A new year is always great motivation to get back on track with good attitudes and new mindsets, but it is also a time where we tend to pick up these crazy health trends that are only sustainable for a week before we realise they are probably not healthy at all. The key is healthy changes that you can actually keep up throughout the whole year and inevitably your life.
Here are some healthy habits to try pick up in 2020…
Drinking water has so many health benefits, helps clear skin and gives you more energy. However, many go water crazy in the new year, but too much of anything can be bad.

Anymore will begin to overwhelm the body, so drink water but make sure not to go overboard with that new year motivation.
