With January officially underway, it can be disheartening for many to think they never achieved their goals from the previous year. Often, you can start the year with a whizz and a bang, only to fall into your old ways within weeks or even days. Make a promise to yourself before the glow of the festive season sets in, to stick with your goals for a happier and healthier you. Your entire being will thank you for it.
Better Smile, Better You
Did you know that three in ten millennials only brush their teeth once per day? The less you clean, the more likely you are to suffer from oral health problems. If you have made such a mistake in the past and you’re paying for it with teeth you’re not happy with, then consider composite dental veneers. Veneers offer you a picture-perfect smile that’s white, clean, and provides all the confidence in the world. Never be afraid to smile in photos again.
Fit and Healthy
Around 45 percent of Americans vowed to lose weight or get in shape in 2018, which makes it the second-most popular new year resolution. However, while many people might make a life-changing decision, a significant number won’t stick with it. You can buck the trend. Before you reach the end of the year, join a gym or fitness group and begin getting in shape. You can then start the new year already with a routine in place – dramatically improving your chances of succeeding.
Join a Club or Sport
If you want to feel and look healthy, then join a club or sport. Science shows us that being social – such as being involved in a team sport – can benefit our bodies and minds in many ways. Firstly, there is a proven link between cancer, immune function, heart disease, and other health problems when you have fewer social ties. Some research also shows you can die younger if you have a weaker social circle.
Clean Bill of Health
Many people only go to a GP when they are not feeling well, but a doctor is also about prevention as much as they are about a cure. Take the start of the new year as an opportunity to get a clean bill of health. Update your family medical history, get a physical, ask for tests, and make sure that your body is ticking away as it should be. You can also receive helpful advice on how to look after your body and make better decisions for it.
Make Better Food Choices
Some people go a little crazy over the festive season, indulging in endless boxes of chocolates and stuffing themselves silly on turkey and pumpkin pie. While it’s okay to indulge from time to time, it’s imperative to consider your health as well. Vow to treat your body better in 2019. Start the day on the right foot with breakfast, cut out refined sugar and bad fats, and include lots of fruit and vegetables in your diet as well. The better you eat, the better you will look and feel.
With the curtains closed on 2018 and the new year already kicked off with a bang, it’s an excellent idea to think about how you will treat your body throughout this year. Will you take better care of your oral and overall health? Will you become fitter and healthier? Or will you vow to become more social? Commit and start the new year on the right foot.]]>
