There are scientific studies that show the many benefits of meditating. It helps to lift your mood, reduces stress, and even increases your brain’s gray matter (which is involved in muscle control, sensory perception, decision making, and self-control). Reap all of these benefits by getting up earlier to meditate in the morning.
How many of us are guilty of putting ‘lose weight’ and ‘eat healthily’ on our resolution lists? These two goals go hand and hand, and losing weight always starts with what you put on your plate. There are so many health benefits from adopting a plant-based diet. Aim to cut out the junk food, fill up on veggies and fruit, and buy organic produce.
Stress is a large culprit of early deaths and health problems. It may be unavoidable in our hectic, modern lifestyles, but it can be effectively managed with the help of useful, unconventional, and easy to practice tricks for stress management.
Make this year a charitable one. Part of being happy is being grateful for what we have, and seeing others benefit from our generosity. Whether you volunteer at an animal shelter, senior center, or donate to a cause close to your heart, start the year off right by helping others in need.
