And we’re off!
I’m guessing you don’t even feel like you’ve had some time off? A nice relaxing break? By now most of us are back at the office and have had to hit the ground running. Thanks for the slow introduction 2018…
I’m also sure that you’ve all embraced 2018 as the year for #NoReason and you’ve completed the Wheel of Life tool available via our campaign page on our website.
Awesome! You now know where to focus your self-improvement activities for the rest of the year. If not sure where to start, don’t worry – each month we’ll make some suggestions and provide you with a self-assessment activity for each of the different Wheel of Life spheres. For example, in February we focus on Financial Fitness.
What to do in January then? A little self-love J I think you can start the year off on the right foot by focusing a little time and energy on your health! Why you ask? #NoReason
Here are 10 small changes you make – be it one a day, one a week or one a month – that all work towards a healthier you.
Focus on the positive. Give yourself a break and focus on what’s good about your body. Put some emphasis on what you are already doing well.
Keep a food diary. Tracking your meals helps you to make better, healthier, more conscious decisions about what you eat. (There are loads of great apps available that make meal tracking super easy.)
So no to sugar. #NoReason.
Give meal prep a go. It’s a lot easier to eat healthy and clean when you have meals-to-go in your fridge. Set aside one day a week to plan and prep for food.
Start a new workout routine or programme. Change it up a bit, keep it fun – shock your body.
Drink water every morning. You wake up dehydrated after a night’s sleep, a glass of water first thing in the morning helps you to feel refreshed and can contribute to weight loss.
Aim for 10 000 steps a day. You’d be surprised of the benefits walking can have on your mental health, never mind your fitness goals.
Say goodbye to junk food… and obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease. (Like you needed a reason?)
Meditate. Ok so it’s not every ones thing, but find something you can do on your own, daily, to help you reduce the impact of daily stressors. Read a book? Take a swim?
Get more sleep. Another no-brainer, #NoReason.
Remember a little progress each day adds up to big results.
All the best, Charmz
