More tips for starting the year off right. We know it’s tough, so here’s yet another blog post helping the NEW YOU out this new yar.
Setting Goals for a New You
Setting goals is easy; the challenge is the fulfilling-the-goals-part. And I have to admit, I’ve also faced a lot of challenges and struggles on my end. Like many, I can bet that one of your goals this year is to be healthier. If you’re not aiming for that washboard abs then I’m sure you just want to feel better about yourself. A goal will only be attainable if you know where to start and most of the people I know fail because of this first step. So to give you a little boost on your “Healthier You Project”, here’s a quick guide you can even probably print out to keep you on track!

Setting Goals for a New Year & New You!
1. Try a full day of plant-based diet.
By focusing on a fully plant-based diet at least one day a week, you will discover uses for beans, peanuts, and other vegetarian sources of protein that you might not have considered.
2. Drink up.
Most of us don’t get enough water and often may feel hungry when you actually need hydration. Make smart beverage choices like infusing plain water with fruit and drinking tea with a small amount of milk or sweetener and avoiding drinks that contain lots of extra calories from added sugar.
3. Eat at least five servings of vegetables a day.
The more the better, but eating at least five servings will help you eat more fiber, vitamins and minerals, and (hopefully) replace some of the less healthy foods you might normally eat.
4. Plan for physical activity.
Exercise doesn’t just happen. Be intentional and realistic. Get into the habit of visiting the gym or taking a walk after work or at lunch a few days each week. Focus on a schedule that makes sense for your lifestyle.
5. Make breakfast a priority.
Eating a nutritious breakfast is a great way to start off the day, ensuring that you’re ready to tackle whatever comes.
