Every New Year brings with it the opportunity to start afresh. And now’s the best time to set resolutions to create a lasting change in your lifestyle.
To help you get started, and be more effective throughout the year, here’s a few tips and tricks to help you embrace a new beginning in 2022.
Set Goals, Make Plans – Before you can change your lifestyle, you need to know what you want to improve. This is where setting goals and making a realistic plan comes into play. Research shows that physically writing down attainable goals can help them become solidified in your daily routine.
Remember to be a ‘STAR’ when you set your goals, meaning your goals should be specific, testable, attainable, and relevant.
By crafting your New Year’s plans with these criteria, you’re more likely to both accomplish the goals you set and have better success over a longer time.
Be Mindful of Mental Health – Your mental health is just as vital to overall wellness as your physical health. This New Year set aside 10 minutes everyday to reflect and mediate on your work, life goals, and overall direction.
According to research, these few minutes can add up to a host of benefits, including reduced stress, emotional balance, and enhanced focus.
Additionally, taking time to contemplate helps to increase creativity, memory capacity, and self-awareness—something that can be essential to help you manage a busy day or packed WFH (work from home) schedule.
Add a Dose of Protein – Did you know that protein is an essential component in every cell of your body? That’s why eating enough of this macronutrient is so important.
Including extra protein is easy! It’s abundant in eggs, nuts, lentils, tofu, and lean meats, and there are a variety of ways for you to amp up your protein consumption without eating more meat.
You might even try some vegetarian menus to keep your mealtimes interesting without sacrificing nutritional value.
Fill Your Cup – We all know water is important, but do you know how many glasses you should drink each day? According to scientists, the average adult should have around 8 glasses. So, bust out your favorite water bottle and start filling it up.
Not only is water vital to keep your body hydrated and running optimally, but it also helps support skin’s strength and elasticity, regulate body temperature, and add extra cushioning to your brain, spinal cord, and other sensitive tissues. Those 8 cups a day put in their share of work!
