Happy New Year! New Years resolutions can easily be broken if you put too much on your plate all at once. With the start of a brand new year, we might want to reinvent ourselves and do everything we can to be more motivated, more productive, and better than the year before. But this, however, can put a lot of pressure on ourselves. If we don't reach all these goals we set out for ourselves, we may grow frustrated and disappointment in ourselves. In order to ensure we don't fall into this trap, it's important to incorporate lifestyle changes that you can easily achieve without pressure to make 2022 a better year than the one before.

One of the easiest things you can start your year off with is making a commitment to walk every day. Even if you can only walk 5 minutes a day, it will still provide you with energy, decrease anxiety, and lift up your mood. So get outside and start moving, and if you live in a colder climate, you can always hit the treadmill. While speaking about exercise, it's important to eat healthy. There are so many healthy options out there, a lot more than we've ever had before. You don't need to diet, but focus on nourishing your body with healthy nutrients that will give you energy and make you feel good.
Another great thing you can do it tidy up. If you notice something in your closet you haven't worn in a year, it's time to toss it out. Donate whatever doesn't suit your tastes or fits you anymore. With more room in your closet, you can get some new pieces for your wardrobe, one's that you'll be excited to put on. Perhaps starting with your closet will encourage you to clean out other things as well, like your pantry. No more old food that will never be used. If you see something with an expired date, it is time to throw it out. We are all about freshness and stocking up on items that you know you'll use.
