Get Active In The New Year

Getting up and getting moving is a critical component in any New Year’s resolution to get healthier.

Mike Paul is the Clinical Lead for Physical and Occupational Therapy at Wayne UNC Health Care.

He says you need to pick the right exercise to help you reach your goals.

Paul says age does make a difference in choosing a workout regime, but it shouldn’t be a deterrent.

If you haven’t been physically active for some time, Paul says don’t be aggressive when you start to exercise.

Paul says pedometers, Fitbits and smart watches can help you track your steps and heart rate throughout the day.

It’s also recommended you speak with a physician before beginning a new workout regimen.

The two-pronged approach to losing weight and feeling better in the New Year includes physical activity AND a nutritious diet.
