Don ’ t Quit Now , Find Time to Live Up to Your Resolution — Exercise More

Anew year marks a great time to embrace change . Many people do just that by making resolutions designed to improve their lives in the year and years ahead .

Resolutions regarding personal health are annually among the most popular changes people hope to make at the dawn of a new year . In fact , a quick scan of annual lists citing the most popular resolutions found that pledges to eat healthier and exercise more can be found at or near the top of such lists . Though such lists might not have been compiled using the most scientific of methods , it ’ s no secret that getting healthier and looking better is a goal many people strive for upon the arrival of January 1 .
Unfortunately , a 2015 report from U . S . News & World Report suggested that 80 percent of resolutions fail , oftentimes as early as February . For those who don ’ t just want but need to get healthier , failure to live up to a resolution to exercise more can have potentially devastating consequences .
If exercising more is a goal in the year ahead , the following are a few strategies to make that happen .
■ Exercise in the early morning . As the day progresses , unforeseen challenges or forgotten commitments have a way of devouring time initially earmarked for exercise . Exercise first thing in the morning before any commitments to work and family hijack the time you have committed to exercising .
■ Take on less responsibility . Professionals and parents often cite commitments to work and family as the primary reasons they aren ’ t getting enough exercise . While those are

Control and Prevention , ongoing exercise can reduce risk for cardiovascular disease , type 2 diabetes , metabolic syndrome , and some cancers . The CDC also notes that routine exercise strengthens bones and muscles while improving mood . Taking on more responsibility at work might be great for your career , but that may prove a Pyrrhic victory if your long-term health is jeopardized . Parents can discuss with their spouse how to better share responsibilities at home so both moms and dads can get regular exercise .
■ Embrace more efficient exercise routines . Rather than working a single muscle group at a time , which can be both timeconsuming and boring , men and women can adapt their workout routines to focus on multi-muscle exercises . Work with a personal trainer to make your workout as efficient as possible .
■ Schedule your routine each week . Each week is different , so while it may be ideal to establish a workout routine in which you exercise at the same time each day , that ’ s not always going to be possible . Failing to exercise on a day you had intended to workout can compromise your motivation to work out in the future , so sit down at the beginning of each week to examine your commitments for the days ahead and schedule times to exercise in the next seven days . This can keep you on track and help you avoid the disappointment of missing a workout because life got in the way .
Finding time to exercise is not always so easy , but even the busiest men and women can likely include workouts in their daily routines .

Carbon Monoxide Remediation

Carbon monoxide is a colorless , odorless gas that can be deadly . Because carbon monoxide is found in the fumes produced when fuel is burned , it is present in and around homes . As a result , homeowners should be aware of carbon monoxide and make every effort to detect its presence .

CO forms most readily when there is insufficient oxygen to complete combustion and produce carbon dioxide . Hot water closets , furnaces in crawlspaces , heating appliances in attics , and other contained areas are common areas where CO can form .
The U . S . Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that thousands of people visit emergency rooms and are hospitalized because of CO poisoning every year . While CO is a risk for just about anyone , infants , the elderly , those with breathing problems or chronic heart disease , and people with anemia are most likely to get sick from CO . CO has earned the moniker “ the silent killer ” because it cannot be identified without the presence of a carbon monoxide detector . If a person believes he or she is smelling carbon monoxide , that person is probably mistaking the odor for other combustion byproducts the nose can sense .
CO is a byproduct of vehicle exhaust , boat engines , stoves , lanterns , grills , furnaces , and fireplaces . CO is produced anytime something is burning . That is why it is essential that products designed to be used outdoors are used exclusively outside , and that indoor appliances are properly vented to the outdoors . CO can build up indoors and poison people and pets who breathe it in .
Some people may not recognize that CO is problematic in a home until multiple residents start complaining of similar symptoms . Common CO poisoning symptoms include nausea and vomiting , dizziness , chest pain , confusion , headache , and other flu-like symptoms , advises the consumer advocacy group Carbon Monoxide Kills . Those with repeated exposure to high levels of CO may eventually develop cerebral edema , which is a swelling of the brain . CO can compress brain cells and destroy them , leading to neurological issues and death . CO poisoning is actually the result of the head and heart not receiving sufficient oxygen .
CO detectors can save lives and should be installed in all homes and apartments . The National Fire Protection Association says CO detectors “ shall be centrally located outside of each separate sleeping area in the immediate vicinity of the bedrooms .”
