We all know that physical exercise is good for you and your body. Moderate exercise is beneficial for almost every person at all ages of their life.

You can go too far, of course, and people often do just that. So make sure you seek out professional advice before you find yourself in the new year trying to do too much too soon.

It is generally a great idea to make a goal or resolution in the new year regarding losing weight or getting into better shape. Exercise can be a part of that goal, and probably should be, but it shouldn’t be the only goal.

There are other things that factor into your health besides exercise. Those include the foods that you eat so make sure you are always examining what you eat and drink every day.

Do you skip meals and then eat too much later on? Or do you eat too much junk food? Make sure you check in with yourself regarding these matters.

Now remember, your body is important but make sure that you don’t forget about your mind. That brain of yours needs exercise too. What, wait a minute, how is it even possible to do that?

The brain needs stimulation and variety, especially as you get older. You really need to give it something to do so it doesn’t get lazy and weak.

What exercises can you give the brain?

  • Word searches
  • Puzzles
  • Learning a new language
  • Using maps
  • Going down new streets
  • Building something

The new year is almost upon us. If you have some resolutions, make sure to stay committed to them. Include physical exercise for sure. In addition, find something new for your brain and mind to do so it can keep busy and stay vibrant.
