It's that time of year again! Time to start thinking about what you'd like to accomplish in the new year. Take health and wellness into your hands and come up with some resolutions of your own! Start with identifying simple goals that have been weighing heavy on your mind and are easy to stick with. Share your resolutions with your family and friends so that you can work as a team to stay on track toward achieving your goals.
There are endless benefits to meditation. It can alleviate negative thoughts and emotions, help regulate blood pressure, improve breathing, and help to manage stress. Meditating first thing in the morning is a great way to start the day. Find a quiet comfortable place where you are unlikely to be disturbed. Close your eyes, relax your mind and put your racing thoughts on pause. You can play mellow music, nature sounds, or sit and embrace the silence while you focus on your breathing. There are many apps such as Breethe, that can help you get started. Meditation is a great way to improve your quality of life, and it only takes up a few minutes of your day. So promise yourself to start this year off with a stress free and calm mind and body.

Exercising is both beneficial for your physical and mental well being. Just 30 minutes of exercise, 3-5 times a week can help boost your mood and energize your body. Prioritize your health this year and set a monthly or weekly work out goal. Contrary to popular belief, you don't have to join a gym or have equipment in order to work out. Find a spacious area in your home, turn on a youtube video and voila! Consistency is key, and will lead you to success.

Sometimes our lives get busy and we're unable to spend time with those that matter most in our lives. Make this the year you prioritize your family and dearest friends.
Try to set a goal of meaningfully connecting with important people in your life at least once a day. We're fortunate to live in a time where technology connects us with the tap of an app! Even if the conversation is through video chat or a phone call, meaningful human connection is so important! What better time to start spreading the love than during the holiday season.
