We say this every year: “New year, new me!” But what if this year, we actually stuck to it! Luckily, we’ve put together some easy steps you can take to be the best you you can be in 2016.

Drink More Water

This is simple! If you’re not already, it’s critically important to stay hydrated and drink enough water. This is something that can easily be incorporated into your life. Remember to bring a bottle of water with you everywhere you go. When you’re at work, take frequent breaks to fill up a glass of water. Frequent trips to the water cooler don’t just mean office gossip — it means a healthier you!

Move More

This can go hand in hand with drinking more water. Getting up to walk around the office, whether it’s getting water or just doing a lap is a small step you can take to becoming healthier. Choices like stairs over the elevator or walking rather than driving are so easy but sometimes not your first choice. Change that in 2016!

Exercise At Least Once A Week

You don’t have to be a gym rat to be active! Whether you’re idea of a workout is a light walk around the block or a sweaty cardio session at the gym, make sure you’re taking time out of your day at least once a week to be fit. Your body and mind will both thank you!

Stick To Your Plans

Do you frequently flake on plans? Stop being that person in the new year! If you make a plan to do something — do it! (Unless of course you’re sick and can’t get out of bed or it’s an emergency). Don’t cancel last minute; be the person that anyone can depend on.

Wear Sunscreen

This seems like a no brainer, but it’s shocking how many people don’t do this! Wearing sunscreen is a must, even in the winter and cloudy climates. Protecting your skin is one thing you’re sure to never regret.

Save Money

Saving money can seem like a daunting task, especially when many of us are supporting families or living paycheck to paycheck. Even if it’s only $5 or $10 dollars, try to put some money away into savings each month. You’ll be surprised at how fast it grows!

Eat Clean

Eating healthy is a goal a lot of people set in the beginning of a year, but unfortunately don’t stick to…don’t let that be you! You don’t have to be fitness obsessed, but making small healthy changes to your diet, like switching out fries for a side salad for example, can help you start the process of starting the healthiest year of your life!
