Must-Read: The Most Important in Health Resolutions
We’re not huge fans of New Year’s Resolutions in these neck of the woods, for pretty obvious reasons: They don’t work. And the reason they don’t is also as obvious for anyone out there that can think. They don’t work because people put WAY too much into them. And when things become the biggest thing in the world, then people put pressure on themselves, and it’s very difficult to try to accomplish something if the weight of the world is on your shoulders. Luckily, there are quite a few resolutions out there that people can do that won’t kill them.
Which is why today we’re heading on over to AskMen.com where they have a listing of 10 of the most important health resolutions you can do for yourself in order to make 2014 the year of the ideal you. And, unlike a whole lot of the other ones out there, these are actually easy to accomplish if you just put a little effort into them.
Even if you can manage to keep up with the first resolution, sometimes even a good old roll in the hay isn’t enough to melt away your stress — and stress can be a killer. Chronic stress can lead to hypertension, a weakened immune system and even a shortened lifespan. Do your best to drop your stress. For example, enroll in a meditation class. Mindfulness meditation can give you the tools to deal with everyday challenges without letting them get you stressed. Many HMOs even offer mindfulness meditation classes for free, so check with your healthcare provider.
So head on over to check out the other advice from these fine gents.
