Why wait for the whole year to pass before you complete your new year's resolutions? Here are some lasting resolutions to make now so you know you made a great difference to the earth, community and your health within the first month of the year.
1. quit buying bottled water
The global plastic waste situation has gone out of hand and warnings abound for the leaching of plastic chemicals into water. Surplus packaging for a daily necessity like water is unnecessary waste. Commit to recyclable glass bottles, tap, water filters like the Bobble (not an advertisement, we just think it's great) to accomplish Evolve Asia's number one resolution this year.
2. take care of your intestines (and in turn your health)
The father of medicine, Hippocrates, knew that the source of all illness is in the intestines. Research into the correlation between intestinal health and mental illness and even intestinal health and the incidence and recovery of the flu, has proven that Hippocrates knew what he was talking about. Boost your immune system this year by keeping your intestines happy. Keep hydated. Take more moist fiber. Take more active live cultures like yogurt, kefir or probiotic supplements to maintain intestinal flora balance.
3. slow down
The pace of life today is immediate and hectic enough.Why wait for economic meltdowns and life's curveballs to help you to appreciate the sweetness of everyday life? Evolve Asia's third resolution is to slow down, take care of the essentials and consciously appreciate the things we always take for granted. You may be surprised that the efficiency stemming from heightened awareness as a result of deliberate control over one's destructive thought patterns can fast forward or change one's quality of life.
