In case you need a head start on next year’s resolutions, consider the:
Top Ten Resolutions for 2015
10. Cut back on alcohol
While much has written about the health benefits of a small amount of alcohol, too much tippling is still the bigger problem. Drinking alcohol in excess affects the brain’s neurotransmitters and can increase risk of depression, memory loss, etc.
9. Stay in touch
Miss an old friend you haven’t seen in a while? It’s good for your health to reconnect with them. Research suggests people with strong social ties live longer than those who don’t.
8. Quit Smoking
Fear that you’ve failed too many times to try again? Talk to any ex-smoker, and you’ll see that multiple attempts are often the path to success. Try different methods to find what works. And think of the cash you’ll save!
7. Save Money
Save money by making healthy lifestyle changes. Walk or ride your bike to work, or explore carpooling. Cut back on gym memberships by exercising at home.
6. Cut your stress
A little pressure now and again won’t kill us; in fact, short bouts of stress give us an energy boost. But if stress is chronic, it can increase your risk of obesity, depression, and more.
We tend to think our own bliss relies on bettering ourselves, but our happiness also increases when we help others.
And guess what? Happiness is good for your health.
4. Go back to school
No matter how old you are, back to the classroom can help revamp your career, introduce you to new friends, and even boost your brain power.
3. Lose weight
One of the most popular new year’s resolutions that many have a hard time committing to. But you can succeed if you don’t expect overnight success. Keep a food journal to keep track of what you eat, plan for bumps in the road, and have a support system.
2. Get more sleep
You probably already know that a good night’s rest can do wonders for your mood – and appearance. But sleep is more beneficial to your health than you might realize. Lack of sleep has been linked to a greater risk of obesity and type 2 diabetes.t more sleep
The joys and rewards of vacations can last long after the suitcase is put away. Travelling allows us to tap into life as an adventure, and we can make changes in our lives without having to do anything too bold or dramatic. It gets you out of your typical scenery, and the effects are revitalizing. Travelling is great for the body and soul.
