Did you resolve to get healthier this New Year? If so, you aren’t alone!

According to an INSIDER poll the majority of respondents said they planned to make 2019 resolutions that were health-related.

But what does getting healthy mean? And what does it actually take to get healthy?

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), health is “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being.”

In this article on health by MedicalNewsToday, the steps for maximizing our health are more than diet and exercise.  Being healthy also included: learning to manage stress, engaging in activities that provide purpose and connection to others, maintaining a positive outlook and appreciating what you have, and defining a value system (and putting it into action).

I believe that the greatest gift you can give your family and the world is a healthy you.
