It’s almost the New Year, and that means it’s time to set your New Year’s resolutions. Does it seem like you never follow through on your resolutions? You’re probably setting unachievable goals. Here are some easy resolutions that will help you live a happier and healthier life.
Eat More Veggies
Veggies are your body’s best friend. Eating a diet full of vegetables can help you slim down and keep you healthy. Vegetables have tons of health benefits, so commit to adding a serving to your meals in 2020.
Schedule Your Medical and Dental Exams
Here’s a simple resolution. Resolve to sit down and schedule all your medical and dental visits for 2020 at once. Schedule visits to your primary care provider and dentist, along with any specialists you need to see.
Buy Some Plants
It doesn’t get much easier than this. Commit to buying plants for your home in 2020. Live plants reduce stress and can even lower blood pressure. Plus, the air quality just seems so much better when plants are in the house.
Does it seem like you’re always pulled in multiple directions? Make a point to stop that in 2020. Organize your tasks into time blocks and tackle one at a time. You’ll feel less stressed, and you’ll be much more productive.
Start Taking the Stairs
Are you addicted to elevators? You’re so used to riding the elevator that you don’t even think of taking the stairs. Change that in 2020 by taking the stairs whenever possible. You’ll get an energy boost, plus some extra steps each day.
Clean Your Phone Each Week
Your cell phone is probably the germiest item you own. It goes everywhere with you, including public restrooms. Use disinfecting wipes to clean your phone each week. This simple resolution can keep you healthy throughout the year.
Volunteering is an excellent resolution for 2020. You will help others and yourself in the process. People who volunteer regularly report lower blood pressure and less stress. Plus, it feels good to do good for others.
Try New Hobbies
Were you a little bored in 2019? Avoid boredom by taking on new hobbies in 2020. The more engaged you are, the less bored you’ll be. Since boredom is linked to heart disease, this is crucial.
Take Your Lunch Break
Do you work through lunch? You might think it increases your productivity, but the opposite is true. You’ll get less done if you work through lunch, so take a lunch break each day. Take the whole break, too, even if that means you’re done eating and need to find something else to do. Take a stroll or read a book during the remaining time. You’ll be ready to get back to work when the break is over, and you’ll feel less stressed, as well.
