The New Year is nearly upon us, and while we’re still in between the awkward period after Christmas, we figured it might be a good time to figure out some of the more achievable resolutions you can make and keep for the year to come.
We believe in the health and peace of mind of all women (and the guys who come on here too!) so here’s a little checklist you can start off with to get your new year starting out right.
- Avoid negative and toxic people, relationships, and situations. It didn’t do you any good then, it won’t do you any good in the year to come.
- Figure out a reasonable sleeping schedule for yourself. Enough of the times when you go to work exhausted, then come home incredibly wired from all the caffeine you had throughout the day, only to repeat the unhealthy process the next day.
- Eat better! Although that doesn’t necessarily mean you have to say goodbye to all your favorite salty, sweet, and savory snacks. It just means adding in more of the good stuff like fruits, vegetables, nuts (unless you have severe allergies!), lean meats, and milk alternatives, if dairy isn’t your thing. The food we consume not only affects our appearance and physical well-being, it also manifests in our mental well-being. Ergo the less junk food you eat, the lesser you will look and feel like junk.
- Learn to compromise, and we’re starting out with vices. If you can’t seem to find the time to develop a regular workout routine if your resolution is to achieve your dream bod, then compromise by eliminating an unhealthy thing from your life. Smoke less, drink less, and stop taking recreational drugs.
- It’s never too late to take up something you’ve always been interested in. Whether it’s a sport, arts and crafts, cooking, heck, even DIY-ing your own tiny house, maybe 2018 is the best time to try your hand at it.
- Clean out your house! Spring cleaning is a thing for a reason, and decongesting your living space of things you don’t need allows for airier rooms, more space to utilize, and lesser chances for dust to gather and plan your downfall. Donate, sell, or give it away to people you like, it’s your call.
We hope these resolutions help you in reaching more specific goals, whatever it may be, but as long as it leads to a healthier and happier you!
