Yay! New Year 2022 is almost here! A time to celebrate with friends, relatives, and loved ones. Parties, dance, social gatherings, drinks, music, lots of yummy food, and whatnot. People come together to watch the beautiful fireworks, make resolutions and try new activities.
However, it is also around that period when we pay minimal attention (sometimes unknowingly) to our health amidst excitement and celebration.
Moreover, who has got the bandwidth to detail out everything? We have got you covered. Read on.
Be health-S.M.A.R.T this New Year
Celebrations are incomplete without delicious food, so we tend to party outdoors or indulge in fried snacks and junk food.
While some people decorate their entire table with treats, some fear gaining weight and avoid snacking altogether. Some will exercise excessively after feeling guilty for having so much. You might also skip your workout or self-care routine to spend some more time with guests or loved ones.
The key to taking care of yourself is to strike a balance. Nevertheless, how to be S.M.A.R.T (SPECIFIC, MEASURABLE, ACHIEVABLE, RELEVANT, AND TIME-BOUND)? Simple. Start tracking your health metrics. These tools/trackers might help you:
Tools to enhance health this New Year: Importance of tracking health metrics
#1. Fitness App/Tracker
Regular exercise is a lifesaver. If you have fitness essentials at home, that is a cherry on the top. Being active can improve your eyesight and bone density, maintain your body mass, balance blood pressure, boost lean muscles, and minimize cholesterol. Fitness apps help you keep track of your fitness level and guide you via workout sessions/tips/plans that you can refer to achieve your goals. What could be better than that!
#2. Calorie Counter
A food scale or diet/nutrition app assists in calculating calories and managing portions more precisely. Whether you're looking to increase daily carbohydrates and calories or want to shed a few pounds, it allows you to track your normal calorie intake to reach a certain body goal.
#3. Water Tracker
Often taken lightly, staying hydrated is indispensable for maintaining good body and health function. Water flushes impurities, improves gut health, prevents build-up, balances body temperature, and energizes your muscles. The water applications will not only remind you to drink water but will also keep the track of water consumption in a day.

Savor worry-free celebration time
What you don't know can cost you! Health Risk Assessment (HRA) is a health questionnaire for assessing health risks and quality of life. They are beneficial as they help raise awareness of the dangers and help identify if you are at risk for lifestyle-related diseases.
Take up the health risk assessment via The Wellness Corner app. Once you have the report, you will be better able to decide what to do during the celebration without worrying about potential health consequences.
In a nutshell
Sickness, stress, and rushing around can hamper the celebration fun. Whether it is a New Year's party or an ordinary day, self-tracking allows you to stick to a healthier diet, exercise more, and sleep better. Lastly, good health (physical as well as mental) is above any wealth and one who has this luxury, can make the most during any celebration.
We wish you a Happy New Year!
