Healthy Resolutions for the New Year

Resolutions2015Physical Health
Don’t overdo your new year’s resolution to get in shape and stay healthy. Set realistic goals that fit into your daily routine.

Instead of “I’m going to work out every day for two hours a day,” you might want to try “I’m committed to working out 5 days a week for 45 minutes per day.” Look at your schedule and commit to a workout plan that fits. Even doing a simple 25-minute active workout several days a week can boost energy and improve health while easily fitting into your busy schedule.

“I’m cutting carbs completely!” Ok, but it’s harder than you may think, and you’ll probably find yourself starving. Let’s ease into it a bit by substituting the bad carbs for good carbs, such as whole wheat instead of white bread. Make a promise to not eat carbs late at night or past a certain time.

By setting realistic goals, you are more likely to stay on track with your resolutions.

Mental Health
Make time for yourself. Set aside a specific time that fits into your schedule to do something for yourself. Whether it’s a long walk by the water, reading a book on the porch or incorporating meditation into your daily routine, be sure you do something for yourself.

Make time for others. Find a charity or a philanthropic cause that is close to your heart. Use your skills and talents to support a cause-related project. Not only is this good karma, but it’s also good for your mental state.

Use these simple tips when setting your new year resolutions, and feel better, both physically and mentally, throughout the whole year!
