New year equals a new you!
1. CHANGE YOUR OUTLOOK ON HEALTH:
Instead of looking at it as all-or-nothing, look at health like balancing an old fashioned scale. All the decisions you make move you closer to one end (good health) or the other end (poor health). For instance, drinking a ‘fizzy cold-drink’ moves you in the wrong direction, while drinking a glass of water moves you in the other. By making small, good choices, you gradually move closer to good health. Why not replace 1 meal a day with an ULTIMA 1 Shake, available in Chocolate, Vanilla or Strawberry?
2. WHOLESOME FOOD:
Make a habit of buying fresh ingredients and preparing good wholesome food at home – not only will you save money, but you will have control over what you eat and be healthier for it. Left-overs are ideal for lunches for school and work.
Exercise is so important on many levels. Find time to do something simple like walking briskly for 30 minutes, 3 times a week. Additionally, make a conscious decision to add in other little routines like, park further away from the mall and walk, or climb the stairs to the 2nd floor as opposed to taking the lift. Challenge yourself to find alternative ways to change your patterns, which involve a bit more effort and therefore burn more calories. If you feel lethargic, try taking ULTIMA ENERGY – a combination of fresh organic spirulina ,a high dosage of vitamin B complex and Panax Ginseng which is designed to combat the effects of stress, unhealthy eating, drinking, smoking etc.
4. REST & RELAXATION:
Make some time for yourself whether it be 1 hour or 1 day. Switch off all electronic equipment – so what if you are not contactable? Media overload can increase your risk of depression and can cause anxiety. Enjoy your relaxation and let your mind wander.
Reduce your stress levels by de-cluttering your home and office. This exercise will boost your mood and energise you – living with clutter drains your energy. Consider trying ULTIMA BRAIN FUEL – a potent blend of adaptogenic herbs, Ginkgo Biloba and B Vitamins which provide a triple action to fight mental fatigue. Brain Fuel improves mental focus, clarity and memory and energises the mind.
Life is what we make of it and small changes in our routines do make a difference, just be patient – we leave you with yet another quote:
“What the new year brings to you will depend a great deal on what you bring to the new year”
– Vern McLellan
We wish you all a very Happy New Year!
