The new year is only a few months old, and for many, New Year’s resolutions have already bit the dust. Not surprisingly, most resolutions fail by mid-February. If you made a resolution to improve your health and lifestyle, here are some ways from Jeunesse Global to help yourself be more resolute in your resolutions.
Take Daily Walks
The reason most people give up on their quest to become healthier is because they start by trying to go from zero to 60. Then, after a couple weeks of grueling workouts, they hang it up. Alternatively, going for daily walks is a great idea. Walking a couple of miles around the neighborhood when the weather is nice, getting a chance to say hello to your neighbors – it will reinvigorate you without making you feel sore or tired. And just being outside in the sunshine can considerably improve your mood.
Eat Smaller Portions
America has a problem with obesity. For most people, it comes down to willpower. Being able to push yourself away from the dinner table and keep from overeating can help you achieve your health goals. The portion size of snacks and meals is making people fat and unhealthy. Drinking a little soda each day might not hurt you much. However, drinking a two-liter bottle of soda each day will definitely affect your health. Use a smaller plate for meals, and only fill it up once for each meal.
Try Better Supplements
You may already be taking supplements, but not all health supplements are created equal. Going with a brand you can trust is important.
Jeunesse Global is a direct selling company focused on helping people look and feel young. Operating in more than 100 countries, its sales are direct to consumer, so you are not paying extra for the middleman at the store. Established in 2009 by Randy Ray and Wendy Lewis, two business people who have launched several successful companies through the years, Jeunesse Global is a leader in quality, science-backed supplements.
The company focuses on products that help improve your energy while encouraging weight management and overall wellness. If you are on the fence about starting supplements, consider trying AM & PM Essentials. AM Essentials has more than 60 essential vitamins and key minerals to help you get up and go each morning, while PM Essentials contains more than 60 key nutrients and proprietary blends to give you a more restful sleep.*
Increase Your Protein Intake
If you are concerned about your weight, you aren’t alone. While many people qualify as merely overweight, not clinically diagnosed as obese, changing diet and health habits can go a long way. Foods with high protein will make you feel full more quickly. If you’re wondering why you can polish off a bag of chips and a pack of cookies and still feel hungry while eating one hamburger can make you feel stuffed, that’s because the burger contains more protein.
Start with trying to eat 1 gram of protein each day for every 2 pounds of body weight. A great jumping off point is ZEN Fuze protein shake – a blend of protein, fats and carbs formulated to fill meal gaps – for breakfast or at midday, according to the guidelines off the wildly popular Jeunesse ZEN Project 8.* Liquid meals are an ally for your digestive system, but you should balance liquid meals and whole food meals to maximize results. Combining an increase in protein intake with an exercise program can increase your lean muscle. Muscle burns calories all day long – even when you’re asleep.
Hop on a Bike
Too many of us get in our cars when we need to take a quick, 1-mile trip down the road. Not only does this contribute to a general sense of feeling lazy, it also means money spent on gas and wear and tear on the car. Just think about when you were a kid, and all the great times you had on your bike – you probably pedaled for hours without getting tired. What’s stopping you now? You likely won’t have that stamina the first time you try to ride a bike again, but it can quickly increase – as will the health benefits. Riding a bike is something you can do with other people, as well. Make weekly bike rides a routine with your spouse or the entire family.
YouTube is not just a website that you can spend hours on, watching funny cat videos – although that is fun. YouTube is also a great fitness tool. It’s home to an endless list of free fitness videos. So many, one person likely would never get through them all. Put YouTube on your television and work out free, in the comfort of your own home.
