Moving into 2022 is not about resolutions. It is about taking what made us happy, productive and fulfilled in 2021 and continuing those habits in 2022. It is about sifting through what made us feel less happy, less accomplished and less satisfied and eliminating those energy suckers!
Over the next few days, I want to share the hacks which have worked for me in terms of lifestyle, fitness and health so that you can determine if you want to incorporate them into your 2022 fresh start.
So here we go:
Fitness Hack – ready your clothes, equipment, water bottles, podcast, headlamp etc for exercise the night before so that ideally, you can roll out of bed and roll right into your running shoes, onto your bike, rowing machine, elliptical or your mat for strength work. Ideally, exercise in the morning when there is little competing for your time and feel the energy and mental spark from the workout throughout your entire day.
Lifestyle Hack – touch things once! For example, when you come home from work or the gym or school and you inevitably drop your bag on a chair, unload the items directly into their rightful place in your home. Put the file in your filing cabinet. Put the book on your desk. Put your leftover lunch in the fridge. Put your dirty dishes right into the dishwasher. You get the idea. This is a massive timesaver!
Healthy Hack and product recommendation – fighting disease or injury is all about reducing inflammation. In my experience, the best anti-inflammatory is Fish Oil along with an antioxidant. I have been using The Zone Omega RX (fish oil) and Maqui RX (antioxidant) and have not taken a prescription anti-inflammatory since 2006! You can find them at https://zonediet.com (I also eat a Zone RX bar every morning before exercising). I also take Bergamet supplements. They contain the super fruit Bergamot which is an antioxidant ultimately promoting cardiovascular and metabolic health, reducing cholesterol and boosting immunity. I take Clinical Immune, Pro+, HerHeart and SportsHeart. You can find them at https://bergametna.com
