As we reflect on the holidays and the past year, we start looking towards the future, specifically the New Year and resolutions. What changes are we going to make? Accomplishments, personal goals and more. Resolutions are pretty traditional, but they can be hard to stick to. However, you can make sure that 2018 is your year by keeping up good habits and breaking bad ones.
Keeping resolutions obtainable
1. Better Eating Habits
We know all too well the temptation to reach for the chips when we should be reaching for the vegetables. Unhealthy eating might seem like nothing at the moment, but an improper diet can contribute to a variety of health problems and reduce longevity in our lives. For the new year, you can resolve to eat better. Don’t make it a chore. Look for great healthy recipes that are as delicious as they are nutritious. You can set reasonable targets such as losing a determined amount of weight over the course of the year. The key is to not going to drastic. Choosing a goal that is obtainable.
Eating better is a start, but you also need to combine it with exercise in order to see real results. Don’t think that you need to be some sort of star athlete in order to benefit from exercise. Everyone, from children to seniors, can get something out of it. Start slowly with about 20 minutes of aerobic exercise. From there, you can improve your technique and ultimately, your physique and more importantly your health.
When we think of exercising and training, we typically think of our bodies. Have you considered exercising your mind? Meditation is part of the practice of mindfulness, where we examine our thoughts and how they affect us. When we breathe, we are meant to just observe our breath. Thoughts might arise, but we don’t have to give them any credence. We can allow them to pass easily, like clouds floating by. With repeated practice, we can feel renewed and focused, not to mention a lot healthier.
Nobody wants more stress in their life. However, so many of us are okay with just letting problems pile up without trying to make ourselves feel better. Some people call themselves workaholics or perfectionists, but they’re primarily bad decision-makers.
You can correct this by taking the time to relax. Give yourself time to unwind on a regular basis. You owe it yourself to make time for yourself. One of the best ways to do so is by going to a spa. Receiving luxurious treatments like massages and facials are an ideal way to feel better both mentally and physically. It’s crucial to remember that it’s not selfish to want the best for yourself, especially when it comes to your well-being.
