It’s never too late to make 2021 a great year. Check out this list of 10 tips to live a happier and healthier 2021!
1. Go Nuts
Did you know nuts offer plant protein, healthy fats, magnesium, zinc, and vitamin E? Nuts are the perfect addition to any salad, ice cream, or treat!
2. Meal Prep
Meal prepping is the perfect way to enjoy healthy and tasty meals all week without being on the stove every night. Try cooking on Sundays to meal prep and then enjoy all week long!
3. Drink Water
When you think you’ve had enough, drink more! Drinking water keeps you hydrated, regulates body temperature, promotes weight loss, boosts energy and performance, helps you focus, and more. If you find it difficult to drink water throughout the day, try adding flavor with fruit!
4. Limit Screen Time
Today’s overwhelming access to technology can sometimes lead to an information overload. Limiting your screen time can help reduce stress and anxiety. When you feel the need to scroll on your phone, try taking a walk or playing a board game!
Journaling is a great way to decompress and reflect after a long day. It’s the perfect place to write down both positive and negative thoughts, feelings, or fears to get them off your chest.
6. Practice Self-Care
At some point, everyone gets overwhelmed or burnt out from the stress of everyday life. Don’t forget to practice self care, whatever that my look like for you. Walking outdoors, taking a bath, listening to music, journaling, or anything else that makes you happy can be a form of self care.
7. Sleep Better
Going to bed early and getting up early can help boost your productivity and mood! Try turning off all screens an hour before you go to bed for a better night’s rest.
8. Have Gratitude
With the stress and anxiety of everything going on in today’s world, it’s easy to forget how much you have to be thankful for. Making a gratitude list can help ground you when feeling overwhelmed.
9. Eat Breakfast
Seriously, breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. Start your day off on the right foot by enjoying a nutritious breakfast to improve your productivity and concentration.
10. Organize Your Space
Did you know organizing can help reduce stress and increase productivity? Starting your organizational process can be overwhelming, but you don’t have to do everything all at once. Start by tackling a small project every week! Your car, home, office, closet, and pantry will thank you later.
