Your health is priceless. No amount of money can make up for poor health caused by unwise choices. Fortunately, you don’t ever have to go down that road if you decide now to make a change for the better. If you aren’t sure where to start, here are some ways you can build a plan for better health and a better you.

Make Healthy Lifestyle Changes

Before you can make lifestyle changes, you need to analyze areas that could use improvement. Be honest with yourself during this process, but don’t be too critical. Positivity will propel you toward greater health and happiness much quicker than negativity. Here are a few lifestyle change suggestions to get you started:

  • Receive regular physical exams to find out the status of your overall health
  • Add more vegetables to your diet
  • Cut back on sugary and processed foods
  • Drink more water
  • Make intentional movement part of your lifestyle
  • Start a strength-training program
  • Stop any type of substance abuse
  • Practice daily meditation, even if it’s only for a few minutes

While most of these suggestions focus on improving your physical condition, as you incorporate them into your life you should feel a natural mood boost as well. That’s because your mind and body are very connected and improvements to one generally improve the other.

Take Fitness Classes

Did you know most people tend to work out more consistently and vigorously in classroom settings? When you have support from others, it’s much easier to stick to a regular workout schedule. You can find a variety of fitness classes at Newport Medical and Wellness Center, including cardio workouts, strength training, roller/muscle tension release techniques and spine-strengthening classes. You can consult with a member of the physical therapy team to determine which class is most appropriate for your current fitness level and health goals.

Receive Preventative Care

Most people would agree that it’s better to prevent a problem from happening than it is to correct it after it’s already happened. Preventative care operates on this premise. Here are a few preventative care services Newport Medical and Wellness Center offers:

  • Immunizations
  • Physical exams
  • Echocardiograms
  • Hearing and vision screenings
  • Pap smears/well woman exams
  • ECG
  • Sports physicals
  • Routine lab tests

The type of preventative care you require depends on a variety of factors, including your current overall health, gender, age and genetics.

Taking care of your body and mind is the best way to achieve and maintain optimal health throughout life. Start implementing these changes today to reveal the healthier, improved you! We’re here to help you. Give us a call to schedule preventative care or to join a class today – 949-631-9009
