First quarter of the year is almost done, how's your new year's resolutions going?

New year, new beginnings.

This is one of the most common reasons why people from different age groups and walks of life anticipate in a new year--new opportunities. 

New opportunities to start over with. A new chapter, a blank slate.  

One of the most popular new year’s resolutions people try to stick all year round is health-related. Many wanted to lose weight and shed some pounds, while some promise to look after their well-being better, eating healthier and reducing stress as much as they can.

However, many fail because their idea of a healthier version of themselves revolve around going to the gym and cutting all junk food from their diet. 

What they don't realize is that being healthy happens with attainable simple steps done throughout the new year.

Willing to take the first step towards a healthier you?

Here are tips on how you can jump start your wellness journey this year!

Know your baseline

Before doing any changes or implementing any rules, know your starting point. 

This will help you develop a plan and set goals that you want to accomplish and will  actually attain.

Take advantage of free offers from fitness centers or gyms which happen at the start of the year.

Ask professional trainers what goals are suited for you and a fitness plan you can follow and observe.

Run—or at least walk more

One of the easiest forms of exercise is running because it doesn't require any equipment or a gym membership. 

You just need your shoes and an open space! 

Fitness specialists agree that training to run for 5k distance is ideal for beginners who don’t have previous experiences in running, or for those who are just getting up from being a couch potato.

If you can’t find the time to train to run, try walking more. 

Walking is an excellent exercise that is often taken for granted. Walk to your office if possible, or walk your dog after work. 

Every step counts!

Drink more water and ditch the soda

Jump starting your wellness journey this year doesn't require an overhaul of your diet and making dramatic shifts from junk to organic.

Experts advise that the most effective and realistic way of sticking to your fitness goal is by doing it little by little, but consistently.

Instead of a can of soda or an ice-cold juice, drink a glass of water or two.

Water also helps resolve skin issues, low energy levels, and aid in weight loss!

Make drinking lots of water a day a habit! It may be difficult in the beginning but the benefits are lasting.

Bring a tumbler of water wherever you go. Fill it up in the morning and try to finish it by lunch time. 

Fill it up again and drink the rest throughout the afternoon. Before you know it, drinking 8 glasses a day has become a routine instead of a chore you need to follow.

Prepare breakfast at night to get more sleep 

Want to hit two birds with one stone?

Prepare your breakfast at night so you can have extra minutes of sleep in the morning. 

Overnight oats are one of the most popular choices for those committed to changing their lifestyles for the better.

With the right mix of healthy ingredients, you can get the nutritional requirements for breakfast without the fuss of creating a bowl in the morning.

Oats are rich in a number of nutrients like fiber, carbohydrates, plant-based protein, and B vitamins. A balanced, well-prepared overnight oats jar is good for your heart, brain, and energy that will last until lunch time.

For an added boost of flavor, add someprotein bites with your chosen fruit for that needed crunch!

Give up junk and snack on plant-based nibbles

Movie night is not complete without popcorn! Nor a sleepover without pizza! 

Should you break your new year’s resolution and give in to junk food?

Say no to junk and say yes to plant-based snacks instead!

If you’re looking for something to munch on, trade these unhealthy nibbles with delicious plant-based snacks rich in vitamins and minerals!

Not only that, these bars and bits contain superfoods that contain several antioxidants and provide more fiber.

These healthier snack alternatives are made with only fresh and raw ingredients. 

Jump starting your wellness journey this year is not near to impossible!

All you have to do is make a decision to choose the healthier options. With these simple tips, you will be a healthier, better, and happier version of yourself this 2020.

Good luck!
