Healthy New Year

New Year Goals

Your health is important any time of year, but there's nothing like setting New Year's goals!

HEALTH GOALS TO CONSIDER:

Choose a Medical Home

  • Get the right care at the right place at the right time. If you don't have one, choose your medical home! A medical home provides comprehensive, continuous medical care to you and your family with the goal of achieving the best health outcomes. 

Quit Smoking

  • Call 1-800-QUIT-NOW (1-800-784-8669) or visit quitnow.net/dc to get the FREE help you need to quit and stay quit.

Eat Healthy

Get Moving

  • Being physically active can improve your health — today, tomorrow, and in the future. Move Your Way provides guidelines for people of all ages to get moving and keep moving towards a healthy, active lifestyle.

Keep Calm

  • Meditation is not a replacement for conventional care, but it can enhance your overall health and well-being. It can help keep you calm and relax if you're experiencing stress, anxiety, depression, chronic pain, high blood pressure, and certain psychological disorders. The DC Department of Behavioral Health has a 24/7 Access HelpLine at 1(888)7WE-HELP or 1-888-793-4357. It is the easiest way to get connected to right services.

Have a happy and healthy new year, DC!
