Setting Realistic and Achievable Health Goals for the New year!
Let's start with - don't bite off more than you can chew!
It's so important to set long term, realistic goals so we don't throw the goals out the window by February!
Think lifestyle changes, for both body and mind, that are doable, enjoyable and will easily become second-nature.
Here's a few of our top tips for a happier and healthier you in 2018 and beyond...
- Make time for you!
Whether you are a business owner, Mother, Grandfather, or student, taking the time to reflect and process lifes challenges is so important. It can be something simple like spending half an hour to plan your week, doing a solo workout, or walking the dog - just take this time each week no matter what!
- Find balance in your diet
Like anything your diet is all about balance. Find a few new healthy recipes, using the foods you love, and incorporate them into your weekly meal plan. Experiment with different healthy foods and take closer attention to what fuels your body and soul!
- Limit technology
We know you can't stop using your phone or computer completely, but why not take a small break for a few days and reconnect with your family or environment. Maybe try a tech-free day each week, or limiting the amount of times you check in each day. Your mind, and family, will thank you for it!
- Add a new Workout to your routine
There are so many options out there to get fit, so why not try something new this year. Cycling, HIIT, Pilates or Tennis anyone? Mix it up with a high impact and low impact to help extend the life of your joints and allow many more workouts for years to come!
- Start the day with Gratitude and Positivity!
Focus on all the good in your life to improve your mood and your physical health will follow. Each morning before the stresses of the day arise, think about what makes you happy and what you can be grateful for. Give yourself more kindness and compliments and open your mind to new possibilities!
