Six tips to become a Healthier Person in 2016

Another brand new year is here and as usual, some of us may be debating whether or not to set New Year resolutions. However, one thing no one can argue with is the need to be healthy. This is because without good health, you simply cannot achieve anything- whether or not you have a resolution.
This New Year 2016, Olime Health is on a mission to make you a healthier person. Here are six simple steps you can take to have a happier, healthier 2016.

Becoming a healthier you
  1. Find a drive and set a target: Finding some compelling reasons to stay healthier as well as setting targets for yourself will push you to embark on a journey of becoming a healthier you. This is because when there is a compelling reason, humans by nature are driven to do things and we naturally like to achieve targets.
  2. Develop an action plan: After setting a healthy lifestyle goal, develop a plan of action to help you achieve the goal.
  3. Get a truthful witness: Living a healthy lifestyle is a journey, and like any other journey, it can be difficult to keep up or maintain the momentum. Getting someone you trust to act as a truthful witness to push you on your healthier lifestyle journey is very helpful. Remember two is better than one. Get someone so you can remind each other daily of your healthy lifestyle goals. With that, it is easier to stick with the healthy lifestyle plans or choices you have decided to make. In other words, you need someone to be a scorekeeper.
  4. Start or Join a health club: A health club is a good place to go when you are looking for encouragement or you will like to know how others maintain healthier lifestyles. You cannot go wrong with a social support system, we all need one.
  5. Discuss health at home: You can also hold healthy lifestyle discussions at home. In such a discussion, you may look at how to support one another in making healthy choices. It will also be a good period to modify any unhealthy habits and behaviour in the family.
  6. Look for a nutritionist or a dietitian: Find a professional with whom you can chat concerning your lifestyle choices. You can also invite the professional to your health club and your home.
So, get started today. By following these steps, you are on track to a healthy new year.

Hello Gameli, I know of individuals, who have formed health clubs and keep fit clubs as well. What about forming a health club with your friends?
