Your New Year Goals- Self-Improvement
One would say that to set ourselves goals is a positive direction when looking at self-improvement.
If the goals set are too big for us to reach, then this could lead to failure and for 2018, we want to be achievers. The idea then is to make small manageable goals that are easy for us to achieve, and then to build on our goals as you go on.
Small Manageable goals- The 3 Simple steps for self-improvement:
Goal 1, Water, our bodies are made up on average of 70% water. Water helps to de-stress the
body, helps with memory, digestive system, improves the quality of your skin and many more.
“Joint cartilage is made up of 70-80% water, so it’s no wonder that lack of hydration results in joint pain. With well-hydrated cartilage, the rate of friction between bones is lower than in dehydrated cartilage. Dehydration can lead to increased degeneration and damage. Hydrated cartilage functions better, and a well-lubricated spine…” Nutrition January 2018
For the reluctant water drinker, perhaps as a start try to take sips of water. Your aim is to be drinking a balanced amount of water suited to your age, gender, climatic conditions and lifestyle patterning.

Goal 2 When we look carefully at the meaning of breakfast. Breakfast means the breaking from having a long and sustained time of fasting, which happens whilst we sleep.
Therefore, breakfast is considered to be an essential meal to start the day, as it provides energy, helps with memory, and mood.
Now ”if you don’t eat breakfast, your body will continue to break down your fuel stores for energy leaving you tired and hungry throughout the rest of the day.” Furthermore, avoiding this very important meal does not encourage reduction of weight, as your body will compensates.
So why not find the right breakfast that you can enjoy. Here are some examples of different types of breakfast, such as Yoghurt, Fruits, Cereal, Toast, Pancakes, Porridge, Omelettes… The list can go on and on.
