As we look back at 2020 and prepare for a new year, this is the perfect time to regroup and seize opportunities for a fresh start, and take charge of your health and fitness.
As you write your story and start a new chapter in your life, look ahead so you can have a better story in the end. Think about the lessons learned this past year, and move forward without carrying the negativity with you.
While we know that the New Year will not erase the effects of the virus, neither will the virus suddenly end. But you can make changes that will have a profound positive affect on your life. I encourage you to choose 2021 as the year to renew your health and fitness!
Being healthy and physically fit can help you to have a robust immune system, which will allow your body to better fight off disease. Focusing on your health can help you minimize your risks of serious illness, and if you were to become ill, your health status can influence side effects that you may experience. In fact, CDC data suggests that while most people do recover from this virus, the majority of those who experience severe illness have complicating pre-existing health issues.
Some of the best ways you can help your immune system is to make healthy food choices, keep your blood sugar under control and shed body fat. CDC data shows correlations between obesity and diabetes, and the severity of the virus. It’s up to you to take responsibility for your health and work towards improving your blood sugar numbers or your weight status.
If you don’t start off the new year with health and fitness in mind, you can quickly get very busy with life, and keep telling yourself that you are going to do it tomorrow. We all know that tomorrow never actually gets here, because it is always today.
So, take action now! Make a decision for your health and fitness that YOU are going to make a change for 2021, and start to take care of your body and health! Happy New Year – 2021!
