Resolutions and the new you

As the year draws to an end, it’s a great time to reflect on the positives as well as any negatives that happened throughout the year in regards to your health. Were there any boundaries holding you back? Are there any resolutions you made at the beginning of the year that you are yet to fulfil? Were there any goals you achieved which made you feel extremely proud and satisfied?

If you are looking to begin the new year with a fresh and healthy outcome, now is the time to set yourself some goals. Remember to make them achievable so you don’t get too overwhelmed and disheartened.

We’ve included a few ideas to get you thinking…

You could try adding a new recipe into your weekly meal plan to keep meal times for yourself and your family exciting.

Aim for quality sleep. Switch off the technology, take a bath or pick up a book to help you unwind before bed.

Take some time each week for yourself. Do something that you really enjoy – whether it is an art class, massage, going for a swim or catching up with a friend. We all get so busy that we forget to allow ourselves some much needed downtime.

Carry a water bottle with you. This way you have it on hand and it will soon become a habit to increase your water intake throughout the day.

Step away from your desk at lunchtime. Get outside and take a break, with the added bonus of soaking up some Vitamin D to boost your mood.

Mix up your exercise – if going to a gym is not for you, why not try something new. Join an outdoor group fitness, take a dance class, go for a bush walk or swim in the ocean.

Now is the time to set yourself some new goals as the new year rolls around. Remember that a healthy mind is just as important as a healthy body.
