It’s April and New Year’s Resolution days are long behind us. The good news is you don’t have to wait for a new year to start some healthy habits. You can start any time!  Try adding some healthy habits to your daily life that could improve your health – and you can start today.  It’s as easy as doing one or two things differently every day to build healthy habits to take better care of yourself.

Here are a few healthy habits you might try:

  1. Save your skin. Don’t wait for summer to start applying sunscreen. Sunscreen isn’t just for hot summer days before we hit the beach or pool. Commitment to sun safety should really be year-round. Do you skip it because applying sunscreen can take too long to absorb, or because it leaves an unwanted residue? That’s why Coppertone made ClearlySheer Whippedand WaterBabies Whipped. Both absorb quickly, leave skin hydrated and provide SPF 50 protection from UVA/UVB rays so you and your family can stay protected all year round.
  2. Go play outside!. As it gets nicer outside, it gets easier to keep (or restart) your New Year’s resolution to be more active. You don’t need a gym or to do strenuous activity. Walk around your neighbourhood, catch the blooming cherry blossoms or go on a hike. In Vancouver, we know how to do cherry blossoms! If you do strain your muscles, treat your pain with ALEVE Back & Body Pain. One pill gives you up to 12 hours of relief from muscle pain, body pain and headaches. Feel better – try to warm up first to avoid injury.
  3. Take time to meditate. If you don’t have time to meditate, that might be a sign you really need to. It only takes a few minutes a day to practice meditation and focus your mind. There are many kinds of meditation and apps you can use to get started. Meditation can help center you before the day begins, or after a long day.
  4. Pay attention to your body. When you’re busy taking care of other people, it’s easy to ignore obvious symptoms of our body telling us something is off. Many ailments can be treated early and at home so listen up when your body starts to let you know something’s up! A common example for women is Bacterial Vaginosis (BV). BV affects so many women, but it’s easy to ignore symptoms like abnormal discharge or an unpleasant odour when life gets busy. CanesBalance is an easy and effective at-home treatment that can relieve unwanted symptoms and prevent future recurrences.

Spring has sprung, and it is beautiful here on the West Coast. I hope you’ll join me in adopting new healthy habits as the weather warms and days get longer. Tell me what habit you’d like to add to your routine.
