New Year Health Resolutions
This prompt made me realize that the entire time I was thinking of my new year resolutions, I didn’t factor in anything health-related. My new year resolutions really were just general life based.
I don’t really place much focus on my health because I’m mostly too busy to find time to care for myself in that regard. Next year though, I’ll be placing more focus on my health and well being.
Lifestyle Improvements & Unhealthy Habits I plan to make changes to.
Breakfast Is A Must
I mostly don’t eat breakfast because I’m not an early waker. And why this is is because I don’t sleep early either. So I mostly just skip breakfast and do brunch later somewhere around mid day. I know well enough this isn’t healthy, but haven’t been able to bring myself to stop it. I’m going to make it a point next year to fix that.
I can’t stress enough how much attention I need to pay to my mental health. I find that I’ve been so busy with physical health that I don’t realize how much I’ve neglected my mental health the past year! That seems to have worked out fine though cos I didn’t have my on and off seasonal depression in a while lol.
Less Quantity, More Quality.
I reckon that this year when it comes to food, I’ve worried more about the quantity of the foods I eat than the quality. And even though the quantity should not be completely disregarded, quality needs to be given a lot of attention.
I plan to reconstruct the meals I eat daily to produce a kind of balanced out effect of the food groups. So essentially, I plan to spread out the food groups through out breakfast, Lunch and Supper to achieve a balanced diet daily.
Objectives to improve my health.
This prompt didn’t really say physical health so it’s only natural(and necessary) I accord my mental health some attention too.
I’ve already talked about unhealthy things I’m doing and my plans to put an end to them. Next thing would be activities I’ll engage in to improve my health.
Go For Weekend Jogs
This is something I’m already doing with my friends, but just not really consistent with. Every weekend, my friends and I head out early morning for a short run.
It’s something we planned for both the health benefit and the social as well. It’s not just about the stay fit in the run, but also about the fact that we get to hangout together once every weekend. This fosters friendship and is really fun for us.
I miss the weekend run sometimes due to laziness but I plan to be very consistent with it this year.
Fix My Sleep Habits
Another thing everyone that knows me knows about is the fact that I’m not an early sleeper. Only times I sleep early are when I’m really tired from a day’s work or not feeling too great. But even under some of these circumstances, I still stay up late because I’ve done it for so long it’s subconsciously become a part of me.
I have goals of fixing my sleep schedule next year and sleeping at 11pm latest now. I’ll find a way to fix in everything I have to do for the day into the day so that I’ll be use the part of the night from 7-11pm for movies and everything else I want to do.
Diabetes Check: Cut My Sugar
Everyone that knows me knows I’m a sugar freak. I couldn’t stop eating sugar to save my life. I take several teaspoonfuls of sugar in my tea everyday and I completely admit that it’s not healthy and will be working on cutting my sugar in 2023.
There are actually many more things I know I need to work on with regards to my health but at the time of writing this post, these were what I had on my mind.
Those are great health resolutions and I hope you will really have the courage to do it. God bless to your journey.
Have a prosperous new year..
Thanks for passing by. I’ll try my best ti really stick go my resolve.🙂
Hola @depressedfuckup bienvenido. Nos alegramos de tu llegada y de tu presencia en nuestra comunidad, con tus aportaciones a la iniciativa.
Con tu participación nos trasladas a un conglomerado de elementos que su presencia, ausencia, defecto o exceso, influyen y determinan nuestra salud.
Expresas una gran verdad cuando precisas la salud mental: cuerpo, mente y espíritu deben trascender en perfecta armonía, en equilibrio.
La calidad debe prevalecer siempre sobre la cantidad, aunque no es fácil lograr esta negociación. Por la saciedad. Y qué decir del azúcar, una gran debilidad, pero debemos superarla.
Esperamos que consigas tus propósitos para el próximo año. No dude en presentar sus progresos y compartirlos con la comunidad.
Te deseamos un feliz y exitoso año, bendiciones 👏😃🎆✨🙏.
Sure thing. I’m already starting to watch my sugar. I consider beating my desire for sugar one of my top priorities. Keeping my mental health stable too.
Trust me bro. Just cutting sugar from diet is good enough. Not only it helps with the diebatic situation but also improves overall health.
I can see the difference after kicking out all the sugary drinks like coke, spirit and other nonsense from my menu.
Try no sugar for a week and you will see the improvement.
@inuke, you're right about the drinks. I completely stayed away from the drinks you listed here for a week, I replaced with fruits and the difference was very clear.
Exactly, But it's difficult too. At times I just want to gulp down a bottle or two. 😅
You're very correct. It's the hardest.
I always complain about you having breakfast but you’re too stubborn. I hope you change for the better.
Once again , more fruits and vegetables. 😇
Yeah I’ll need to start waking up early to fix that.
As for fruits and vegetables, I don’t really know. We’ll see.
I hope you do.
You need to give it a shot.
You want trouble.😂
I was just passing then my thumbs tripped 😂
You’ll trip too.😂
I will not.
We will see about that.

Story of my life for real. I really should start taking myself seriously o. I cannot remember the last time I slept well. I hope you stick to your health resolutions as well.
Lol I hope the late sleeping isn’t affecting your diet though. We can always manage sleeping late if it’s the problem. But the thing is that it affects so many other things in turn.
It does honestly, I end up having terrible headaches all through the day.
That road I'm seeing in your last picture doesn't look in anyway a short run for me o 🤣 you are doing well sha.
Quality over quantity, that's right and I plan to stick to that next year as well.
So you're on this health goals with us, nice... I hope we all stick to it 🥲
The breakfast thing.
I can’t count the number of times I’ve promised to do better with that and still haven’t been able to
You can start tomorrow. Not encouraging that you procrastinate, but tomorrow literally is the start of a new year. What better day to initiate change and keep track of your progress than on the first day of the year?
Right. Lemme give it a try tomorrow and see what happens
I m glad you came up with these changes to be made. You are well on your way.
Breakfast, no matter how light contributes alot to healthy living.
