Five Steps to a Healthier Life

Hello lovelies,
I wanted to share 5 easy steps that will make your day-to-day life healthier! Whether you are just starting your fitness & health journey or have been going for years. I think these 5 steps/rules will keep you on the right track for life.

You need to drink water.
Most of your body is made up of water which is why it’s so important to stay hydrated. You should be drinking a minimum of 2 liters a day PLUS more for the time you are working out during the day. I also think exchanging any sweet drinks or any other drinks for water during the day will bring you closer to your fitness & health goals. Try to break the habit of drinking sweet drinks with your meals, they are just extra calories. I always say I would rather eat my calories than drink them.

Switch from white to brown carbs will help you on your fitness & health journey. Whether it’s bread, pasta or rice, switching from simple to complex carbs will keep you full for longer and will give your body the necessary fiber for a healthy digestion. Plus it will stop your blood sugar from spiking during the day which means those nasty sweet cravings will become less frequent.

This one is quite simple, Move. Every day. I don’t mean you need to go to the gym every day. Or do a heavy lifting session every day. But just be active. Take a yoga class, go to the gym, walk to the supermarket, or go for a walk with your dog. Just move in one way or another, every day.

Your mind is a powerful tool. Remember? (older blog post on this topic is here) I don’t think there is much more to say. If you don’t think positive, positives things will not come your way.
Where there’s a will, there is a way!

Finally, eat your veggies.
They are filled with vitamins plus they are low in calorie, which means you can eat TONS of them. You can have them in loads of different ways, which means they don’t have to be boring. If you not feel inspired check out an older blog post of mine about how to make your veggies more interesting, HERE.

That is all for today, hope you are having a fabulous day.
Stay active, healthy & happy!
