Healthy Strategies That Support Wellness

It’s common practice to work on being healthier temporarily in the interest of losing weight, fitting into a clothing size, or attending a class reunion.  What’s less common is seeing people make healthy changes that last a lifetime.  We encourage you to form habits, and

Don’t believe that “I’m too far gone” or “I can’t do this at my age” or “I’m behind and should be further along”.  You can start right now, where you are, and accomplish amazing things!  Believe for the best, employ discipline, and build your support system.  There’s a saying that “slow” is the fastest way to get to where you want to go.  Be the tortoise, not the hare.  The time will pass anyway so you might as well be working towards a better you.  Being consistent regardless of how you feel while keeping your goal in mind will enable you to reap the rewards of your efforts.  Healthier habits can look something like this:

  • Prioritizing sleep over late night events/TV
  • Foregoing alcohol when eating out
  • Making a point to workout on vacation or at conferences
  • Cooking at home during the week
  • Preferring to walk whenever you can
  • Taking to the stairs at every opportunity
  • Prioritizing workouts as must-dos

It’s not too late to work on being a better you!

What do you know about Falls and Preventing them?

In my 8 years of working here I have literally fallen for this place. Maybe I’m a little clumsy…maybe I’m a little absent minded, the jury is still out. I do know that I am guilty of falling more than a few times and having 

Time to Move: Workout Playlist

Time to Move: Workout Playlist

There are days where I do not want to workout. I know it’s impossible, but there are some days where my motivation is not as high. Have you ever woken up in the morning and you have a song stuck in your head? Not a song that is annoying…a song that gives your heart a little jump and proceeds to get you to hum the tune all day. Those types of days drive me to open my phone and build a playlist around that song. Here is one playlist that will get you through your heart-pounding workout:

 

  1. Born to Run – Bruce Springsteen
  2. Should I Stay or Should I Go – The Clash
  3. Feel Good Inc. – Gorillaz
  4. All About That Bass – Meghan Tranior
  5. Let’s Go – Calvin Harris, Ne-Yo
  6. Hold it Against Me – Britney Spears
  7. More – Usher
  8. Don’t Stop the Music – Rihanna
  9. Roar – Katy Perry
  10. Shut Up and Dance – Walk the Moon
  11. Happy – Pharrell Williams
  12. Rude – Magic! (Cool Down Song)
