Nine Simple New Year’s Tips to Optimize Your Health

Emerald Labs New Year Tips

The year 2021 has ended, leaving many of us thinking about ways we can improve in 2022. New year resolutions are different for everyone (which is what makes setting them so exciting). They give us the feeling of a fresh start – a do-over you could say, to become the best version of ourselves in the coming year. 

Although these particular things may not be at the top of your resolution checklist, these nine tips can help boost your health – giving you the stamina and focus to continue checking off the “bigger” items on your list.

1. Develop Good Sleeping Habits

According to the American Sleep Apnea Association, 50 to 70 million Americans of all ages are affected by sleep-related problems. The ability to function properly during the day depends on the quality of your sleep and how much of each sleep cycle you’re getting.

Lack of sleep can also influence your health like boosting food cravings, increasing the risk for heart disease, and a lowered immunity making the body more susceptible to illness. To improve sleep, try our doctor-formulated Sleep Health.*†

2. Move More Often

Can walking really be that beneficial? Surprisingly yes, it can! Studies show that walking regularly can help maintain a healthy weight, support optimal heart and cardiovascular function, and even boost energy levels.*†

3. Practice Deep Breathing

It sounds crazy, but breathing provides many benefits to the body that aren’t widely known. Taking deep breaths actually can increase endorphins (the “feel good” chemical), help to alleviate pain, and surprisingly acts as a detoxifier. 70% of the body’s toxins are released through the breath, so make it a point to breath with more intention – you’re body may thank you for it.*†

4. Stay Hydrated

Keeping your body hydrated doesn’t always mean you have to drink plain water. According to Walter Willett, a professor of epidemiology and nutrition at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, he recommends women drink roughly 11 cups of water per day and 16 for men.

He also says, “​​not all of those cups have to come from plain water; for example, some can come from water flavored with fruit or vegetables (lemons, berries, or orange or cucumber slices), or from coffee or tea.*†

5. Eat More Brain Foods

Want to have better focus and memory? Well, try eating more foods full of brain-friendly nutrients like turmeric and B12. Not only is turmeric a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, it contains something called Curcumin – which has been shown to cross the blood-brain barrier, meaning it can directly enter the brain and benefit the cells.*†

B12 is also important and can help protect against cognitive decline. An Estimated 25% of American Seniors are deficient in B12, so be sure to stock up to stay sharp in 2022.*†

6. Boost Energy Levels

Having lasting energy to get through the day without turning to stimulants or sugary energy drinks would be wonderful – but is it possible? You bet.

Our bodies produce something called ubiquinone (commonly known as CoQ10) which stimulates the cell’s powerhouse to produce more energy from ATP. In other words, it helps the body use food more efficiently for energy. Switch on your body’s natural energy source and try our CoQ10 today!

7. Protect Your Skin

Collagen is one of the building blocks of our skin and is the most abundant protein in our body. Although there are many benefits to consuming collagen, one of it’s top functions is providing elasticity to our skin which helps to keep it looking smooth longer. Vitamin C makes a great addition with any collagen supplement as it helps improve absorbency.*†

8. Take Enough Vitamin D

The “sunshine” vitamin is produced naturally by the body when, you guessed it, you are exposed to sunlight. It’s mainly responsible for things like calcium absorption and helping our bodies maintain regular immune function. But there are some extra benefits to taking vitamin D that may surprise you.*†

It also may help fight diseases like MS, may reduce the risk of heart disease, may help regulate mood and ward off depression, and one study revealed that vitamin D has an appetite-suppressing effect which may contribute to natural weight loss.*†
