Six Strategies for a Healthful New Year

“New Year, New You,” right? Year after year, getting healthy and losing weight tends to be the number one New Year’s resolution. If your goal is to have a healthier, happier New Year, Alliance Town Center wants to help make it the easiest resolution you’ve ever kept with these local tips for success:

  1. See your doctor! Before implementing a new diet or workout regimen, a good first step in completing a lifestyle change is to have a realistic check-in with your doctor. Let your physician assess your personal health needs and goals. Some of the best doctors in the region are available close to home at Texas Health Resources, Medical City Alliance, Cook Children’s and Parkway Surgical & Cardiovascular Hospital.
  2. Eating out? Eat smart! Going out to eat is inevitable. Set yourself up for success by choosing a restaurant that won’t deter from your goals such as Zoe’s Kitchen, Panera Bread, or Jason’s Deli. Peruse the menu before you get there and determine what you’re going to order ahead of time, as you’re more likely to make unhealthy choices when you’re hungry standing in line.
  3. Get your sweat on! Whether you prefer the pace of a group class or are a traditional gym-goer, ATC has you covered. Orangetheory Fitness offers one hour group personal training workouts, and a luxury Life Time Fitness is slotted to open summer of 2018.
  4. Look the part, feel the part! Dress yourself for success at Dick’s Sporting Goods. They have the hottest trends in workout attire, running or training shoes, cleats or accessories.
  5. Get outdoors! Enjoy some fresh air with your family or four-legged friend and take advantage of Alliance Town Center’s extensive walking and biking trails. With park hours from dusk ‘til dawn at both Bluestem Park and Prairie Vista Park, it’s easy to get your daily dose of vitamin D and spend time in nature any day of the week.
  6. Sleep more! Seriously. The National Sleep Foundation recommends getting seven to nine hours of sleep a night for the average adult. Lack of sleep can have a serious effect on your mental and physical health by causing anxiety, weight gain and more. To get the best quality of sleep, experts also suggest you replace your mattress every 5 to 10 years. Need a new place to lay your head? The professionals at Mattress Firm, Ashley Furniture Store, Rooms to Go or Sleep Experts can help you choose a new mattress to fit your needs.

We hope these tips set you up for success as you and your family continue into the New Year. Be sure to share photos of your health success with us on our Facebook, Twitter or Instagram!
