hello healthier new year! clean up your act in the new year with these healthy alternatives to your every day!
it’s that time again; let’s get in the spirit of fresh starts + self-care! ok, 2020, we’re coming for you…
have you thought about what changes you’re choosing for this bright + shiny new year? the most health-happy changes are often suuuuper simple... as easy as swapping one thing for another, still satisfying + fresh (aka healthier) new thing! read on, cuz we’ve got some simple exchange ideas to welcome in a happier new year + a healthier new you:
1. sub your afternoon latte for tea
obviously, we wouldn’t ask you to give up coffee altogether -- how hypocritical would that be?! but let’s discuss a potential break-up with that post-lunch caffeine kick. how about green tea? hot or iced, it’s full of superhero antioxidants, plus studies show that cutting off caffeine by 2 p.m. is a healthy path toward dreamy all-night zzzzzzzzzzzzz’s!
2. say more “no’s” to processed foods
let’s go there: “junk” foods. they’re convenient, crave-able + uhhh, we’ll say it… delicious! we know that attempting to forever rid ourselves of guilty-pleasure treats usually backfires colosally. but we also know these foods don’t feed or fuel our body in the best ways. so, as a new more-often-than-not habit, trade the energy drainers for satisfying whole foods: avocados, nuts, brown rice, greek yogurt, sweet potatoes, fruits + yes, dark chocolate. yep, feeling better already.
3. negativity: a no-go. stay positive!
no guru or zen master required. when it comes to healthier living, it’s as simple as setting clear intentions. science supports it: when you anticipate the positive, it’s more likely to happen. and, like Henry Ford said, “if you think you can do a thing or think you can’t do a thing, you’re right.” positive spins all around, please.
4. breathe in something healthier-for-you, too!
imagine if during that time you’re eatin’ all clean + adoptin’ healthier habits, you’re still breathing air fresheners full of crazy chemicals! that. will. not. do. at enviroscent, we create nature-inspired scents without the nasty ingredients + fillers (check out our never list). oh + btw, they smell ahhhh-mazing. so make 2020 smell great with scents that are better for you, your pets + the planet! check them out now.
