We all want to take steps to better health but struggle to find the time in our busy schedules. Or maybe the changes just seem overwhelming. Well worry no more, here are 10 simple ways to improve health.
- Silence your phone, say what???????? Well at least silence your phone at night. Don’t let calls and texts interrupt a deep sleep.
- Deep clean those dish sponges. Did you know your dish sponge is one of the germiest things in your home. If you still use a dish sponge, nuke them once a week. Simply place them in the dishwasher once a week or microwave them damp on high for 30 seconds.
- Step outside. Fresh air can boost oxygen flow to your brain. Combine this with a brisk walk and you will boost your endorphins and energy level.
- Shout out to Lavender. Incorporate some lavender into your day. Diffuse lavender essential oils, use organic lavender scented soaps and lotions, or light an organic lavender candle. The scent of lavender is relaxing, can help you sleep better, and decreases stress.
- Drink more water. Sounds easy but most people do not drink enough water during the day. Think of water as a nutrient your body needs to replace the large amount of water lost each day. Water is good for your internal organs and your skin. Set a “water goal” and drink up.
- Think veggies. Try and fill half of your plate with veggies or a mix of veggies and fruit. If your steak takes up more than half of your plate, cut the steak in half and add more veges.
- Don’t forget your teeth. Dental health has been linked to premature heart disease. Floss and brush, and make that dental cleaning appointment. Brush twice and floss once a day.
- Eat breakfast, everyone knows it’s the most important meal of the day. It’s the most important meal because there is a strong correlation between eating a balanced breakfast each day and maintaining weight loss.
- Shoulders back!! Good posture affects both your physical and mental health.
- Reduce your screen time. Screen time includes computers, phones and t.v. This will free you up for more interactive, and physical activities or relaxing activities.
