A new year, a new you. That’s what they say, right? 2019 has arrived, and it’s time to start thinking about resolutions, new habits, and health. These are 10 healthy habits you should adopt in 2019.
1.) Go On More Walks
Walking is one of the simplest ways to improve your health, life, and routine.
Experts say that just 30 minutes of walking a day reduces your risk of heart disease, improves blood pressure, and even helps to increase cardiovascular fitness.
2.) Spend Time in Nature
Nature has the ability to reset and renew one’s outlook on life.
Studies show that spending time in nature significantly decreases stress. Nowadays, so much of our lives are centered on screens and in indoor spaces, which leads to a host of health problems. In 2019, spend more time in nature and expect to experience an increase in your quality of life.
3.) Try Something New
As we age and become custom to a routine, it’s critical to continue trying new things. In 2019, commit yourself to stepping out of your comfort zone. Trying new things can lead to new hobbies, friendships, and ultimately, happiness.
We suggest rock climbing, hiking, tennis, or bowling.
4.) Evaluate Your Diet
More than ever before, physicians everywhere are acknowledging the significant impact that diet has on one’s overall health.
Evaluate your diet in 2019. Are you eating a balanced diet full of healthy carbs, nutritious vegetables, and clean proteins? Even making a few dietary changes can substantially improve your health.
5.) Get Your Yearly Physical
Your physical happens yearly for a reason. Year-to-year, your health can change a lot.
If you aren’t dedicated to your health each year, who is? Get your yearly physical. This helps you manage chronic conditions, monitor blood pressure, and identify areas of improvement.
6.) Spend More Time with Friends
Friends are nice to have around, but they also benefit you in other ways. Experts agree that friendships reduce stress, help you cope during hard times, and even encourage healthy habits.
7.) Learn to Say No]
When you say yes to everything, it can become hard to manage day-to-day responsibilities, anxiety, and eventually leads to burnout.
Learning to say no is a powerful skill that promotes self-care and balance. Start by saying no to little things, which inevitably allows you to make time to say yes to the fun things without feeling like you’re compromising too much.
8.) Get More Exercise
Exercise boosts endorphins, increases heart health, and increases our muscle’s ability to support our joints.
Running, yoga and weight training are great exercise routines. Try pairing up for a friend for extra fun.
9.) Get More Sleep
Sleep helps our bodies to maintain homeostasis, or balance. When you don’t get enough sleep, you are affected physically and mentally.
In order to keep up with day-to-day demands, try to get the recommended amount of sleep.
10.) Take CBD
Every few months, it seems like more research comes out in support of CBD.
CBD is a patented neuroprotective antioxidant, proven anti-inflammatory, helps with numerous regulatory functions, and provides the immune system with a consistent boost.
If you haven’t already, start taking CBD in 2019.
