It's a brand new year, and that means that there might be some catching up for you to do. While the holidays are a lot of fun, there's also a lot of partying and calories that come along with them. A lot of people have goals to get back on track in the new year, whether you're one of them or not, it's still important to refresh and rejuvenate your body after a few weeks, or months, of packing on the calories. Whether it's by drinking a little too much alcohol, or just munching on a few more cookies than you expected, we're all guilty of indulging a little too much. But have no fear, there's plenty of time to cancel out those calories! So here's some tips to help you get back on track and give your body a fresh start in this brand new year.
1. Take care of your mental health and wellbeing.
Let's face it, if you're not where you want to be mentally, you're never gonna get where you want to be physically. The biggest obstacle to get over when it comes to staying in shape and living a healthy lifestyle is that little voice in your head telling you that you can't do it, or it's not worth it. If you're taking care of your mental health, and valuing who you are as a person, you're already one step closer to living a healthier lifestyle.
2. Try a cleanse.
Whether it's a juice cleanse, or you're drinking some tea (which is what cleanse I'm doing right now) both are great options to flush out all of those toxins and calories that are in your system now.
3. Drink lots of water.
Water is another great way to keep your body running clean and smooth. It's helps to flush out toxins in your system, keep your metabolism going, and keep you feeling good. Staying hydrated is so important to make sure that you're feeling like your best self everyday.
4. Get on a clean diet.
This is one that I'm trying to keep myself on as well. While I love drinking water and focusing on self-care and love, I struggle with following a clean diet. I love carbs. Pizza, pasta, bread, you name it, I'll eat it. And at the same time, I'm not the biggest fan of salads as a meal. So I'll be working hard to follow some of my own tips as well!
5. Get into a workout schedule.
There's truly power in strength and confidence. While mental health is really the first step to getting into a healthy routine, there's no better way to bolster your self-confidence than by working out and seeing change and growth in your body.
So here's a few tips to take into the new year with you to make 2018 your best and healthiest year yet! It's hard to stay on track during the holidays, but there's no better time to get back on the wagon than in a brand new year.
