Three Health-Related New Year’s Resolutions to Make in 2021

Without a doubt this has been a challenging year, but January 1st is the perfect time to recommit to a healthy lifestyle. Make a resolution that’s good for you emotionally, mentally and physically. These tips are easy to commit to and offer a significant impact on your overall wellness.

1. Walk 30 Minutes Every Day
Walking is one of the easiest physical commitments you can make and has a significant impact on your cardiovascular health. Carve out small chunks of time throughout the day that will give you thirty minutes total.

2. Cut Back Alcohol Consumption
You don’t need to entirely give up enjoying a glass of red wine or mimosas at brunch. It’s time to cut back if you’re consuming more than three alcoholic beverages daily for women or four for men. Too much alcohol can lead to heart disease, hypertension, stroke, cancer and liver complications.

3. Schedule Annual Primary Care Appointment
Haven’t seen a primary care physician since 2016? You’re long overdue. Healthy adults should see a primary care physician annually. Dr. Salman S. Aly, MD. listens to patient’s concerns, addresses their needs and performs screenings based on personal medical history.

If what keeps you from making an annual wellness appointment is the hassle of taking time off from work, or a general dislike of doctor’s offices, consider Capital Internal Medicine Associates with two convenient locations in Sugar Land (832.886.4774) and Wharton (979.282.6151).  Visit for more information.
