A healthy lifestyle is all about building habits that become part of your everyday routine. A single meal or workout won’t make a difference – but a consistent approach will. Follow our tips to help you prioritise your health for the year ahead.

Over the past year, we’ve spent more time at home and more time online than ever before. It’s hard to know how this has impacted on our health. Some people have found more time to cook meals and less time stuck in traffic while others may have found life much more stressful than before.

It’s likely that many old habits have changed and new habits have been formed. Whatever your situation, the New Year is a good time to reset, refresh and focus on the year ahead.

Why set a health goal?

Healthy habits such as practising mindfulness, getting enough sleep, regular physical activity and eating plenty of nourishing foods can help you to get the most out of every day. When these habits are performed consistently, they positively impact on our work, relationships, and mental and physical health.

Setting a health goal can help you focus your attention on the things that are important to you. Once you have a goal, it becomes easier to think about the smaller actions and behaviours you need to put in place to build healthier habits.
