This is the time of year when we all start considering our New Year’s Resolutions. So why not do it right this year?
It’s all well and good stating you are going to give up chocolate, do it for three weeks and then reach for a Snickers bar a lot, but that does not really change anything. New Year’s resolutions should change lives. You should look back a year from now and feel a sense of accomplishment that your life is now far better and healthier than before.
So, what healthy resolutions should you make for 2023 and truly stick to?
5K per day
If you are a running lover, why not commit to doing it every day, windy, rain or shine. 5K every day is a terrific way to do this without pushing yourself too hard or taking up too much time in a busy schedule.
Lots of individuals have done this, and incredible story from Ron Hill, a former British Olympian can provide the inspiration you need. Such was his love of running, he ran every day for 52 years and 39 days (19,032 days total!) during his life, only to stop as a result of poor health. He died just last year, lived to be 82 years old and was a big advocate of encouraging people to run for their physical and mental health.
There are dozens of great trails and running clubs throughout Atlanta, where you can sign up and run your ride.
No booze for a year
Alcohol is among the biggest killers on the planet and it is safe to say that many of us have an unhealthy relationship with it. It may come as no surprise to hear that millions of individuals have been through it alcohol rehabilitation problem worldwide and can be difficult to give up for those who are dependent or addicted.
Every January, millions of individuals give up alcohol for a month as part of Dry January, but why not step it up and turn one month into two, three, four, and so on?
Come December likelihood is you’ll feel different both mentally and physically, and be better too!
Focus on holistic fitness
When we consider being fit and healthy, we frequently consider physical fitness, which means running, cycling, swimming or going to the gym. However, setting holistic fitness goals can be just as powerful as taking your mental well-being into account. Committing to yoga every day can be just as rewarding as training and running a marathon, and by the end of the year, you will be feeling much fitter. What’s more, there are dozens of fantastic yoga classes in Atlanta, perfect for novices. You may even make new friends along the way!
