There’s nothing like starting fresh in a new year. Sometimes a clean slate and a renewed perspective are all you need to tackle the things you’ve been putting off. You don’t need to overhaul your life with hard-to-achieve resolutions. Even making just one small change a day can add up and help you achieve your goals and create new, lasting habits in a more sustainable way. Not sure where to start? Here are five healthy habits for your mind and body we think will help you start the year on the right foot.
Listen to your body and what it's telling you it needs—and yes, sometimes it needs chocolate! Eat what makes you happy and helps your body feel nourished, energized, and cared for. Planning your meals and taking the time to sit down and enjoy your food will help you stay in tune with what your body is asking for.
Find an exercise routine that works for you
From committing to walking your dog for 30 minutes a day to regularly attending your favorite yoga class or trying an exciting, new-to-you workout, make fitting exercise into your daily life something you look forward to. Stay motivated in all-day activewear you’ll actually love putting on.
We’re all guilty of spending too much time mindlessly scrolling or answering a work email or two in the evenings and on the weekend. Find a way to log off for the day, whether that means leaving your phone in the other room when getting in bed or setting screen time limits. Spending less time in front of a screen will give you more time be present and enjoy other things!
Learn something new
Studies have shown that trying new things keeps your brain active and healthy. If there’s something you’ve always wanted to try, like ceramics or dance or even learning a new language, there’s no better time to stop thinking and start trying!
Be gentle with yourself
Above all else, give yourself the grace you’d give to others. Adopting healthy habits is about progress, not perfection, so try not to compare your New Year journey to others. Be patient, slow down, acknowledge your accomplishments, and find time for self-care.
