10 Tips to lead a healthy lifestyle

  1. Exercise daily (Morning workouts are best but if you don’t have time for the gym some days then keeping track of your steps will help. Try investing in a fit bit or a pedometer that way you can make sure you are reaching your target of 10,000 steps per day. you can also try investing in a personal trainer)
  2. Get sufficient sleep (Make sure you rest, that way your muscles will recover sooner, get into the routine of sleeping at the same time every day, this eventually will become a habit.)
  3. Eat clean (Meal prep at least one day a week, that way you don’t have the hassle of cooking daily and it will stop you binging on unhealthy foods. Include superfoods.)
  4. Drink 3 liters of water daily, keep hydrated. (invest in a 1 or 2-litre bottle and aim to drink water mostly during the day, that way you won’t be making frequent trips to the toilet when you sleep.)
  5. Cut out Alcohol and Smoking. (I know this is stating the obvious but this would quickly improve your overall health.These days there are lots of ways to try and get help with the right support you need. Talk to your GP)
  6. Let go of the past and stress less. (you cant change the past so move forward and be optimistic)
  7. Be kind to everyone and be grateful. (Smile more and try and appreciate the smaller things in life that we take for granted.)
  8. Love yourself  (read more and learn new things, self-help books are a perfect way to get started)
  9. Get plenty of sunlight (if that’s difficult supplement with Vitamin D)
  10. Be spiritual. ( Praying works wonders)
