Three health tips you should consider for 2015

As the clock ticks and we approach the New Year, many Jamaicans are elated and fired up, knowing that they have another chance to pursue and achieve all their aspirations that did not materialized in 2014. With that said, the team from Jamaica Health Tips Online would like to share with you Three health tips you should make a part of your New Year’s resolution list.
  • Make physical activity a lifestyle: Many will agree that losing weight is one of the top five items on a New Year’s resolution list.  On the contrary, the will power to maintain it fades in the distance rather quickly and then we are back to square one. Do not exercise to lose weight but to be healthy. According to the American Heart Association, thirty minutes a day for three days a week is good enough to maintain a health heart.  This may simply include walking on the spot, while watching your favorite show for three, ten minutes intervals.  Note, exercise should not be a burden but rather a desire, so do what you like.


  • Maintain healthy relationships/friendships: It has been said that if you should live to see age seventy, approximately sixty years of your life will be spent sleeping and working (24 years and 35 year respectively). Hence, have you ever wonder how you are living your life? While you cannot control the actions of others, you can control yours. Try to be honest, generous and loving not just with family members, your partner and friends but each person you come in contact with. If a problem arises in the relationship, focus on the solution and not the problem.  In contrast, there are some relationships that maybe considered toxic, unhealthy and harmful to your emotional well-being. If after trying all possible means to make ends meet and you still have not been able to make it work. You may need to let it go, but always be open and quick to forgive when the person is ready.

  • Maintain a clean and safe environment: Did you know that pollution is one of the biggest killers, affecting over 100 million persons worldwide? With all the new and emerging disease and other implications affecting our generation today, it’s imperative that we try to keep our surrounding clean and safe. The Atmosphere and the environment are there to protect us, so if we neglect it, then in time to come we will face dire implication. So as you ring in the New Year, reflect on these things. We wish you a Happy and Healthy New Year.                                                      ...


Do you think it’s important to make New Year’s resolution?

Hi Lorna so while I appreciate the health tips can we see regular updates like meal plans and exercise routines. There has being an increase in women wearing waist trainers. Are these healthy and do medical practitioners recommend the use of this product, if not can you share some healthy tips in helping women achieving that hour glass look.
