It is a new year so it is the perfect time to reflect on the difference between where you are and where you want to be. Making resolutions and keeping them is no easy task. One of the most common resolutions—getting healthy—also happens to be one of the hardest to achieve. By following a few simple tips, though—and making the most of your health insurance coverage in the coming months—2020 can be the best year yet.
5 Tips for Making the Most of 2020
1. Track Progress
The best New Year’s resolutions are clearly defined, reasonable, and achievable. Establish check-in points. For example, commit to losing a certain number of pounds by a specified date to make it easier to track your progress. Additionally, seeing and quantifying these minor improvements will motivate you to keep the transformation going over the long run.
2. Try New Activities and Eat Healthy
If you resolved to trim down or tone up, you will have to start a new fitness program. However, people can often grow bored of completing the same steps day-in and day-out. Mix it up by trying some new classes, exercising outdoors or finding an activity the whole family can participate in. Furthermore, experiment with your healthy meal plan. Eating the same dishes over and over will leave you unsatisfied, which can lead to binging. Try at least one new recipe per week and let yourself have a cheat meal now and then. Fill your fridge and pantry with healthy options.
3. Want to see 20/20 in 2020?
Get an eye exam to make sure your eyes are healthy and that you are seeing at your best. Is it time for new glasses or contacts?

4. Healthy Smile
Start the year off right, with a dental cleaning and x-rays to help achieve a healthy and sparkling smile. Western States Insurance offers individual dental plans from Delta Dental. Individual plans for dental are available anytime. You do not have to wait for open enrollment to purchase them. Call for quotes. The application takes less than five minutes. (Waiting periods may apply with dental insurance.)
5. Review Your Health Insurance Coverage
Health insurance providers know that policyholders who prioritize preventive care are less likely to require costly treatments and procedures. Therefore, most policies cover wellness exams and vaccinations at regular intervals. Review the terms of your health insurance policy, and schedule every recommended screening.
