It’s important to be realistic when developing new year’s resolutions. While you may be tempted to make a major overhaul to your life, you’re also less likely to maintain drastic changes for any length of time. Fortunately, even minor alterations can have a positive impact on your health and wellness. Here are a few realistic resolutions that will keep you on the right track in 2021.
Most people sit for hours a day at work, then come home and sit for hours at night while relaxing. Try to break up the amount of time you spend sitting any way you can. At work, get up and stretch every 20 minutes or so before repositioning your body. At home, look for ways to be more active. Taking a walk after dinner is a great way to stretch your legs while also working off stress.
Homecooked meals taste better, are more affordable, and preserve your health. Pick out certain days during the week when you have to cook at home. Start with two or three days and increase the number as you become more comfortable. You can also cook meals and freeze them, so you always have healthy, nutritious foods waiting for you.
Limiting screen time is challenging for most people. However, spending too much time staring at a digital screen can affect your mental health while also disrupting your sleep schedule. Try to cut out all usage of mobile devices two hours before bed. When working, take breaks every 20 minutes to look away from your computer screen and focus your eyes on something else. You should also incorporate some non-digital entertainment into your life, such as books and magazines.
It’s easy to fall into a cycle of negative self-talk. Being overly critical of yourself is draining, and it’s likely that no one else recognizes your supposed flaws. If negativity is a problem for you, spend time thinking about all your good points. Every time you experience a negative thought, counter with something good to maintain a positive perspective about yourself.
You can also re-dedicate yourself to skin care in the new year by using products made from organic ingredients. Hale Cosmeceuticals uses effective, all-natural ingredients to create moisturizers, serums, cleansers, and more. We use advanced technologies to afford reliable, proven treatment for common skin issues, such as dryness and acne.
