It’s that time when San Diegans start to focus on a healthy start to the New Year.

Regardless of what resolutions you make, the goal is to make positive changes.

Although a popular choice like living healthier through the year is great, how can you do that?

If you have a plan, and a coach or support from someone you trust, it makes success that much easier.

Regular exercise. Drinking more water. Adding fresh fruits and whole grains can keep your body healthy. Making sure you get your flu shot and knowing your numbers!

Whether it’s eating healthy, adopting a pet or getting out in your community there is something out there for you!

  • • Get more exercise in by hiking trails at ourCounty parks.

What are some simple steps to take that will help you get moving in the right direction?

Checking your mental health is equally important. Taking time to relax, reducing stress or beginning your day with easy meditation techniques.

NAMI San Diego has some great APPS available for free download that have guided meditations, helpful resources, education and more. Available on iOS, Android and Windows platforms, oscER will give you information, resources and peace of mind.
