Now I know that during the holidays, it may be the hardest time to keep health on the top of your mind especially when there are cookies and egg nog that need to be eaten and drank!

But if you're looking into the new year thinking this will be the year you start working out, doing yoga, or just being healthier then you might want to know if you live in New Jersey's healthiest city.

Personally, I like to lift before work each day and try to go for a jog down the boardwalk a few times a week.

I wouldn't really consider myself overly healthy though; I still love eating pizza and boardwalk fries when I can.

That being said, a national survey ranked the 50 healthiest cities in the entire country and one from New Jersey made the cut.

What New Jersey City Was Ranked Among The Healthiest Cities In The County?

Stacker reports that the cities were determined by several factors:

[which] account for smoking, regular alcohol consumption, access to gyms, physicians, and mental health professionals, and obesity rates to rank overall health. ~Stacker

So, what New Jersey city made this outstandingly healthy list?

It's a part of Hudson County and overlooks the New York Skyline.

Congrats to Jersey City, New Jersey for ranking the 45th healthiest city in the country. The city pulled in an overall health grade of an A minus, and a health and fitness grade of an A.
