Rather than giving yourself a list of resolutions for the new year, why not challenge yourself to 5 healthy habits for 2022 instead? The new year can completely inspire and motivate you to overhaul everything, but hands up if you’ve reached the end of January and they’ve fallen by the wayside?
By looking at 2022 as a whole, incorporating 5 healthy habits throughout the year is pretty doable. There’s no need to do everything in January and get overwhelmed. Make one change at a time and make them small if you need to. The sense of achievement when you’ve incorporated one habit will encourage you month after month to keep adding more healthy habits into your routine and before you know it, you’ll have added all 5 habits!
5 healthy habits you can start in 2022
- Get consistent, good quality sleep.
By practicing good sleep hygiene, implementing new habits during the day and following a wind down routine, you can get into a routine of regular, uninterrupted sleep. Adding Hush & Hush MindYourMind into your wind down routine can help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep and won’t leave you feeling groggy in the morning. Read more about sleep hygiene here.
- Practice self care.
As life become busier again, it can be difficult to carve out time for ourselves. But this is a healthy habit that doesn’t have to take up a huge amount of time and can make a big difference. Meditation can help you to relax and unwind, as can going for a walk in nature or unplugging from social media.
- Move more.
Whether it’s sneaking in a quick walk before work or during lunch time, or maybe it’s doing a HIT class at home or in the gym, moving more and sitting less is an attainable healthy habit to start. If you think you’re too busy to move more, do squats or running on the spot while the kettle is boiling or when the ads are on TV. There’s always a way to be more active!
- Drink alcohol moderately.
For a lot of people, reducing alcohol intake in January is pretty easy, especially after the Christmas festivities. Drinking less alcohol helps to lower your risk of cancer, heart disease and depression. To hydrate from the inside, try Hush & Hush SkinCapsule CLEAR+ which increase skin hydration in just 4 weeks
- Eat breakfast every single morning.
We’ve all heard the phrase that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, yet how many of us have skipped it for one reason or another? As our lifestyles become busier, it’s easy to run out the door, promising to pick up something healthy on the way to work, only to find a lack of healthy options in the shop. Try making our HushCakes with Hush & Hush PlantYourDay – a plant-based vegan protein powder. This is formulated with organic pumpkin and pea protein with prebiotics and probiotics and doubles as a meal replacement when fruit, milk or other ingredients are added.
There are so many small healthy habits that you can incorporate into daily life that can make 2022 your best year yet!
