On the first day for every year, we’d always hope and wish for happiness and many positive changes in our lives. But is it really enough just to hope for them to happen? No, of course not. But this year, instead of just hoping for things to happen, make some firm resolutions and script your own happy and healthy year. Here are a few things you should consider.
A healthy body ensures a happy mind. Ensure that you are taking care of your fitness and diet. Plan to get rid of the excess fat with a weight loss routine or gain muscle power with strength training by the end of the year. But ensure that your goals are achievable, realistic, and relatively easy if you are a beginner.
Even if you are unable to attend a gym regularly, try to consult a personal trainer and schedule your training program at home. It would be one of the greatest investments you’d make in your life.
You have organized days – You have an organized life. Even if it’s a weekend, try to make a plan, set some simple goals on what you need to accomplish on those days. Even if it’s a small one, the psychological satisfaction you achieve for such things is immense. No one can be perfect at that, but getting close to it is definitely a win. Try getting as close as you can!
It’s easy to forget your pastimes when you commence your professional lives with busy schedules. But try to indulge in them every now and them. It may be playing cricket, reading novels, photography, cooking, watching your favourite genre of movies, or even listening to music. Set some time aside for such activities and you’ll not regret it. It rejuvenates your body and mind like nothing else.
Free yourself from the clutches of electronic media, internet, and your mobile phones for a few minutes every day and spend some quality time with your family. Discuss your day and share your experiences, interesting ideas and thoughts with them. If your schedule doesn’t allow this to perform on a daily basis, do this for some good time during the weekends.
It’s very important to mingle socially with your friends, neighbours, and colleagues whenever you find the opportunity. Don’t miss the chance to participate in outdoor events and special occasions whenever it is there for the taking. Even if you are going for a daily run or a morning walk, try to find a friend or partner for the activity. It helps a lot.
All your efforts in changing your lifestyle for the good can be in vain if you can’t quit unhealthy addictions. If you have a heavy addiction to smoking, drinking alcohol, or even junk food, it can be tough to quit all at once. So try to quit them in phases, in a step-by-step manner.
We wish and hope that you make your 2018 highly efficient, productive, and healthy!
