(BPT) - It’s a new year and many of us are working to keep up our 2021 resolutions around better personal health and wellness. Throughout the past year, people have learned that making health a priority is more important than ever. In 2021, it’s the perfect time to set attainable health goals and make self-care a top priority.
Premium supplement brand, Alani Nu, and The Vitamin Shoppe have teamed up to share their top tips for putting your health and self-care first in 2021:
1. Set Achievable Goals and Be Patient
While you may have a long-term goal of running a marathon, it's important to think about the baby steps along the way. Start with an achievable goal that you can celebrate and build momentum upon. Keep up a healthy diet, train with intensity, get that cardio done, and be patient for your newly instilled routines to become a natural part of your daily lifestyle.
2. Stay Motivated and Energized
Wellness is a journey, not a destination, and it takes putting yourself first, day after day. To help fuel your motivation, begin your day with a Cosmic Stardust Energy drink from Alani Nu, with zero sugar, 10 calories and a dash of biotin to support your natural glow.
3. Fuel Your Workouts
Set aside some time each day to get moving! There are so many options to get your body the movement it needs, like running, lifting or taking a class (virtually, of course!). One way to stay powered through your workout is to incorporate Alani Nu Pre-Workout into your routine, with no fillers and plenty of L-Theanine, along with Alani Nu Whey Protein, which supports muscle growth and recovery. Both are delicious, high quality, and will help fuel your fitness goals.
4. Find Ways to Stay Accountable
Accountability is the key in helping you stay focused and motivated. Keep a daily workout journal, set a motivational reminder on your phone, or find a workout buddy you can count on! If an in-person workout buddy isn't possible right now, consider planning to take the same virtual workout classes together. You can also discuss nutrition plans or simply update each other on your daily workout plan.
5. Add Supplements into Your Daily Routine
While you can have the best meal plan ever, it may still have some nutritional gaps, so consider adding a supplement into your routine that supports your overall wellness goals. One favored by the Health Enthusiasts at The Vitamin Shoppe is Alani Nu Balance, which supports hormonal balance, weight management, improved mood, and a brighter complexion. There’s a reason this is one of Alani Nu’s most popular supplements!
6. Snack Smarter
When the munchies strike, set yourself up for smart snack choices by stocking up with healthy alternatives to junk foods. Ditch the chips and sugary treats that leave you feeling unsatisfied, and wanting to eat more, and get your fix with a healthy, filling option like Alani Nu’s Fit Snacks Protein Bars. Containing 170 calories, 16 grams of protein and only 5 grams of sugars, you'll feel satisfied without the guilt.
7. Don't Compare Yourself to Others
One person's progress doesn't define your own, so remember this is YOUR personal journey. It's important to focus on yourself and your successes — both big and small.
