I am so happy to be back and decided to do a fun little New Year’s post. I know it’s a little late, but I don’t think being the best you has to be a New Year’s resolution. It can be an anytime decision 🙂
That being said I have found a few things that leave me feeling at my best and I wanted to share those with you today!
Mental/Brain Health: When I have found myself in need of a brain break or feeling stressed, doing something like coloring helps calm me down. It’s focusing on something else and I get some clarity about the situation.
If you’re not a coloring fan I love this meditation I found on YouTube many years back!
Eye Health: This is something we all ignore until it becomes a problem! It’s important to get your eyes checked yearly. They give us so much and ask so little in return! Let’s give our eyes some love this year. Make sure your contacts/glasses prescription is current and correct!
After your check up, go and find your perfect pair by taking this quiz by Warby Parker. They have some seriously cute eye glasses and sunglasses. Remember that it’s important to protect your eyes from the sun!
Skin Health: It’s winter, but don’t forget about your skin! Whether it’s moisturizing or applying sunscreen it’s an important part of your health. Major tip by the way you should be doing BOTH whether it’s cloudy, sunny, snowy, rainy…whatever the weather!
Gut Health: Your gut can be considered your second brain. How your gut feels can affect how YOU feel. Not having proper bacteria in your stomach can cause you to feel tired and run down…you DO NOT want that! Take time to eat your fruits and veggies for some good fiber.
I’ve been loving kombucha as well to help keep my gut in check. Just be sure and check the sugar content before buying a bottle! Low sugar is the way I go for my ‘buch fix 🙂
Physical Health: It’s so important to take time to move. It doesn’t matter if it’s walking, dancing, or playing sports you gotta keep your body moving. It releases endorphins which in turn goes back to helping us with our mental health!
I enjoy yoga and using resistance bands when I’m working out at home. YouTube and Pinterest have some great ideas for both plus any other exercise you may be interested in.
Health is about ALL of you. When you’re strong and healthy as a whole you feel your best and that is a great goal to have!
Let me know what your goals are for this year in the comments below. Till next time!
