Welcome to the New Year! Today feels a lot like last Thursday (except there’s less wrapping paper strewn about the house). The new year is a good time to make changes, but sometimes it just feels like any other day. Whether you’re ready for resolutions or still recovering from the holidays, today is a great day to take care of your body.
In 2020 this blog will be focusing on the health benefits of successful weight loss habits (sleep, exercise, consuming water and vegetables, and portion control). The more I learned about why those healthy habits help us lose weight, the more I learned about how those healthy habits help protect us from heart disease, diabetes type 2, and cancer. There are no guarantees when it comes to health (especially cancer) but giving your body what it needs is a good way to start.
For today, just do one healthy thing for your body, even if it’s taking a moment to relax and be grateful for the parts of you that work well. Or drink a glass of water. Or take a walk. Whatever you want, it’s your Thursday!
“A blessing for you, because the Lord your God loves you.” Deuteronomy 23:5b
