For many of us, the new year brings with it a time of reflection in which we set our intentions for the months ahead. Each January many of us set big resolutions, and the data shows that up to 80% of these goals are not met. The psychology behind New Year’s Resolutions speaks to the need for inner reflection before outward change can be realized. We have to start where we are and celebrate the good in us if we want to move forward with joy.
The Professional Supplement Center team wants to help you in your journey this year, so we are kicking 2022 off with healthy ways to celebrate YOU in the New Year.
Lean Into Affirmations
The stories we tell ourselves about who we are have a dramatic impact on the way we view and interact with the world. If our self-talk is generally negative, we believe those lies and live accordingly. Starting a practice of daily affirmation is one of the best healthy ways to celebrate YOU in the New Year.
Gratitude is a Game Changer
The scientific links between gratitude and overall mental and physical health are strong. Starting a daily practice of gratitude can improve your life across the board from productivity to sleep. To get started, try listing three things you’re thankful for each day in a small gratitude journal before falling asleep.
Up Your Supplement Game
Everyone has different needs when it comes to supplements, but some products can be beneficial for almost everyone.
Omega 3 fatty acids cannot be produced by the human body, meaning we have to get it from our food or in supplement form. Fish oil supplements contain essential omega-3s and are a great way to ensure adequate levels, especially if your diet isn’t rich in fatty fish and nuts.
Greens and Superfoods
The ideal human diet is rich in superfoods and dark, leafy greens. Unfortunately, whether it’s due to taste buds, a lack of cooking skills, or a busy schedule – many of us need a boost of these beneficial nutrients.
This is where Greens and Superfood Supplements like Power Greens Chocolate by NuMedica can help fill in the gaps in your diet. This easy-mixing powder mix is loaded with certified organic, whole food plant extracts
Science is still learning about the innumerable ways that the gut is connected to our overall health. Many practitioners recommend supporting the gut by taking quality probiotics to help bring the “good bacteria” into balance.
If you’re looking for a quality probiotic, Broad Spectrum Probiotic & Prebiotic from Prescript-Assist is a great place to start. Containing 28 strains of soil-based organisms, this probiotic helps replenish beneficial microflora while supporting a healthy immune response.
Whole Food Supplements
Whole foods are those that have been minimally processed and are free from artificial additives. Hopefully, your diet is already full of foods that fit this description. If you’re still making changes to the way you eat and need some support, whole food supplements can help you fill in nutrient gaps.
