Are you you seeking effective ways to change your lifestyle?
With a fresh new year on the horizon, people all around the world are beginning to reevaluate life choices they’ve made. These choices are things you’ve been hoping to change for the past days, weeks, months, or maybe even years, but never found the motivation you needed to do so.
Creating a new lifestyle takes discipline, planning and commitment. The best way to begin a new lifestyle is creating a list of goals for “New You” Resolutions.
This year, we at ToYou, want to help create this new you!
We know how easy it is for people to compile lists of things they need to change, and we know even more how difficult it is to actually execute change. Creating a happy and healthy lifestyle takes work, but isn’t the new you worth it? We think so.
Developing new habits over time is the key to maintaining a new lifestyle from mindset and exercise related activities to nutrition and snacking habits. Listed below are 7 resolutions that we truly believe will make all the difference on your journey to becoming the new you!
A change of mindset is sometimes all a person needs to create a healthier lifestyle. This year, take life by the horns and make it extraordinary. Don’t focus on the things that aren't going your way. Keep everything you’ve accomplished thus far in mind, and push forward with a smile on your face.
There is so much in the world to see and the only thing stopping you from seeing any of it, is you! Take that road trip you’ve always thought about, buy that flight to go abroad when you find a deal online, go to the city you’ve obsessed over in pictures! The memories you’ll make in pursuing these adventures will last a lifetime and are worth much more than any happiness gained from material goods.
Meet New People
Socialize! There are so many people in this world, more than likely one of them could have an extraordinary impact on your life. It could be something as simple as helping you network, to bringing new music, food and art into your life or even motivating you to set and reach goals that seemed out of reach. Say hello to that person in the elevator or your neighbor down the hall, you never know what could happen!
Put the phone away for a little. When you get home to your family, leave it in a different room. If you go to the beach with your friends, don’t spend the entire time letting the world know where you are through social media. Try to truly enjoy the scenery and conversations going on around you. Don’t take it for granted.
Instead of going out for food this year, learn how to cook and snack wisely. Having a busy schedule shouldn't stop you! Plan your meals at the beginning of the week, cook and refrigerate what might be time consuming to make, then heat them up for a quick and easy meal. Buy some healthy snacks made with dried fruits and whole nuts to keep at your office for when you’re hungry instead of running to the fast food place next door for a quick bite.
Enjoy The Little Things
The feeling of sand in between your toes, a ladybug landing on your arm, when your favorite song shuffles on, fresh sheets on the bed, watching the sunrise and sunset, an extra 30 minutes of snooze in the morning, stargazing, a good hair day. Take time to smile and appreciate the little things in life.
Manage Your StressWe are only human. There are always going to be hectic times in our lives where we feel an extra load of stress. However it’s important that you find a way to properly manage it; not only for yourself but for the sake of your relationships with people. Whether it’s doing puzzles, breathing exercises, or listening to music, there is something out there for you.
