Welcome to 2022! With the hustle and bustle of the holidays behind us, we can now focus on what’s before us: a blank slate. A chance to start anew.
If you’re feeling daunted by that blank slate, you’re not alone. Starting fresh can be exciting, but it can also be overwhelming when you consider the many ways you want your life to improve (and try not to think about all the times you’ve failed at said improvement).
That’s why this year, Unicity is encouraging you to focus on just one goal: feel great. Each person’s journey to feeling great will look a little different, but the destination is the same: feeling better—physically and mentally—than you have in years.
Sound like something you can get behind? Let’s explore how you can accomplish it.
Willpower Is Not Enough
Most feel great journeys start with the basics: diet and exercise. But instead of lecturing you on how you should be doing better in these areas, let’s talk about how you can make it easier on yourself to meet your diet and exercise goals.
Start by repeating to yourself the following: willpower is not enough.
Most of us go into our New Year’s resolutions with good intentions. We don’t plan on failing, even though we know the statistics and are painfully aware of our own history. We might even make good progress on our goals for a while. But eventually, the motivation starts to peter out. Enthusiasm wanes. Life gets in the way. Goals are forgotten or set aside for other things.
Willpower can help us accomplish a lot, but it’s not an infinite energy source. Strength of will isn’t enough to keep us going indefinitely, which is why so many people fail to lose weight, change their eating habits, and exercise regularly.
Bridge the Gap
What we need is something to help us close the gap between where we are and where we want to be.
Enter Unicity’s Feel Great program.
Unicity has created a simple formula that takes willpower out of the equation:
Unimate + Balance + intermittent fasting = feeling great!
The Science Behind Feel Great
Unimate is a highly concentrated yerba mate drink that helps you focus on your goals with an improved mood and heightened mental stamina. It’s a potent source of chlorogenic acids, which help support brain function, endurance, and promote an improved mood. Plus, it’s sugar free, so you know you won’t be headed for a sugar crash later.
Balance is a highly patented blend of fibers, nutrients, and plant compounds that is specifically designed to help your body control the carbohydrates you eat. It slows the rate at which your body processes carbs, which helps keep you fuller for longer.
Intermittent fasting can be done many ways, but we recommend the 16:8 method—fast for 16 hours (usually starting after your last meal of the day and ending around noon the next day) and eat during an eight-hour window each day. For example, eat all your meals between noon and 8 p.m., and then fast until noon the next day. (The timing of your fasts can be adjusted to fit your schedule and lifestyle.) This allows your body to go into a natural fat-burning state instead of relying on a steady supply of glucose for energy.
What This Means for You
This is all a fancy way of saying that you don’t have to rely on an extreme diet or exercise routine to see the results you want. Feel Great makes your good intentions attainable by helping out in a few key ways:
Balance helps keep you feeling fuller for longer, so you don’t feel like you’re starving yourself
Unimate helps keep you focused, energized, and satiated so you actually have the energy to work out and accomplish all the things on your to-do list—plus you can drink it during your fasting periods!
And that’s just the beginning. Whatever you are hoping to accomplish this year, Feel Great is the bridge that can help you get there.
Work Smarter, Not Harder
To be clear, the Feel Great program isn’t a magical solution to all of your problems. You still need to get yourself to the gym and make sure you’re eating your veggies. Working toward your goals will still be, well, work. But it’s work that comes with a much bigger payoff.
By incorporating the Feel Great philosophy into your life, you will get something more than a magical quick fix: a way to support a healthy lifestyle and feel great long term.
Feel Great in 2022—and Beyond
So this year, focus on what you need to do to feel great. For some that could be losing weight, establishing a consistent exercise routine, or eating less sugar. Others might want to focus on getting more sleep or improving their mental health. Maybe this will be the year you take a pottery class or learn a foreign language.
Whatever your plans, make Feel Great a part of your process. With a healthier baseline to keep you going, you’ll be surprised at what you can accomplish.
