How to Be Healthy in 2022

You’ve probably read that you’re less likely to become seriously ill with COVID-19 if you’re young, healthy, and not overweight. Now, there’s nothing you can do to turn back the clock, of course, and you shouldn’t worry about what you can’t control. What you can do is become more proactive about eating a balanced diet and making time for thirty to sixty minutes of exercise five to seven days a week. It doesn’t mean you have to swear off dessert completely (especially with Valentine’s Day approaching!) or live at the gym if that’s not your cup of tea. It’s all about pushing yourself to be just one percent better every day, whether that’s by skipping the sugar in your coffee or taking a quick walk at lunchtime.

Your Partner: The Best Workout Buddy!

Do you ever find it easier to do something for someone you care about than for yourself? I don’t quite understand this about myself, but I find that I’m more motivated to make positive changes in my life when it benefits someone I love — like my husband. When I’m feeling tired and lazy (which, I’ll admit, is fairly often as a working mom!), I feel more motivated to work out when I know he’ll join me. I like to go for long walks, but I get bored and lonely on my own. Having someone to chat with makes me forget that I’m exercising, and it’s also a great opportunity for us to enjoy some screen-free time together.

Setting Fitness Goals Together

If you and your partner have been talking about your need to improve your diet and exercise regimen, there’s no time like the present to get moving. You can start by choosing and planning meals, going food shopping, and cooking together. Check out some of these easy and healthy dinner ideas from Delish, like chicken parm stuffed peppers, skinny Alfredo, and honey walnut shrimp. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by how easy it is to prepare delicious meals that are good for you, too.
