Small Steps To Healthy Living

Home-cooked dinners every single evening? Definitely don’t have time for that.

An hour of exercise 5-6 days a week? Never gonna happen.

Drop twenty 10kg by summer? Keep dreaming!

We’re too busy and too stressed to change our entire lifestyles in one fell swoop.

Here is the good news. Major changes like that aren’t actually necessary to getting your life on the healthy track.

Focusing on baby steps. Little changes you can incorporate one day at a time. It is not only more doable but also more sustainable for the long term.

We recommend choosing ONE of these tips per 3 days. Make sure it becomes a habit before adding in more.

17 Small tips to a Healthier You:

  • Eat. Skipping meals can leave you feeling so famished that you end up overeating later in the day.

  • Guzzle H20. Drinking water huge benefits like increasing energy to regulating appetite for improving digestion.

  • Overhaul your morning meal. Eating a healthy breakfast is so very important and will help keep you on track the rest of the day.

  • Take the stairs, choose a further parking spot, or walk the perimeter of that big box store to get in extra steps.

  • Eat out of physical hunger. (Avoid emotional or boredom eating!)

  • Get outside. Try to get some fresh air three times a day for at least five minutes at a time. You’ll feel refreshed, more productive, and better equipped to make healthier choices.

  • Keep expectations about your weight realistic.

  • Make small, healthy swaps. Olive oil for butter, plain Greek yogurt for sour cream, fresh fruit for candy, baked foods for fried ones, etc.

  • Commit to exercising for 30-60 minutes a day.

  • Stay on track even on the weekends. Don’t use the fact that it’s Saturday or Sunday as an excuse to make unhealthy choices.

  • Get some extra zzzzzzz’s. Struggle to get in 7-9 hours sleep a night? try going to bed 10 minutes earlier each night for a week and see how you feel.

  • Sit less, stand more!

  • Improve your nutrition knowledge! Do some research and try to get yourself educated on the foods you put into your body.

  • Decompress daily. Spend a few minutes praying, meditating, or taking deep, cleansing breaths.

  • Make the right snack choices.

  • Identify your true motivation. What is it about living a healthier life that’s appealing to you?

  • Refuse to believe you’ve ever “blown it”—because you haven’t!
