In my very first post for this blog, I described my philosophy of multidimensional wellness. Being well is more than just the absence of sickness - it's a holistic concept that encompasses thriving in many aspects of our lives. Each of these aspects affects all the others, making it all the more important to achieve balance and to pay attention to each wellness dimension.
In the spirit of this philosophy, I offer seven categories of wellness resolutions for the New Year:
Eat a heart-healthy diet that includes fruits and vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts, fish, and olive oil. Indulgences will be occasional and savored.
Get at least seven hours of sleep per night.
Exercise for at least 30 minutes per day, combining aerobic, strength, and stretching exercises.
Maintain a healthy weight.
Get regular health screenings and physical examinations as recommended by your doctor.
