What is a healthy lifestyle? And how do you live one?
Take this time to reflect on what truly matters to you and identify why it is that you want to make this change for yourself.
We have put together 5 tips to help get you started on maintaining your healthy lifestyle.
1. START SLOW
Don’t over complicate things. The process needs to be enjoyable and manageable if you start changing things dramatically it will not be sustainable.
You need to enjoy the journey and ensuring that it fits into your lifestyle.
Sleep is so important and more often than not, we can find ourselves scrolling until the early hours of the morning or binging on a Netflix series and then wondering why we are so tired. Try decreasing your screen time and not using your phone or watching TV two hours before bedtime. Read more and de clutter your bedroom.
As we move into the second year of mainly working from home, it is important that you try and detach yourself from work when you hypothetically clock out.
You need to find your work life balance and do things you enjoy!
Going for a walk, having a cup of coffee outside, taking a bath, bringing the children to the park or whatever it may be, you should always balance and factor in what you find fulfillment in doing.
4. GOAL SETTING
Setting goals and achieving them are a great way to help keep you motivated. These goals don’t need to be extravagant and can be a mix of so many different lifestyle factors
i.e. Financial, fitness, food, personal, family.
Short term goals can be as simple as “getting up and tidying the kitchen” Long term goals could be “saving up for that couch you always wanted”
The ethos behind this is that you feel a huge sense of accomplishment when you complete your tasks and look forward to setting more.
Let’s take a car as an example. Your car will not drive with no fuel.
This is similar to the human body. If you do not fuel it, it will not reach the destination.
Your body requires the right nutrients to prevent fatigue and becoming run down.
Fuel up with your wholesome foods, don’t skip meals, move more and sleep well to replenish what is needed
