Get help to stop smoking
Quitting smoking is a challenge worth taking to improve the length and quality of your life. Getting the right mix of help on your journey to kick the habit can be the key to your success. For most individuals, quitting requires support, coping strategies and medication. Northwell Health offers tobacco prevention, education, cessation services to help overcome your nicotine dependence.

Schedule time for exercise during the holidays
Planning family get-togethers, shopping for holiday meals and decorating the house for festivities all require time and energy. With everything there is to do, it might be hard to make time for exercise. But keeping a set schedule for exercise, even during the holidays, can make a dramatic difference in how you feel throughout the season. A 20-minute walk or a 30-minute exercise class a few times a week can make a positive impact.

Make it a healthier Thanksgiving
When you consider that the average Thanksgiving dinner has 3,000 calories and 229 grams of fat, it only makes sense to swap out a few of the high calories dishes with those that are both flavorful and healthy. Instead of sweet potatoes covered in marshmallows, mashed potatoes and green bean casserole, consider healthier options like sautéed butternut squash, roasted fingerling potatoes and steamed green beans.
