Here are our New Year’s Resolutions From Wild Tonic ! What’s your New Year’s resolution? It’s a common refrain at this time of year, and the answers are usually pretty predictable — eat healthier, procrastinate less, take on that big project…
Unfortunately, these well-intentioned resolutions often fall apart mere weeks into the new year. Why’s that? Well, a lot of them are pretty harsh and absolute … AKA unsustainable!
At Wild Tonic, we’ve got a different approach to resolutions — and it doesn’t involve suffering.
Our big idea? Resolve to be kinder to yourself!
Small things can have big ripple effects. So if you start by treating yourself well, it can create a positive change in your life, the lives around you … and who knows how far those good vibes can go?
Here are some goals that we’d like to see more of in the new year:
You probably already know from an anecdotal point of view that laughter is healing. But it’s actually backed by science!
According to research, laughter can reduce long-term anxiety, improve mood, and may even be beneficial for the heart.
What more do you need? Consider this an invitation to connect with family or friends … crack some jokes and some cans of Wild Tonic jun kombucha. Good times to follow!
Enjoy Plenty of Self-Care
Self-care is king! Or queen. Or whatever royalty you choose!
What is self-care exactly, though? It’s different things to different people. For some people, it might involve grounding practices like morning meditation and yoga. For others, it might be taking the time to do healthy meal-prep for the week on Sundays or making time for a bubble bath after a busy workday. Maybe it’s taking a time out to enjoy a few chapters of a novel or TV show while sampling Wild Tonic’s seasonal offering, Chai Pear.
Whatever self-care means to you, make it a priority in 2021. Add it to your to-do list. Remember: investing in yourself makes you better able to invest in others and engage with the world!
Focus on Health and Happiness
At Wild Tonic, we’re not so big on draconian dieting regimens or deprivation. Our approach is far more gentle … and motivated by long-term health and happiness.
Start by making a list of your personal health goals. Rather than focusing on appearance or superficial goals, try to really consider lifestyle changes that might feel good. For example:
- More energy
- Better sleep
- Improved digestion
- Less body tension
- Increased flexibility
From there, instead of making huge lifestyle changes or making a resolution that is unsustainable, focus on small, actionable changes that you can implement.
For instance, if one of your goals is to improve digestion, perhaps you can make an effort to include more prebiotics and probiotics in your diet a few days a week. If your goal is to become more flexible, you could make a commitment to attend an online yoga class two days a week. Don’t go for perfection — focus on slow but steady progress.
Spend Time With Loved Ones
Few people look back on the past and think “I wish I’d worked more” or “I wish I’d spent more time on social media.”
You know where we’re going with this, right?
Making more time for the ones you love — family, friends, even a furry friend — can have lasting feel-good benefits. It brings happiness, connection, and helps give you a sense of grounding and belonging in the world.
Plus, it’s fun! See for yourself how much better life is when you spend more time with the ones you love. So go ahead … make a Zoom date. Arrange for a socially distanced walk. Give your family a call.
Hello 2021: Let’s Have Fun!
With 2021 just around the corner, it’s a perfect time to take stock of your life, consider what to leave behind, and think about the positive changes that could improve your life and increase your happiness in the coming year.
More than anything else, we at Wild Tonic wish you a happy, healthy, and fun year. We’re so pleased to have been part of your life in 2020, and we look forward to more good times in the coming year!
