The New Year is about new beginnings. It is also about digging into yourself a little deeper and carving a new personality in 2022. If you are thinking about going on a weight-loss program or something along the lines of active living and positive thinking, this could be one of the best opportunities for you. You are only one month into the New Year and if you are reading this blog, you are already motivated to make a change. Let’s begin:
Drink Like A Fish
Consume at least 3 liters of water every day. Water is the healthiest drink on the planet and if you can cultivate a habit of consuming it enough throughout the day, you will notice a stark change in your skin and overall complexion. It is going to improve your digestive system and remove all the toxins from your body. It will enhance the elasticity of your skin and assist you in weight loss as well. Begin your day with at least 750ml of warm water and you will notice a big difference in your overall health very soon.
Invest In A Probiotic
Make it a habit of consuming a probiotic drink or capsule every day. This should not be confused with any other supplements or health drinks. Probiotics are very beneficial for your gut and can do wonders for your digestive system. They are awesome for your immunity and some of the most popular sources of probiotics include Greek yoghurt that you get in the market in various flavours. Icelandic yoghurt is also a great source of probiotics that you must include in your daily diet.
Find A Sugar Substitute
Refined sugar is never good for your health. You can invest in sugar substitutes such as brown sugar or probably jaggery or organic honey but even they are going to add more calories to your overall diet. You can go with a zero calorie sweetener instead if you want to live a healthier and more active life. Other than this, there are fruits such as pineapples, pomegranates, berries, and peaches that you can use in place of refined sugar. But remember, if you are watching your weight, you might want to limit the consumption of these fructose-rich fruits as well.
Read Labels Before Buying
If you come across any labels on your favourite food items that have “organic” or “whole food” or “coconut oil” written on them, you can go right ahead and make that purchase. Try to avoid any food items that contain food colours, preservatives, parabens, and artificial fragrances. Remember to buy whole foods and organic items only.
Take Steps To Manage Your Stress
Do you know how important it is to manage your stress levels every day? If you are suffering from hypertension and anxiety, you need to take certain steps such as:
- Get at least 7 to 9 hours of sleep every day
- Wake up in the morning and perform at least one hour of workout before you start with your daily routine
- Make it a point to take out some free time for yourself
- Communicate your feelings with your family and friends
- Take a chill pill and relax in your space either with some soothing music or a great book
Change Yourself, Challenge Yourself
It is always better to keep on challenging yourself with more difficult targets and new milestones. This is how you learn. This is how you grow.
