The Best New Year’s Resolutions that Support All Your Goals
With the New Year around the corner, everybody's working toward something. So, ring in the New Year with these five simple strategies to keep up your precious energy, support immune health, and promote sunnier moods.* Whatever you strive to accomplish in the coming months, you're more likely to stay the course if you feel your best.
1. Take it down a notch.
Time and time again, research shows the negative impact that chronic stress has on our immune health. There are countless strategies and tools to help bring your mind and body into balance. Things like breath work, stretching, and daily cardio can U-turn those stress hormones and leave you feeling more grounded and chill than before.*
Sometimes mitigating stress means managing our relationships differently. Stress can rear its head even on an interpersonal level. It may be time to shore up boundaries in your relationships or with your ever-demanding job. You know yourself better than anyone, so cherry-pick and see what works for you.
2. Drink up, my friends.
It's simple. Your cells need to communicate. Even being mildly dehydrated can cause disruptions in your mood and cognition — and that's just the beginning.
Your immune system relies on your bloodstream to transport fluid, nutrients, and essential communication signals to your organs – and what's a "stream" without enough water? Staying hydrated can help support communication and biochemical pathways in your immune system.
Drinking plenty of water every day is one of the most effortless pieces of the wellness puzzle to play. Dress up your water with fresh herbs, slices of lemon, lime, or cucumber, even fresh berries and ginger- you name it. Pro tip: Fill up your water bottles in the morning so you can track and drink all that your body needs.
3. Be great in bed.
Studies show that just one subpar sleep can negatively impact a healthy immune response, hormone balance, mental and emotional outlook, and even metabolism.*
You're not alone if you have trouble falling or staying asleep — an estimated 70 million Americans suffer from chronic sleep issues. So what can you do to ensure you're getting 7-9 hours of quality sleep every single night?
Clean up your bedtime routine. Put your phone away, try a weighted blanket or an eye mask to keep things dark and cozy. And, know when to reach for sleep support if you need it. If you want the sleep of your dreams, try Fx Dream, powered by melatonin and 5-HTP. It’s is a delicious way to promote calming brain activity and support the body's ability to fall asleep and stay asleep.* So, off to bed with you!
4. Nourish yourself.
It may seem like the worst, most brutal idea ever we know. Just hear us out. Try cutting out conventional sugar and let the chains of highly processed foods fall by the wayside. Swap in sweeteners like allulose, monk fruit, or stevia, and you'll feel much better without feeling like you're missing out. The only thing missing are the seismic spikes and valleys in your blood sugar levels and all the bodily chaos and harm that ensues.
If you're looking to get the most nutrition from your food — whole, fresh veggies and fruits are where it's at. Superfoods like mushrooms, collards, avocado, quinoa and spinach can bump up your intake of amino acids, vitamin D, and vitamin E. But honestly, it's a full-time job to get all the nourishment you need from food alone.
5. Take high-quality supplements.
In today's world, getting all the nutrients you need from diet alone is challenging. Additional factors such as age, lifestyle, health status, and certain medications may make it difficult to absorb and assimilate essential nutrients, potentially leading to deficiencies.
Our bodies require a continuous supply of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to maintain optimal health. When your body doesn't receive the necessary nutrients, supplements provide the additional support you need to increase the quality of your total dietary intake.
Some formulas on the market use ingredients that are ineffective or less bioavailable. Some contain too little active ingredients. Be mindful of products that may not guarantee that the ingredients listed on the label are in the product.
We recommend getting your hands on our high-quality chocolate supplements to lay a solid foundation for your health this new year and beyond.
