Building Blocks for a Healthier Lifestyle in 2021

Building Blocks for a Healthier Lifestyle in 2021

The beginning of a new year is traditionally a time when we look ahead to positive changes we can make to brighten our own future. Nowhere is this more evident than among those looking to make a healthier lifestyle shift. It is no secret that just one or two positive changes in daily habits can have lasting benefits that pay it forward year after year. But what is the secret to making healthy changes that will stick? Let’s take a look at some simple changes that yield the biggest rewards.

Drink More Water
The best healthy lifestyle benefit comes from adding in more water. From boosting cognitive function and energy levels to eliminating headaches and even shedding weight, just 64-80oz of water every day can have a tremendous effect on overall health and wellness. Try carrying a reusable bottle to keep track, adding a few drops of lemon or lime juice for flavor, and even adding in extra hydration through IV Hydration Therapy.

Focus on Fresh Foods
Packaged foods hide a multitude of fillers, flavor enhancers, unhealthy oils, and saturated fats. A focus on adding in fresh produce whenever possible – even just shifting to an apple for a morning snack instead of a bagel – can make a world of difference. Not sure where to start? Consider the Mediterranean Diet, with a focus on heart-healthy olive oil, nuts, seeds, berries, leafy greens, fresh tomatoes, and more.

Step It Up!
We all know that movement is an essential part of any healthy lifestyle, but motivation is the key. Find a tracking method that offers the reward necessary to keep the brain interested in coming back for more. Whether it’s a traditional step counter, progress on an imaginary journey, a morning run with an appreciative pet, or even a personal challenge to take the stairs whenever possible, if it motivates movement it’s a winner.

Make Room for Mindfulness
State of mind affects the body. Mental rest and replenishment are key to long-term positive change. Whether through regular meditation, quiet time spent in nature, or even deep breathing exercises in the car before heading home, taking time to go within and untangle the mind is a critical part of creating a healthy mind that supports a healthy body.
