If you’ve resolved to live a healthier life this New Year, then we have the tips to help you achieve your goals. Here’s our top 5 Tips for Healthy Living in 2018:
WRITE DOWN YOUR GOALS
Make time to document your vision. Write down details. Set benchmarks. What will it take to accomplish your dream? There have been many studies to prove that those who write down their goals are far more likely to accomplish more than those who don't.
PROTEIN, PROTEIN & MORE PROTEIN
30 grams of protein for breakfast is essential to stay in a positive nitrogen balance, feel fuller longer, keep blood sugar levels consistent throughout the day and maintain muscle mass. Aim for a total of at least 90 grams of protein each day.
Cardio is great, but it's important not to skip weight lifting. More reps with less weight will help burn fat and maintain muscle without bulking up. Benefits of strength training include: weight loss, protection against injury, healthier bones and improved confidence.
DRINK MORE WATER
Our bodies lose water through breathing, sweating and digestion. Water is used in our cells, organs and tissues to help regulate body temperature. Staying hydrated is essential to all our major bodily functions. So, cut back on the soda and DRINK MORE WATER.
Quality sleep is just as important to your health as nutrition and physical activity. Adequate sleep is necessary to: fight off infection, support the metabolism of sugar, perform well in school, and work effectively and safely.
We promise if you make each of these tips part of your everyday lifestyle, you will look and feel healthier this year.
