Beyond Weight Loss: Healthy New Year Resolutions

healthy resolutions

More often than not, January resolutions fade into February guilt. The reason is pretty simple: we take on too much, too quickly. We put a lot of thought into the ‘what’ and almost no thought into the ‘how’. Two of the most common (and most failed) resolutions are to lose weight and to exercise more. While those resolutions are certainly worthy of the effort, they aren’t always easily achieved. Without breaking them into specific and measurable goals, it can become overwhelming to try to tackle them. My favorite tip when it comes to achieving your resolutions is to start small. Here are a few ideas to help you choose a healthier resolution this year.

Start Healthy Habits:

Seemingly simple changes really can turn into something great. For many people, starting a daily habit is just the thing they need to get the ball rolling toward their goal. Taking a walk after dinner, ordering water instead of soda, and packing a healthy lunch each day are a few good options.

Break it Down:

It will be much easier to stay on track if you break your goal down into manageable chunks. Instead of saying you’ll work out more often next year, choose a weekly workout goal and start tracking. If your goal is to clean up your eating, try to add a few new vegetables to your grocery cart each week to cook at home.

Focus on More:

When it comes to resolutions, it’s common to hear negative terms like “lose”, “quit”, or “stop”. Next year, why not try to focus on what you can add to your life? Goals like drinking more water, taking more time for yourself, walking more each day, or eating more whole foods are always a good idea.

Record the Highs:

Don’t forget to celebrate all the work you’re putting in next year. Whether you record your top three moments of each day or reflect each week on the progress you’ve made, make a goal to stay positive. Don’t just look at how much further you have to go – look at how far you’ve already come!

Pay it Forward:

There is no rule that says you need to choose a resolution, but paying it forward is always an awesome idea. Whether you want to become a mentor, volunteer at a soup kitchen, or help feed local strays, there are more than enough opportunities out there. Pick an activity and how often you’d like to do it, and go make it happen.

A note from our CEO about COVID-19x

The coronavirus has changed life, as we knew it, forever. Most people will be touched in some way by the pandemic either physically, emotionally or financially. We’ve all heard heart-breaking stories from around the world about lives that have been lost and severe financial hardships caused by the sudden shutdown of so many businesses.

On behalf of all our team members around the globe, we extend our deepest sympathies to all that are struggling through personal challenges, whatever they may be, and we offer our sincerest gratitude to all the heroes who are helping those in need.

We’d also like to add how important it is for everyone to continue to do their part to slow the spread. Physical distancing is critical, and we must all take this seriously. We use the word “physical” because staying away from people in a physical way does not mean we should be neglecting the importance of social interactions, compassion and patience.

We are one of the largest providers of shelf-stable seafood and it is our honor and our responsibility to do our part, in every way we can, to help to keep people fed with affordable, nutritious protein. To that end, we’re continuing to run our factories in the US and Canada while our partners around the world continue to provide supply.

We take great pride in being a “people-first” company, so our decision to continue operations is done with utmost concern for the people making it possible. We’ve enhanced our safety measures to meet or exceed CDC guidelines and we have increased wages in our factories to assist employees dealing with the incremental costs of working and new, unexpected demands on their households.

We also take great pride in producing healthy, nutritious and safe products for our customers. Please know the manufacturing practices we follow year-round protect our both employees and the products they produce. Our facilities have very few people-to-product interactions, all products are sterilized in a high temperature oven and then packaged in highly automated production lines.

Beyond Bumble Bee, we’re continually looking for ways to extend our “people first” approach to make a meaningful impact. With so many people in need, we know this effort is more important than ever. We’re starting by donating more than $1 million in product to food banks in both the US and in Canada. And we will be looking for more opportunities to make a positive difference in the days to come.

Finally, I want to thank you, our loyal and new customers, for your support. We hope you find the recipes on our website helpful and easy to prepare. I also want to send a sincere thank you to our Bumble Bee Team and our valued supply partners around the world for their tireless efforts, particularly those working in sales, manufacturing, distribution and all our support roles, ensuring we can keep store and pantry shelves stocked.

Please continue to do your part to keep yourselves and your families safe during this truly unprecedented time.

With Gratitude,
Jan
CEO, Bumble Bee Seafoods
