Congratulations! You did it! 

You made it through 2021… And, that’s no small feat!

If you are ready to say, “good riddance,” to 2021, you’re in good company. It seems like the entire human race is anxiously awaiting its departure. 

But are you looking forward to 2022? Of course, nothing magically changes from December 31 to January 1, but it’s the fresh, clean start of a newborn year that ushers in hope. New beginnings are powerful, and we have some suggestions to get you started in the most positive and proactive ways. 

1. First (and most importantly), spend more time on relationships:

Spend time with God and with the people you love and care about. This year has been challenging for us with so much loss. Don’t waste time! Call that friend you haven’t talked to in ages. Spend some time praying with a family member. Tell that person how much you love them. Being in excellent health and living into your 90’s doesn’t mean much if you don’t spend that time well.

2. Remember to eat 5 live foods each day.

 If you want to have a better sense of well-being and health, eat live foods every day. What’s live food? Raw fruits and vegetables as well as nuts. It doesn’t matter what diet you choose to try; all of the ones worth doing will have life foods at their cornerstone.

3. Supplement Well.

You knew this one was coming, right? You don’t have to take 20 pills a day, but there are some basics that EVERYONE should look into. Probiotics, a good multivitamin, and Omega-3’s are a MUST. What have you got to lose? Take this opportunity to try something new! Know someone already supplementing well? Ask about their experiences. Does it cure cancer, regrow hair and help you grow six inches? Of course not. Proper supplementation gives your body the components it needs to function and heal the way God intended it to.

4. Get More Sleep.

Many of us don’t sleep the necessary 7-8 hours each night. Whether you have too much to do, love the quiet time in the house, or have a health challenge like insomnia, getting enough sleep is of paramount importance. Don’t cheat yourself! Sleep is when your body does dozens of healing and maintenance functions. Your brain uses the time to clean itself. If you deprive yourself of adequate sleep long enough, you’ll see significant negatives in your attention, focus, and mood, as well as digestion, cardiovascular health, and more.

5. Ask for help.

Everyone needs help. But, there’s a weird sense of pride we think we’re risking if we ask for help for so many of us. That is, of course, ridiculous. Don’t let pride stand between you and the help you need. No one knows everything, whether it’s business, finance, relationships, or just fixing the plumbing. If it’s a health issue you need help with, just give Joyce Gibb a call!

No matter what 2021 looked like for you, whether good or ill, you get to start over again in 2022. Your past failures and disappointments have the same amount of hold on you as your past victories. Every year, day, hour, and minute is an opportunity to set a new course. We hope you will seize this chance to move onwards and upwards rather than staying stuck in the unchangeable past.

The beginnings and endings of new years are all part of the rhythm of life. It’s time to embrace new rhythms and new habits. This shiny, bright new year is another opportunity to create a new you!
