Resolutions That Stick for 2020
A new year means new beginnings, and for many, it can come with a list of resolutions. Some might be small daily goals, others, lifelong wishes. Whatever your list may be, make sure to choose ones that are realistic for your health and lifestyle. If you are looking for a few kidney-friendly decisions that everyone can keep, here are a few to consider:
Stand Up Every 30 Minutes
Getting up and standing every thirty minutes is excellent for blood flow and may improve your kidney health, too. If you sit all day, set a timer, and get up every hour and take a stroll around. In no time, it will become a new healthy habit.
Get More Rest
A lack of sleep leads to weight gain, memory issues, and other health concerns. Make 2020 the year you stick to a bedtime. By going to bed each night at the same time, and waking each morning at the same time, you’ll get the proper rest; you need to feel healthy and strong all day long.
Don’t Skip Meals
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Eating often regulates blood sugar, keeps you energized, and can keep you at a healthy weight and reduce your chance for overeating.
Keep Up Medical Appointments
Preventive care is a must. It’s never too late to start going to wellness visits and becoming familiar with your doctors. Talk to your physician about your health options and take active steps to make 2020 the year you feel your best.
If your 2020 resolution is to get more time back in your day, talk to your Satellite Healthcare social worker about your dialysis options. For many, home dialysis can give them the flexibility they need for a more active life.
