Happy New Year

Happy New Year

How were your holidays? I hope you had a relaxing time with your family and loved ones. If you were like me you ate more than your fair share of turkey dinner and goodies!

Fortunately, the New Year is upon us – time to make those resolutions or recommitments to get back to your regular healthy eating and exercise routine. Personally, I'm ready to get back on the health wagon,

and am looking forward to incorporating some new healthy foods and meals into my eating habits.

Another common New Year's resolution is to quit smoking. If this is something that you are considering – congratulations! Quitting smoking is one of the best things you can do for your health and well being. Recently, the Province announced that smoking cessation products like nicotine replacement gum or patches will be covered by PharmaCare, and British Columbians have been taking us up on our offer in droves. In fact, since the program launched, more than 60,000 British Columbians have called for help quitting smoking.

I encourage you to make this commitment to yourself and your family too – what better time than the beginning of a new year!? To learn more about this program, call HealthLink BC at 8-1-1 or visit QuitNow.ca.

What are your 2012 New Year's resolutions?
