Today is the last day of the year so that’s definitely the best time of the year to plan some New year’s resolutions for2019! The key is to set the right resolutions, small enough to be realizable. Indeed, it does not help us to set unworkable goals: we all want to set resolutions that will give us a feeling of satisfaction and joy when we realize it, even if it’s November!
We set for you some smart and basic resolution ideas according to your main objective.
If your goal for this new year is to get in better shapes, you can inspire you with one (or more) of the following resolution ideas:
🔸Plank 2 to 3 times a week
If your main resolution is to “get fit”, this one is “broad” to give him the best chances to be completed. If you really want to get fit, you have to set smart and basic goals to integrate to your daily routine. For example, holding your body in a plank could be the best way to do so. Maintain your body in a plank during one minute, once a day or at least 2-3 times during the week and you will see great results.
🔸Set a workout plan for every week
At the beginning of the week, choose the day you are going to work out and what type of training you are going to do. For example, you are going do a Yoga class on Tuesday, you will do an arm workout at the gym on Thursday and you go will go for a run on Sunday. It is just that simple! You can also use BeYou app to get a specific fitness plan for the week.
🔸Walk minimum 1000 steps a day
Even if it is a simple action, the fact to walk every day can bring good results and help you complete your objective faster. Walking is great for your general health.
If your main resolution is to eat better, try one (or more) of these goals instead:
🔸Eat a plant-based meal per day
Eating vegetables every day will improve your overall nutrition, provide you enough fiber, and improve your digestion.
🔸Prepare your meal for the week
Preparing a list and buying directly all the food you need to cook during the week will help you respect your plan. You can start to prepare small meals such as a grilled chicken, a slow-cooker soup or even a dozen eggs. You will eat healthier and even save some money!
🔸Cut alcohol during seven days
If you used to drink a cup of wine every day, you will see the benefits for your waistline and heart health. And then you opt to have a cup or two only during the weekends.
🔸Improve your gut health with probiotics
Eat at least once a day a fermented food or yogurt for example.
🔸Avoid sugary food
If this goal seems really difficult for you, you can begin by swapping out one sugary food for something with fewer calories once a day. For example, prefer honey to sugar. Or replace your chocolate cookie for an apple.
If your resolution is to improve your mental health and self-care, take time for you. Turn off your mobile phone or the wifi for 30 minutes per day and just breathe, read a book, or go for a walk in nature!
We hope that those new resolution ideas will help you to set your new goals for 2019 and we wish you
a happy new year! 🎉
