I’ve never really been one to make New Year’s resolutions because I find that so often they’re approached with an “all or nothing” mentality. Instead, I set a few goals that I can work towards throughout the year, then evaluate my success when the year ends. I try to set goals for all the different aspects of my life: career, family, travel and health.
This year, with my 35th birthday just a few weeks away, health is a big focus for the upcoming year. Since moving to a city townhouse, my daily walks to run errands and take my boys to school have been eliminated. And that means my exercise level has gone way down. Plus, with takeout places now just minutes away, I’ve been eating out a little more than I’d like. So the new year is the perfect time for me to take charge and improve my health once and for all!
First off, I’m committing to exercising three times a week. As much as I’d prefer to set the goal of exercising every day, I think that trying to do too much too soon is likely to lead to giving up on the entire idea. But three days of doing a half-hour walk on the treadmill followed by half an hour of yoga is an easier commitment that I know I’ll be able to maintain.
Next, I’m improving my nutrition. Making sure I drink enough water every day is something that I’ve struggled with for years, so I’m going to be putting a chart on the fridge and checking off a box for every glass of water I drink. That way, if I’m a couple of glasses short of my goal at the end of the day, I can drink them before bed and still meet my requirement!
I’ll also be ensuring my body has the nutrients it needs with the help of some of my favourite Orange Naturals products. MagPop! is my new personal favourite product and since I know that I generally don’t get enough magnesium in my diet, it’s a must-have for me. The fun orange-flavoured drink is naturally sweetened with stevia and provides essential magnesium and Vitamin C! I also love Orange Naturals Probiotics for Adults to help aid my digestion. It’s so helpful for ensuring that I’m getting the maximum benefits from the foods I eat.
