Happy 2019! The New Year is the perfect time to begin thinking about healthy and active living for the year to come. To help you start your year off right, we’ve compiled some of our favourite tips to help you have your best year yet! 🎉
Get into a fitness routine…with your friends!
Getting into a fitness routine is one of those classic New Years resolutions that everyone says they will do, but that rarely happens. To help you achieve this goal, we recommend finding some friends to join you in your fitness journey! When working out becomes both a social and athletic activity, you’ll be more likely to hit the gym! Pro tip: look for classes or sports that are fun for you, whatever they may be!
Meditating is all the rage these days and there’s a good reason why. People who meditate regularly are generally less stressed, feel more energized and are even happier than those who don’t. If you’re on the fence about it, just start off small—say two minutes of meditation per day. You can also try out aps for simple guided meditations and mindfulness tips.
Take time for yourself
It can be hard to take time to chill out, when everything in the world seems to be whirling by at a mile per minute. However, taking time for yourself is key to your health. Make it a priority this year to spend a small (or large) amount of time every day for you. We promise you won’t regret it!
Bring your lunch to work
Do you find yourself constantly buying lunch when you’re at work? Besides spending a fortune on average tasting meals, you are also loading up on likely not very healthy calories. Even take-out salads, which seem healthy are often loaded up with tons of sodium and fatty dressings. Instead try and bring your own balanced lunch. You can use leftovers or even meal prep on Sunday evenings so you have a weeks worth of delicious and healthy meals ready to go!
Take some time to unplug
Constantly being plugged into the world is one of the most stressful aspects of living in the 21st century. Between emails, news, and the constant connectivity, being online all the time can seriously add to your stress levels. This year, try and take a few hours each day to be actively offline. Leave your phone at home when you go for a walk or turn in on airplane mode before you head to bed at night.
We hope these ideas help you to have your best and healthiest year yet! Happy New Year💪💖🙌
