So we’ve come up with a list of healthy resolutions that you can keep this year! From eating better to getting more exercise, we’ve got you covered. So get started on your healthiest new year yet.
For Your Body
Exercise more this year - and be regular
Did you know that exercising keeps our bodies strong? It’s true! Alternatively, yoga is a great way to relax your mind and keep your body healthy. It also helps fight disease. So, try going on a jog or trying yoga this year if you’re looking to get healthier.
Eat your veggies
Nobody likes vegetables. But did you know that you’re more likely to catch a cold if you don’t eat enough of them? That’s right! They boost your immune system, so try eating more this year.
Pick up any sport or go cycling
Playing sports isn’t just a fun time to spend with your friends. It’s also a great way to exercise and get outside. Alternatively, cycling is also a fun way to get around that keeps you healthy. It gets your blood pumping, which keeps your heart healthy. So start cycling this year for a healthier body, or pick up any other sport (again)!
For Your Mind
Learn something new
Learning something new can make you smarter. Try learning a new language or how to play an instrument. Whatever you choose to learn, it’ll be sure to challenge your brain this year.
Volunteer your time - give back to your community
Did you also know that volunteering can make you happier? It’s true! It can also strengthen relationships between you and your neighbours. So if you’ve got some free time this year, try helping out your community and making their lives better.
Read more books
Books are like dreams for the brain. They take us to new places and introduce us to new people! So why not read more this year? We suggest trying classic literature or Sci-fi.
For Your Health
Cut back on the alcohol & quit smoking
Drinking too much alcohol can be bad for your liver whereas smoking can cause cancer. So if you’re looking to get healthier, why not try quitting smoking or cutting back on the booze this year? It’s a lot easier than you’d think! You can even do it in just seven days if you want to.
Lay off the sugar
Overeating sugar can make your skin go wrinkly. It might seem like a good idea now, but no amount of sugar is worth annoying lines.
Cut down on carbs & dairy
Eating carbs at night slows down your metabolism. Carbs are only good during the day. So don’t eat any past 6 pm if you want to get more fit this year.
Dairy, on the other hand, can cause acne. If you’re looking to get rid of your zits, try giving up dairy this year.
Drink more water
Did you know that water helps keep our skin healthy? It’s true, which is why we suggest drinking more of it this year. Try aiming for eight glasses of water a day. There are lots of yummy ways to make your water taste better, too, like adding cucumber or mint.
Eat more fruits
Fruits boost your immune system, help with acne, and even help with your hair. So if you’re looking for a yummy way to get healthier, why not try eating more fruits this year?
Get more sleep
Sleep is vital for our bodies as well as our skin. It helps our bodies relax and recover. So try getting more sleep this year and bid goodbye to dark circles! You’ll be happier, healthier, and your skin will look better too.
