2020 may have been a stress-filled year filled with challenges, but the new year thankfully brings about an opportunity for rebirth and change. This year, strive to make healthier choices that will bring about a better quality of life.
Writing your list of resolutions for 2021? Don’t forget to include these five healthy habits that will put the C in change!
Begin with the end in mind
As with anything, it’s important to set realistic health and fitness goals so you understand what you’re working towards. For example: do you want to lose weight? Or do you want to build more muscle? Are you working to bring your blood pressure down, or are you aiming for a clean bill of health?
Setting realistic goals brings clarity in your fitness journey and allows you to outline the healthy steps you need to take. Before the year begins, take some time to sit down and really think about the health goals you want to achieve in 2021.
Discover the wonders of meditation.
With the hustle and bustle of everyday life, stress is inevitable and can get pretty overwhelming at times. Thankfully, maintaining a daily meditation practice can help in bringing peace and clearing up your mind.
A daily meditation habit can do wonders for your mental health and bring about much needed focus. Even just five minutes of meditation a day can drastically reduce your anxiety levels and improve your sleep quality.
Exercise can only get you so far—a nutritious diet should be an important part of your health game plan. After all, what’s the point of a strenuous workout schedule if you subsist solely on greasy fast food?
Eating healthier gets easier if you make an effort to prepare most of your meals at home. Remember: integrate more fruits and vegetables in your diet, try to ditch whole milk, and lessen your cholesterol intake.
Take sleep seriously.
Sleep is an important and often overlooked part of your health. While you’re asleep, your body repairs itself from the various stressors of your day.
Make a conscious effort to get your daily eight hours of shut-eye. Decrease your caffeine consumption if needed, reduce blue-light exposure at night, and strive to maintain a consistent and adequate sleep schedule.
Make Vitamin C a daily habit.
Most importantly, don’t let unexpected illnesses get in the way of achieving your health goals. Pharex C’s Vitamin C is a supplement that helps increase the body’s resistance from infectious diseases. It is non-acidic and retails at only P6.75 per capsule.
