Milk Life and Be Your Best You
Don’t Waste An Ounce Of Your Potential With These 5 Tips
Warmer temperatures bring a sense of renewal – the perfect time for self-evaluation and reflection. Did you set goals at the beginning of the new year? Most people aim to get the most out of themselves and out of life, but don’t know the steps to take to get there.
Becoming your best you doesn’t happen overnight – rather, it requires daily effort. The key is taking advantage of every single day as an opportunity to move yourself closer to your goals. Tackling small, attainable goals each day can provide the kick-start you need to push your limits and pursue bigger challenges.
Consider practicing mindfulness as a way to help hit your goals. Mindfulness, one of this year’s hottest wellness trends, encourages finding calm in the chaos. The meditative practice has its roots in Buddhism and encourages you to focus on the task at hand, rather than on anxieties of the past or in the future.
Practicing mindfulness is one of many tools you can milk life to unleash your full potential. Combined with the tips and tricks below and armed with 8 grams ounces of milk’s protein in every 8-oz. glass of milk, you‘ll be one step closer to milking the most of every moment of your day.
1. Start with breakfast: Kick-start your morning by eating a wholesome morning meal. Getting enough protein at breakfast (many nutritionists now recommend 25 to 30 grams at every meal) can help keep you fuller longer. And, milk’s 8 grams of protein in every glass can help power your morning.
2. Make a daily action plan: Worried you’re forgetting something? Make a list of your daily tasks and be as specific as possible. Check them off as you go and watch your anxiety melt away. Paper and pen not your style? Use an app like Wunderlist to create and track your to-do lists, errands and send reminders.
3. Meal planning: Preparing meals ahead of time can alleviate unnecessary stress. Try making and freezing favorites like breakfast sandwiches or mini breakfast casseroles for easy grab-and-go meals.
4. Tell friends and family: Achieving your goals doesn’t have to be a solitary endeavor. Relying on a support system is a great way to be held accountable and keep on track.
