As another new year is upon we all feel eager to make changes in our lives and have a fresh start. Just remember to be realistic with what you would like to change and then never look back. Here are ten changes you may need to make in your life:
Eat the right food. Cut out salt and sugar from your diet. Eat out less and buy a cook book to make healthy delicious meals at home. Make sure you drink at least eight glasses of water a day.
2. Get Active
Join a gym and go at least three times a week. If you can afford a personal trainer then it would be beneficial. Go running with a friend or buy a fitness dvd and work out at home.
3. Quit Smoking
Cigarettes are costly and damage your lungs leading to cancer. They age you and remember that cigarettes do not smell of roses.
4. Cut Out Alcohol
Alcohol adds extra calories to your diet and it will increase the risks of you developing liver disease and high blood pressure. A glass or two on a special occasion is fine.
5. Sort Out Your Finances
Start saving for that rainy day, you never know when you may need some extra cash. If you are in debt then try to resolve the problem. Go to citizen's advice or get in touch with a debt management charity like StepChange.
If you do not drive, learn how to. Having your own way to get about can be a blessing.
7. Cut People Off
If you have certain friends that are stopping you from getting what you want out of life and just taking from you say good bye for good. You need positive people in your life.
Make sure you go abroad and see the world. You can even go for a short weekend away if your finances will not stretch that far.
9. Take time out
Have a few minutes for yourself to have a relaxing hot bath, read a book, and reflect on what you have done with your day.
If you are not where you want to be in your career then make a change. Are you in the wrong career or do you need a pay rise. Put a plan in action and make this happen, have a talk with your boss and see what can be done.
