There are only a few days left in January to finalize your commitments for the rest of 2016. Have you decided what you’re going to do? Perhaps a healthier diet, picking up a new hobby, developing a more positive outlook on life?
In the end we should focus on what makes us happy and rid ourselves of those things that make us unhappy. Easy enough right? Although basic in concept, stress reduction is crucial in maintaining overall health and well-being, which is one of the most popular New Year’s resolutions in 2016.
Here at Dr. Willard’s we promote the general health of all living things, and one of the ways we like to do that is to encourage the people around us to embrace a natural, holistic lifestyle. Instead of overcomplicating our life, it’s best to make like a fraction and simplify.
Without further ado, here are 6 ways to simplify your life for the better.
Kick The Habit
It doesn’t matter what the habit actually is. Smoker, gambler, drinker, chronic nail biter – although some worse than others, they all share an addiction of some sort. In extreme cases kicking the habit can actually save your life, but with something mild like nail-biting it’s less about health effects and more about that feeling of control you get when you overcome an obstacle. Small victories are surprisingly impactful and completely necessary to get by day to day.
Consolidate Your Problems
Something bothering you? Instead of stressing yourself out and worrying about every little detail, trace it back to the root of the problem. For example, maybe your performance at work is slacking, your relationship with a family member is growing distant, and you feel increasingly worn down day after day. Maybe the root cause of all these problems is the fact that you’re not getting enough sleep at night? It’ll be difficult to spot this pattern right away, but looking for consistencies in each problem will eventually lead you onto the correct path.
Foster Important Relationships & Discard Others
Keep those who are important to you close, and rid yourself of those who negatively impact your state of mind. No one is telling you to “burn bridges” necessarily, but it’s not worth it maintaining a relationship if you’re putting in so much effort and receiving little to nothing in return. It’s a drain both physically and mentally, and you already have enough on your plate.
In With The Tea, Out With The Caffeine
It’s 2016. We really owe it to ourselves by now to remove unhealthy beverages from our diets altogether. Green tea has been shown to stimulate powerful anti-oxidant activity, prevent diseases, promote brain function, and have an abundance of vitamins and minerals. Are you convinced yet?
Go Natural When Possible
You can never be too sure where your food has been, who has handled it, or what kind of chemicals it’s been exposed to, and it’s nearly impossible to know unless you grew it in your own garden and picked it yourself. That’s why we can’t stress enough that you buy from trusted sources. Organic is timeless, and natural ingredients are here to stay.
Drink Dr. Willard’s Water
If you really took to heart our previous suggestions, you should round out your last lifestyle change with 2-4 glasses of Dr. Willard’s Water every single day. Not only is Dr. Willard’s going to help you absorb those essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients from a natural diet, it boosts antioxidant activity in the bloodstream. And once your body has used up these nutrients completely, Dr. Willard’s then helps to expel the wastes generated by natural processes.
