New year, new goals! As we step into 2019, most of us are thinking about personal resolutions and how we are going to achieve them.
In regards to your health, there are tons of small changes you can make that are easy to stick to, and can actually make a big positive impact on your overall health!:
Drink more water – Drinking more water will help you stay hydrated, increase your energy, and even promote weight loss. Having trouble sticking to it? Try setting alarms on your phone or downloading an app that provides you with daily reminders.
Support your gut – Your gut is the underlying powerhouse to your immune system! It’s where all of your nutrients from the food you eat gets absorbed and transported throughout your body. An easy way to keep it healthy is by slowing down on the refined carbs and eating more fermented foods. This includes yogurt, kefir and sauerkraut.
Improve your digestion – When your digestion is working optimally, you don’t need to worry about weight gain or bloating. This can be done by eating more fiber and leafy greens in your diet, eating smaller, more frequent portions, and chewing your food more!
More meal prep, less eating out – Eating at restaurants frequently can lead you to having more calories, more unhealthy foods, and less money! Try budgeting these meals, or keeping yourself accountable by only going out once or twice a week.
