We are now a month into the new year and it seems we’re all looking to become a healthier, happier, better version of ourselves. But, as any neglected resolutions in this past month may have proven, it doesn’t just happen. You have to make it so. Here are the top 5 tips to help you reach your health goals in 2022, no matter what they might be.
1. Practice Mindful Eating
No matter whether your goal is to lose weight, build muscle, or simply to look and feel better, you must give your body the sustenance it needs to thrive. There’s no one-size-fits-all strategy for doing this, though, regardless of what the diet books say.
That’s where mindful eating comes in. Mindful eating involves a new perspective on food, an appreciation of the role of food in both nourishing and nurturing your body. It is eating slowly and deliberately, giving your body the nutrients it needs without depriving yourself of the pleasure of food.
2. Hone in on Your Sleep Hygiene
You can’t possibly reach your health goals if you’re not giving your body the rest it needs. Unfortunately, though, many of us live in a constant state of sleep deprivation. That’s why learning to practice good sleep hygiene is so important. This means developing a consistent nighttime ritual to help you prepare your mind, body, and spirit for sleep. Use activities that you find most relaxing, whether it’s a nice warm bath, a soothing cup of tea, or curling up in bed with a great book or relaxing music.
Above all, be sure to turn off the devices at least a couple of hours before bed, as blue light emissions can disrupt your circadian rhythms and interfere with melatonin production. Also, to get your body and mind into a healthy sleep pattern, be sure to go to bed and get up at the same time every day.
3. Get a Move On
Your body doesn’t just need nourishing food and quality sleep to be healthy. It also needs physical activity to keep your musculoskeletal system strong and flexible, your organ systems oxygenated, and your mind clear and alert. The kinds of physical activity you choose, though, are up to you, your needs, goals, and interests. You might take up golf or horseback riding. Or, you might sign up for salsa dancing or yoga classes. The key is to get moving, get breathing, and get involved in activities you love.
4. Nurture Your Mind and Spirit
When we’re pursuing our health goals, it’s easy to become so focused on the body that we forget about our mind and spirit. True wellness, though, means being healthy and happy in all these aspects of life and living. That’s why it’s imperative to do something each day that helps lift your mood, manage anxiety and stress, and feel better overall.
That might mean journaling each night before bed or starting the morning with the list of things you’re grateful for or the goals you want to accomplish that day. You might spend an hour or two each week in nature or visiting with friends. The ultimate object is simply to ensure that every day you’re nurturing your mind and spirit as well as your body.
5. Serve Others
One of the best ways to achieve your health goals, as paradoxical as it may seem, is to spend time helping others. Whether you’re volunteering at a local hospital or helping your community by planting trees or tending a public garden, when you engage in service, you’re going to be more physically active, more socially connected, more mentally engaged, and more spiritually fulfilled. And all of those attributes are essential to good health!
