As the New Year approaches, we want to share some healthy resolutions that you can follow into 2020 and beyond. Without further ado, we invite you to add a few (if not all !) of these resolutions into your daily routine.
The average United States adult watches four and a half hours of television a day. Imagine all the skills you can learn or the extra time you can spend with family and friends instead of watching TV. A good way to monitor your TV viewing time is to set a limit for yourself and stick to it.
Making a sleep routine is the best way to stay healthy and get the most out of your day. Research has shown you should not use a device with a screen thirty minutes before going to sleep. The hardest part about making a sleep schedule is keeping that schedule. Whether you are a parent or a full-time college student, life does not stop. CBD oils and supplements will help you fall asleep and reduce anxiety.
Using social media is a wonderful way to stay connected with your friends and family, especially if you live across state borders. However, too much of a good thing can be bad. Recent studies reveal that teenagers and young adults who use social media experience an increase in depression. These dark times can hit anyone, regardless of their age. Research shows that adults spend two and a half hours on social media platforms a day. This year, evaluate your social media usage and seek out activities, hobbies and skills you can learn so you can really connect to yourself and those around you.
Set aside time this year to go through your belongings and determine what you still need or feel you can let go. If you need help, take a page out of the life of Marie Kondo. She is an international sensation through her tidying method called KonMari. This year, declutter your life. Doing so will help you feel more peace and bring greater joy. When you are done cleaning your space, use one of CBD’s diffusers to fill the air with a delightful smell.
Your body is about 60 percent water, making it imperative that you drink about eight cups of water a day. You are always losing water from your body whether you are at the gym or sitting at a desk. It is important that you sip on water throughout the day and not wait until you become thirsty. Too many people resort to coffee, tea, energy drinks and sodas to quench their thirst when what their body needs is water.
Picking healthier options at the store and forgoing the processed food is more expensive. The meals take more time to make, especially if there is a learning curve to go with it. Despite the increased commitment, making this change will only increase your overall health. Along with eating better food, consider trying CBD Natural Living’s supplements.
Stimulate your brain by learning something new this year. Get outside of your comfort zone and learn a new skill. Learn how to speak another language, paint, or do yoga. The possibilities are endless.
2020 may be your year to reach that fitness goal you’ve been chasing for so long. Whether you want to lose weight or tone your body, make it a goal to make that happen. Another way you can take care of your body is through CBD’s natural products, including drinks.
Getting lost inside the pages of a good book is a great brain-stimulating activity. You can read a book in the great outdoors hanging out in a hammock or under a fuzzy blanket on your couch. Read more books this year to expand your knowledge of good literature. Here is a list of the top reading challenge books for 2020 to get you started.
Unplug from your social media feed and all the notifications you get on your phone or laptop to take a stroll in nature. Dedicate a time where you can watch the sunrise or go backpacking in the mountains. The adventure is up to you; go out and experience the world!
Dietitians suggest adults should eat about 13.3 teaspoons of sugar per day. Well, the average American consumes 42.5 teaspoons in one given day. Sugar is the most added ingredient in today’s food from cereal to donuts. Take a step back and cut some treats from your diet.
Everyone’s hope is that 2020 will be the best year yet and one way to ensure that is the case is to make time for yourself. Whether it is twenty minutes a day or an hour on the weekends, schedule time for yourself and stick to it like it is an appointment. You can’t miss it. Your physical and emotional health will appreciate it. One activity you can do during this time is take a Himalayan salt bath and drop a few CBD essential oils into the water for good measure.
