Not only is January a month of celebrating fresh starts and new practices, but it’s also a month that celebrates National Green Juice Day. When it comes to national holidays, most encourage us to dive into a donut or cookies, but this is one we can get behind. Don’t get us wrong, there are times to enjoy those treats, but overall, we want to strive for a healthier, natural diet. However, this is easier said than done. So, to help, we’re sharing 5 small steps you can take to improve your health this year with Evolution Fresh®. They’re juices are not only good-for-you, but delicious too. Therefore, the delicious juices make taking these small steps to a healthier lifestyle even easier.
1. Swap Your Beverages
One of the hardest habits to kick is consuming multiple cups of coffee a day. Yes, we’re tempted to skip over this tip too, because who wants to give up their morning cup of Joe? Instead of cutting it out completely, we’re trying to cut back. (See, we’re on your side!) Simply by starting our morning with a green juice, we are avoiding the constant intake of caffeine. We love how refreshed and rejuvenated we feel after an Evolution Fresh juice. You could say we are trying to sip in a brighter direction.
If you’re an avid Starbucks customer, it’s an easy swap as these yummy cold-pressed juices are available at your local Starbucks. They are also available near you at grocery stores.
2. Hydrate (A lot)
Like we said above, swapping your morning latte for a green juice, like Super Green®, is not only more nutritional but it’s also more hydrating. But don’t stop there! One of the easiest (and least expensive) changes you can make is consuming more water. Our goal is 3 Liters a day. Won’t you join us?
3. Catch Some Zzz’s
Use this as an excuse to sleep in a little bit ;). Sleep is SO important for all aspects of your health, but feeling well-rested and ready for the day is one the biggest perks.
4. Hit 10,000 steps
2016 was the year to ‘count your steps’ and that’s a trend we hope continues! If you set a step goal each day or week, you are way more likely to actually get up and walk! Think you need a fitness tracker? Think again! You can accurately track your steps right on your phone. Therefore – no excuses! Take along a Sweet Greens juice for the ride! Hitting the gym? We also love the Power Protein juice. It has 27 grams of protein so it not only keeps us full but also energized for a workout.
5. Set Aside ‘Me’ Time
Once you do wake up in the morning, try and hit pause on all your to-dos. Whether that’s checking your email first thing, or heading for the coffee machine (see #1). Try switching up your usual routine by meditating, journaling, or just sitting still. This not only helps you set goals and intention for each day, but also allows you to engaged instead of just going through the motions. We know this isn’t easy, so maybe start by trying it once a week. We recommend Monday :).
We hope these simple steps help you foresee a brighter and healthier year. Share your #MySmallSip with us on social media so we can follow along and get tips and encouragement from you too!
