In a few days, we start a new decade. It seems crazy, right? It’s the time of year that we reflect on the past year and make goals for the new year. If you haven’t yet, it’s not too late to do this. Sit down for about thirty minutes, and think about where you want to be at the end of the year. As you probably know, most people tend to give up on their goals within the first couple of months of the new year, or even worse, they never even start. Don’t let that be you! We want to give you some tips for setting goals and following through with them.
Start with Small Goals
Break down your goal into bite-sized pieces. Set small attainable goals that will bring you to the big goal. Creating new habits isn’t easy, which is why most people don’t follow through with their resolutions. Starting small gives you better odds. Another important tip is to be graceful with yourself. If there’s a day or a week that you fall off the wagon, that’s okay. Get back up and keep going!
Get Healthy in 2020
Eating healthy and exercise is the most common resolution. It’s also the hardest! Starting a healthy lifestyle can be tough. We have built most of our habits for years, so replacing them with new habits is a challenge. It’s important to do an inventory of your current habits and work through ways to break them. We believe in you!
Hydration is Key
Hydration is key to a healthy lifestyle. If you’re a kidney stone former, or experience side-effects from dehydration such as fatigue, muscle cramping, or headaches, it’s essential to fit hydration into your 2020 goals. We know that drinking the right amount of water can be difficult, especially with a busy lifestyle. If it’s difficult for you to drink water throughout the day, we have a whole blog post that gives you tips on making hydration a priority
Optimize Your Water
KSPtabs were developed to give your water a flavorful kick while supporting and protecting your kidneys throughout the day and infusing your body with electrolytes, vitamins, and minerals such as:
- Potassium: Both an electrolyte and a mineral, regulates blood pressure, heart rate, and bodily fluids. It also prevents bloating.
- Citrate: Helps support a normal urinary pH and reduce calcium crystal saturation—the basic building blocks of kidney stones.
- Magnesium: Supports digestion and relieves cramps, aches, & spasms. It improves blood circulation, which keeps uric acid flowing until it can be expelled. It also binds to oxalates in urine, which can cause kidney stones.
- B6: Maintains healthy urine parameters and promotes metabolism. Supports brain function and prevents or reduces symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.
We hope that we got you excited about your 2020 goals! Setting new goals can be daunting, but it can be exciting as well! Go into the new year with a positive attitude and believe in yourself. When you do hard things, it trains your brain to believe that you can do anything.
Have a healthy and hydrated 2020!
