Make Small Changes to Stay Healthy

Every March is celebrated as Nutrition Month.

 

Whether your organization is carrying out a health or wellness campaign or not, there are small tweaks that you can make to your personal life to improve wellness. As a Registered Dietitian, I encourage everyone to do one small thing every day in the month of March towards maintaining a healthier lifestyle.

See below, or download this infographic by entegra.

  1. Sit up straight! When you move from poor posture to good posture, you increase levels of energizing hormones.

  2. Drink 8 glasses of water a day. Dehydration can lead to memory loss and confusion.

  3. Choose water instead of sugary drinks.

  4. Commit to one healthy stress-relieving activity per day.

  5. Use part of your lunch break to walk. Dedicate at least five minutes of your lunchbreak to walking.

  6. Reduce your screen time. Spend time doing healthier, more interactive and physical activities.  Move every 90 minutes!

  7. Have a cup of afternoon tea! It will force you to take a break from your  busy day.

  8. Control your portions. Limiting your portions is necessary for healthy eating and weight management.

  9. Eat a salad for lunch or dinner.

  10. Eat breakfast. It truly is the most important meal of the day.
