Make your new year healthier

If you're like me, the resolution you made after eating grapes or black eyed peas have become a distant memory. Mine was to stop drinking too much wine. That didn't last. I don't even know why I made such a dumb resolution like that.

Austin Woman Magazine health contributor Jill Case offers twelve ways to make 2012 healthier rather than focusing on resolutions you may not be able to meet. You can read the full article HERE.
  1. Manage stress by incorporating stress-management techniques
  2. Have a meatless meal at least once a week
  3. Take breaks from sitting
  4. Exercise your pelvic muscles (this goes for men too)
  5. Work on personal relationships with friends and family
  6. Get sleep
  7. Get enough Vitamin D from supplements or brief sun exposure
  8. Do regular resistance training
  9. Apply sunscreen before going out in the sun
  10. Floss daily
  11. Start a gratitude journal
  12. Quit smoking and avoid second-hand smoke
