Try as we all might, there’s no ignoring all the “new year, new me” resolutions buzzing around social media, and mainstream media. We’re here to help squash the resolutions, and create a much healthier approach to ease into the new year. Chuck the whole resolution concept and focus on a ‘theme’ for the year!
When we want to truly change a behavior or create a new habit, it takes a substantial amount of time to make the changes so that the changes and habits stick around for the long haul. With a theme, you can create realistic goals towards your chosen theme, and hold yourself accountable with one change at a time. One change at a time is the best way to create a healthier lifestyle you can carry with you for years to come.
When your theme is improving your health, one of the first steps is detoxing from all the holiday celebrations. Which makes a lot of sense. Cleaning out the body helps your body and mind set itself up for success. Detoxing helps clear out the insides, and with a strong gut and your body’s systems running a bit smoother, it’s the perfect time to mentally prepare for planning and setting realistic health goals for not just your physical well-being, but also your mental well-being.
Our bodies and minds work together and can only benefit from specific, targeted health objectives! So ‘Clean slate it’. And give yourself a little immunity boost now that you’re a clean slate and your body is at its best to absorb all the best things we introduce it to!
Realistic Health Goals You Can Achieve
As you’re detoxing, get your health intentions on paper! But don’t just write down a list of health goals and leave it at that. Be specific and intentional with your goals. Plan these goals out. Map out how:
- you’ll achieve the goals
- create healthier habits
- change current unhealthy habits
When setting your goals for the year, there are a few things to keep in mind so you can maximize your chances for achieving new habits and changing unhealthy ones, along with any other health goals for your chosen theme for this year.
You know yourself, and even with the best of intentions, when push comes to shove you need to be realistic about what you want to achieve. Consider the health theme you have chosen for yourself, and brainstorm what you can do to achieve this theme without disappointing yourself.
Let’s say your theme for the year is eating a plant-based diet. Your first goal isn’t “give up eating all meat and only eat vegetables”. It’s just not going to work if your meals for your entire life have included meat proteins in large quantities. A more realistic first goal is to make the decision to increase your vegetable intake with each meal.
