Happy New Year… and kudos for making it over the holiday hump! While the holiday season is wonderful and rewarding, it may also leave you feeling overwhelmed and sluggish. After a flurry of food, family, and travel, isn’t it a relief to have a fresh start called “January”?

3 Healthy Resolutions for 2015

Part of enjoying a new year’s potential is to make a few resolutions—things that will help you get back on track with healthy routines that nourish YOU. Of course, you can make the usual food-drink-exercise resolutions, but what about taking a different approach this year? It’s super simple, and we call it “the Three S’s for Good Health.”

A New Chapter in Healthy Resolutions

  • Sleep. Maybe you’re going to the gym with renewed purpose, taking more walks, or trying a new exercise class. To support fitness success, there’s one thing that your body needs no matter what—adequate sleep. While different people function well on different amounts of sleep, adults generally need between 7 and 9 hours a night. One simple tip for better sleep is just to be consistent—go to bed and wake up at the same time every day, even on weekends. Having a set bedtime routine (bath and book, for example), can also support sleep.
  • Soup! Whether you live in a cold climate or not, winter is the perfect season for making hearty soups laden with nutrients from vegetables and lean proteins. Making healthy soup can be pretty easy. For example, use a slow cooker to throw together a mix of veggies in the morning—like kale, squash, and carrots. Add beans or lentils plus your favorite herbs and spices (a shake of Oregano? a dash of Turmeric?), then cover with broth or water. When you get home from work, a hot, nourishing soup is waiting for you!
  • Supplements! You can rely on a complete multivitamin to help fill nutritional gaps and lay a foundation for your healthy routines—whether you’re seeking a convenient One Daily or broad nutritional support. New Chapter has you covered with a full line of whole-food cultured multivitamins for men and women at every stage of life. Our formulations are targeted for those under 40, over 40, with active lifestyles, or for women who are pregnant or planning to be.* New Chapter’s cultured multivitamins are gentle enough to take anytime—even on an empty stomach.

However you choose get back to good health in the New Year, New Chapter wishes you and your loved ones a happy, healthy 2015. May you feel cozy, rested, and nourished each day!
