The New Year is traditionally a time to initiate change. Weight loss, giving up smoking and starting an exercise regime are three common resolutions. With each year we all get a year older. I tell my patients to never complain about getting old. The alternative is worse (not getting old…). Preventative health is all about maximising longevity and quality of life. New years resolutions are also usually aimed at improving ourselves personally. Take this opportunity to make change, but more importantly make it last the whole year. From all of us here at edoc.net we hope you are having a safe and enjoyable festive season and wish you all the very best of health in 2019.
