4 Ways to Keep Up Your Resolution for a Healthier You


With every new year comes the opportunity for a fresh start. You make your list of resolutions and imagine the new you, but did you imagine the steps and the work you will need to put in to achieve your goals? Many people don’t, and if you don’t go in with a plan you’re less likely to succeed.

One of the most popular new year’s resolutions of 2015 is to lose weight and get fit, and if living a healthier lifestyle is on your list, we are here to help you reach your goal. Aside from getting a gym membership, there are other tools that can help you achieve a healthier version of you this year:

Eating Healthy

Let’s start in the kitchen. One of the biggest excuses for not eating healthy is “I haven’t got the time.” Preparing healthy food is often looked at as time consuming, but with the proper tools you can prepare healthy meals in minutes. Here are 2 of our favorites:

The NutriBullet

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Unfortunately, if you’re like most people, mornings can be hectic! Either you have no time for breakfast and skip it, or you pick something up of low nutritional value on your way to work. Studies have shown that if you start the day with a healthy breakfast you will have more energy throughout the day and be less likely to overeat at your next meal. With the NutriBullet you can create a delicious and nutritious smoothie to go in seconds. Not only is it a time saver, but a much better option than a regular household blender. NutriBullet has a powerful 600 watt motor and extractor blade; it can open seeds, crack through stems, shred skins, and access hidden nutrients in food. Click here for some healthy recipes for you to enjoy with it!

Food Processors

Create a delicious salad or the perfect veggie topping to complete any meal in minutes!  When it comes to preparing dinner that night or your lunch for the next day, a food processor will save you a lot of prep time. If you need some ideas on healthy meals you will find plenty of recipes online. The healthy options are endless and the time you will save is priceless!

Substituting Habits

I’m sure you’ve heard it before: if you’re looking to cut calories, cut out the soda. If you happen to be a soda addict this is a lot harder than it sounds. With SodaStream you can keep the soda in your life and cut back on the calories. SodaStream’s cola uses a mix of zero-calorie Splenda and sugar, delivering only 8 grams of sugar per 8 ounce serving, compared to about 27g of sugar for a Coke. And if you break that down by calories per serving, SodaStream looks good with 35 calories verses nearly 100 calories for that Coke! The trick is to keep your daily consumption between 8-12 ounces. If you want to eliminate more calories, SodaStream is great for just carbonating water and adding fresh lemon juice.

Being Active

Eating healthy isn’t the only thing you can do to improve your health. Being active, whether it’s walking or jogging 15-20 minutes a day, can greatly improve your health and fitness. An activity tracker can help motivate you to be more active. These devices track your activity level, calories burned, heart rate, sleep time, and let you know if you are on target to reach your daily goals. Some trackers let you challenge friends, turning everyday fitness into a social, fun, achievable way to a healthier you. We have a variety of activity trackers to choose from that will help you reach your fitness goals. For some tips on eating healthy and being active, you can also follow our ‘Health and Wellness’ board on Pinterest.

A Good Night’s Sleep

Eating healthy and being active are important to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, but there’s one more thing that’s equally important, and often overlooked: sleep.  Sleep plays an important role in your physical health, including healing and repairing of your heart and blood vessels. Ongoing sleep deficiency is linked to an increased risk of heart disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and stroke. Sleep deficiency also increases the risk of obesity. Sleep helps maintain a healthy balance of the hormones that make you feel hungry (ghrelin) or full (leptin). When you don’t get enough sleep, your level of ghrelin goes up and your level of leptin goes down. This makes you feel hungrier than when you’re well-rested.

If you’re not sleeping well you should first consider your mattress, pillow and bedding, as these can all have significant impacts on your sleep. It’s important to find out what type of mattress is best for the type of sleeper you are. Check out our ‘Mattress Buying Guide’ to learn more.

Next, think about the sheets you use. Are you too hot or cold during the night, or do the sheets irritate your skin? How about your pillow; some people don’t realize that a good pillow can make all the difference.  Bedgear makes pillows that are designed specifically for the way you sleep. Check them out here. For more tricks and tips to getting a good night’s sleep follow our board ‘Sweet Dreams’ on Pinterest.


Losing weight and getting healthy is the most popular resolution every year, and for good reason! A healthier you is a happier you, and we hope you found the above tips helpful. How else do you resolve to stay healthy in the new year? Let us know in the comments!

Dads appreciate their space, whether it’s the garage, basement or a room that has been transformed into a “Man Cave.” They will disappear and spend countless hours of their time there.
