It’s the time of year most people find themselves contemplating changes, improvements or the fresh start they will make on January 1st. Rather than making resolutions, commit to uphold a certain quality of life throughout 2018. We hope these 5 MOXIE Power Points help keep you balanced, happy & fulfilled in the year to come. Happy New Year!
PUT YOU FIRST
When you take care of you everything falls into place. Stop putting yourself on the back burner in 2018. Use the MOXIE Power Points to create a self-care plan and prioritize. Outline your five top priorities based on what matters to you most. Make decisions about how to spend your time that align with your priorities.
FEED YOUR BRAIN
Gut health and mental health are linked. Cut back on processed foods, exercise to boost your mood, meditate to reduce anxiety and get 7-9 hours of quality sleep each night.
DETERMINE YOUR NUMBERS
Make wellness a priority and take steps to improving your numbers. Make an appointment for a physical exam to check cholesterol, weight and blood pressure.
REALIZE YOUR BEST YOU
There is the one and only…you! Stop comparing yourself to others and recognize your abilities and strengths in 2018. Start a list with five things you like about yourself and add to your list throughout the year.
VOLUNTEER FOR YOURSELF & OTHERS
When we feel more connected to others, we become less absorbed in the normal stresses of daily life. Make new friends, improve your mental and physical health, and maybe develop new skills by volunteering in your community. Research continues to find the benefits of volunteering include improved health.
