New Year, Better You – Tips for Healthy Lifestyle
Are you ready to make New Year’s resolutions real? If you wished you would pay more attention to your health in 2017, we’ve got your back.
Here go some tips on starting your fitness and health journey:
If you jump right into a strict diet or a new exercise regime, abruptly cutting everything, you’re going to fail. Sorry. The main rule is simple – move step by step. You need a long-term change, right? Then you need to plan and be careful. For example, you may want to control the amount of soda you drink. When you get comfortable with drinking less or no soda, move forward and try to include more walking in your routine.
Try different things
Don’t limit yourself by a false assumption that one thing works for everyone. Some stuff simply is not suitable for your needs or goals. If you hate running, try rowing. If you hate lifting weights, try calisthenics, and vice versa. If you need help, don’t hesitate and consult a professional. And remember: barre class just seems easy but kicks ass!
You don’t have to part ways with your favorite dishes. Just schedule when you eat them, it’s called a cheat day. Love donuts? Make a tradition of eating them on Sundays. Good things are worth waiting, right?
If you think you’re capable of living that frugal life from scratch, you’re probably wrong. Adjust your life to create a better you gradually, have a lot of fun on the road, and don’t forget to spend time with your family.
You need to rest to be healthy and happy. Put away your phone at least 30 minutes before you’re going to sleep. Relax and enjoy the moment of tranquility. Screens are bad for sleep; lack of sleep is bad for your fitness.
