Healthy New Year’s Resolutions
#1: Get 30 minutes of exercise every day
According to the several health authorities, adults should aim for at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic exercise each week. This can be broken down into 30 minutes of exercise for five days in one week. Aerobic activity should engage several large muscle groups and can be done continuously for at least 10 minutes at a time with a break between each set.
Getting exercise each day is important even if you are not looking to lose weight. Aerobic exercise improves cardiovascular and respiratory health. In addition, physical activity can boost your immune system response and metabolism. All of these are great reasons to get up and get moving in the new year.
#2: Update your wardrobe
Online shopping has hit an all time high in the past year and there are no signs of slowing down anytime soon. With all the sales and discounts available both online and in the stores, it is always tempting to go on a shopping spree. Instead of your next OOTD, pick your outfits for the year.
To provide motivation and set a tangible goal, try buying clothes in a few sizes smaller than your current size. With diet and exercise, you will be able to fit into your new outfits perfectly. In addition to having something to wear right off the bat, achieving your goals will boost your confidence.
