Resolutions for Physical and Nutritional Health
2. Get moving with small steps
Every workout routine has to start somewhere, so you shouldn’t feel like you must go all out initially. One study even says that a 10-minute walk can be as productive in relieving anxiety as a more strenuous 45-minute workout. Walking over different gradients or picking up your pace at specific stretches can be great. Why not hop on the treadmill or head to the foothills?
3. Consider more plant-based options
We all know we’re supposed to eat more vegetables than we probably are. Yet changing our eating habits isn’t always that simple. Some people find it’s easier to work more veggies into their morning routine with yummy banana spinach. Others might opt for “Meatless Mondays” to try to cut back on their red meat intake. Both can be wise choices.
Pay Attention to Your Community Connections
Your volunteer efforts don’t just help the greater good — it’s also good for you! People who dedicate time to volunteering consistently feel a deeper sense of purpose and fulfillment. You can lower your stress levels and even make new friends. To get started, check out these volunteer options around Boise.
5. Nurture your valued friendships
It doesn’t matter if you’re an introvert or an extrovert. Studies show that good, reciprocated friendships directly relate to your happiness. That’s why it’s important to ensure you’re giving time to those connections. Schedule a time to talk or meet up with the ones you love. Your friends are just as important as your family.
