On the list of new year resolutions, health and wellness always at the top of the list. This year is not exceptional. As we wrap up the year 2018 and leap into 2019, healthy habits should be your top priority. Adopt healthy habits for a better 2019. Below is a list of activities that will help you achieve that healthy lifestyle in 2019.
Drink more water
Water is a basic requirement for the appropriate functionality of all body organs. Therefore, taking an ample amount of water optimizes all body operations. However, doctors advise that one should always ensure that they take a consistent amount of water per day. Since the recommended amount is 8 glasses per day, ensure that it suits your current water intake. Do not attempt to take way too much or too little water starting from New Year’s Eve. Adjust the amount over a period of time.
Sugar intake is harmful and addictive. Our bodies tend to crave for more sugar intake naturally as we take in more. As a result, we end up taking in more and more. Avoid processed sugar at all costs in 2019. One of the ways to avoid sugar is to take sugar-free deserts and substituting sugar-rich buffets with fruits and fruit salads. Unlike sugar-rich deserts, fruits are rich in nutrients that are more helpful to the body than sugar.
Focus on physical exercises
Physical exercise is one point you should not miss in 2019. A sound physical fitness scheme should top the list of your priorities for these reasons; exercise improves your mood, muscle and bones balance and improves mental soundness. However, it is important to note that physical exercise does not mean going to the gym. You can start any wellness program that works best for you, be it walking, running or even lifting weights.
*Tip* It is always important to start slow to avoid exerting too much pressure on your body instantly.
Improve your mental health
Your mental health is key to your level of performance. To maintain optimal functionality, always ensure that your mental health is optimum. In 2019, work on your mental wellness to boost your emotional intelligence as well as ensure that you make the best decisions in everything you do. This will help you overcome challenges in the best way possible.
Always eat a healthy Diet
What you eat translates directly to your life. A healthy diet includes nutritious foods with a substantial amount of fruits and vegetables. In the upcoming year, ensure that your diet has less sugar and more fruits and vegetables. To achieve this, adopt healthy diets slowly to fit into your current diet. A healthy diet coupled with body exercise is a surefire way to better health in the upcoming year.
