A New Year to Get Healthy- AFC Urgent Care

How many times have you told yourself, “This year is the year I’m going to get healthy!”? We know: A lot. But 2017 IS actually going to be the year that you get your health on the right track, because you will do it with our help. To Good Health First things first, it’s time to get serious about your healthy resolutions. Year after year, many of us make resolutions come the first day of January to do this and that. It can get to the point where choosing a resolution just becomes more of a habit than an actual resolution. Put your mind in the right place by emphasizing to yourself that this isn’t just a “resolution.” It’s a lifestyle change toward a healthier life. Then, you can move on to your goals. Don’t set a goal to lose 50 pounds in one month. While that would be great, it’s completely unachievable and unhealthy. You want to set yourself up for success, not failure. So set your goals in a reasonable manner. For instance, aim to lose five pounds this month. Then, once you achieve that, aim to lose five pounds the next. Do you have a desire to run a marathon one day? Promise yourself you will hit small tasks along the way to your bigger goal to run a marathon at the end of the year. You want to keep yourself motivated, and seeing yourself hit these small (yet BIG) landmarks will help! Also, let your family and friends know what your goals are so that they can help support you on your journey. Not every day of 2017 is going to be an easy one with this resolution. But with the help of your friends and loved ones, it can be achieved. Lean on them for support when obstacles stand in front of you from time to time. Not sure where to start when it comes to a healthier lifestyle? Visit our urgent care center today to speak to a physician about how to get your life on a healthier track in 2017!
