NorthShore’s online source for timely health and wellness news, inspiring patient stories and tips to lead a healthy life.

How many times have you vowed to “live healthier” in the new year, then had the vow fall to the wayside because it felt too big to tackle?
We’ve all been there. The thing is, living healthier doesn’t require a full-fledged lifestyle overhaul. Even if you feel your current lifestyle is (ahem) less than healthy.
We asked physicians, dietitians, fitness trainers and mental health experts for their top tips to live healthier, and you may be surprised by the simplicity.
The thing to remember is that you don’t have to incorporate every tip at once. If there’s an area you’d like to change, try that first. Gradually introducing healthier habits can be a slow process, but that’s how you’ll make it stick.
Choose a realistic, achievable goal (be honest with yourself), then track your progress.
1. Eat healthier
2. Exercise more
3. Practice self-care
