Set attainable health goals for 2023 and feel good in the long term
Does anyone make New Year’s resolutions anymore?
Diet fads, time-consuming exercise routines, and restrictive lifestyle gimmicks aren’t sustainable for the long term.
Yet, there are some simple, repeatable, and beneficial health hacks that almost anyone can habituate.
Drink more water
Americans are chronically dehydrated. As a result, we experience fatigue, headaches, joint pain, ulcers, weight gain, high blood pressure, and kidney issues.
Water not only helps you feel better, but it also boosts cognitive functioning by increasing oxygen and blood flow to your brain.
Eat more whole foods
Whole foods contain all the nutrition, vitamins, and minerals your body needs. A diet rich in whole foods and fiber low in sugar and saturated fats will naturally help curb cravings for junk food and overeating. It can also help you heal your gut, decreasing digestive issues like acid reflux, constipation, and food sensitivities.
Get more sleep
Sleep plays a vital role in your physical and mental well-being. If you’re tired, you’re stressed, and then you make bad decisions about your health.
A shortage of sleep causes a wide range of complex health issues, including obesity, heart problems, insulin management, and mood.
Prioritize pre-emptive care
Get in front of potential health issues this year. Don’t wait until something becomes a costly or long-term health problem. One simple habit to make is to Take Care of Yourself. Heading-off a health problem before it impacts your quality of life is a straightforward way to feel better in the long term.
