The New Year has just begun and I have been reflecting on the impact previous years have to my life today. Do you still make New Year’s resolutions? For me, I prefer to make New Goals instead.
I have one particular goal that I seem to renew every new year, I want to live an Active Senior Life. Even though I am not there yet, one day I will be and what I do today will impact that goal when the time comes.
So every year I look to see what I can do to improve my health and adjust my goals accordingly. The options are endless; do I need to add weights to my workouts, adjust my diet, walk, run, do yoga or just rest more?
As women, our bodies will continue to go and go. Not to mention, if you are caring for children or aging parents you might be on overdrive.
For me, this New Year’s adjustments will include:
- Enjoy quality time with family & friends – Calms my heart
- Get more rest – Sleep repairs our mind and body
- Drinking more water – Water resets our hormones
- Meditate – or just do nothing every now and then
- Walk more – I am joining 99 Walks
