you even believe that we are just a few weeks away from 2018? If you’re like our team at AFC Urgent Care Ooltewah, you may already be thinking of goals and resolutions for the new year. Give some of these healthy tips a try!

Making Your Health a Priority in 2018

First, start your day off on the healthiest foot possible. Serve yourself up a healthy breakfast filled with a carbohydrate, some lean protein and a bit of healthy fat. Then plan ahead to make the rest of your day a healthy eating success! Try out these healthy lunch meal options.

Second, schedule physical activity into your day. As parents, it’s easy for us to put our health on the back burner. However, when you have your best health, you are able to provide the best for your family. Therefore, you really can’t afford not to put your health first. Aim for 150 minutes of moderate exercise each week, which averages out to 30 minutes a day on most days of the week. No matter how busy your schedule is, you can fit in an exercise routine, we promise.

Finally, make time for yourself! When we’re taking care of family members and friends, it can be easy to forget that we need to care for ourselves, too. Set aside time each week to do some type of activity that you love, whether alone or with close friends. Fill your “me time” with what you need most, from reading a book to relaxing in a bath to spending the night out with the girls. Just make the time to relax.
