Top 7 New Year Resolutions
Our curated selection of the most impactful resolutions for your 2022
Over the last two years we have learned the importance of not taking our physical and mental health for granted. For this reason, we want to provide you a curated selection of the 7 New Year Resolutions that can help you have a positive impact on yourself, the society and the planet.
1. Eat vegetables regularly
How moms were right! We need to eat as many vegetables as possible. Vegetables are especially crucial for having a healthy heart, a strong immune system and lower risk of cancer. Even though the exact amount varies depending on age and sex, the recommended quantity is between 2 to 4 cups a days. All veggies count towards your daily quota. That includes starchy ones (like potatoes), leafy greens, canned tomatoes and frozen spinach.
2. Exercise more
In today's life it is more and more difficult to find time to exercise properly. However, studies show that even just 15 minutes of walking around the neighborhood has strong benefits on our health. Moreover, exercising regularly has been shown to reduce your risk of major illnesses, such as coronary heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and cancer and lower your risk of early death by up to 30%.
3. Meet New People
We all love to stay in the comfort of our home or hanging out with our old friends. However, we might be losing a lot of interesting opportunities for networking and having fun. On the other hand, going to events, workshops or simply joining a new club would allow us to meet new people, with consequent direct effect on our mental well-being.
4. Be More Polite
We are often so focused on accomplishing our goals that we forget the importance of making small gestures to improve other people’s lives. Just smiling to a stranger that we cross in the street might improve her/his day, which increases the likelihood of her/him being polite with a stranger or a colleague. This can become a virtuous circle that can improve our society.
5. Drink more water
Getting enough water throughout the day is important for everything in our bodies to function. From heart to brain, digestion, muscles, skin, and bones... it all starts with being adequately hydrated. Staying hydrated allows, among others, to have a stronger immune system, sharper memory and concentration and higher energy levels.
6. Fight plastic waste
Each year, 8 million metric tons of plastic pollution enters our oceans. That’s one city dump truck per minute. By 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. The simplest things that you can do to reduce the amount of plastic being produces is switching from item made of single use plastic to durable and reusable products
7. Take action against climate change
Our planet is in danger and we need to act now! 3 simple but effective actions to do our part against global warming:
- getting to work by bike
- eating less meat
- switching off lights and appliances when we don’t need them.
