Tip #1 Give those calories a burn
Expert studies have found that 10,000 steps a day can keep the doctor away. So, why to wait, either you want to jog, walk, run, fidget or just stand at your desk, it’s all up to you.

Tip #2 Create a Diet of your own
Are you bored of watching the same diet plans flood the internet? Well, it is your time to go creatively. Either you want to live on raw pressed juices, or would like to go vegan, it is your call this year. Nobody knows your body better than you. It is your time to create a diet for yourself with a mix of healthy juices, protein shakes, fruits, vegetables, infused water or anything that keeps you fit and healthy.
Tip #3 Ditch those gadgets
We know you love your gadgets so much, but are they worth taking to bed with you? Good night sleep matters much to your physical and mental health. Turning off these volcanoes of radiation or just staying away from them during sleep time can make you a much healthier person. Hence, spending less or zero nights with gadgets goes to our mid-year resolution list as well.
Tip #4 Conscious Sleep Pattern
You might have been a night owl all your life, but it’s time to try something new. Create a fixed and healthy bedtime routine and add it to your mid-year resolution. Make it a habit of going to bed at the same time everyday for a period of 28 days. If you can survive the 28-day challenge, make a commitment to adhere to the habit. Trust me, it works like magic and your body craves for that discipline after 28 days.
Tip #5 Give yourself some love
When was the last time you had appreciated yourself for something? Does that sound strange? Self-love isn’t strange but a healthier way to boost your self-conscious with some positive energy. Studies revealed that loving yourself makes you a better person from in and out. Start writing a journal, or maintain a gratitude journal to appreciate all the little things in life. It makes a lot of difference to how you perceive your life.
