Research shows that Americans
spend 11 hours a day on average
interacting with computers, tablets
and smartphones. So when it comes
to screen time, dare to be different
and practice moderation. "Technology
is not all bad; it keeps us connected
to friends, and fitness apps can help
you get more exercise. But too much
screen time can also negatively affect
your self-esteem, relationships,
productivity and physical activity,"
Amsellem says.
Her suggestion is to spend a few
days writing down what you're doing
and how long you're spending online.
"Maybe you've just spent an hour on
social media and totally lost track of
time; that's something to notice."

When you're weighing options about
food, relationships or something else,
Amsellem suggests making choices
that honor your goals and values.
"Maybe you're tempted to eat a plate
of cookies, but you can pause and ask
yourself, 'How will I feel after this?'"
she says. "Or if you're dating someone
new, you might ask, 'Does this feel like
my idea of a healthy relationship?' "
One way to connect with your core
beliefs is to start a journal. "There's a
lot that comes from paying attention
to yourself," Amsellem says.

Healthy People
Eat Fiber, Too

It's important to eat fiber
every day, but a whopping
95 percent of Americans
don't get enough of the recommended daily amount.
That's 25 grams for women
and 38 for men; for reference,
a cup of raspberries has
about 8 grams of fiber, and
a slice of whole-wheat bread
has 2 grams.
This key nutrient has
several health benefits.
It helps you feel full. "The
fiber in fruits and vegetables
is bulky, leaving less room
for foods that add unwanted
calories," says Tasha Temple,
a nutrition consultant and
diabetes care and education
specialist for the Diabetes &
Nutrition Education Center at
Northside Hospital.
It can aid digestion.
Foods such as whole-wheat
bread, brown rice and green
leafy vegetables are rich in
insoluble fiber. These foods
make stool bulkier and
easier to pass.
It lowers blood sugar and
cholesterol. Soluble fiber is
found in foods like oatmeal,
beans and carrots.

An App
for Habits

10

It's important to always follow your doctor's recommendations when it comes
to prescriptions, especially if you have a
chronic condition. Poor medication adherence, defined as not having medicine on
hand at least 80 percent of the time, has
been linked with higher death rates and
more money spent on emergency department visits and hospitalizations.

Streaks, a habit-tracking
app available in the Apple
App Store and on Google
Play, allows you to choose
any habit (think flossing
your teeth or practicing
plank pose) and set reminders. After a few days, the
app creates a visual chain-
skip a day, and it breaks-to
keep you motivated.
