What are your New Year’s resolutions? Are you still jotting them down or you just have a game plan in mind? Well, my New Year’s resolutions include:
- Drinking more water (H2O)
- Eating healthier foods
- Exercising more
Drinking water is essential for the human body. Did you know that water makes up nearly 80% of the human body? I usually reject the consumption of water because it has no taste. With all the flavored water and flavored packets available, there is no excuse for not drinking the required amount of water which is known to be 8 glasses a day. Water is needed for the excretion of waste from our bodies. Have you ever wondered where constipation come from? What an unpleasant feeling that can be avoided if we will consume the amount of water that is needed daily.
Eating healthier foods is a must. What better time is there for me to make better food selections that starting the year eating healthy? Many books and articles that I have read highly recommend organic products. There is no better feeling than eating food that will make the body feel better. Imagine being able to breathe better, engage in activities at the park, and do exercises that body weight wouldn’t allow you to do at first. With all the additives in many of the products in out local grocery stores, our taste buds just become addictive to the taste. But, our body is missing the proper nutrients that the body need for the cells to function properly. So, be sure to pay much attention to your food and beverage labels as you shop for food and various drinks/juices.
Have you ever just sat and watched other people exercise ? Have the words from your mouth always been “I’m going to start going to the gym”? Well, there is no better time than this to begin your own exercising at home. I prefer exercising with my own selection of music as I work various areas of my body. Those who are not as self-disciplined as I am may want to obtain a membership at a local gym with an affordable monthly membership fee. For those who truly are not self motivators, you may want to hire a trainer who can lead and guide you in the right direction to become the preferred size and weight.
Overall, be sure that you are making New Year’s resolutions that are going to benefit you. Some people tend to make statements and call them resolutions. But, those statements have no potentials in displaying a change in his/her life in the long run. As we enter in the year of 2013, be your own motivator. Don’t wait on others to lead and guide you. You know what your plans are and the things that need to be done. So, make the appropriate decision on your own to seek the necessary results you have in mind. While you are waiting on others to encourage you and motivate you, look at all the accomplishments that could have been made if you took the initiative to put forth effort your plans. Are you setting beneficial New Year’s resolutions?
