You’re a Healthy Living Novice
Friend, you know taking care of yourself should be a top priority, but sometimes it’s a little difficult drumming up the motivation…
If you want to look and feel your best, but you find yourself slipping back into unhealthy habits like overeating or overdrinking, you’re so not alone!
Luckily, when you decide to make a lasting change, you’ve got everything it takes to reach your goals. All you need is a little push… And that’s what I’m here for!
“If you don’t like something change it;
if you can’t change it, change the way you think about it.”
— Mary Engelbreit
Three tips to help you on your path to a healthy, happy lifestyle…
1. Go for a Walk
Just moving your body with a simple walk is a great way to keep your muscles fired up and metabolism moving. A healthy body loves to be active.
2. Good Sleep Habits
According to a recent study, insomnia is on the rise… And it’s no wonder when you think of our culture’s high stress levels and total reliance on technology. Computer and smartphone screens emit a wavelength of light in the blue spectrum, which signals your body to wake up. When you use your devices within two or three hours of bedtime, your body can’t make the melatonin it needs for a refreshing, rejuvenating sleep…
P.S. Steering clear of caffeinated beverages like coffee and Red Bull will also go a long way in your quest for an eight-hour snooze.
3. Cut Out Highly-Processed Snacks
Maybe you’ve heard this tip a million times, but I’m going to say it again because it truly is that important. Clean those highly-processed snacks out of your cupboard! I’m not just talking about the chocolate bars and marshmallows.
Many supposedly nutritious foods such as pasta, peanut butter, and granola bars are jam-packed with sugar, salt, and chemicals that non-scientists can’t even hope to pronounce.
Find whole-food alternatives to your favorite snacks. I.e. instead of highly-processed fruit leathers, try drying apples, apricots, or whatever suits your fancy with produce straight from the farmer’s market. Even junk foods like potato chips can get a healthy makeover! Don’t be scared to get a bit creative…
