Medical County HospitalBelieve it or not, even your favorite Putnam family doctors don’t want you in a hospital unless you really have to visit. If one of your top resolutions this year is to lead a healthier lifestyle, then there are some habits you’ll need to quit today. Putnam County Hospital lists some of them:

Lying to your doctor

Everyone has told their family doctor a few white lies at some point, whether it’s about how much they exercise or how many units of alcohol they consume. The bad news is that failing to tell your doctor the whole truth (or lying to them regarding anything) is the most foolish thing you can do. Unless your physician knows what’s actually going on, how can they give you the right advice to keep you healthy for the longest time?

Imitating your friends

So your friends have been talking about this wonderful diet program or fitness regime, and you feel like you can’t afford to be left out. Stop right there. No two people are the same, and just because they are waxing lyrical about their latest regime doesn’t mean that it’s good for you too. You need to find what works for you as an individual and not get carried away by the latest fads.

Neglecting your mental health

Many people think that as long as they’re in good physical health, all is well. But did you know that a significant number of people suffer mental health problems every year? It’s absolutely important that you care for your mental health too. Don’t ignore those feelings of sadness, stress, or anxiety. Talk to someone, especially when you start to feel overwhelmed.

Achieving peak health sounds like a distant dream for most people, but it’s a lot easier than you may have thought. A few lifestyle changes are sometimes all you need to lead a healthier, happier life.
