Yes, it is not a New Year to make yet another resolution (which, to be honest, we barely ever keep). So maybe it is a good time to set a goal and make each day of your life healthier and happier?
“Planning one perfect, healthy day will help you see what changes you need to make in order to bring better nutrition, more activity and peace of mind into your life on a regular basis.”- says Mark Stafford, M.D., a physician at the Kirklin Clinic at the University of Alabama-Birmingham.
This 10 steps schedule might looks very different from your typical day, so engage in some advance planning.
