Pick one and do your best to cut back or eliminate the habit altogether. If you’re trying to quit smoking, don’t hesitate to speak with your doctor for tips on how to succeed.

Schedule Time for Hobbies

Working high-pressured jobs or long hours can add to stress, leading to insomnia, high blood pressure and other conditions. Make relaxation a priority.

Schedule a block of time each day to do something you love or take the full weekend off and away from work whenever possible. Reducing your stress levels will help improve and maintain your health.

Get Exercise

Exercising for 30 minutes each day can help improve cardiovascular health, reduce stress, encourage good sleep habits and even help you lose weight. You don’t have to head to a gym or pay for expensive fitness classes to start getting in shape.

Simply put your sneakers on and take a walk outdoors, play with your kids or ride a bike. Do something you enjoy so you can keep up with it throughout the year.
