Even for those of us who aren’t big on New Year’s resolutions, the beginning of a new calendar year marks a clean slate — and that’s always a good feeling. Most New Year’s resolutions fail pretty early on in the year anyway, and it’s often because we’re a little overzealous with our goals and feel like giving up entirely if we slip up. Instead of setting a rigid resolution, we suggest trying the strategy of integrating new habits that will improve your overall physical health into your daily routine.
Although these habits and changes should be taken seriously (we’re talking about health, after all), small overall changes make it easier to move on after a bad day. If you slip up on one habit, you don’t need to feel like a failure — just look at the successes of the day. Not sure where to start? We’ve got you covered with some ideas that will result in a healthier body.
