Aloha to all!
It’s New Year Resolution time already! Over the years of being healthy, I’ve discovered health doesn’t have to cost a fortune or take excessive amounts of time. With this in mind, I compiled a list of 5 simple resolutions anyone can keep this year!
Weight loss 1 pound per month:Sounds scary I know, but it’s really not. One pound per month is .25 lbs per week or 125 calorie deficit per day. Consuming 125 calories less per day is the approximate elimination or 1 glass of milk, 1 slice of bread, or 1 can of soda. Combining that small change every day will equal 12 lbs lost over the year and you didn’t have to break a sweat. Literally! All the while creating healthy eating habits.
Did you know? Individuals become addicted to simple carbohydrates due to the sharp increase of serotonin levels or the “feel good” effect. The “feel good” effect is short-lived because the elevated mood declines quickly as serotonin levels decline. This rapid decline is also known as a sugar crash. For more weight loss tips click here
- Speaking of healthy habits, try:
switching out one unhealthy food for a healthy food each month.Swap soda for tea with lemon, sparkling water with cola stevia, or coffee creamer with coconut milk. Small changes will lead to big results while simultaneously losing weight and creating healthy habits without feeling deprived or overextending oneself. (See? Two resolutions already done!)
Did you know? Optimizing serotonin levels can help eliminate emotional overeating and ultimately regain control of poor eating habits. Learn more about Noni and naturally increasing serotonin levels here
Learn something new:Wanting to learn a new language? This year, you can do it! The secret? Break up your learning into sections for each month. Example: January numbers, February food, March days of the week etc. Learning a little each month can make it easier to remember what you’re currently learning and keep what you have previously learned solid in your mind. This reduces the pressure of mastering everything at once. Not into languages but love food? The same concept still applies. Learn about oranges one month and apples the next (don’t forget about Noni!)
Did you know? Scientist Denise Park believes mental stimulation such as crossword puzzles can increase cognitive function as we age.
Go Somewhere new:
Traveling doesn’t have to be scary or expensive. Go to a new park or public garden or nature reserve. If going on a business trip, take an afternoon or an hour to see the sights and try a new food.

Maintain Connections:Call someone on your friend list each per month. Texting, pinging, tweeting, and snapchat doesn’t count. Call. Have lunch or a cup of coffee. Pull the plug on social media and engage in face to face conversation. Try it!
