To our policyholders in areas affected by the recent hurricanes, please know that the thoughts and prayers of everyone at Aflac are with you. We are working with government agencies that represent all declared disaster areas to ensure we do everything possible to help you. Based on that guidance, we have extended the due dates for policy premiums by 60 days for those living in places that have been declared disaster areas.

Already blown your New Year’s health or weight-loss resolution? Here are 9 tips for getting back on track

We start out each year with the best of intentions: According to the latest numbers from Statistic Brain,1 almost half of us begin by making a New Year’s resolution. The most common vow? Losing weight.

It sounds great, but the truth is that most weight-loss resolutions fall flat. An article in U.S News & World Report2 revealed that 80 percent of us have abandoned our slimming goals by the second week of February. Sometimes it’s simply because our goals are too ambitious and we expect too much, too quickly. If we break things down strategically and celebrate small wins, our resolutions might be easier to keep. With that in mind, here are nine tips to share with employees eager to get back on track:

  • Be realistic. If you told yourself you’d hit the gym for an hour every day and give up carbs forever, you reserved a spot among the 32 percent of people who blew their resolutions within two weeks.1 Give yourself a break by hitting the gym, say, three times a week and accepting the fact that “no carbs – ever” is cause for mutiny.
  • Become a trendsetter. Convince co-workers and friends to join you at the gym or on your jogs. There’s strength in numbers, not to mention pressure to live up to your goals.
  • Check your employee benefits. Many employers help workers succeed in their fitness efforts with tips and tools available through company-sponsored wellness programs. Some even have onsite fitness centers or partner with off-site gyms to provide discounted memberships for employees.
  • Pour yourself a drink... a drink of H2O, that is. Sipping water throughout the day will increase your metabolism and help with weight-loss efforts. Extra bonus: Drinking lots of water leaves skin more hydrated and youthful-looking.
  • Put down the bottle. When you drink alcohol, you drink calories. By limiting your intake, you’ll lose weight. You should also know that while water hydrates your skin and improves your appearance, alcohol does just the opposite. Too much leaves your skin dry and your body bloated, making you look not just older but heavier too.
  • Pull Quote: Some of today's dinner plates are the size of platters. Stock your cabinet with salad plates. Odds are you'll eat less.Grab a plate. As the saying goes, it’s not what you eat but how much you eat. Some of today’s dinner plates are the size of serving platters. Stock your cabinet with salad plates. Odds are you’ll eat less.
  • Have your cake and eat it too. The key to a successful diet is cheating every once in a while. A treat tastes better if it’s a reward for a week of eating healthfully.
  • Know your numbers. Knowing your cholesterol and blood sugar levels and having them checked regularly will give you greater insight into what your diet goals should be.
  • Insure your health. While you’re working toward improved health and fitness, make sure your insurance portfolio is healthy too. Take a look at your major medical insurance, life insurance and other employer-paid coverage. If your current choices aren’t providing the financial protection you need, consider adding voluntary insurance to the mix. If you are sick or hurt, voluntary insurance policies can help with unexpected expenses. For example, you can use their cash benefits to help pay bills that keep rolling in while you’re injured or ill, including the rent or mortgage, credit cards, utilities, child care and any other expense threatening your family’s financial security.
