Another year is here, and presumably most people were excited to bid farewell to 2020. Regardless of what happens in the New Year, you can set the tone in a positive light by incorporating very simple healthy habits that will serve you well for years to come.
Incorporate simple healthy habits that are easy to follow no matter what’s happening in the world around you!
Make more time for sleep
We all feel deep regrets for the naps we refused to take as children. Now, as adults, we wish we had more time for rest. But in all honesty, we still have time. We compromise ourselves trying to take on too much.
This year try to end that cycle by setting a firm bedtime for yourself. You can select a bedtime alarm on your phone that will tell you when to put out that midnight oil and get ready for bed. Read a few pages of a good book and then pull up the covers. You’ll start feeling happier and less anxious when you take this time for yourself.
Take time to unplug from the digital world
So much of what we do involves being digitally-tethered. We’re always on our devices for work, and when we’re done for the day, we’re entranced with our smartphones and the endless barrage of social media platforms.
Remember the days when the internet was an escape from reality? Now we need to make reality an escape from the online world. Unplug from your devices each day at a particular time and make time for those in the real world under your roof. Make time for yourself too. You’ll be no good to anyone else if you’re not in tune with your own beat.
These suggestions might seem small, but they will make a big difference in how you charge forth into the New Year. Going into a new year with strength and a positive attitude is the best way to stay on top no matter what happens.
