Next Year Is Almost Here, Can I Really Do This?
I'm never a fan of making resolutions because somehow along the line, I always fall off my goals especially when I take it to be too challenging or I just simply can't get rid of how I have been living before I set the goals. It's almost never easy for me but I think the main issue is that I tend to give up too easily when it comes to bringing my resolutions to reality.
So when I saw the special challenge from this community, I almost brushed it off that I won't be able to do it as I think the challenge will just be another one that I'll stop half way into the new year.
But then, I thought... My health is important and what's the harm in trying? So here I am, deciding to go for it even if I'm not totally sure if I can do this 🥲 don't blame me, I've done a lot of resolutions before I honestly never plan to fall from them but it just happened 😩
So maybe I'll make do with lots of support from those having same goals with me on this one... Will be checking them out once I publish this post, hopefully we would vibe each other till the end of it all.

What would you like to improve in your lifestyle that could benefit your health?
There are few of them but I'm going to take it one step at a time since I know what it had cost me for rushing my health goals before... It's hard to get comfortable in health goals that you've not been doing for a while. Anyways, I know what my lifestyle needs for improvement and I'll be sharing the most important ones I want to pursue come next year.
Exercise to keep fit... I don't have fat to get rid of or a protruding stomach to fight but I have good looking body to keep in check and well fitted. Well, I haven't been doing anything for my body aside eating even sometimes, that one is hard to do for my body.
Hopefully with this resolution, I'll make my mum happy that I've started caring for my body this way. I do have stomach pains a lot here and there, mum suggests I do exercise regularly to grow a stronger immune so I could fight the pains away, maybe this would work next year.
Eat early, rest early... This two go together for me because I tend to do this a lot, eating whenever I feel like and always sleeping late. In most cases, I sleep for only four to give hours which I know definitely is bad for my health and most especially my eyes.
With this resolution, I plan to get as much rest as I can and eat early enough so I don't eat breakfast and lunch together with one meal or lunch and dinner together (you know what I mean right?).
What unhealthy habits do you wish to change?
I think I have two bad habits I wanted to get rid of next year. Honestly, these ones will be very hard for me but I'm adding it here because I also know very well how my health will improve if I can keep to them.
Reduce my sugar intake... I literally eat sugar in my tea and other meals that I can add in sugar. It's a habit I've been fighting for long but just a after successful week or avoiding sugar, I take it in excess the next week... It's as bad as that.
Well, there was a month I went through without taking sugar in anyway and I think that is a big boost for me to do this for a year. At least, I want to make sure not to abuse sugar next year.
Eat more fruits and drink more water... My bad habit here is that I know very well how important these are to my health but I always fail to take them serious. Buying fruit has become a work for me, not the money to buy it is the challenge (you can imagine) water is very much available at a tiny distance from me, I still don't get why I don't drink as much water as I should.
Hopefully, next year will be different for me and I want to make these two a strong habit for me. My younger brother is almost addicted to drinking water everyday, at least I want to be like him haha.
Set 3 objectives for 2023 to improve your health or change unhealthy habits
I don't want to set so many goals for myself and end up not achieving any so I'll give a short list of what I want to achieve by the end of next year. So my objectives for year 2023 to improve my health and change unhealthy habits are...
- Exercise three times weekly in the mornings until I'm comfortable enough to do it daily.
- Eat and rest early, not missing breakfast and sleeping as early as 10-11pm.
- Take fruits at least three to four times weekly and drink enough water daily.
Oh boy! This won't be easy but I want to give it a try and go as far as I can with it, your support will be of great help and I hope I give a testimony by the end of year, a testimony to show my great body which would be looking so healthy 🥰
This is my challenge resolutions inspired by Med Hive Community Special challenge and you're invited to set some health goals for yourself.
To be sincere almost everyone is guilty of falling off the resolution we made at the beginning of the year. Sometimes it wasn't our fault but real-life issues happened and we fell off.
All bloggers are also guilty of sleeping late, because of the nature of our work, but I think we need to take our health seriously.
I hope you stop the sugar intake and concentrate more on exercise, do try to be eating to add more flesh as well 😃😃
Wish you all the best in your new year resolution,hehe
Okay, that's relieving to know but I hope to fight whatever will be a blockage to achieving these goals... Not an easy one but I'll still fight 😅
Thanks for your wishes, hopefully I won't fall your hand in adding flesh 🤣
Lol,you better don't fall my hands. Then I think sleeping by 9-10 that you wrote over there,can't be possible 😘😃
I know right but it's a slow process thing, the important thing is that I sleep earlier than I normally do 🥲
You can start from 11pm but not 9 abeg
Lol yes Sir, I'll edit my goal post right away 😅

Nice one Sist, but you don't have to say I'm addicted, common, I'm not even drinking water that much these days too.
You are trying abeg
Compared to me that don't even think of water, you're addicted 🤣
☹️... Stop, please
I have stop but I said the truth sha
Don't worry, just take them once at a time, and bit by bit before you know it you will start seeing improvement.
Keeping on track with our resolution is never easy but is doable. I'm hoping to read your testimony someday most especially the sugar part.
Hehe thanks for the encouragement dear, you're always around when I do these things... I wonder how haha
Thanks and I look forward to giving updates on how far
Hahaha it is the spirit leads !lol

Hola Medhiver @merit.ahama, encantado de estar aquí. Comienzo estas letras agradeciéndote tu compromiso con nuestra comunidad, gracias por estar siempre activo y participando en nuestras iniciativas. Para esta ocasión has rondado sobre varias consideraciones todas importantes, para finalmente decantar y seleccionar el trío propositivo. A veces visualizamos el estilo de vida saludable, como una serie de aspectos a desarrollar quizás aislados, a cumplir para contribuir a nuestro bienestar. Pero en realidad funcionan en armonía y combinación. La actividad física, los horarios y la alimentación son congruentes entre sí, todos encaminados a promover y preservar la salud. Estamos a pocos días del nuevo año, así que Medhiver debemos ir calentando motores.
Feliz y próspero año 2023, para ti y los tuyos. Estos son nuestros sinceros deseos, bendiciones👏😃🎆✨🙏
