Making realistic resolutions & responsible choices

I’ll be honest with you and say that this year, I haven’t been as diligent as I should have been with my health. Like many Canadians, I made myself promises on January first and set goals for myself that may have been slightly too ambitious. As the year comes to an end I am finding myself making realistic resolutions that I will be able to accomplish. First of all, I won’t be so hard on myself for not meeting the previous year’s goals. There is no shame in admitting you couldn’t do something or simply didn’t get the time to.

Moving forward, I will make smarter, more responsible choices on a daily basis instead of trying to think of the entire year at once. And most importantly, I will provide myself the tools I need to achieve these goals. One of my resolutions is to improve my finances so I recently found the best canadian stock market app that will help me learn about investing. If your resolution is about learning a new skill then buy some basic tools to get started. The list goes on. Who said there was no such thing as New Years Gifts? Nobody, that’s who. I’ve got just the gifts you need to reset those goals with me and get back to a healthier you.

Obviously Christmas has come and gone, and to be honest I’m kind of happy for that. This year was a tough one for me personally. Not to mention I have faced some uphill battles as a small business owner. But I made a promise to myself that I wasn’t going to focus on the negative. I was going to give the world, the universe, and myself the best version of me. Whether that was in the cards and gifts I sent around the world for the holidays or just the energy I gave out in my day-to-day. I’ve said it before, and I will say it again, sometimes the biggest change you can make in your life is to simply change your perspective on it. 

I’ve written about many a subscription box in the past. From coffee to chocolate and all the indulgences in between. But when I sat down to look at the new year and set a goal with my nutritionist and trainer, I thought it was probably time for a change. It’s why the combination of SodaStream & a Much Better subscription have truly come to the rescue. 

And how did I find out about Much Better? To be honest, like many of you, I went googling to find healthier options because I knew there had to be something out there to help me 1. keep snacking and 2. do it in a better way. 

“Most people want to make better food choices but face a number of roadblocks: busy schedules, confusing labels, and a lack of nutritious (and exciting) snack options at work. When we noticed more creative health food products popping up – many of them made in Canada – we wanted to share these products with a larger audience.”

I think that as the year comes to an end, and we all feel that final release of letting go of it all, that we need to remember to be a little more kind to ourselves. No, I don’t have the six pack I wanted. No I don’t have those biceps the size of tree trunks. But yes, I do have my health. I have my family. I have my friends. And I have the ability to make small changes to my life to achieve the goals I want to achieve both inside and outside one day at a time. To learn more about SodaStream and their products that have helped to improve my life and the life of my family, click here.
