When it comes to your New Year’s resolutions, small, positive efforts can have a big impact

Focusing on improving your health this year? It’s the little things that add up, according to Dr. Mia Finkelston of LiveHealth Online, who suggests taking these steps for a healthier 2017:

Diet- Make an effort to have nuts every day. The same with green, leafy vegetables.

Sleep- We know sleep is one of the most important things we can do for you body, so try to get better sleep. You will look good and and feel good because of it.

Exercise- Is always at the top of most people’s lists for resolutions. Yet we’re not all gym goers and sometimes we don’t feel like going to the gym. “So I try to explain to my patients about using your body weight and do floor exercises. That way you can still build strength and encourage balance as well as flexibility which do wonderful things for your health,” she says.

Preventative Medicine

How do you stay on track with all these ideas? Preventative medicine is really important for year-long health. As you know it’s a great way to start things off so in the beginning of the year, so go ahead and set up your wellness visit or your physical. Get a dental visit while you’re at it and use the information you’re given and use it all year long.

Try Telemedicine
