Becoming a healthier version of yourself might seem like a daunting task, but it can be made very easy if you simply take some steps each day to accomplish it. Becoming healthier doesn’t need to be too difficult at all. Let’s take a look at some things you can do:
1. Eat More Vegetables
Vegetables are full of nutrients and vitamins. The great thing about them is that they contain hardly any calories, so you can eat as much as you like! Snack on them when you’re feeling hungry, and have big portions with each meal to make sure you’re getting your 5 a day.
2. Drink More Water
Do you drink enough water? Try to add another half litre on to your intake if you think you might be slacking a little. I bet you’ll look and feel better in no time at all.
3. Walk More
It’s recommended that we all do at least 10,000 steps per day to stay healthy. However, I’d bet we don’t do half as many as that most days. Get a pedometer to see how many steps you do, and you might be shocked into doing more.
4. Find an Exercise or Sport You Enjoy
As well as walking regularly, find something else you enjoy and try to fit it in a couple of times per week. This could be Crossfit, football, tennis – anything you like! You could even try a few different things to keep it interesting.
5. Don’t Buy Junk Food
If you buy junk food, you’ll eat it at a time when you probably really shouldn’t. We all get cravings, but they can get especially bad if you know you have bad foods in the house. Sure, you can have treats; but in moderation. Don’t buy a multipack of chocolate bars and keep them in the fridge ‘just in case’, because you’ll no doubt eat them mindlessly.
6. Take Supplements
Supplements can be a big help when we want to get healthier. You can start by taking a daily multivitamin and something like Nordic Naturals fish oils.
7. Go to Bed Earlier
Sleep is so beneficial to us. It helps our brains to function better, stops us from snacking, and makes us more productive. If you can’t seem to drag yourself out of bed in the morning or don’t feel rested when you get up, try to train yourself to get tired earlier. Wind down by getting rid of all electrics and bright lights an hour before bed, and get some reading done.
8. Think Positive Thoughts
Positive thoughts are the key to being a positive, happy, healthy person. Negative thoughts can creep in from time to time, but you must ignore them and focus on the positive. ‘We attract what we create’, so make sure you’re attracting positivity.
