Tips for a New You in the New Year
01/04/2017

The new year is the perfect time to take a step back and assess your health and finances. Whether you need to take a closer look at your financial well-being or your physical fitness, what better time to do so than today? These tips will help discover a new and improved you:

Financial Stability: Your aim/goal should be to create a positive net worth, and you want it to grow each year. Add up the approximate value of your assets and liabilities to determine your net worth. Find a website that will help you keep track of your income, expenses and net worth on a daily basis.

Healthy Portions: The key to any meal is to have 75 percent of your plate covered with vegetables and 25 percent covered with meat or pasta.  A serving of meat is two to three ounces—about the size of a deck of cards, or the palm of your hand. A serving of grains is equal to one slice of bread, one ounce of cereal, or ½ cup of pasta or rice. A serving of fruit or vegetables is equal to one piece of fresh fruit or vegetable, ½ cup chopped, or ¾ cup of fruit or vegetable juice.

Make Time for Fitness: Just 30 minutes of physical activity a day is effective in staying healthy. Try to do a few things during the work day such as taking the stairs instead of the elevator or escalator. Squeeze a stress ball while at work to relieve tension, burn calories, increase flexibility and improve blood flow. Exercise during your lunch hour, even if it’s just a walk around the block or up and down a flight of stairs.

Start your employees off on the right foot this year by implementing a wellness program. It is beneficial that your employees understand the importance of physical and mental health.
