10 ways to stay healthy in 2014

At Harmony Point Acupuncture we are committed to your good health!

Here 10 health suggestions for the new year:

  1. Drink tap water: bottled water contains many harmful chemicals
  2. Eat fresh cooked vegetables: raw vegetables are hard to digest
  3. Stay warm: cold is the root of many diseases
  4. Walk for 15 to 30 minutes a day: the very best exercise!
  5. Get a good night’s sleep: keep regular sleep hours
  6. Take some quiet time: nurture yourself
  7. Spend time in nature: recharge with sun and fresh air
  8. Connect with other people: positive interactions
  9. Do something creative: dance, draw, sing, create!
  10. Count your blessings: gratitude is the key to joy!
