Most of us could use a little help keeping our resolutions through January, much less the whole year.
Eating better. Losing weight. Exercising regularly. Quitting smoking.
What seems like a totally doable lifestyle choice on January 1 when we’re recovering from the overindulgence of the holidays seems impossible by January 10, when we only had a banana and some crackers for lunch and just want to crush a pizza and binge Netflix.
Those who make resolutions to incorporate healthy eating and fitness into their lifestyle can find help and support in that mission with Southeastern Med’s 2019 Group Lifestyle Balance™ (GLB) program. Registration is now open for the 2019 program session, with classes beginning on Wednesday, January 23rd from 5-6pm at Community Healthlink in Cambridge.
Maybe it’s the ability to cover up with big parkas, hoodies and sweatpants all season.
Maybe it’s the “When in Rome….” feeling that envelopes us as we see our friends, family and coworkers making repeated trips to the buffet table at holiday gatherings.
By definition, toys are fun objects for children to play with.
Unfortunately, they can also be dangerous. A study found that a child goes to the emergency room every three minutes from an injury sustained playing with a toy – many of them the ride-on variety, such as scooters.
For everything the holiday season includes – parties and get-togethers involving family, friends, co-workers, food and fun – health sometimes gets put on the back burner.
While it’s easy to get caught up in the festive moment, it’s also entirely possible – and important – to look for ways to look after the overall well-being of you and your loved ones during this time of year.
The holiday eating routine is enough to make some of us say, “Ho, ho, holy cow! What happened to my waistline?”
The holidays are notoriously tough waters to tread for even the most health-conscious people, with each party and get-together of the season filled with sinfully tasty dishes and treats.
