Leading up to 2016, we’re all busy thinking of new goals to make for this coming year. You’ve achieved your dream job, bought a new house, traveled to exotic destinations. So, this year let’s focus on a healthier lifestyle. Here are some goal ideas for your New Year’s Resolution.
Health Goals to try
1.Cook at home more often—you will learn new cooking skills and save money.
2. Participate in “Meatless Monday” by forgoing meat once a week. It’s budget-friendly and helps improve your health and the environment.
3.You know it’s the most important meal of the day, so why skip it? Give yourself an extra 15 minutes in the morning to prepare and eat a simple Breakfast. MILO® and toast will do the trick.
4.Make Healthy swaps when you can. Use Olive oil instead of butter.
5.Try portion control when eating meals. Put leftovers in the refrigerator immediately to prevent eating a second helping.
6.Grow a simple garden: start with herbs that are easy to grow and maintain.
7.Buy fresh vegetables instead of canned, which often don’t have as many vitamins and minerals.
8.Eat five new foods this year. Have you tried kale, quinoa, coconut oil or almond butter yet?
9.Get active! Join Yoga, Pilates, kick boxing, or rock climbing. Find an activity that interests you. It’s a start to a healthier path.
10.Eat more fruit and vegetables, prepare freshly cut fruits to snack on throughout the day.
You should never skip breakfast
It is not uncommon that adults think it is perfectly acceptable to skip breakfast once in a while. You may think that eating a full breakfast will make you sluggish during the day. Remember how that huge packet of Nasi Lemak made you too sleepy to concentrate during your meeting? What you need to know is that it is not breakfast itself that is causing the morning slump; instead it is the food you eat for breakfast.
Eating a rather heavy breakfast that is loaded with refined carbohydrates or sugar will send sleepy signals to the brain. A wholesome breakfast with MILO® will give you the energy he or she needs to perform better throughout the day, both physically and mentally.
