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.
Still, it is possible for you to stick to your New Year’s resolutions with the right amount of support. Southeastern Med in Cambridge, Ohio offers a number of classes to help support healthy lifestyles and resolutions.
Here is a look at the most common New Year’s resolutions, and ways we can help you turn some resolutions into reality:
- Lose weight: Southeastern Med offers outpatient nutrition counseling, where a dietitian can address a number of health issues, including: weight management, high blood pressure and cholesterol, diabetes, kidney disease and more.
- Exercise regularly: To help individuals meet their fitness goals, our Life Enhancement Activity Program classes (LEAP) are conducted by our nationally certified and Ohio-licensed athletic trainers. These one-on-one sessions help individuals become faster, stronger and generally more physically fit.
- Quit Smoking: Everyone knows smoking is bad for them, but not everyone finds it possible to quit on their own. Southeastern Med’s Wellness Department offers free Quit Smoking/Tobacco Coaching classes designed to give you the support you need to kick the habit for good. Coaches work with you on ways to avoid temptation, get support, change your routines and ways of thinking, and tips for coping with withdrawal symptoms you may face. For more information on these classes that are open to the public, call us at 740-435-2946.
No matter your resolutions this year, getting support in some form can only help you stick to them. For more information on health offerings at Southeastern Med, call us at 740.439.8000.
