Happy New Year! If your resolution is to prioritize your health and wellness, you’re not alone. The two most common resolutions are to eat healthier and to exercise more, and this year is no different.
Not sure where to start on your health journey? Here are five ways to kickstart your health and wellness journey:
1.Increase Your Greens
Let’s face it, we could all use some more vegetables in our diets. And who wouldn’t want to start their day off with a fresh, fruit smoothie? Fortunately, adding leafy greens, like spinach or kale, to your smoothies are great ways to slide in those extra veggies without the taste.
Simply add a large handful of spinach to your blender, along with your favorite fruit, milk or juice. If you’re on the go, stop by your nearest Beyond Juicery + Eatery for our full menu of fresh smoothies.
2. Take Steps to Be More Active
For those who don’t regularly hit the gym, it may be overwhelming to start. Becoming more active can simply mean looking for small ways to get your body moving. For someone, that may be taking the stairs instead of the elevator, or taking your dog on an extra-long walk.
While this may seem like small changes, over time, they can provide huge benefits. If you’re looking for more activity, joining a gym or trying out a new workout class are other ways to find a fitness routine you’ll love, and more importantly, stick to.
3. Eat More Whole Foods
Skip the fad diets, one of the most sustainable ways to adjust your eating habits is incorporating more whole foods. Whole foods including vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, whole grains, and fish are packed with nutrients our bodies crave.
Here at Beyond Juicery + Eatery, we source only the freshest ingredients. From our 100% raw juices to our veggie packed wraps and signature salad bowls, we provide our communities with the freshest ingredients.
4. Plan and Prep Your Meals
A common reason people stray from healthier meals is they don’t have the time. Meal prepping ahead of time leaves you with mindful, time-saving healthy meals that fit in with your busy lifestyle.
5. Maintain a Positive Mindset
Mental health is just as important as physical health. This year, challenge yourself to maintain a positive mindset. A positive attitude keeps you motivated to stick with your other health and wellness goals.
Remember, a lifestyle doesn’t change overnight. Make these small changes, and you’ll be on your way to wellness in 2022 and Beyond.
