kickstart a happier, healthier you in the new year! In today’s blog, discover some effective habits to transform your well-being and radiate positivity all year long.
Habit #1 Incorporate More Plant Based Meals
There are so many benefits of focusing on plant based foods for one or even two days a week. You don’t have to go completely vegan, but incorporating plant based days can show a positive change in your body and health. Plant based foods help support your immune system. This is because plant based foods have essential vitamins and minerals that you can’t get from other foods. They also contain antioxidants which help keep your cells healthy and your body in balance. This in turn, helps your immune system function better. By incorporating more plant based foods into your diet, your body will better be able to fight off infections and protect you against viruses and germs. A strong immune system will also help reduce your risk for developing chronic disease like cancer.
Habit #2 Plan Your Meals Ahead of Time
Meal prepping is a fantastic way to plan ahead and make sure you are eating healthy throughout the week. Some people choose one day to meal prep for the entire week, while others choose to break it up and meal prep on two separate nights. Either way, prepping your meals can save time and money so you don’t have to eat out during your work day.
Meal prepping also allows you to be more consistent with healthy eating. Not only is eating out expensive, oftentimes it isn’t the healthiest choice either. Although many restaurants offer healthy options – they sometimes load up your meals with extra salt or give you extremely large portions that can lead to weight gain overtime. When you make your meal at home, you can ensure you are using clean and simple ingredients and prepare your food the way you want it.
Habit #3 Stay Hydrated
Hydration is KEY to feeling your best. During the winter time, when it is cold, sometimes we forget to drink enough water. It is crucial we continue to make hydration a top priority even in the colder months. In order to stay hydrated, an adequate balance of water and electrolytes is crucial. Electrolytes are minerals (sodium, potassium, magnesium, etc.) that are involved in an abundance of internal events, such as neurotransmission and maintaining a balanced pH in the blood.
