Happy New Year! I hope that everyone had a safe, fun, and blessed end to 2018. While I believe that any and every day we should strive to be our best, I understand the power that the start of a new year has to motivate. With that being said, I want to share five of my favorite New Year’s Resolutions.
1. To Do One Random Act of Kindness Per Day
Random acts of kindness are an amazing way to spread positivity. There are countless different things that one can do (more on that next week)! Ultimately, it matters more that you’ve done something nice for someone that you don’t know than what you’ve done. Essentially it is about putting good into the world.
2. Exercise At Least 30 Minutes Per Day
Exercising for at least thirty minutes a day is essential to stay healthy. Personally, I am a huge fan of CrossFit and High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), but that’s what works best for me. If that doesn’t work for you, then don’t force yourself to be miserable. It is most important to find what you can consistently enjoy doing. Regular exercise has numerous benefits including helping to prevent high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, obesity, and has been shown to improve one’s cognitive abilities, mood, and energy levels.
3. Drink Eight Glasses of Water Per Day
This is both the easiest and the hardest of my new year’s resolutions. It should be very easy to do, especially if I bring my water bottle around with me all day. However, it is equally as easy to forget to drink water in the rush of the day. Water helps regulate body temperature, lubricates and cushions joints, and protects sensitive tissues. Water makes up roughly sixty percent of human body weight, so it is essential to make sure that we’re drinking enough of it.
4. Take Vitamins and Supplements
Many people struggle to intake all of the necessary vitamins and minerals through their regular diet. This is where vitamins and supplements can help. For example, if you don’t spend much time outside, you should take a Vitamin D supplement to strengthen your bones.

5. Read At Least Fifteen Minutes Per Day
It is imperative that we take care of our minds, just like we do with our bodies. Reading helps stimulate our brains, expands our knowledge, and improves our focus. It is a great habit to develop and is very achievable by reading fifteen minutes per day. Personally, I find it a great way to relax.
