4 Ways to Start 2018 off Right

The New Year is a time to refresh. It’s a time for starting new goals or re-starting old goals. No matter what you’re striving for in 2018, we’ve compiled a list of 4 ways to make sure this next year is off to a great start!

1. Set Goals

Setting and achieving goals will keep you thriving all the way through 2018. Starting with small attainable goals, such as doing your exercises for 10 minutes a day, will keep you focused without overdoing it.

Tip- Once you’ve completed your original goal, add on to it as times goes on to see how far you can get in a year!

2. Eat Healthier

Eating good, nutritional food is essential for overall health and well-being. And it’s not just about losing, gaining, or staying at a certain weight. Eating better will give you more energy to keep you going throughout the day. A well-balanced diet is the key to cutting down on fatigue and keeping illnesses away- especially in the long, cold winter months!

3. Be Prepared

As we grow older, we become more aware of the unexpected surprises life may throw our way. As day-to-day tasks become more difficult, it is important to not risk health and longevity for medial tasks. In-home care is available for anyone who is needing a little extra help in their home. Whether it be cooking, cleaning, transportation, or bathing, a caregiver can be there to assist.

You can also look into additional safety measures such as an electronic caregiver. This device can be worn as a bracelet or necklace and serve as an alert system in case of emergencies. You and your loved ones will feel comfort in knowing there is added safety and support in your life.

4. Get Involved

Whether you live in a house, apartment, or assisted living facility, getting involved in community events around you is helpful for both social interaction and stress-relief. If you’re in the Sioux Falls area, here is a great website for local clubs and activities to participate in: http://activegenerations.org/activities-clubs/
