Henderson-Hughes Health Partners (H3P) created Amplify Your Expertise to inform you, our readers about little know health issues. We apologize for the inconsistency through the years and look forward to being back on track in 2017.
2016 as with any other years has seen many deaths but the ones that are getting noticed are those of celebrity. It has many wanting to fast forward to the new year. However if they were to think seriously about the request, they would know that deaths will come in the new year too. The sad part is that people are missing the depression that comes with the lost of a loved one. We as fans do feel a loss of a celebrity but not in the sense of those in the personal circle. Their void is much different that those of the fans. They knew them before the world did. Shared the struggle before the lime-lights shined on them. The regular people who choose to stand on the sidelines and applaud. We do the same for our families just with no notoriety. At some point in our lives we will experience losing a grandmother, grandfather, mother, father, sister, brother, son, daughter, aunt, or uncle. Some of us may get over the death of the person quickly and others may be forever stuck in the absence of their presence.

As we welcome 2017, health improvement is usually one of the top 5 resolutions. Whether the goal is to quit smoking, drinking, drug use or lose weight, it all begins with being willing to make that change. Change takes time. The key is to set small obtainable goals to see your progress. For tips on a new healthy lifestyle regarding diet and exercise for 2017 check out https://www.choosemyplate.gov/.
