Another year is behind us, and it seems that most of us are excited to bid farewell to last year in particular. Regardless of what happens in the New Year, you can set the tone in a positive light by incorporating three healthy habits that will serve you well for years to come.
If you have trouble sticking to those resolutions, why not work on these healthy habits that are easy to follow no matter what's happening in the world around you!
1. Jump on the meal-planning trolley
Perhaps one of your resolutions each year is to eat healthier foods. You might have started with the best of intentions, but when life got hectic and your schedule turned busy, you went back to your old ways, instead of getting caught in the chaos, starting meal planning.
During downtime, take a moment to look at healthy meals you can prepare ahead. Build a shopping list that makes it easy to craft numerous healthy meals from the same base of ingredients. And then let your slow cooker, Instant Pot, and other kitchen tools help you get the job done.
Freezing leftovers properly will ensure you always have healthy and delicious meals at the ready. So, when you get home from work and realize you forgot to plan dinner, you will only have to snatch it from the freezer and heat it up. Bonus: you can put your feet up while you wait!
2. Make more time for sleep
