The health risks associated with eating meat regularly is increasing ,so tell yourself “I will eat less meat in 2016”. Say it again and louder. Fish would be a nice substitute, but not a super sub because it too has its own health risks. So keep everything moderate.
2. Engage in more physical activity
A healthy body has to be engaged in physical exercise. If you spent 2015 always driving or always taking transport, its time to use your legs. Taking more frequent walks will go a long way in keeping you in healthy shape. Tell yourself “I will engage in more consistent physical activities in 2016″. Infact tell your neighbour ” I will exercise more in 2019″.
