Jump-Start Your Health
This time every year, many people suggest that we do a show on making and keeping resolutions. I wondered how to make such a familiar topic interesting for our viewers. But in talking with my co-workers I discovered that we shared many concerns - dealing with the stress of coming back to work, getting back to healthy eating after splurging over the holidays and getting organized.
This isn't cutting-edge medical news, but it's what many of us need -- a little help getting our lives back on track. So whether you've resolved to make changes or you're just trying to get back to normal, I hope this weekend's show will help you jump-start your new year. Our guest, Dr. Howard Shapiro, has some great advice on that front: "It is a journey, it is a process" but he says, as long as you stay focused on your target, you will succeed.
Do you have a health goal this week, month or year? If so, how are you planning to stay focused?
House Call airs weekend mornings at 8:30 ET.
