“The only thing that is constant is change”
So January is usually when we imagine the beginning of a new year is what gives us the motivation to reinvent ourselves only to fail a few days in because we were not actually ready for major changes.
But this year is a little different, the world is still in total chaos. All we need now is an alien invasion and I don’t know about you, but that wouldn’t even shock me right now.
So one thing we can focus on is ourselves. Giving yourself a bit of self love!
For some, its the best time to make major changes because the festive season can be a stressful time anyway. So if you haven’t already made any new years resolutions or maybe you have and failed subsequent of the never ending lockdown rules then why not just make small changes.
I love a list as much as the next person but it can sometimes seem daunting when you give yourself too many goals. Make small changes that become a habit; it may take you longer but working on a routine will change your life. Don’t sucked into a vortex of procrastination and and embrace the change.
We are already into the second week of January so no new years resolutions or Monday goals to worry about.
Here are just a few small changes you can make:
(you don't even have to do them all, just try one or two)
Challenge yourself to cook one plant based meal a day. Or just replace one meal with a plant based one, even try someone of the amazing plant based eateries in the city.
Swap to milk alternatives - my favourite is almond barista milk in coffee, rice milk in tea, oat milk to cook with. (I’ll do a more detailed write up of our favourite dairy free milks.)
Drink a pint of water first thing in the morning before anything else
Go for a 20 minute walk at least 3 times a week, everyday if possible. Get some fresh air in them lungs!
Stretch your body first thing in the morning to get those muscles to increase those energy levels.
“The Only Thing That Is Constant Is Change -” ― Heraclitus
Heraclitus was famous for his insistence on ever-present change as being the fundamental essence of the universe. This is such a good way of thinking. Change will always happen, so why not be in control of it where you can.
Keep an eye out for our list of our favourite plant based eateries this week.
Live your true life!
