Energy For Change

As the new year arrives, lots of us make resolutions to change a habit or two. One 2015 U.K. study showed the main reason people were unable to make a change was that they were too tired to focus. Use these three simple steps to find energy for change in the new year.

1. Keep a Fatigue Diary

Once you pinpoint the time of day you feel draggy, you can make adjustments. For example, if you're tired in the afternoon, you may need to rethink what you eat for lunch or try to drink more water.

2. Make a To-Don't List

After you write out your to-do list, ask yourself which tasks really need to get done - and which are not realistic or important. The latter constitute your to-don't list. Drawing a line through them removes energy-draining clutter from your mind.

3. Pencil In Bedtime

Most of us don't think of sleeping as actively doing something, so we don't plan it. When you put it in your calendar, it becomes a priority, the same way your gym time and work meetings are priorities. Set a reminder to alert you a half hour before you plan to hit the sack.

Reboot your energy and find the focus you need 
to choose a healthy-lifestyle habit for 2018.

Stay Active, Keep Moving and
Enjoy Your Food
