Tips To Get Healthy This Year
It's that time of year again! New Year's resolutions are in full swing, and many people are vowing to get healthy in 2023. The New Year brings many exciting and positive changes for most everyone. It’s a time to reset, recharge, and refocus in all areas of life. Perhaps the most popular goal setting is with your health.
Most health goals begin with a number on the scale. Or the size of your clothes. And while these goals can boost motivation and a focused milestone, they’re usually the goals people hit and don’t maintain, or never even reach to begin with.
But getting healthy doesn't have to be a daunting task. There are small changes you can make in your everyday life that will lead to big results. Keep reading for tips on how to get healthy and stick to your goals this year!
Set realistic goals for yourself -
(don't try to do too much at once)
For anyone looking to get healthy, goal-setting is a critical aspect of the process. It's important to set realistic goals that are achievable and won't overwhelm or stress you out. Trying to do too much at once can add additional pressure and bring down your overall motivation. Instead, break up your larger goal into smaller, more manageable pieces, and make sure that you recognize even the small successes along the way.
Taking on an entire lifestyle change all at once can be difficult, but by setting short-term attainable goals, you'll get closer to reaching your long-term objective in a more structured manner.
Find an activity that you enjoy -
(and stick with it)
Exercise may get a bad rap for being too difficult or time consuming, but with the right approach it can be both fun and beneficial to your overall health. Finding an activity that you enjoy is often key in sticking with it. Whether it be running, biking, hiking, or small activities like yoga, pilates or tai chi, there are many options available to get healthy and have a good time doing it. Having fun during your exercise routine will make it much easier to stay motivated and ensure that you get into the best shape of your life!
Eating healthy doesn't have to be expensive -
(focus on simple, whole foods)
Eating healthy doesn't have to be expensive and complicated; in fact, focusing on simple, whole foods is a great way for anyone to get healthy. Eating fresh fruits and vegetables can provide an abundance of nutrients that are integral for overall health. Adding some lean proteins and complex carbohydrates like oats and quinoa can provide essential energy throughout the day.
With a few basic items from the grocery store, you can make nutritious meals without breaking the bank. Following a program, such as the Quicksilver Scientific 30 Day Reset can help you with meal plans, shopping lists, recipes as well as the right supplements to keep you on track and focused. Incorporating a few simple guidelines while shopping can help you get the most out of your food budget while also getting healthier as you go!
Drink plenty of water -
(and avoid sugary drinks)
Staying hydrated is a key part of getting healthy, and the healthier way to get your daily dose of water is to drink it plain. Drinking plenty of plain water throughout the day ensures your body stays fueled and able to get through its routine. Remember, sugary drinks like soda or energy drinks contain empty calories without providing any real nutrition – so be sure to avoid these and get your water fix instead!
Drinking more water will not only help keep you energized but can also reduce the intake of unhealthy food cravings. Start today by replacing a few sugary drinks with an extra glass of water and get on your way to a healthier you!
Get enough sleep!
(7-8 hours per night is ideal)
Sleep is an important part of our daily routine and plays a pivotal role in our overall well-being. Aiming for 7-8 hours of quality sleep every night gives us energy, strengthens our immune system and helps with focus, concentration and alertness during the day.
Additionally, getting enough sleep improves cognitive functioning, supports memory formation and makes it easier to manage emotions like anxiety or depression. So if you really want to stay healthy and productive, make sure you get your desired 8 hours each night!
Make time for relaxation and stress relief -
As we navigate daily life and the various stressors that come with it, it is important that we make time for relaxation and stress relief every day. Taking even just a few moments out of our day to practice mindful breathing exercises or any other form of relaxation can really help us stay grounded and manage any overwhelming emotions.
Setting aside a designated chunk of time each day as our “me-time”, makes relaxation more habitual and will ultimately lead to increased feelings of wellbeing. And if you have difficulty carving out that time each day, enlisting the support of others, such as family members or friends can be extremely helpful in making official commitments to your mental health, allowing you to be kinder to yourself going forward.
