Healthy Habits: Five Tips to Beat the Blues, Feel Better & Stay Healthy in 2016

Credit card bills, short days, plummeting temperatures and maybe even a few extra pounds from all those holiday celebrations and libations. According to a recent article in psychcentral.com, “studies show as many as 25 percent of Americans suffer from low-grade to full-blown depression after the holidays.”[1]. And then there is Blue Monday – the third Monday in January, believed to be the most depressing day of the year.
The fact is: the sun is out a bit longer each day and people are starting to think about spring, warm weather and bathing suit season. January is the month to actually take advantage and get ready for a new year. It's also “National Staying Healthy Month,” so here are five simple things everyone can do to feel healthier and spring into 2016:
  1. Walk, don't run. 
  2. Baby steps – take the stairs. 
  3. Eat fruit – consider freeze-dried fruit snacks when fresh fruit is not available. 
  4. Stay hydrated – water is best, but try some of the new natural beverages.
  5. Sit less – pace, stand, get a walking desk. Just don't sit.
