Before January has even come to an end, most people have given up on their annual commitment to themselves. Recent research has discovered that Saturday, Jan. 12th is that fateful day of New Year’s resolutions being thrown aside. Have you ditched yours?
Sticking to resolutions is hard and we all know there’s a lot of talk and pressure in January about getting fitter and being healthier. When we set big goals, that we can’t achieve, we get hard on ourselves and are disappointed and often give up.
So instead… Let’s keep them this year!
So many people commit to huge New Year’s resolutions that are nearly impossible to achieve. Then, they end up not reaching their goals. 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 resolutions that are totally achievable:
1. Hydrate with more water
Did 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 chug 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 so beneficial for your entire body.
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 New Year. So, start 2019 by eating whole foods that nourish and benefit your body.
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 unachievable with your schedule. You do not need to head to the gym to move more. In fact, if you sit all day it’s a very good idea to go for a walk on your lunch break, or stand up and move in between breaks. Make moving fun, 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. Make it a goal of yours to stop the negative thinking. This will help you to be an overall happier person and will even help you to become healthier.
When you are thinking of your goals for 2019, I recommend that you start with an achievable goal that will really help you become a happier and healthier you!
We hope that these four suggestions help!
