After this last year, we’re certain that you need a fresh, healthy start in 2021, a fresh year yields (re)newed energy. Healthy living starts with devising a health and wellness plan to kick off a new year.

There are plenty of available resources to provide the encouragement you need as you ease into 2021. We sure hope that you’ll consider our site as a go-to resource in the weeks and months ahead.

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act. It’s a habit.” -Aristotle

Let’s get in the habit of developing a wellness routine. There are three key ingredients to building a balanced, healthy regime in the new year:

1. Adjusting your diet.
2. Getting enough exercise.
3. Expanding your mind by reading.

It takes all three to achieve maximum body health. And, setting goals and accessing resources is just the beginning. Developing a new healthy lifestyle will take time. Be gentle and consistent with yourself.

Here are some questions to consider and recommended starter tips:

Are you trying to figure out where to begin on your 2021 journey? Start with managing your diet.

Believe me, I get it. Perhaps one of the most important issues to bear in mind is that healthy living goes beyond your healthy eating habits. Sure, it’s important to eat well-balanced meals and to remain mindful of portion control as your meal plan. Yet, how you manage your diet is only one factor to consider as you plan a healthy and balanced lifestyle.

The Diet Delivery Meal Systems team recommends that you subscribe to one of the meal plan options on BistroMD. They have great go-to meal delivery plans that can help you develop your new healthy eating habits. A popular one to consider is the low carb plan option. Not a meat eater? No problem! There is also a comprehensive, results-driven vegetarian meal plan option with BistroMD balanced meal selections to which you can subscribe.

With BistroMD, you can select either a 5-day or 7-day meal delivery schedule, as well as tailor the food selections within the plan to your specific needs.

Creating good, healthy snacking habits is absolutely possible and fits into my daily eating routine. One of my personal favorites is the nutrition candy bars available at Built Bar. They have snack health bars with and without nuts, as well as built bites and two nutritious flavors of built broth. These snack options are a great complement to a healthy eating plan, increase your protein intake, and will keep you full on healthy foods throughout your day.

Ultimately, this plan will help you begin to think carefully about meal planning, food shopping, and your weight loss journey. A meal plan regimen should outline a blueprint to guide food shopping with your healthy living habits in mind. In 2020, food nutrition labels were updated, for the first time in 20 years. Information such as serving size and calorie content has been refreshed. Take a close look at these as you shop and plan your meals.

Forming a healthy lifestyle regimen takes time. Pace yourself.

Developing a healthier lifestyle takes time. Again, pace yourself; the results are not instantaneous. In fact, it takes at least 21 days to develop a new habit, including adjusting to a new diet, adopting a fitness training regimen, or even shifting your mindset. Some studies suggest that it can take even longer than 21 days to develop a new habit. In some cases, it can take up to a full year.

I’d recommend choosing the following habits to get started this year:

1. Subscribe to a virtual gym resource or purchase at-home gym equipment and set an initial fitness goal. Power Systems is a great resource to consider, sells amazing at home equipment, and can guide you along the way.

2. Exercise your mind – ingest healthy content as part of your total fitness plan. Improving your overall wellbeing goes beyond what you consume and your fitness program. It also includes how you feed your mind.

3. Remember to be encouraged and adaptable, and bear in mind that achieving your goals is indeed possible. Just take it one step at a time, and be both confident and diligent as you proceed.

Set a goal to read more books and consume new content to expand your mind.

This year, commit yourself to a reading goal. Identify those books that you’ve been wanting to read and get to it. Make it happen. Inspire yourself by seeking the wisdom and written guidance of others.

Here’s one to add to your list: The Art of Living by Wilford Peterson. It’s one that a family member has recommended to me, and one that holds a premier spot on my personal bookshelf. This book is deeply moving on many levels. The author explores success, failure, and offers hope through a series of pieces. Once you give it a read, please do reach out to me here and let me know what you think about it.

Proceed with confidence. You’ve got this.
