Get More in 2019
Make this year your time to get “more” out of everything you do with our list of resolutions created to help you live your best life, not deprive you of what you love.
Eat More. This is not about binging on rich foods—that’s what we just did during the holidays! Now is the time to listen to our bodies and nourish them with what we are really craving. Sometimes we think we need a sweet or a snack when we are actually a little dehydrated, so try a glass of water first and see how you feel in 10 minutes—chances are the craving will be gone. Not sure where to start or what foods to choose? Check out Eating Well’s top five foods that are part of a balanced diet, proven to help you lose weight, keep your heart going strong and promote healthy, younger-looking skin.
Enjoy More. This is where you can skip the big ideas like, bungee jumping or learning to scuba dive. Enjoyment doesn’t have to be huge, it’s all the little things that make you smile and learning to appreciate life’s simple pleasures, from stepping outside to look at the stars to walking barefoot in the grass or sand to that first sip of coffee in the morning. We get so caught up in making Insta-moments that sometimes we miss what’s just beyond our iPhone.
Be Grateful More. Did you know that there are studies that show how gratitude can make you 25% happier? That’s according to Robert Emmons, PhD in his book, “Thanks! How the New Science of Gratitude Can Make You Happier”.Let that sink in for a second. By taking the time to reflect on the good things you have in your life, you can actually feel better and lighter. Being grateful can help you get along with others better, improve your quality of life and may even help you overcome adversity. Sounds great, but impossible? It’s not, click here for exercises from Daring to Live Fully’s guide to gratitude.
Move More. We all love Netfilx-ing on the couch but our bodies are made for movement and it feels really good when we get our blood flowing. Ease into it each day by parking a little further from the entrance, getting up to chat with a co-worker instead of sending an email or starting the day with a few simple stretches. Over time you’ll start to crave more activity, so you can add in walking, running, yoga or Pilates—and then maybe you try a new class or work out with a private instructor. The more you move, the more you want to, so begin now with a little help from everyone here at Flow Fitness.
