It’s that time of year when trees regain their leaves, flowers begin to bloom, and many people start wondering if their summer clothes will still flatter them. Of course, warmer weather offers plenty of opportunities to get more exercise, eat fresh food, and to focus more on health and not just upon waist size.
Enjoy Your Spring Renewal Resolutions for Better Health Habits
Are you looking for some inspiration to incorporate a few more healthy habits into your lifestyle this spring? Hopefully, these tips will help!
Make a Note of National Nutrition Month on Your Calendar
You can celebrate National Nutrition Month along with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s HealthyPlate.gov website. Find fun and sensible tips to make meals a bit healthier and just as tasty. This page includes links to pages for preschoolers, older children, teens, young adults, older adults, and entire families.
Graphics, tools, and even games make healthier eating fun and engaging for everybody. You should find that you have an easier time motivating your family to enjoy healthy eating if they get involved in and educated about what that means.
Put a Little More Spring in Your Step
Diet and exercise go together like the lettuce and tomatoes in your healthy salad. If you’ve been pretty sedentary during the cold winter months, you might ease back into fitness with some activities you enjoy. For instance, you could get into the habit of walking with your spouse or a neighbor in the evening to enjoy some fresh air and conversation. Of course, this might also be the perfect time to simply start preparing your garden or tackling spring cleaning tasks.
If you’re one of those busy people who don’t believe you have time to exercise, these tips may help you get more fit without interrupting your schedule:
- Park further away from the door when you stop at the store, so you have to walk more.
- Get off of the bus or train a stop or two early to enjoy an invigorating, short walk to work or home.
- Window shop at the mall to check out new spring fashions and people watch.
- Invest in some light weights, and use them at your desk a few times a day.
