Focusing on Our Resolutions - Here's How We're Acing It
Happy 2022! January really is the best month; with the holidays behind us and fresh starts ahead, it’s time to achieve your potential.
We've been thinking (or, uh, Googling) about how to turn our dreams into action, and distilled it to this essence: whatever our resolutions may be, there's ONE fundamental ingredient for success — FOCUS. Focus helps us maintain good habits, develop better awareness of our abilities, and achieve the best results in health, work and everything else we’re setting out to optimize this year.
Here’s how to achieve focus and start improving your life right now.
1. Plan: Make to-do lists.
At the end of the day, there’s nothing more satisfying than seeing your to-do list completed. Even if you have uncompleted tasks, you’ll be ready to tackle it tomorrow. Prioritizing isn’t a must; studies show that focusing on one task at a time boosts cognitive function; and, remember, “done is better than perfect.”
2. Chill: Keep calm & meditate.
A freak-out is your #1 dream-killer. You’ll need calm energy to lift you out of the funk and get things done. Harvard Medical School researchers found that just 5 minutes of meditation a day increases your brain’s gray matter. “Work smarter, not harder,” is the name of the game.
3. Rest: Sleep more!
The solution to brain fog is simple and satisfying: sleep more! Your body recharges and repairs your brain while you sleep, so make sure to get 7 hours minimum each night. Set an alert for bed-time, and hit your phone’s Do Not Disturb mode.
4. Nourish: Eat “brain foods”.
Scientists have found that these foods may increase your brainpower: whole grains, blueberries, blackcurrants, tomatoes, eggs, oily fish, pumpkin seeds, broccoli, nuts and ginseng. Sneak a few of these into your diet to nourish your physical and mental well-being.
5. Sweat: Get some exercise.
Research shows that regular aerobic exercise increases cognitive function, motivation and mood. If jogging, swimming, circuit training or dancing aren’t your thing, a daily 20-minute walk can do wonders, too.
6. Re-charge: Get a boost with Alienergy shots.
The finishing touch for these daily, life-changing habits is a boost with Alienergy shots — our favorite and most delicious way to conquer each day.
This herbal-based formula is specially crafted with nature's super-plants for a natural lift. Infused with functional botanicals including superberries, yerba maté and ginseng, the herbal shot gently boosts your physical and cognitive performance.
It's also powered up with vitamin B6, taurine, and L-theanine amino acid from matcha to nix fatigue, all while being low-calorie, sugar-free and crash-free. Convenient for a daily dose, it’s the easiest way to replenish your focus, relaxation and energy anytime and anywhere, so you can make this year the greatest one yet.
Resolutions are only dreams until we take that first little step. To that, we say "cheers to new beginnings"; now, let's get out there and take the first shot!
