A new year, a new way of thinking – that’s the core intention behind the New Year’s Resolution. It’s a personal commitment to enact some positive change in your life, saying goodbye to old patterns and embracing a new challenge. Statistics show that targeting self-improvement through healthier eating, getting fit and saying goodbye to habits like smoking that negatively affect health annually top the list of New Year’s resolutions. The fact is, healthy living is within your reach if you just take steps in the right direction. At the Canadian Wildlife Federation, we recommend one simple step: we want you to get outdoors. Step outside. Breathe in the air. Feel the cool breeze. Take a walk. Ski. Skate. Explore nature. There are lots of ways to enjoy our wild spaces when temperatures drop below zero. Experience the wonders of Canada in the winter time as you start your journey to better health. Let Mother Nature be the encouraging voice to help you stick to your resolution. Below are some other inspiring tips.
