I’m not setting a resolution for myself in 2021, but I still plan to make this my healthiest year using a few important tips. I’ve put together my top five for making sure I’m taking the best care of myself and am avoiding the pitfalls and mistakes I made last year.
Looking Forward to My Healthiest Year Yet
When I say I’m correcting issues from last year and am setting up for my healthiest year yet, this doesn’t mean I’m being hard on myself. Last year was difficult, to say the least. When it came to self-care, it was challenging to think of health tips beyond wearing a mask whenever I left the house.
I ate more cookies during those 366 days (it was a leap-year) than I likely have in the past three years combined. Am I going to beat myself up for that? Nope! Not one bit. Last year, I did what I did. This year is about moving forward. It’s about finding ways to feel great about what I’m eating and how I’m living, without feeling restricted or deprived. It’s about making smarter choices. I don’t have 2020 as an excuse anymore. If this year is going to be my healthiest year yet, it’s up to me to make it that way.
My Top 5 Tips to Get My Healthiest Year Yet Out of 2021.
The following are the top 5 ways I’m making this the healthiest year yet. I’ll be doing other things, of course, but from my list of tweaks, changes and goals, these are the ones I think are the most important overall.
1 – Eating Smarter
Am I still going to eat cookies during my healthiest year yet? I sure am! But cookies won’t be a meal. They won’t be a food I use to satisfy hunger. Cookies and other sugary treats (including pop) will be a sweet treat I can enjoy now and again, such as after a good meal on a relaxing Saturday evening.
2 – Drinking Water
I’m not sure when it happened, but at some point in 2020, I stopped drinking as much water as I know is right for me. I don’t subscribe to the eight 8-ounce glasses per day idea. We all need different amounts of water based on a lot of factors. But I’m also darned sure that I’m dehydrated a lot, and I don’t seem to be doing much about it. That will change to make this my healthiest year yet.
3 – Supplementing Smart with the Strongest Diet Pills
I’ll stop always looking for the strongest diet pills, and will rewire my brain to look for the best ones for me, instead. I’ll look for a trusted American company, clinically researched ingredients, and benefits that will support me in reaching my goals, not pretend that they will do the work for me (because who really believes that claim anymore, anyway?).
4 – Reviewing My Workouts
I seem to have fallen into a solid workout routine. Usually, that’d be great. However, it’s important to take a closer look at exercises we’ve been doing for a while to make sure they’re still doing what they should be. Some of my workouts have become too easy for me, and I’ve let them. They’re not challenging me anymore, so they’re not doing as much for me as they could. Other workouts have become too challenging as I haven’t been doing them as much or haven’t been putting everything I have into them. I need to adjust those so that I can build back up to the level I’d previously reached.
5 – Getting Up More
I’ve set a goal for myself to get up for at least 5 minutes every hour, even if that’s split into two sessions of two and a half minutes. Regardless of whether I’m working, reading, or binging a show, I’m not going to go more than an hour without getting up and moving around for at least five minutes. This is going to be the biggest change for me as I make this the healthiest year yet.
