A New Year, a New You…


We’ve all been merry and probably over-indulged in a little too much gammon and Christmas pud and had a few too many G&T’s this festive season. But now, it’s time to get back on track, fuel your body with all the good stuff to give you a fresh start into the new year. 

Here are five tips to help you maintain a healthy physical and mental balance.

  1. Start with a sustainable, health plan: 

While there is nothing wrong with a good detox diet to reset your body for the new year, it is not a long-term solution to maintaining your goal weight. Begin by:

  • Eating natural, nutritious whole foods like fruits and vegetables 
  • Exercise daily and set aside time to relax to help manage stress 
  • Follow a healthy sleep routine 
  • Stay hydrated 
  • Say no to processed food and alcohol.
  1. Stock up on good supplements

Most of us do not receive enough vitamins and nourishment from our diets. You need to eat less sugar and get a high quality supplement to support your body such as nutrient-rich, 100% nature-based Marcus Rohrer Spirulina. Studies show that spirulina, a blue-green algae, is packed with nutrients, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory properties which may help reduce toxins in the body and improve muscle strength, endurance, overall health, and immunity.

  1. Make mental health a priority

You need to pay attention to your mental health. Limit screen time, maintain social connections and manage stress. This will help you control overeating and lack of sleep, reduced exercise and increased weight gain. 

  1. Get enough sleep

Sleep is not a guilty pleasure. Chronic sleep deprivation can lead to several physical and mental issues including diabetes, hypertension, anxiety and depression. Just 30 minutes of exercise a day can lower the risk of depression, according to studies.

  1. Be kind to yourself 

Self-care is not a selfish indulgence. To survive in this tough world, you need to look after and be kind to yourself. Socialising with family and good friends is important to balance your life.
