four habits to pick up in 2021

It’s no secret that coronavirus has completely changed life as we know it. What makes it worse is we have no clue how things will pan out in the future. After a year of uncertainty and stress, there’s no better time than now to create some resolutions to take into 2021. If you’re at the stage where you’re sick of eating the same old recipes you’ve been using for years, there are different habits you can start picking up just now to ensure that you stay healthy and happy throughout the new year. If you can’t control what’s happening around you, make good use of what you can control and focus on yourself. There are many habits to choose from, but if you want some food and drink-related habits for 2021, keep reading.

Invest in kitchen equipment
One great habit could be to stop spending money on the items that sit in the cupboard and get dusty and instead, invest in the items that are more useful. Different kitchen appliances can not only be fun to use, but they can also save you dreaded cooking time and money if they’re energy efficient. Investing in more modern appliances is a fantastic way to ditch the old and in with the new, ready for a fresh new year. Make the habit of choosing the right products and leave buying pointless kitchen equipment in 2020.

Detox with speciality tea
Speciality tea does not include weight-loss aids. Tea – especially loose-leaf tea – has plenty of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties which helps maintain your health and wellbeing. Infusing your water (either hot and cold) with the many different flavours of tea will also aid your digestion and help you fight off infection. Detoxing your system with a range of herbal teas should be on your habits list for 2021. If COVID-19 still means that all your local non-essential shops are still closed, check out this tea shop online for all your detox and comfort needs.

Keep a food journal
Journaling in general is fabulous for your mental wellbeing. Why not make the benefits two-fold and keep a food journal? By doing this, you’re benefitting both your mental and physical wellbeing. Some advantages of maintaining a food journal can include keeping note of what you eat which can help with any stomach and digestive issues, it helps visualise what you are eating and also allows you to keep track of your recipes for future use. 

Meal prep
Planning your meals each week is a great habit to pick up in the first few months of the year. Not only will you save loads of time to focus on other things, but you’ll save money, lower your stress levels, and allow yourself to create a better relationship with food.
Make your new year work for you and invest in some habits you could keep forever!
