With 2019 coming to an end, many of us are looking into 2020. Hopefully, it’s a year of possibilities, new discoveries, happiness, and challenges to be conquered.
With the New Year approaching, many of us will also be making resolutions… some revolving around being healthier. As a dietitian, I love to see people make these choices… whether it be to exercise more, eat more fruits and vegetables, or get enough sleep every night… small changes make a BIG impact.
How are you going to kick-start 2020?!
Drink more water! 60% of our body is made of water… Replenish it!
Eat more fruits and vegetables!
Eat less sugar
These are just a few small changes that can be made to kick-start 2020 into a healthier, better year. Remember to make your goals realistic, measurable, and put a time frame on them! I hope 2020 is a successful year for all!
