New Year’s Resolution Tips

HAPPY HEALTHY NEW YEAR!

I hope you enjoyed the holidays…
… Now let’s get ready to win in 2019!

What do you want to accomplish this year?

New Year Resolutions are always made with great intentions but unfortunately, it can be much easier to break them than to make them! Set an intention and infuse this year with positive change.

Here are 10 tips you may find helpful to succeed:

  • Don’t over indulge all the time – Most of us had lots of social events to go to during the holidays and felt compelled to meet over a meal or alcoholic drinks. And this is an ongoing thing not just over holidays.  Why not suggest meeting for a cup of herbal tea or a non-alcoholic drink instead? 😉  If you go out to eat, ensure you have something small to eat earlier, so then by the time you go out for dinner you are not so ravenous and end up ordering everything on the menu. Stay in control and order sensibly so you don’t end up feeling guilty of a wrong food choice and bloated! 😉
  • Set achievable goals – Don’t make it too hard for yourself, break your goal into smaller steps as it makes it easier to achieve.
  • Think positive – Try to think positively and put in place strategies to stay healthy, then there is a good chance that’s how it will turn out. What you focus on it expands, so focus on positive things instead of negative ones. Try it and you will see it works!
  • Adopt healthy eating habits – Set some healthy eating goals such as reducing caffeine intake (including coffee, black tea, cola drinks and even chocolate).
  • Drink plenty of water every day to remain hydrated and flush the toxins out. When you feel hungry, drink a glass of pure water first and wait about ten minutes, many times we think we are hungry and instead we are just thirsty. 😉
  • Minimize consuming refined carbs such as white baking goods, white pasta, white rice and refined sugar. Instead try eating complex carbs such as whole meal rye, whole wheat and spelt baking goods, whole wheat or spelt pasta, brown rice and natural sweeteners such as coconut sugar, xylitol, stevia, raw honey etc.
  • Take some time to relax by simply taking a power nap, listening to nature sounds music, meditating or yoga.
  • Aim for 7-8 hours of sleep every night. Feeling tired can easily increase your stress levels, lower your concentration and lead to unhealthy food/drink choices.
  • Stay active – Try and exercise every day even if it is just for 10 minutes to start with. The main thing is establishing a routine. Once established, gradually increase the time.
  • Don’t give up! Be firm in your resolve but if you slip, don’t criticize yourself, instead gently remind yourself of your intention and keep at it. Change doesn’t happen overnight, be patient. 😉 Don’t quit just because you slip today or find sticking to your resolutions tricky sometimes. Get back on the wagon again tomorrow and keep at it, believe yourself that you can do it! Don’t just focus on how difficult the journey will be but instead on the results how great you will look and feel when you achieve it! 😉
