Tips to Ring in 2016 with Health, Happiness and Fun

December 31, 2015

Sticking with your resolutions can be tough, but with these wellness tips, you can make 2016 the year you make long-term changes for a healthy, happy and fun-loving lifestyle.

Eating Well, Feeling Great
One of the most common New Year’s resolutions is eat healthier and smarter. However, it is also one of the resolutions that falls by the wayside the soonest. Eating right and being healthy can be fun, easy and delicious. Choose vitamin-rich healthy snacks that taste good, and you are more likely to succeed.

Mayesa is a premium cacao super drink that is a wonderful snack for any time of day. It can be mixed with your morning smoothie and is a delicious choice for a mid-day pick-me-up. Try replacing your 3 p.m. coffee and sweet with a Mayesa that can help you reach your healthy eating goals, boost your energy AND satisfy your sweet tooth. Not to mention, Mayesa is also rich in vitamin D, which can help pull you out of your winter blues.

Put the Fun Back in Working Out
Everyone knows that exercising is a vital part of a healthy lifestyle. However, it doesn’t have to be a chore. Think outside the box when it comes to exercise and you are more likely to stick with your workout plan.

For example, if you aren’t a fan of the gym, but love to play tennis, sign up for a local adult league. Do you miss the dance classes you took when you were a kid? Many dance studios and gyms offer adult dance classes that not only burn a ton of calories, but also increase flexibility and muscle tone.

Want to run a half marathon but can’t seem to make it past the 10K mark? Make a friendly wager with a friend to see who can reach the new distance goal first. A little competition never hurt anyone, right? (By the way, a case of Mayesa is a fantastic prize for the winner!)

Remember to Take Care of You
Healthy eating habits and getting plenty of exercise are very important, but so is taking care of your mind and spirit. If you love to read, take the time to finish that book that’s been sitting on your nightstand for months. Enjoy photography, cooking or want to learn a new language? Make 2016 the year you finally sign up for classes.

Also, never underestimate the value of sleep. Studies have shown that getting enough shut-eye is a key component to healthy living. In addition, it is hard to make healthy choices when you are tired, cranky and aren’t thinking clearly.

Of course, there will always be times when you don’t get enough sleep—taking care of sick kids or finishing up a work deadline— and will need some extra energy. For those days, Mayesa is a great alternative to drinking countless cups of coffee. As a premium cacao super drink, Mayesa provides a natural energy boost that also tastes delicious.

Family and Friends — Time to Reconnect 
It is easy to get caught up in the busy whirlwind that is everyday life and feel disconnected from family and friends. Change all that in the new year, and call a friend and have that long overdue chat. Take the kids on a hike or a bike ride and enjoy the slow pace instead of hurrying them along. Say yes to your friend’s invitation to try that new yoga class. Spend a Saturday morning relaxing with your family, and don’t feel guilty about ignoring the to-do list for a little while.

Regardless of what your New Year’s resolution is, taking some ‘me’ time and concentrating on your overall well-being always yields a positive outcome.

This year, what will you focus on to make 2016 your best year ever? Leave us a note in the comments!
