add our 3 tips to your existing resolutions and you’re on your way to a healthy, happy new year.

1. practice moderation and balance.

anything in excess is unhealthy, even something like exercise. Going to the gym seven days a week is great, but it might seem like a lofty goal as the year progresses. If you want your goals to be sustainable, know your limits and maintain balance. we like adding a little yoga from our friends at salt lake power yoga to our routine for both exercise and some r&r. 

everything in moderation, including moderation

2.  avoid using extremes

when making a resolution, avoid words such as never, no more, quit, stop, eliminate, zero (you get the idea…) because you are essentially setting yourself up for failure. for example “no more sugar” – c’mon now, let’s be realistic. Instead, get real and commit to things like “limit sugar” or “cut down on sugar” and suddenly your goal is much more realistic and obtainable.

3. treat yourself

ohh, you worked out for two hours today? feel free to live a little. if chocolate cake or a night out on the town are calling your name then go for it! and might we suggest, have your cocktails at zest - made with freshly squeezed juice or mamachari kombucha, we have drinks that are actually good for you! think of it as "earning" our cocktails....

pomegranate, grapefruit, carrot orange, orange basil, beet ginger lemon, and our house green juice of the day which includes kale, apple, spinach, swiss chard, yeah we know it sounds weird but its amazing!
