The Year of the Green Wooden Rooster is upon us. At the stroke of midnight on the 9th of February 2005, the Chinese New Year will be celebrated. Since the year of the Rooster is about to commence, wouldn’t it be nice to have some health resolutions for a healthy Chinese New Year?

When you have a never-ending to-do list in today’s fast-paced world, you are becoming busier than ever. Therefore, many other things are dropped down on your priority list. Usually, one of the first ones to drop in the list is health. This should never be the case.

There are a lot of creative ways to help keep you in peak condition. Below are some suggested health resolutions to help you get started:
1. Exercise. Exercise offers so many important benefits that it should always be a part of one’s weekly routine. The benefits of regular exercise include a reduced risk of heart disease, stroke, bowel cancer, breast cancer, osteoporosis, and obesity. In addition to feeling better, regular exercise can help ease stress, anxiety and mild depression.

2. Have a healthy diet. Eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables daily. A healthy diet helps prevent or reduce the severity of diseases such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and can also help reduce the risk of some cancers.

3. Put together a good health care team. This includes a dentist, a nutritionist & a medical doctor to help you keep in shape from head to toe.

4. Get enough sleep. At least six up to eight hours a night will do.

5. Quit smoking and drink alcoholic beverages moderately.

6. Drink at least eight glasses of water everyday. Ever feel sluggish? Based on researches, lack of water is the number one trigger of daytime fatigue.

7. Take time everyday to do something you enjoy. Read, paint/draw, dance, cook, talk to a friend, etc.

8. Feed your soul. People may be healthy physically but the spiritual health should never be forgotten.

As the saying goes, “prevention is better than cure and health is wealth.” Whether it is Chinese New Year or not, taking good care of your health is an all-year round obligation that should not be taken for granted. Kung Hei Fat Choi!
