Healthy Resolutions For The New Year

Updated: Feb 12, 2023

Struggling to come up with goals for 2023? The American Medical Association has a list of recommendations to promote a healthier version of you in 2023! Here are what the experts are suggesting you do this year to improve your health and wellness:





Boost exercise and manage stress

  • Aim to complete 150-300 minutes a week of moderate-intensity aerobic exercise or 75-150 minutes a week of vigorous-intensity aerobic exercise a week, and at least 2 days of strengthening exercises a week.

  • Manage your stress with eating healthy, at least 7.5 hours of quality sleep each night, and wellness activities such as yoga and meditation. Seek help from a mental health professional when you need it.


Limit processed foods and sugary drinks

  • Eat fewer processed foods and sugar-sweetened beverages, especially those with added sodium and sugar. Eat more plant-based foods, such as olive oil, nuts and seeds.

  • Drink water in place of sugar-sweetened beverages. Did you know 100% fruit juices are associated with a higher all-cause mortality risk?


Consider limiting alcohol consumption and quit smoking

  • It is recommended to not consume more than one drink per day for women and two for men.

  • Talk with your doctor on how to quit if you use tobacco or e-cigarettes.


Schedule health screenings

  • Pandemic-related care disruptions are suspected to have missed millions of cases of breast, colon, and prostate cancers.


Know your risk of diabetes and know your blood pressure numbers

  • Know your blood pressure numbers. You can better understand what’s right for you by visiting ManageYourBP.org. Your blood pressure may be higher when at a doctors office, so taking it regularly at home is extremely helpful and may be more accurate.

  • Visit DoIHavePrediabetes.org to learn about your risk for type 2 diabetes. There are many lifestyle factors that can be changed to reduce your risk.
