Your Health Goals
Are you feeling like 2019 has been handing you the rough start to the new year? Well, it’s not too late to get those health goals back into gear and to give yourself the year you deserve!
For your health goals, think of your WHY. Remember, there is a reason for the goals that you have chosen and a reason as to why you want them to be a part of your life. Once you have a grasp on your why, let’s get started! Need help with any ideas of what your health goals should be to start off with?
Here are 3 health goals that can be of help to you:
1. Create A Healthy Morning Routine
Creating a healthy morning routine helps with having a positive start to your day. Creating a consistent routine helps boost productivity for longer periods of time throughout the day. It helps keep your mindset right and focused to tackle any challenges that the day can bring. A morning routine doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to wake up at the wee hours of the morning, it just means that you plan to set some time aside to gather yourself before starting your day.
Some things that you can incorporate in your morning routine may be some light stretching, journaling, hydrating with hot lemon water, making a smoothie, and/or taking your vitamins. Whatever it is, know that you have control of what habits you want to keep consistent.
2. Read More Books
Reading has great benefits to the mind! Some benefits include helping improve memory, increases focus and productivity, preserves brain health, alleviates anxiety and depression, increases mental stimulation, and many more!
Reading a book a day can be a great start, even for just 30 minutes! Whether it be a part of your morning routine or even your night routine before falling asleep. Sitting in the waiting room for an appointment or taking a train ride into the city? Placing a book in your bag or keeping one in the pocket of your jacket will help keep your reading goals intact.
3. Eating Nutritious Foods
Eating nutritious foods help with maintaining a strong immune system. The immune system is the body’s defense mechanism against infectious organisms that may enter the body. It is a network of cells, tissues, and organs that work together to help protect your body to keep it safe and healthy. Nutritious foods include essential vitamins that the body needs to thrive and work properly and efficiently. Some important vitamins to consume include vitamin D, magnesium, calcium, zinc, iron, folate, and vitamin B-12. Remember to do your research!
Starting off could be as simple as including a multivitamin into your current diet. Also, including lots of fruits and vegetables. Some small adjustments that could be made can be making a fruit smoothie for breakfast or lunch, juicing some veggies, and/or eating a salad with every meal. Making small adjustments like those above is a great start to incorporating nutritious foods into your current diet.
