At the start of a new year, we look ahead at what’s to come and consider what we’d like to change from the year before. What do you want to accomplish this year?
No matter your age or situation, it’s never too late to make a change—and there are many simple things we can all do to enhance our personal wellness and feel good today and every day!
While working toward making a change, it can often be valuable to think of our goal as a habit we wish to permanently incorporate into our lifestyle, rather than something with a specific end mark.
Here are a few ideas to consider incorporating into your daily routine:
- Drink a full glass of water first thing each morning. Get hydrated and get a fresh start.
- Set a mantra or plan for each day. Begin your day with a goal in mind, no matter how small or simple it may be.
- Move as much as you can. Set a timer to move around or at least change position every 30 to 60 minutes each day.
- Do a good deed for someone else. When someone does a good deed for you, instead of paying them back, pay it forward. A selfless act feels good to giver and recipient, and can help inspire kindness in others, as well!
Cultivating a general sense of wellness can help us feel our best and have more energy to spend on what makes us happy. Focusing on ourselves throughout the year means that we can approach each new milestone with confidence.
