Health goals for January that aren't weight loss related | Balance
New Year's resolutions are right around the corner and, as we ring in the new year, many of us are thinking about our health goals for the coming months.
Whilst weight loss is often a top priority, there are plenty of other goals you can set that aren't related to your size or number on the scale.
Afterall, who's to say that the healthiest version of you is also the smallest?
Here are six simple goals for a healthier, happier you this January...
1. Nail down a solid routine
When it comes to getting healthier, it's important to have a routine that you can stick to. Our routine is like a blueprint and we are the product of that blueprint. Having a routine that serves you and your current circumstances will help you stay on track and see results over time.

2. Eat more fruits and vegetables
Fruits and veggies are jam packed full of physical and mental health promoting nutrients, vitamins and minerals.
Many of us know that we should be having more but still fail to achieve that. Set yourself a realistic target which is sustainable and make it fun. Yes, FUN. Food doesn't have to be boring and health is not a burden. Come up with a challenge; explore a new cuisine or try some new textures!
3. Get up at the same time every morning
Maintaining a healthy sleep schedule is important for your overall health and well-being. Sleeping too much or too little can have negative consequences on your body and mind.
One way to maintain a good sleep schedule is to get up at the same time each morning. This will help regulate your body's natural circadian rhythm, which plays a role in how well you sleep. Setting a consistent wake-up time can be tough, but it's worth it for the benefits it provides.
