Resolutions For A Healthier You

It is almost 2018, and you’ve probably started to think about your New Year’s Resolutions. Am I right?

So many people commit to huge New Year’s resolutions that are nearly impossible to achieve. Then, they end up being disappointed they didn’t achieve them. One suggestion I have for you is to make your New Year’s resolution ACHIEVABLE this year.

 

When you do achieve your goals, you will be so much healthier.

Here are four perfect resolutions that are totally achievable:

#1. Hydrate with more water

Do you notice when you drink more water you feel better? Water helps your body to run better and will even help you to lose weight. Water will help give you a beautiful, youthful glow too. Make sure that you don’t just drink it all at once. Grab a water bottle and keep it with you throughout the day. This will make it that much easier to achieve your goal, and it will be beneficial for your entire body. Add some flavour to your water using lemons, limes or fresh mint.

 

#2. Crowd out unhealthy foods

Unhealthy foods that are filled with sugar and toxins do our bodies no good. Instead of just eating because you have a sweet tooth craving or because something looks delicious, eat because you want to nourish your body. If you eat foods that will give you energy and help you to feel better, you’ll be on track for a healthier 2018. So, start the year by eating whole foods that nourish and benefit your body.  Try snacking on nuts and seeds instead of chips or other crunchy snacks.

 

#3. Move more

Most people think of a New Year’s resolution as heading to the gym every morning. Although this is a great goal, it can sometimes be a challenge with everyone’s busy schedule. You do not need to head to the gym to move more. In fact, if you sit all day it’s a good idea to go for a walk on your lunch break or stand up and move several times a day. Make moving part of your 2018 goals. You will feel so much better!

 

#4. Let go of negative thinking

Every person has thoughts that creep into their head. Sometimes we can become more judgmental and critical of others in our head, or even put ourselves down. In 2018 make it a goal to stop the negative thinking. This will help you to be an overall happier person and may even help you to become healthier.

 

When you are thinking of your goals for 2018, start with realistic goals that will help you become a happier and healthier you!

    Yes! I love that you started with drink more water! It seems like such simple advice, but just because something’s simple doesn’t make it easy 🙂 I’m definitely making that a goal for myself in 2018. I also really love to focus on how I want to feel… and I think for 2018 the feeling I’m aiming for is ‘BALANCE’.

      Thanks for your comments Aly! You are right just because something is simple doesn’t make it easy. I think your objective of balance is great. We could all use a little balance.
