The beginning of the year is always a great time for a fresh start, but sometimes we try to achieve too much. Here are some simple lifestyle changes that will help you ease into healthier, everyday routines.
Move around. Find the time to go outside. If you can’t fit a full workout into your busy schedule, make it a point to walk outside five minutes every day. This easy commitment could easily turn into a workout habit.
Better Sleep Not everyone is able to go to bed earlier, but the idea of leisure at bedtime by reading, playing, or watching videos on your device could be keeping you up longer instead of winding you down. Put the phone and tablets away before bedtime.
Focus on finding solutions Only focus on problems when you are determined to find a solution. If find yourself only complaining, shift your energy immediately and focus on finding a solution to the problem.
Say “no” No one wants to be perceived as the naysayer, but a firm “no” sometimes is necessary. Over committing to please others can make you miserable, so say “no” when you know agreeing to something will add pressure to yourself. See the good in life
Look for the brightest side of things Look for the brightest side of things and don’t take simple things for granted. Usually those simple things are really the essential ones for your happiness. Be grateful.
Lighten up Find time for fun times. Whether it is getting together with friends to talk and joke around, watching a comedy, or finding things that you enjoy and make you laugh is essential for your brain.
Down time is essential Avoid burning out by filling up your agenda. Having days of “nothing to do” may be hard in our fast-paced world but giving yourself one of those lazy days does the body and mind well.
