The start of a new year is a wonderful time for reflecting on the past 365 days, celebrating your personal victories, and releasing any habits or beliefs that no longer serve you. For many, this process comes in the form of a New Year’s resolution.
Each January, one in three Americans set a goal or resolution to better themselves in the new year. Yet studies show that only a quarter of people remain committed to their resolution one month later, and just 8% achieve their goal by the end of the year.
Experts agree that the best way to ensure success in your New Year’s resolution is by listing the concrete, actionable steps you will take to achieve your goals. The more comprehensive and well-rounded your approach, the better.
Detox teas and wellness teas are the perfect accompaniment to your New Year’s resolution. Comforting and satisfying, these delicious teas can be worked into any self-care ritual or wellness routine to help you remain focused and committed to your goals.
Resolution: Lose Weight
Year after year, this resolution tops the list of the most common New Year’s goals in America. Instead of setting and forgetting your weight loss resolution this year, list out the changes you are willing to make in order to achieve your goal.
For instance, commit to swapping out dessert for a calorie-free chocolate tea, going for a 30-minute walk each day, eliminating snacking, and weekly weigh-ins to track your progress.
If your willpower begins to lose steam a few weeks into the new year, steep a cup of Get Burning® – Herb Tea for Metabolism and let the spicy blend of cinnamon, black pepper, cloves, chili peppers, and cordyceps reignite your internal spark.*
When cravings are at their peak, sip get lost® – No. 6 Herb Tea for Weight Control and savor the intoxicating flavors of carob and cinnamon wrapped around a rooibos base.
Resolution: Get More Sleep
With technology ruling our daily routines and work-life boundaries becoming increasingly blurred, Americans are getting less sleep than ever before. According to the CDC, not getting enough sleep is linked with many chronic diseases and conditions, as well as workplace accidents and motor vehicle crashes.
Improve your sleep hygiene this year by turning off your electronics one hour before bed, and treating yourself to a calming nightly ritual instead. You may enjoy lighting a soothing candle, meditating, journaling, reading, listening to calming music, or sipping a relaxing sleep tea to help you unwind.
As you steep a cup of get some zzz’s™ – No. 5 Herb Tea for Rest, breathe in the aroma of chamomile, passionflower and valerian root, and allow yourself to be lulled into a state of gentle relaxation.*
Resolution: Get Moving
Revamping your exercise routine and moving your body more regularly is a wonderful resolution, even if you do not have a weight loss goal. The Department of Health and Human Services recommends at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity (or 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity) per week in order to reduce your risk of disease.
Start each day with a rejuvenating cup of get charged® – No. 3 Herb Tea for Energy to remind you of your long-term exercise goals and spark your motivation.*
Feeling sore after all that new activity? Steep a soothing cup of get Limber® – Herb Tea for Flexibility, which is packed with anti-inflammatory turmeric, cat’s claw root, ginger and yucca extract.*
Resolution: Reduce Stress
A small amount of stress every now and again is not harmful, but remaining in a prolonged state of stress—as many of us do—can wreak havoc on the body and mind, leading to conditions such as insomnia, anxiety, and depression.
Nurture your spirit in the new year by setting aside more time to unwind and do the things that bring you joy and banish stress. This could include spending time with family and friends or participating in a new or existing hobby.
Depending on your mood, steep a cup of get happy® – No. 13 Tea for Lifting Your Spirits or get relaxed® – No.14 Tea for Relieving Stress, and feel your cares melt away with each sip.* Savor this moment—it is your time to quiet your thoughts and connect with yourself.
We wish all of our Citizens a joyful and prosperous New Year!
