It’s the new year & hopefully, you want to use this new begging as a time to upgrade yourself! Every year people make their new years resolutions to completely transform their bodies but we here at AFC Urgent Care Dedham want you all to pick more reasonable goals instead. We would like you to forget about your fitness models or celebrities & focus on yourself. All of these people that you see all over social media did not get that way overnight; they started with small goals & worked their way up which is the best way to do it! Below we will be giving some advice on some attainable goals that will get you started in the right direction to reach your main goals.
Change your diet
Changing your diet does not mean to completely go vegan or vegetarian (unless that is what you want) but instead, it means to start with some tweaks to eat healthier foods. A good start is to incorporate vegetables & clean carbs. Clean carbs can be anything from low-fat rice to wheat pasta, there are many options of clean carbs that you can find out about online or on other platforms! Eating well is extremely important because it gives your body fuel & will control how you feel throughout the day.
Clean your space
Sometimes we are tired & lazy & we do not want to clean up our house or rooms. However, studies show that being in a dirty room will actually make you less productive. Even if you don’t feel like it, looking at a mess all day will trigger some sort of anxiety because you are literally looking at things that need to be done all day. Coming home to a clean house or room will have you feeling relaxed & will also give you a sense of accomplishment. This positive energy can also help give some motivation to get out there & do more things.
You do not need a gym membership to start working out. If you want to start exercising but are afraid you don’t have the time or the money don’t worry. There are many at home workouts that you can look up online that are extremely manageable & will give you results if you stick with it. Once you are comfortable with your at home workouts you can then transition to a gym when you are ready & this way you stay on track yo reach your final goal!
