  1. Eat more whole foods: The most straightforward way to start a healthy year is to eat more whole and healthy foods (such as vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, and pure protein sources) and fewer processed foods (like bread, cheese, processed meats & pre-made frozen meals).
  2. Choose a Long-Term Diet: Rather than fad diets that promise immediate results while jeopardising your metabolic and mental health, choose a long-term diet. Diets that you won’t be able to stick to once you’ve attained your goal weight without feeling deprived in the long run. It’s not worth the effort to be concerned that your weight will return once you resume eating without following a strict diet.
  3. Increase your vitamin D intake: Vitamin D supplementation is beneficial not just for bone and immune system health, but it can also help you avoid chronic health issues (including heart disease, diabetes, and some cancers) and even promote hair growth. As a result, get some sun for at least 15-20 minutes every day and take a vitamin D pill on top of that (no more than 4,000IU per day).
  4. Incorporate movement into your everyday routine: Whether you’re working out, playing a sport, or simply taking a walk, movement is important. It’s vital to get your circulation flowing and boost oxygen delivery to every part of your body for optimal performance. Make it a point to incorporate some form of physical activity into your daily routine.
  5. Make sleep a priority: Because overworking has become a badge of honour in our society, we often wind up prioritising socialising over sleeping. We push our bodies to extremes by depriving them of sleep and over-caffeinating them, which leads to anxiety and weakened immunological systems. Sleep deprivation and poor quality sleep can cause serious health difficulties like insulin resistance, neurological issues, weight gain, depression, and anxiety, to mention a few. As a result, in order for our bodies to perform at their optimum, we need to get 7-8 hours of good sleep each night.
  6. Reduce stress: Stress plays a role in almost every health issue, from heart disease, obesity, and diabetes to digestive diseases (such as IBS, GERD, and gastrointestinal issues) and depression. Stress can come from both inside and outside the body. The ultimate goal, however, should be to eliminate all stress.
    While it is nearly difficult to completely eliminate stress, you can minimise it by engaging in activities such as meditation, yoga, deep breathing, exercise, counseling, or whatever else you enjoy that help you disconnect from the outer world and reconnect with yourself. “Me time” isn’t a frivolous pleasure.
  7. Establish a daily habit: Having a morning routine is akin to prioritising yourself and showing up for yourself. It’s the same as respecting and prioritising your own needs. Following a morning routine allows you to start your day off right by being in tune with yourself before interacting with the rest of the world. Rather than letting your day to control you, you take control of it this way.
  8. Repeat your daily affirmations aloud: Repeating your affirmations aloud will not turn you into a narcissist, but it will help you maintain the right energy and perspective. Positive self-talk can change unbelief, self-doubt, negative thinking, and body shaming attitudes into appreciation and romanticising your existence. As a result, don’t overlook the value of positive affirmations.

Follow these 8 ways to lead a healthy lifestyle this new year.
