New Year's Resolutions: LIV Style
January 13th, 2020

Array

It happens every year: January comes and brings a flood of discounted gym memberships and well-intentioned fad diets. Lifestyle changes can be a great way to kick off the new year. But the word ‘resolution’ can also leave us riddled with guilt for the abandoned promises of days gone by. This year, don’t let memories of years past interfere with your goals for the year to come. If there’s a bad habit you’d rather leave in 2019, or a new one you’d love to adopt, now is the perfect time to start. 

According to time management firm FranklinCovey (via the New York Times), one third of all new year’s resolutions are broken before the end of January. Why? Reasons vary based on resolution and individual, but the basic sentiment is the same: unspecific and unachievable goals. For best results, set realistic, quantifiable resolutions. Resolving to eat ‘healthier’ is a nice idea, but what exactly does that look like? Making the commitment to exercise ‘more’ in 2020 sounds great, but means little (especially if your current workout consists of walking to and from your car). 

This year, with some thoughtful planning and reasonable goal-setting, you can make a resolution you’ll actually keep. Read on for the LIV approach to three common new year’s resolutions—so you can ease into the new year like a boss. 

 

1. DRINK. MORE. WATER. 

We know, it sounds basic. But everyone from Twitter to the New York Times has deemed 2020 the year of Maximum Hydration. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: 3 in 4 Americans are dehydrated. You’re probably one of them, which is a shame given that dehydration can lead to headaches, brain fog, bad breath, fatigue, and muscle cramps (just to name a few). We’ve all heard that most people should be drinking around 8 to 10 glasses of water per day. But most people don’t (you included). 

If you’re anything like us, ‘drink more water’ has already graced your new year’s resolution roster at some point or another. And yet, like Twitter, we continually find ourselves vowing to do better next year. Why? Hydration is a particularly pesky beast to tackle. Unless you’re in the habit of perpetual sipping, most people don’t remember to drink water until they’re already thirsty. The problem is that thirst is actually a late-stage indicator of dehydration. 

 

Plan of Action

First thing’s first: don’t wait until you’re thirsty. This year, make hydration a priority—not just when you’re at the gym or in the sweltering heat of August, but every single day. If 8-10 glasses of H20 sounds like a lot, fear not! Hydration Multiplier can hydrate 2-3x faster than water alone, thanks to the breakthrough science of CTT®. Make it a morning ritual: mix one stick of Hydration Multiplier in 16 oz. of water and enjoy on your way to work or school. Voila! The single best way to achieve your 2020 #HydrationGoals.

2. CURB THE COFFEE

Whether you’re a pumpkin spice latte or single-origin pour over, we feel you. Coffee can feel like the answer to every question and the solution to every problem. But for some people, that java jolt can end up causing more harm than good.  Despite our national addiction to coffee, half of all Americans report daily fatigue. The initial boost may feel like it starts your day off right, but the crash is very real. 

 

Plan of Action

So you want to give up coffee? A noble quest, we salute you. However, what may be easy as pie on Monday morning (after a long and restful night’s sleep), can feel damn-near impossible by Friday afternoon. Coffee can cause a spike in energy, followed by a crash. But not all caffeine is created equal. Enter: Energy Multiplier. Each stick contains ~100mg of fast-acting natural caffeine, comparable to 1-2 cups of coffee. The difference? Unlike your average cup of joe, premium Matcha and our green Energy Blend (powered by CTT®) can provide sustained energy throughout the day. Translation: a great-tasting coffee alternative to help you make 2020 the year of your Energy Revolution. 

 

3. GET A GOOD NIGHT’S REST (EVERY NIGHT) 

Early morning. Late night. Repeat. When did clocking a full eight hours become purely aspirational? The term ‘9 to 5’ has become a thing of the past. As work days get longer and technology brings the blue-lit digital world to life in our bedrooms, getting a decent night’s rest is becoming harder than ever. We know the importance of proper sleep—we’ve had it drilled into our heads since childhood—yet 1 in 3 adults don’t get enough sleep. Sadly, this can lead to brain fog, mood swings, poor work performance, and weight gain, among other symptoms. So 2019. 

 

Plan of Action

Want to make 2020 the year of better sleep? Go to bed earlier. If your norm is somewhere between midnight and 2 AM, try for 11. Simply getting into bed earlier is the first step to establishing a better sleep schedule (aim for the same time each night). If you’re still tossing and turning, look no further than Sleep Multiplier, our great-tasting, Non-GMO nighttime drink mix. Sleep Multiplier is powered by the breakthrough science of Cellular Transport Technology (CTT)® to deliver our powerful natural Sleep Blend (Melatonin, L-Theanine, and Valerian root) rapidly into your bloodstream. If better sleep is your 2020 resolution, rest easy knowing Sleep Multiplier can help you eaZzz into sleep faster. 

New year, new you is easier said than done. We know that January’s good intentions can quickly feel like February’s failure. This year, make your resolutions a reality—the path to a successful 2020 is paved with LIV.
