How To Start The New Year Healthy?
New Year, New You!
As we wave the following year a happy goodbye, let’s welcome this new one with the zest and enthusiasm every fresh beginning deserves. It’s time to set new goals and work hard to get rid of some of those bad habits that marked our lifestyle all round the previous year.
We know what you are thinking. It’s one thing to set a resolution (not to mention easier), another thing to follow through it. Especially, when these resolution are about being healthy. People are creatures of habit and it’s super hard to inculcate ones that keep you from eating your favorite cheese pizza or red velvet cheesecake.
So, why not set some fresh goals that we can actually achieve, to start this New Year healthy? Here are a few resolutions that will give you real results in the coming year:
No, by this we don’t actually mean you should look after your food, day in and day out. It actually means you should pay attention to your food while you are eating it. Dr. David Cox, chief medical officer at Headspace in an interview to SELF said, “If you pay attention to your food you are psychologically more satisfied by it”. Therefore, multitasking while having your lunch is a strict no-no.
Drink more Water
As generic or cliché this advice may seem, there is actually no substitute for drinking water. Drinking water regularly not only keeps your body happy, it helps you combat indigestion, acidity and even heart diseases. One easy way of doing so is keeping a bottle next to your work desk for you to sip on. Drinking water before your meals is also a good idea. Experts also say that we often confuse hunger with thirst, therefore keep and calm and sip on whenever you are feeling a little peckish.
Relaxing is important but relaxing right is essential. Taking some time off from your work is good as it helps you re-centre your mind but your tranquil mood fades off easily in the daily hustle of life. This is why it is more important to relax in a way that particularly helps ease the stress of your job. Our Activity Specific Training makes performing your job a stress free process.
