It’s 2021 and we’re moving onwards and upwards.
Let’s face it, 2020 was a bit of a tough slog!
With that year now behind us, it’s little wonder we’re excited to welcome the new year! Not only is it a chance to move on, it’s an opportunity to pull ourselves out of the rut, reset, and start working towards getting our health and wellbeing back on track.
No no, don’t worry. This isn’t one of those lists. New Year’s resolutions shouldn’t be about creating a ‘new’ you, but rather an ‘improved’ you. In fact, we know exactly how good it feels to make improvements!
Late last year, we did just this by improving on what was already great about TESTO®’s all-natural formula with extra Horny Goat Weed and the addition of Vitamin D3. This year we’re continuing that trend with these resolutions for an ‘improved’ you.
Take your physical, mental, and sexual health back with these 7 achievable resolutions.
1. Check in with your GP
First things first:
Go and see your GP and start your year with a clean slate.
This is one resolution that could be done and dusted in 15 minutes.
For some silly reason, us guys are less likely to visit the doctor than women.
Why? We’re stubborn. There’s no point embarking on a new year with niggly health issues that could be easily resolved. Your “she’ll be right” attitude won’t make it go away. Get a full check-up and get on top of your health.
2. Eat more veggies and less meat
It’s ok, you don’t have to give up meat completely.
Start small by trying a meat-free meal once or twice a week. Get creative in the kitchen and fill your plate with nutrient-rich vegetables, legumes, grains, beans and healthy fats. When it comes to eating meat, remember that a normal portion is about the size of a deck of cards, taking up no more than a quarter of your plate.
3. Learn something new
Learning a new skill makes for excellent mental exercise, boosting your memory and keeping your mind sharp. The silver lining from the pandemic is the abundance of online resources, making it achievable to learn a new skill from the comfort of your home.
Ever wanted to play an instrument? Learn to cook? Perhaps you want to become a chess Grandmaster? There are so many amazing skills to learn and it’s all there online, just waiting for you to tap into.
4. Create an easy exercise plan
“Getting fit” has never been an effective resolution.
What you need is a plan. Better yet, a plan you can stick to.
If you gained a few in 2020, you’re not alone, but it’s important to maintain a healthy weight to keep your mental, physical, and sexual health in check.
Set aside half an hour a day. Before work, after dinner, during lunch – whatever works! This way, you’ll always have the time to get your body moving. Walk, run, stretch, star jump – it doesn’t matter what you do, as long as you do something.
After last year’s debacle, many of us learned how to stay active in small spaces. Look, we don’t want another lockdown, but it’s good to be prepared just in case. As long as you have your half-hour set aside, you can fill it with any kind of exercise!
5. Spend more time outdoors
While our country is no stranger to sunshine, we’re still not getting enough vitamin D.
Vitamin D deficiency is directly linked to many health concerns such, particularly in cardiovascular and reproductive health. It’s strange to think that many Kiwi men suffer from a lack of vitamin D, but it’s true.
If improving our mental, physical, and sexual health is as easy as upping your vitamin D intake, wouldn’t you do it? It’s time to support your body with a supplement rich in vitamin D, or start getting outside more often. Or both!
6. Set daily positive affirmations
2020 was a year that left many of us reeling in negativity. Creating a positive mindset comes from within, but it’s one of the best things you can do for your mental health. Daily affirmations are a great way to combat negative thoughts and build confidence.
Write five positive affirmations and stick them to your mirror. Use the words “I am”, keep them specific, and practice them twice a day for at least five minutes. Slowly but surely, your affirmations will help release you from fear and change negative thinking patterns.
7. Reignite the flame in the bedroom
After a stressful 12 months, many relationships are in need of some work.
Like most things in life, the more effort you put into your relationship, the better it will be. And we can’t overlook the importance of a healthy sexual connection. That’s why it’s time to reignite the flame. It’ll do wonders for you and your relationship.
If the lull has caused you to lose confidence or you need a little help ‘getting going’, TESTO® will help set things straight. Our potent formula provides long-term support for combating erectile dysfunction and getting the bedroom flame burning again.
Improve on what’s great already in 2021
A new year is the perfect time to take stock of the previous 12 months and see where you could improve. With these resolutions, you’re not starting from scratch, you’re simply making small, achievable adjustments to create a happier, healthier you.
