We all want to be happier and healthier in the year that is just about to arrive but our resolutions are often vague and difficult to reach. Becoming healthy need not be overpowering. Here are six healthy New Year’s resolutions to get toward optimum well-being in the coming New Year.
The meditation has scientific support to justify its growing popularity. Studies have shown that meditation can help us to become more centered and relaxed, and can also literally change the configuration of our brain, increasing gray matter density and transforming the way the neurons are connected. A recent study found that even meditation causes changes in gene level, particularly genes that regulate stress and inflammatory responses. Finally, the meditative practice also helps you feel better throughout the day, just like an act of shutting down and restarting your computer.
You already know, but it bears repeating – exercising your body is one of the best and quickest ways to remain healthy and young forever. Until recently, we thought the adult brain was relatively unchanged. In the last decade, studies have shown that it can even sprout new neurons, particularly in an area called the hippocampus, which is the seat of learning and memory – and physical activity seems to be a strong trigger for this new nerve growth. In addition to the long-term benefits it can offer to the brain, exercise also increases endorphins in the body; chemicals that make us feel good at the end of training.
Any list of ways to be kind to oneself would not be complete without the food topic. There are many foods with benefits already well illustrated, for example, blueberries; full of antioxidants, or oily fish; full of omega-3, or green vegetables; rich in folic acid, iron and other essential vitamins and nutrients, or turmeric, whose anti-inflammatory properties have been linked to a decreased risk of Alzheimer. Anyway, the options are endless. The golden rule for good health, however, is the decreased intake of processed foods.
Social media is addictive, and makes us unhappy and jealous, and leave us with envy of those around us. Worse yet, it has the unwanted effect of pushing in, rather than connecting us with the people we love. A real social interaction, moreover, improves psychological well-being, happiness, and is further connected to a larger health and longevity. So put your Smartphone aside and talk to the person sitting across you. Also, please send a message on Facebook and call your mother, opt for the phone call as compare to chatting. Of course, visiting someone is definitely the best choice for a healthy dose of social contact.
Mindfulness is another term that has exploded in recent years. All the evidence suggests that this practice can help us to be more present in life, instead of stumbling through it blindly. It can also help people quit smoking and lose weight. The key to mindfulness as taught Jon Kabat-Zinn, is to pay attention to the present moment, without judgment. Watch your thoughts, without reacting to them.
We spent a lot of time focusing on ourselves. So once in a while, it’s good to get the focus out of you and ask about the lives of those around you, a little more deeply. Perhaps there is a person in your office who always looks a little sad and could enjoy a good conversation. Or maybe your friend has spent a lot of time helping you with a problem in your life, and now is the time to pay back. If you do, make people around you more interesting and valuable which also will make you a more valuable friend.
This is an offshoot of the latter, but in a more noticeable way. It is true that we have to improve ourselves to be kind to others, but the other side is also true: we must help others to heal. Gandhi said, “If you want to know yourself, serve others.” Do something good for those around you, and you will see that this will help in a way that is hard to put into words.
