As the song goes, breaking up is hard to do, but we’re making it easier with tips on the top five things to break up with this year. The beginning of the year is a popular time for people to set goals for what they want to achieve. Breaking up with old - whether it’s habits, thoughts, or physical items - will make room for the new and create space for you to reach those goals.
It’s a new year, and while the happy memories of 2021 are welcome to stick around, it’s important to break up with any lingering disappointments or regrets from the last year. Keep your thoughts present and future-focused, and let the past stay in the past.
Leaving the past behind also means looking around at what you can physically let go of. If the tread on your running shoes is wearing thin or your pillow is past its prime, invest in some new gear to support your health and wellness. There are numerous organizations that will happily recycle what you no longer need. For athletic shoes, check with your local sporting goods store, Nike’s Reuse-a-Shoe program, or the non-profit Soles4Souls. For pillows, many pet shelters accept pillows and bedding to care for their animals.
You know the saying that oil & water don’t mix - CBD oil and your body also don’t mix. In simple terms, the CBD is “trapped” in the oil when the human body tries to absorb it, and only 10-20% can make it into your system. The other 80-90% just passes right through. Taking non-oil forms of CBD with more bioavailability will allow you to absorb it and experience its benefits. NextEvo Naturals CBD products are specially formulated to enhance bioavailability, and are clinically proven to absorb four times better than oil-based formulations.
Of course you do need your phone at various points throughout the day, but mini breakups can be beneficial to your wellbeing. Pick an hour to turn your phone off completely once a day (and without cheating by using a tablet or computer!). Notice how often you have the impulse to grab your phone during that hour, and it will be even more clear that taking a mini break each day can help you be more present, and shift your focus to important areas of your life offline.
Like your phone, you obviously need your chair throughout the day. Mini breakups to get up and move can improve your posture and get your blood flowing. Set an alarm mid-day and mid-afternoon to walk for a few minutes, stretch, or just stand up. Even brief periods of getting out of your chair can change the physiology of your body and help prevent the many detrimental effects of too much sitting.
On that note, this is a perfect time for you to step away from the screen and get moving!
