As we head into the last evening of 2013, we are reminded of a
wonderful year. And, of course, of the things we want to do
differently next year. So, here are five easy tips on being a
healthier you in 2014.
Eat healthy. Fad diets don't work and neither does skipping
meals. Try to maintain a healthy weight with vegetables, fruits,
lean meats and lots of exercise.
Get some sleep. That doesn't mean catching up on the weekends.
Get to bed at a regular time every day, including Saturdays. Don't
stay up too late or sleep to late. A regular sleep schedule can
make a world of difference in how you feel every day.
Find some peace. It is easy to get stressed, but it is also okay
to give yourself a break. An activity like reading, yoga, running
or singing can help you relax. Take some time off for yourself,
even if it's just a few minutes. Or if you can, enjoy a whole week
off. Your brain and body will thank you and you might even find
yourself happier and better at concentrating.
Hydrate. Drinking water is good for your body in a ton of ways,
from keeping you full between meals to keeping your skin and hair
healthy. And if you work long, tough days on the farm, hydrating is
key. Grab a water bottle and keep it with you. Your body will thank
Make friends. Friends are there to support you through bad and
good times. Make a new connection or focus on an old one. If you
need life advice, who better to ask than a fellow farmer! Looking
