| 1/20/2015 7:00:00 AM


The start of a New Year evokes contemplating on the previous months and marks a clean slate for everything you want to see happen in your life. Who wouldn’t want to live life to the fullest? This 2015, cultivate healthy habits that will help you lead healthier and better lives. Here are eight mindful habits to help make 2015 your year.

1. Buy Less; Help The Earth. Everybody has a duty to lessen their carbon footprint, the amount of carbon dioxide and other carbon compounds emitted due to the production of goods and services. According to Carbonfund.org, manufacturing products produce 4 to 8 pounds of CO2 for every pound of manufactured product. In a world that’s growing more and more materialistic, live simply by reusing and recycling whenever possible. Not only will it help combat global warming, it will make you realize that the best things in life don’t come with a price tag.

2. Be Savings-Savvy. Money isn’t everything, but it certainly doesn’t hurt to live a comfortable life borne out of secure savings. Allocate your windfall earnings—a bonus, gift or extra cash—wisely, advises Reader’s Digest. Divide it into three parts: past, present and future. Use the first part to pay a debt, the second to spend on present necessities or even indulgences, and the third to prepare for the future.

3. Change the Way You Look at Fitness. Most people only exercise when they feel like losing weight. While there’s nothing wrong with that, you should transform your perception of fitness. Instead of merely aiming to lose weight, strive for a healthy and fit lifestyle. Doing so doesn’t have to mean devoting hours to Spartan-style training. You just need to incorporate fitness in your daily regimen and tap the resources that you may already have right in your own home or community. Use the stairs whenever you can. Make use of yoga videos on YouTube and kick-start a healthier you right in the comfort of your own home. Need a fun and social way to getting fit? Just ask if your homeowners’ association or condo administration offer Zumba sessions.
