This post aims to help you tailor your resolutions to get the best result. It is a common tradition that most of us partake in but read ahead to make sure you get the most out of your 2013 goals!

1. Lead a Healthier Lifestyle:
So often times, we make resolutions for very specific changes that we think will allow us to live a healthier lifestyle. Contrarily, healthy living is made up of many components. Only going on a strict diet, or starting a regular work-out regimen alone is not enough to make that comprehensive change. These things tend to deliver short term satisfaction (such as losing 5 pounds in the first month) but on the overall scheme of things, do little for your overall well being.

Our suggestion is to resolve for something more outstanding. Aim for a more nutritious eating routine instead of that quick and easy “no carbs diet”. Whole organic vegetables, extra lean meat, natural fats in fish and nuts, micro greens, and natural fiber are all great sources for essential nutrition. Formulate your exercise regimen with practices of all kinds such as yoga, aerobics, cardio, hiking, and more instead of just lifting weights and running miles. All of these things paired together will bring you to (and keep you at) a much healthier state of being – all year long!

2. Doing Good for Others Does Much Good for You:
Time and time again studies have shown that acts of kindness contribute greatly to our well beings. For example, a study cited by the Huffington Post Newspaper of women suffering from breast cancer who acted as mentors and mentees in a support group showed that those who acted as mentors did significantly better in recovery than those who did not offer such help to others.

Take a second out of your days to do something nice for someone who has never done anything for you, who could never possibly pay you back. You feel feel the instant gratification of knowing you’ve contributed positively in the world, and the positivity will translate into your health as well!

3. Stress Less, It will Do You Big Favors:
Doctors and researchers alike have often agreed that stress is one of the greatest contributors to health decline. The increased amount of constant digital communication, paired with the fast pace in which our world is moving today,  it is often difficult to manage our stress. The average American with a steady job faces many extra responsibilities on top of their work duties alone. May it be family duties, our social lives, or our romantic woes, stressors seem to be at the end of every corner we turn.

Luckily, technology has made it a little easier to manage our stress. In this article, John Pavley discusses an app that he downloaded on his smart phone which helps him manage his stress significantly.

Knowing what stresses you out is the first step to change – take the time to identify those factors and find ways to reduce your stress. Find your happy place – your body will thank you in the long run.

It has been an amazing 2012 documenting our products, food, events, and so much more. Our company strives to bring you the best in micro green products and are always hoping to show you more ways to creatively enjoy your Micro Salads. We are looking forward to another year full of colorful photos to share our exciting journey with you!
