The start of a new year is always a time when we take a look at our lifestyle and resolve to make positive changes. The majority of people want to lose a little of the extra weight they have put on over the holidays and others may want to quit smoking or drinking as a result of over-indulgence. Although it is tempting to make bid radical changes after going over the top with the food and drink over the holidays, it’s always better to be realistic. Here we show you how to make healthy changes in the New Year.
Watch what you eat.
After a few weeks of eating perhaps a little too much, it’s time to reduce the calorie intake in the New Year. Although many people choose to go on fad diets that promise to shift lots of pounds over a short period of time, this is not the best way forward. Take a look at your diet and make small adjustments such as making sure you have breakfast each day or quitting caffeine drinks and you’ll soon feel the benefits.
Drink more water.
There are different schools of thought as to how much water we should ideally be drinking every day, but the answer is almost certainly more than you currently do. The majority of us prefer all other types of soft drinks and juices to plain water despite the many health benefits of natural H2O. Drinking water regularly throughout the day keeps you hydrated and maintains energy levels. Being dehydrated causes headaches and nausea and similar symptoms to a hangover.
Do more exercise.
Another simple and cheap way of getting healthier in the New Year is to take more exercise each day. You don’t have to train for a half-marathon or sweat it out in the gym for hours on end. Even taking the dogs for a brisk walk in the park every day is an effective way of improving your well-being. The more exercise you do, the better you will feel as it releases natural endorphins for a “feel good” buzz.
