The beginning of a new year is always filled with aspirations and optimism. Whether one reflects on how far they have gone for the past year or sees this as a perfect opportunity to reprioritize their lives and set goals for the months to come, January is a beautiful reminder that everyone is once again handed with a clean slate.
This year at Starbucks, it’s time to put yourself first. Discover fresh ideas on how to do simple lifestyle tweaks that will help complement your wellness goals for the year 2020.
Stop skipping breakfast
It’s typical to miss the most important meal of the day most especially if it’s going to be a busy one, but sparing a few minutes to have something to eat can truly make a difference in one’s vitality. The good news is, Starbucks makes it easy to grab something on-the-go, like the Starbucks Turkey Ham, Egg White and Fontina Cheese on Whole Wheat Bread or the Bacon, Egg And Gouda Cheese On Croissant Bun, both of which are savory and packed with protein. For those looking for a lighter option, the Berry Chia Overnight Oats or the Mango Greek Yogurt Parfait may be the best way to go, as both serve as good sources of fiber and whole grains.
Aside from beginning your day with a hearty breakfast, it also pays to snack smart.
The average Filipino doesn’t ingest nearly enough fruits or vegetables, according to a study by professionals. So when afternoon hunger strikes, heading to Starbucks to grab a Fruit Cup or a bag of Go Lite! Chips can be satiating. Taking a second to “snack smart” can not only keep one from getting ravenous, but it can also help save time, calories, and even budget.
Get into an active lifestyle
With a new year comes the opportunity for a fresh start, and the realm of fitness and exercise are no exceptions. Luckily, Starbucks launches the Teavana Wellness Tour in partnership with Plana Forma Philippines. This co-branded class aims to explore wellness through the new lineup of Teavana beverages. Here, participants can win merchandise prizes, enjoy sampling of featured beverages, as well as receive after-session packages — all for starting the year with a positive energy. Plus, Starbucks is giving away free classes for the following dates; January 28 & 30, February 4, 6, 11 & 13. Simply visit the Starbucks Philippines Instagram account to see the mechanics on how to join.
Upon unveiling the 2020 Starbucks Philippines Planners and Travel Organizers, many have been smitten with its Instagram-worthy colors and chic details, but aside from its vibrant looks, it can also be an essential for one to keep things organized and in-record. If you have big goals for this year, the first step to any successful plan is to write it down. Map out your biggest task for the day, and find out what works best for you. Don’t have a planner yet? Fret not because the Starbucks sticker collection continues until January 24. Within this period, customers may collect one sticker for every purchase of any Tall, Grande, or Venti Starbucks handcrafted beverage. The Starbucks Philippines 2020 Planner and Travel Organizer can be redeemed upon the completion of at least 18 stickers, subject to availability.
Take the time to connect
As the New Year rolls, it’s never too late to create authentic human connections, whether it’s within yourself, with a long-time friend, or with someone completely new. Sharing a cup of coffee with new people creates a great change of perspective, giving us a chance to explore fresh paths as well as broader and better opportunities.
