What Healthy Habits Should You Have For 2022?

25.01.2022

New Year resolutions can often be a very challenging thing to set and stick to, however, they can be really stressful if you don’t stick to them. So we’ve found 5 broad healthy habits which can easily be adopted and worked on throughout the year rather than being big dramatic changes that you have to make instantly.

Set A Sleep Schedule & Stick To It 

Getting enough sleep can be a challenge especially if you don’t have a set routine, this is why we suggest starting a bedtime routine and sticking to it. According to experts, it is recommended adults should get a minimum of 7 hours of sleep. A great way to change your sleeping pattern is to reduce the use of your screen time before heading to bed. The amount of sleep alone isn’t always the issue, it is the quality of your sleep that is important too. 

Hydration 

We all know drinking water is extremely important and keeping your body hydrated is integral to being healthier. Whether you prefer tap, bottled, sparkling or filtered water, it is essential for bodily functions such as transporting nutrients, regulating body temperature and joint health. Some people might find it beneficial to purchase a new water bottle as a form of encouragement.

Plan Your Meals

The biggest reason people often struggle with meals and end up ordering takeaways or junking out is the lack of planning. Set yourself one day a week to plan your meals, mark any groceries you need to buy and decide when you will go and buy them. Not only will this help with knowing what you’ll be eating but also it will help you feel prepared for the week ahead. 

Look After Your Skin

Contrary to popular belief, everyone should have a solid skincare routine to help look after their skin and a key aspect of it should be a good quality SPF. No matter your skin type or where you live, protecting your skin from the UV rays is very important. 

Invest Time in Yourself 

If the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that everyone should be spending more time working on their own mental and physical health. There are a variety of different ways to invest and many that does not necessarily mean spending money as it can be simple things such as taking a walk, writing in a journal, meditating etc. 

There are a variety of different healthy habits that you could adopt in 2022 to help you have a healthier and hopefully happier year.
