I know there is still time left before 2016 is over.
However we will be ringing in 2017 before we know it.
While many may be working on their to-do lists for the 2016 holidays, it is also time to begin thinking ahead for 2017 as well.
As the New Year begins to draw closer, I am aware that many will start to think in terms of resolutions for the New Year ahead.
Most (myself included) think in terms of mental and physical health for resolutions. As in, I personally would like to feel healthier both mentally and spiritually, too.
Therefore, I am happily dishing some simple and easy resolutions to being healthier in 2017 and beyond below for us all:
1.Turning off mobile devices more.
Let’s face it, in this day and age; mobile devices seem to be the norm. With these devices, it is very easy to stay connected at all times. But sometimes, for our own mental well being shutting down our devices or even simply logging off social media for short periods of time can help to create a healthier environment for yourself. Want to learn how to do this? Then read about how to shut down socially here.
2.Sleeping more and/or better this new year.
This one may be easier said than done, but honestly sleep is something that we all need. So, making a conscious effort to make more time for it, as well as bettering your sleep habits should go along way to helping create a healthier you in the upcoming year.
3.Make more time to workout more.
I know this is probably one of the top New Year’s resolutions for many. Why? Because working out and exercising is a great way to help get and stay healthy.
4.Eat healthier after the holiday feasting concludes.
It is true that holiday eating isn’t always the best or most healthy either. But as the new year begins, now is the perfect time to get a handle on your diet by making sure to eat healthier and more sensibly.
5.Have more fun in 2017.
Make time to enjoy life simply. This could be making time to do more fun activities inside and outside the home with your family or even enjoying some fun alone time, such as reading a book, catching up on your DVR, or writing in your journal.
6.Getting wise about your own health insurance.
All of the above are indeed ways to get and stay healthy in the upcoming year. But health insurance is also a vital and essential component in protecting your health, as well as your family’s for the year to come.
I, for one, am truly so thankful that we are members of Anthem for our own family.
Finding the perfect health insurance for your family is a huge component for those looking to stay healthy. Moreover still, it is so very important that we all better understand all the resources available to you with health insurance choices.
That is why Anthem would like all to be aware and know that right now is open enrollment season, which is the annual period when you can pick a new health insurance plan. This can further help plot out your health for 2017 and beyond.
Plus, Anthem has support resources available to help all navigate their options during this upcoming open enrollment season and find a plan that is a good fit for you.
Take a look at the following infographic below to shed some more light on health insurance, as well as the open enrollment period:
