✅1 Set realistic goals.
Many of us start the new year with huge, vague goals like “work out more” or “eat healthier.” But those are less likely to stick than more specific, manageable ones, like scheduling three visits to the gym per week or replacing cakes with fruit for dessert, according to the American Psychological Association; if you can actually keep up with your resolutions, you’re much more likely to create healthier habits❤️
✅2.Go for a walk outside in The fresh air.
“Daily walking increases metabolism by burning extra calories and by preventing muscle loss, which is particularly important as we age.❤️Better yet, walking can lessen your risk of type 2 diabetes, lower your blood pressure, and ward off cardiovascular issues❤️.
✅3.Get creative in the kitchen.
When you’re stuck in a cooking rut, you can find yourself resorting to the same old meals day after day—totally the opposite of how energizing it should feel to make dinner. Every week, seek out a new recipe to try, whether it’s a hearty soup or a protein-packed smoothie; you might spark a newfound love of cooking, on top of increasing your motivation and self-esteem.
✅4.Try new forms of self care
“Take action by setting aside five to 60 minutes each week to try out a new self-care practice. Some ideas to help you get started are reading a new book, exercising, sitting in nature.
✅5 Walk the stairs instead of taking the lift.
Get this: In a 2017 study, researchers found that just 10 minutes of stair-walking was more effective than 50 mg of caffeine (about half a cup of coffee) in helping sleep-deprived women feel more energized. So on top of burning more calories and contributing to your overall fitness, climbing the stairs daily could keep you awake, too, no caffeine necessary.
We can all benefit from some form of meditation, according to the National Institutes of Health, whether it’s just being more present and mindful in each moment or a daily half-hour practice.
