Each year, Americans’ most popular New Year’s resolutions are more or less the same: get healthy, get organized, save money. But doctors at the American Medical Association (AMA) have some more specific thoughts in mind for 2019.
The AMA this week released a list of 10 wellness-focused resolutions that could “help Americans make the most impactful, long-lasting improvements to their health in 2019.” Here’s what they are — and how to make them happen.
- Learn your risk for type 2 diabetes
- Be more physically active
- Know your blood pressure
- Eat less processed food
- Take antibiotics exactly as prescribed
- Drink in moderation, if at all
- Stop using nicotine and tobacco
- Don’t share pain medicine
