10 Articles To Read For A Healthy 2015

It’s that time of year when many of us think about “little” things we should change, things we want to do and enjoy more next year, or plans we have for the future.

It’s the time for New Year’s resolutions. Do you have your list?

What I learned from experience is that those “little” things we wish to change, those resolutions we make, usually relate to things we want to own, or our wishes, like to travel more, to redecorate our houses, or to learn another language. We realize there are the habits we should change, like not to be late all the time, or to be more organized. But what about bad eating habits? What about inadequate nutrition? Rarely we think about health and changes we could make.

The reason I decided to write about health resolutions came from a friend of mine, who made an interesting list that included eating more vegetables, cooking and eating at home, and replacing store-bought juices with freshly squeezed.

Below is the roundup of 10 articles that could prompt you to think about healthy diets and nutrition, inspiring you to make some healthy changes in your life next year.
