6 Healthy Easy Habits To Start Making

Here are a few healthy habits you should incorporate into your daily routine.

Drink more water

Your body is about 70% water, and drinking enough of it is vital!

It plays many roles in your body, including maintaining electrolyte balance and blood pressure, lubricating joints, regulating body temperature…

While we all know that it’s important to stay hydrated, doing so can be difficult at times.Carry a refillable bottle with you and keep an eye on how much you’re actually drinking during the day. You can also add flavor to your water to help up your intake.

Get more sleep

Do you sleep a solid seven or eight hours most nights? Many of us don’t. Solid sleep doesn’t just give you more energy, it can also help with healthy eating goals. When you’re short on sleep, it reduces your body’s production of hormones that suppress appetite, which can contribute to weight gain.

Incorporate exercise on purpose into your routine.

Skip the elevator, take the stairs. Walk places instead of automatically getting into your car and drive.

Eat more greens and fiber

Eating your vegetables before a meal is a good strategy for eating more of them, keep you full and improve your overall health.

Find alternatives to your favorite snacks

As convenient and delicious as packed snacks may be, they are made with saturated fat, enriched flour, high-fructose, addictive, and artificial flavors. Opt for mixed nuts, homemade nut balls or protein bars, apple & peanut butter, pop corn, sugar free jello, veggies with hummus, hard boiled eggs, beef jerky, protein mug cake, edamame, sugar free candies.

Stop comparing yourself

If you stop comparing yourself to others, you’re more apt to be happy with who you are. Rather than compare your progress or success to those around you, seek to improve on your own accomplishments.
