I want to make 2010 my healthiest year yet so I’ve come up with a non-stressful way to incorporate 12 new healthy habits into my life. Each month I will focus on one Activity or Habit/Food/Goal to help make me healthier and happier.
Since I believe Health and Happiness go hand in hand, some of the habits will be for physical health and some will be for mental health. I will be posting information and monthly goals at the start of each month. Feel free to join me by writing your own monthly goals or following along with mine. I don’t expect everyone to have the same priorities as me, so do what is right for you
At the start of each month I will list some goal ideas for that topic. Here are the topics by month:
January -Meatless Month – Example Goal: Vegetarian Diet or Meatless Mondays (it’s up to you) Maybe a second read of the China Study is in order?
February -Yoga Month – Example Goal: Yoga 2 times a week
March -Oatmeal Month -
April - Get Enough Sleep -
May -Leafy Greens -
June – Phone a Friend
July – Anti-oxidant Month
August – Cut the Vice
September – Wine Month
October – Eat Seasonally
November – Try Something New (activity or healthy food)
December – Enjoy the Fruits of your Labor
The Ultimate Goal is the end the year healthier than how you started! These are all things I want to work on in the new year and taking them one at a time will help make it more manageable. I still have my New Year’s Resolutions too! But, I consider those more dramatic, and this list is just small steps toward a healthier me!
