7 Attainable Goals to Get on a Better Wellness Path

Whether you’re feeling motivated because it’s the start of a new year or just ready to give yourself a better path, these mini-resolutions can help get you where you want to be. Reviewing the pillars of wellness offers some great ideas for incorporating healthy behaviors into every day!

Resolutions for Physical and Nutritional Health

Making a goal to lose a few pounds or tone your muscles is all good, but going back to the basics of a better wellness plan is usually helpful. The following goals are generally easy to reach, which can go a long way toward boosting your morale:
1. Start your day refreshedDrinking a glass of water when you wake up can be a great kickstart to staying hydrated throughout the day. There are many different claims about what sipping on the water will do for you, but there’s no doubt that it’s a good habit to practice!

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

Strengthening your relationships and getting more involved with activities around town is another important component of any healthy lifestyle. Here are some good things to check for your mental and social wellbeing:4. Donate time to others

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.

Other Goals for Holistic Health and Wellness

These last couple of tips may not be as obvious as the rest, but they still play an important role in your overall wellness plan. Making sure you stay true to what matters most to you — and your well-being — is crucial at every age:
6. Honor your core values.Identifying your personal values is a great practice to help you become more intentional in every aspect of your life. Reflecting on this list of values, for example, may inspire you to adopt more “fun” or “respect for others” into your daily routine. (Those specific values certainly matter to us!)

7. Plan with preventative care

Lastly, we hope you’re making regular check-ups a key part of your health and wellness goals yearly. Staying up-to-date on routine tests will help you catch issues early and live your best life.
