As the New Year rolls in, it can be quite easy to become influenced by the constant talk of dieting and weight loss. 

Society’s Expectations

The start of January often marks the time where we can become consumed by advertisements, influencers, and social media posts about how you can “better yourself” this year. However, it is important now more than ever to consider the impact this can have on your mental health. The fascination with diets and body image in the New Year can often make you feel that you are not good enough, which can affect your wellbeing and self-worth. It is important to remind yourself that you do not have to relinquish yourself to another punishing exercise regimen or doomed diet plan to set goals for this new year. Why not instead, make 2022 the year that you create healthy habits for your body and mind, rather than society’s unrealistic expectations of beauty and health.

Positive Resolutions

This year, why not try to set positive goals that can promote your positive mental health? Rather than setting weight loss goals or restrictive diets, you could instead focus on things that make you feel good in your daily life.

It is important to set realistic goals that you can achieve. This will help to boost your motivation and your self-confidence! Setting positive goals is a wonderful way to measure progress and allow you to feel accomplished in your daily life. This will boost your mood, increase happiness, and build self-worth. What do you hope to achieve in 2022?
