Your health is your wealth.
And it's important now, more than ever, to take care of it.
A lot of us go through recurring mad health kick binges, go overboard, burn out and go back to our usual bad health habits.
Not this time, though. This time you're gonna stick with it.
We want to make it as easy as possible for you to live a healthier and happier life – with these small and simple hacks.
1. Drink more water
Hydration is key to a healthy lifestyle. The body cannot function properly without correct water intake.
It's that important.
Dehydration can cause tiredness and fatigue, headaches, dizziness, weakness and electrolyte imbalance – not good.
2. Walk as much as possible and take the stairs
Is your office on the top floor? Take the stairs.
Walking is proved to reduce the risk of heart disease and high blood pressure, and it also maintains healthy body weight.
We always feel fantastic after a good stroll.
If you work hunched over a computer all day long then stretching is crucial.
It reduces and relieves tension, improves your posture, improves flexibility, promotes blood circulation and tops up your energy levels!
Ever tried yoga? Now is the time. You can find loads of video tutorials online.
4. Get a good night's sleep
Try go to sleep as early as you possibly can, particularly on school nights. And if you can bear it – leave your phone outside the bedroom so you can get some uninterrupted beauty sleep.
Limiting caffeine intake throughout the day and taking the time to relax before bed can also ensure a peaceful night's sleep.
5. Eat more whole foods, fruit and veg
It's no surprise that you'll feel a whole lot better eating 'clean' than eating a whole load of junk food on the daily.
Everything in moderation.
Even try and do it five days a week and give yourself a break on the weekends – not only will you feel so proud of yourself for eating healthily but you'll also feel miles better and less sluggish.
6. Cut out sugar where you can
Do you really need that can of soft drink with your lunch?
The answer is no.
Little things like drinking tea sans sugar, eating Cornflakes instead of Crunchy Nut and drinking water with your dinner cut out a lot of unnecessary sugar from your diet.
7. Eat more fibre
Eating fibre promotes the movement of material through your digestive system and increases stool bulk – sounds dodgy – but is really important.
