New Year’s Resolutions for a Healthier You

New Year's Resolutions

Making New Year’s resolutions is a tradition for about 45% of Americans this time of year.  On the Top 10 New Year’s Resolutions for 2014, losing weight took the #1 spot.  Staying fit and healthy was #5.  How do you rate your most important resolutions to the least important?  I’ve decide what needs to be on my list for 2015.  Make a conscience effort to drink more water is #1, followed by eating healthier, and then lose weight.  If I can follow the first two, then the weight loss will pretty much naturally happen.

Drinking water is a challenge for me because of the love I have for diet soda (although I have gotten better at the amount I drink daily).  Whether you choose to buy bottled water or prefer to have a filtering system (filtered water pitcher, etc.) in your home, adding water to your daily intake is very important.  If you don’t enjoy drinking plain water, get creative and add slices of lemon, limes, cucumbers, or anything else you love that gives that added flavor to entice you to drink more!  If you don’t prefer going the bottled water route (you might be trying to be environmentally friendly) look into purchasing a water filter pitcher so that you have clean, fresh water at your finger tips.

Let’s face it folks, when you have good health, everything else is icing on top.  You may list things like spend more time with family, getting organized, quitting smoking (GOOD one), falling in love, etc., (these were also listed on the top 10 for 2014) but to be able to achieve those you need to stay healthy.  It doesn’t matter how much money you are striving to make if you aren’t healthy enough to be out there spending it on the things that you love or want to do.  We all need to slow down and take more time for ourselves.  Try to start adding a long hot soaking bath at the end of your day, or perhaps meditation.  Strive to get more sleep to let your body recover from a stressful day.

How many times have you heard someone say, “if I knew back then what I know now, I would have taken better care of myself”?  When we are young, I think most of us don’t stop to think about the future, not just next year, but years to come.  We tend to live in the moment.  It’s important to start making lifestyle changes now to stay as healthy as possible for as long as possible.

Remember to take a few minutes to visit to check out the wide variety of water and air filtration systems that they offer.  You will be amazed at what is available to give you a fresh start for the New Year and make a healthier you!  Tis’ the season to start getting healthy!
