Happy New Year everyone!
2020 has just arrived and as always, there are a lot of expectations and goals we want to achieve or stick to. A typical New Year’s resolution for some of us is, staying healthy because, after all, that’s what matters, right?. Yes
The good news is that you don’t need a restrictive meal plan to stay healthy throughout the year.
These simple tips are a guide to kick starts the year.
Concentrate on your diet
Concentrating on what you eat has proven to be helpful than hitting the gym. Besides, an overwhelming emphasis on exercise is tiresome and exhausting and when it comes to reaching a healthy weight, what you don’t eat is much, more important.
Breaking a sweat naturally eliminates impurities through the skin. Although running, walking and biking are great aerobic activities that allow you to move your body. This means you don’t have to spend any money on a gym membership; the key is finding a form of movement you enjoy and sticking with it.
All that booze over the holidays is likely to have caused some dehydration so it’s important to rehydrate. Fluids help flush out our system and maintain energy and focus. Especially now that we are in harmattan season it’s even more important to drink up. Remember that water is your best friend but you can also try hot Ginger tea, warm lemon water, to help reach your hydration goals.
Eat whole foods
While processed foods are convenient, they are sometimes unhealthy. Having a healthy meal plan is one of the most important things you can do to maintain good health and a high quality of life. In addition to an overall balanced diet, you can include certain foods that aid and promote the body’s natural detox process.
Reduce sugar intake
Cutting down sugar is also important for detox. Your body is tired and consuming sugar will force your body to work to produce more insulin. So, give your body some rest by reducing the amount of sugar you eat.
Get rid of bad habits
We all have some bad habits that we wish to get rid of once and for all. Whether it’s mindless surfing on the internet late at night, smoking, or overeating junk food—our lives would be so much better without them.
Bad habits are time-consuming and prevent us from achieving our goals.
Most of the time, bad habits are simply a way of dealing with stress and boredom. Everything from biting your nails to overspending on a shopping spree to drinking every weekend to wasting time on the internet can be a simple response to stress and boredom. But it doesn’t have to be that way. You can teach yourself new and healthy ways to deal with stress and boredom, which you can then substitute in place of your bad habits.
We hope you find these tips helpful. What is your New year Pledge? Are they sustainable?
