5 Easy Wellness Habits to Incorporate in the New Year
Building healthy habits is key to living a life of wellness. Consider what you think you’ll need to be successful. How can you change things around you to support your goals? You might need to stock up on healthy foods, remove temptations, or find a special spot to relax. If you set a goal or make a promise to yourself, don’t break it! Would you break a promise to a friend?
1. STAY HYDRATED
Start your day on a refreshing note by reaching for a big glass of water (250-500ml). Hydration is the key to unlocking numerous health benefits, from boosting brain and skin health to enhancing overall energy levels. Make it a morning ritual, sipping before anything else enters your system. Trust me, this simple act sets the tone for a day filled with accomplishments and keeps you on track to meet your daily water goals.
2. INCREASE PROTEIN INTAKE
Elevate your wellbeing by increasing your daily protein intake. Beyond supporting muscle growth, protein plays a crucial role in hormonal balance, metabolism, satiety, blood sugar regulation, and even the production of neurotransmitters and enzymes. Start with a palm-sized serving of protein-rich foods at least three times a day. If you're looking for convenient options, consider Busy Gal for on-the-go meals, Thrive Plant Protein for a tasty shake, or Collagen for a scoop of wellness in any beverage.
3. MINDFUL MOVEMENT
Set realistic exercise goals that align with your current routine. If you're not exercising at all, begin with a manageable goal of 1-2 sessions per week and gradually build from there. Remember, it's about progress, not perfection. Starting small allows you to relish a sense of accomplishment, paving the way for future success and associates positive feelings to exercise rather than demotivating feelings.
4. PRIORITISE HEALTHY SLEEP HABITS
Establishing a consistent sleep schedule can work wonders for your overall well-being. Set specific times to wake up and go to sleep each day to improve the quality of your sleep. If you struggle to wind down, consider NH Moon Mylk—an excellent aid for relaxation that helps you ease into a restful state for a good night's sleep.
5. VEGGIES FOR THE WIN
Boost your health by increasing your vegetable intake. While we all know the benefits, incorporating veggies into our daily routine can be a challenge. Make it easier by buying fresh, in-season produce, placing them front and centre in your fridge, and preparing basic raw veggies in advance for quick snacks. Additionally, keep frozen veggies on hand for easy additions to various dishes like stir fries or bolognese. For a delicious veggie boost, try Naked Harvest Gorgeous Greens — it's a delightful way to sneak in an extra serving of veggies.
