“Each morning we are born again. What we do today is what matters most.”
On any special day – be it your birthday, your anniversary, or a start of a new year – we usually tend to make a resolution to better ourselves! A lot of us make a resolution for a regular exercise regime, to lose weight, or to spend some quality time with family and friends.
Here are 6 very simple ways to kick-start your year with:
Let go of negative things
“Don’t look back, you are not going that way”, the most beneficial thing to do for yourself would be to show empathy and gratitude towards other people. Research has proved that counting blessings has shown positive results in reducing your stress levels, depression, and slows down the effects of aging.
An hour of physical exercise
Let’s commit ourselves to work for a minimum of 1 hour every day. Maintaining a healthy weight is more important than trying to lose weight or going for Yo-Yo weight. The very important thing is to find the time and set that routine. You can go for 30 minutes’ walk in the morning and 30 minutes later or 1 hour of cardio or 1 hour of yoga or join a dance class. Any physical exercise releases good hormones and keeps your mood elevated.

Start your morning with a long stretch and a beautiful smile. A new study suggests that holding a smile on one’s face during periods of stress may help the heart. This happens, because when you smile – feel-good neurotransmitters dopamine, endorphins, and serotonin are all released which helps relieve stress and control heart rate.
