Take a walk for good health

2. Get moving.

If you don’t regularly hit the gym, it may be overwhelming to start. Pick something that sounds fun, like a dance class, or keep it simple: a 30-minute walk after dinner is a painless way to squeeze in a few more steps. Little changes can add up to big improvements in your health.

Make sleep a priority

3. Improve your sleep hygiene.

Sleep hygiene? Yes, it’s an important practice in our increasingly connected world. To get a good night’s sleep, cut screen use (phone, TV, laptop) in bed, limit naps, and establish a relaxing nighttime routine.[1]

Give up smoking

4. Kick bad habits.

Whether you’re trying to quit smoking, mindless snacking, or procrastinating, now’s a great time to start. There’s often strength in numbers: get support from a friend or group with the same goal.

Mindfulness boosts the memory

5. Practice mindfulness.

Mindfulness has been a hot topic in recent years, and that’s in large part because the associated health benefits are many—from decreased stress to increased focus.[1] Yoga and meditation are two ways to cultivate mindfulness, but crafts, such as knitting, can also help.[2]
