Hat’s Off to everyone making healthy New Years resolutions. Now is a good time to get real and admit that big changes are hard to keep all year long.
Here are some tips to help keep your resolutions.
Start small when you make big changes.
If you make changes slowly – one tiny step at a time – you have a greater chance of maintaining them. Consistency is a huge key to making changes a permanent part of your lifestyle.
If your goal is to lose weight in 2023, maintain your goal by adjusting your diet and your exercise program to secure losing 1 pound every week. You’ll lose 20 pounds after 20 weeks, and if your new resolution is rock solid, you’ll keep those pounds off permanently and lose more over time, if you choose.
At the very least, you’ll maintain good health.
Adapt changes to your environment.
Let’s say that your New Year’s resolution is to begin walking 1 mile every day. This is a great resolution, but keep in mind where you live so that you can design a way to permanently keep this goal.
If you live in a region that gets cold and snowy in the wintertime, keeping you indoors for example, get a treadmill and walk your 1 mile inside the house on the days that the weather is too cold to walk outside.
Don’t overdo your commitments, such as walking a mile every day. Be realistic and commit to walking M-W-F or every Tuesday – Thursday – Saturday weekly. If you can honestly continue on your goal everyday – great, but if you cannot realistically commit to your new resolutions everyday, you will eventually stop them.
Honor any new program that you have committed to as if it was an appointment that you cannot miss.
Make an agreement with yourself to honor your New Year’s resolutions, but be realistic.
There is always a Plan B to any problem – get creative and design a solution.
Let’s say your New Year’s resolution is to stop drinking colas and fizzy sugary soft drinks. A solution is to drink more water flavored with natural fruits or add a flavored electrolyte, such as Liquid IV. Make a pitcher of green tea or Chaga tea, and fill your glass with a healthy drink instead of popping open a soda.
This satisfies your cola habit in a much healthier way.
Stay creative and research healthier alternatives to maintain your resolutions.
Get a Hair Analysis
If you want to improve your health, you have to know what it is you are improving.
Learn what toxins you may currently be exposed to, and discover exactly what essential nutrients you may be deficient in. Do you know if your digestion is efficiently assimilating your nutrients?
I recommend getting a hair analysis done once every year to keep your thumb on your health status. It helps you become more aware of the things that are working well for you and what things aren’t. This is how you make the right changes.
There’s no better time to detox than at the start of a new year, but detoxing should be done regularly and throughout the entire year.
A hair analysis will show you if you have been exposed to toxins, and then you can design a detox program that will help improve your health all year long. This will also provide you with a healthier eating program and exercise routine to improve your health.
