Let CANVIVA Help You Achieve Your New Year’s Resolutions.
Happy New Year! It is time to make your New Year’s resolutions to do better, be better, feel better.
Right about now, you might be thinking, “it’s too hard, and I didn’t reach all of my goals from 2019.” That’s okay. The new year is a great time to reassess your goals. First, take a moment to congratulate yourself on making it through the holidays. Second, pat yourself on the back for getting through 2019. And finally, give yourself credit for what you have achieved.
We understand that making resolutions to improve lifestyle habits can be challenging. 80% of us make resolutions that will fail. Unrealistic goals are usually to blame for not achieving most of them.
Below are five (5) ideas for achievable resolutions that we think will help improve your well-being and lead to lasting habits.
5 Resolutions That Can Help You Achieve Better Health.
Resolve to Stay Active.
According to Science Daily, 22% of coronary heart disease, 22% colon cancer, 18% osteoporotic fractures, 12% of diabetes and hypertension, and 5% of breast cancer is due to lack of physical activity. Improving your health is a good reason to make working out a resolution. Decide what you want from your workouts and pick something you enjoy doing. That way, you’ll stick with it longer. Exercise helps control weight, builds muscles and bones, and improves balance, posture, and your mood, but don’t forget to exercise your mind! Stay sharp, stay focused. Play cards, take a class, volunteer, write a letter. According to the American Heart Association, “brain health is essential to living a long and full life.”
Resolve To Get More Rest & Relaxation.
A good night’s rest helps you be your best. Try for 7 to 8 hours. Go to bed and get up at the same time each day. It’s as important as getting enough sleep. Relaxation is vital to your physical and mental health. According to ADAA (Anxiety and Depression Association of America), anxiety disorders affect 18.1% of the adult population. Don’t forget to reboot during the day, too! Put away the phone, get off social media, and limit screen time. Instead, take a moment to stare out the window, stand up and stretch, or take a 15-minute walk outside. It’ll be good for your body and your attitude.
Resolve To Eat Better.
Be mindful of what you eat. It can lead to a more balanced diet. Eat more fruit, vegetables, whole grains, fish, and low-fat dairy. Eat less sugar to help decrease your chance of heart disease, obesity, and type 2 diabetes. If you’re older, you may need fewer calories. A balanced diet is an essential part of overall well being. Don’t forget to stay hydrated. Doing so helps digestion, circulation, transports nutrients, and more. Experts say we often confuse hunger for thirst, so try a glass of water before having a second helping.
Resolve To Do Things That Make You Happy.
Take something off your to-do list to make room for something more meaningful, something you want to do. If you resolve to get more exercise, but you detest running, don’t! Instead, do an activity you enjoy. For example, if you like spending time with friends, suggest meeting them for a long walk. An analysis by the London School of Economics says positive relationships and good health impact happiness more than income.
Resolve To Add CBD To Your Wellness Regimen.
Research shows that CBD may help your Endocannabinoid System (ECS) keep your body functions in balance. Plus, CBD, unlike THC, is non-addictive and can’t get you high. CANVIVA’s phytocannabinoid-rich full spectrum cannabinoid (CBD) oil is organic and grown in the U.S. We carry a complete line of CBD oil tinctures and topicals developed with your specific wellness goals in mind, perfect for helping turn resolutions into habits.
