Forget about the new year new you thing, this year is for a healthier, happier you!
There are only two months left in 2019 and now is the perfect time to rethink your habits and lifestyle choices so you can truly welcome a healthier chapter in your life. And what better way to choose the best new Year’s resolutions than letting health experts do it for you!
What’s interesting about these resolutions is that sticking to them is as easy as choosing them. Behind each resolution, there’s science, psychology, and an efficient plan.
These are the top seven New Year’s resolutions that health professionals want you to make.
#7 – Write down the good things in your life
Making the famous resolution of being happier this year will be impossible to keep if you don’t have a plan of action. So, one efficient way to walk the path of happiness is to keep a journal or diary where you’ll write down the things you’re thankful for every morning.
Make sure to write at least one thing, even while you’re still in bed, and no matter how harsh life is at that time. This will help you think positive as well as introduce more joy to your daily life.
According to research, people who write down what they’re grateful for on a regular basis have fewer visits to the doctor, work out more, and sleep better.
If you’re not a journal person, turn to your smartphone for gratitude apps.
#6 – If you’re a cigarette quitter, treat yourself to something nice
Smoking is linked to higher risks for nasty diseases, from heart disease to cancer. And to stop smoking is the best New Year’s revolution out there. If you’re a smoker who wants to quit, keep in mind that it’s really hard but also very doable.
Nothing can beat a strong will! And if you did quit, then congratulations on your biggest step toward health and longevity. After all, you’ve been through, you deserve to be spoiled a little!
