NEW YEAR - NEW ME
“New Year Resolutions” is the Hot Topic for the first 21 days of January, until it comes to the Australia Day long weekend and everything that you have aimed to do “goes down the drain”. Yep, there it is again, that vicious new year cycle.
It’s great to have goals and new aspirations, however we need to focus on you as an individual, not what the rest of the world is doing or what the media is marketing. Set goals which reflect you to be a better version of you, a healthier you and to improve your daily habits, no one else’s. Stop focusing on numbers- weights- because I guarantee you if you achieve your “ideal unrealistic weight” it will only take 12-24 months for you to regain the weight and more.
Start by reviewing your daily habits, maybe your family’s habits as well and rethink the simple strategies you can change to improve your overall health. It may be to:
Reduce eating out/take away meals to once weekly only
Allocate 10 minutes per day for light activity
Incorporate a vegetable at lunch and dinner daily
Increase my water intake to 1 L per day
Slow down and enjoy my meals
There are so many simple things you can do in your day to day life that creates better habits and leads to long term behaviours.
Be mindful and think about your daily behaviours and habits which will improve your overall health.
So please for 2019 don’t get sucked into the “NEW YEAR – NEW ME” façade. Appreciate the person you ARE because you are human, and you are the only You.
ALL THE BEST!
