It’s that time of the year again when people evaluate their lives and identify room for improvement. I generally don’t make resolutions, but I know plenty of others do. Here are some changes that I have made in my life over the past couple of years that I think have definitely improved my overall wellbeing.
1. Start Walking
Walking is great. Its an excuse to get out of your house, get some fresh air and just clear your mind. Its also a great way to catch up with friends.
2. Drink More Water
Most people don’t drink enough. And what they are drinking may be sugar/calorie heavy beverages. Make it simple and just carry a water bottle with you wherever you go. You will realize how thirsty you get during the day and be thankful for some reprieve.
3. Don’t eat while watching TV
This is something that I recently started and its working pretty well. While watching TV, you tend to snack mindlessly. Try and designate a spot, like sitting at the kitchen table to help remove the temptation of grabbing another cookie.
If you chose to do a new years resolution, my advice is to do it in a moderate way. If you never work out, vowing to go to the gym 5 times a week is unrealistic and sets you up for disappointment. Use the resolution season to gradually build up to realistic goals. Good luck to everyone and a happy new year!
