American Medical Association suggests 2006 New Yearís Resolutions

New Year 2006

Thinking about what you would like to do different next year.  Havenít thought much about making a resolution yet?  The American Medical Association has released a list of 5 things that you can resolve to do in 2006 to improve your quality of life.

1. Make healthy lifestyle choices

This includes eating a well-balanced diet (eat your fruits and vegetables). Stay away from tobacco and excessive drinking.  Exercise daily, but always see your doctor first before starting any new regimen.

2.  Be prepared for disaster

In the event of a disaster like Hurricane Katrina make sure you have a plan ready in case something happens to your family.  Make sure you have an emergency supply kit store in a safe, dry place.  Keep those important documents including medical prescriptions with dosages along with serial numbers of any medical devices such as a pacemaker.  Have a method set up for how you will contact all the people in your family.


3. Make an advance directive with family members

A living will can spell out any end of life care planning and spells out who has the final say and what to do if anything does happen.

4.  Learn all you can about Medicare prescription drug plan if you or someone you know needs to sign up.

Medicare prescription drug plans became available, creating a confusion long winded process for seniors.  If you or someone that you know need to get the Medicare prescription drug plan figured out, the deadlines are in May.

5. Try to use common sense when it comes to the Flu

Make sure to get rest and wash your hands.  Try not to touch your eyes and nose to get the flu.  The annual flu season peaks in February.  Get a flu shot if you have not already done so.

"These resolutions are simply a few of the things you can do to make positive, healthy lifestyle changes. In 2006, you can continue to look to the AMA and the AMA Web site for a wide range of public health information. And without question, you should continue to turn to your physician to provide the highest quality of care for you and your family," said AMA President J. Edward Hill, MD.
