If you are looking to live a healthier life but don’t want to make any drastic changes, then look no further. There are simple things to include in your everyday life that won’t throw off your entire routine. From a decision change at the drive-thru to yoga pose a day, these five simple things will lead you to a healthier life one step at a time.
Opt for a Salad
When choosing meals throughout the day, chances are the easier options are the less healthy choices. Hamburgers, fries, chicken nuggets, and shakes are all easy options when you are on the go. Instead of always going for the easy option of fried food, why not opt for a salad? This small change, whether once a week or a few times a week, can make a drastic change in your eating habits and your overall quality of life. One meal change from a number five on the dollar menu to a salad can be a difference of five to eight hundred calories! When added up to your weekly or even daily caloric intake, that is one easy yet major change that will help you live a healthier lifestyle.
Walk It Out
Going on a morning walk or a nighttime stroll through your neighborhood is an easy way to live a healthier lifestyle. Not only is walking good for your physical health, but it can also improve your mental health by stepping outdoors and enjoying what the world has to offer. Whether it is a quick walk around the block or a long hike through the mountains, adding in a few extra steps to your daily and weekly routine will make you look and feel better each and every day. If you are even looking for an easier way to add walking to your daily chores, try parking at a far parking space in the parking lot when you go to the grocery store. Those few extra steps from your car to the store and back will add up.
Five Minute Meditation
Adding a five-minute meditation to your day can help you alleviate stress and reflect on your day. Try meditating at the beginning of your day when you get out of bed or when you are winding down and getting ready to go to sleep. A simple five-minute meditation each day can provide a great number of benefits to your mental health including reducing stress, controlling anxiety, lengthening your attention span, and improving your sleep.
Keep a refillable water bottle with you each day to keep on drinking that H20. Not only is water good for you to keep you hydrated and healthy, but it will also make you feel full. Drinking water throughout the day, especially before each meal, will help you control your hunger, leading to you eating fewer calories.
Strike a Pose
Holding a few yoga poses for 30 seconds to a minute each a day will strengthen your body and mind. The best part about yoga poses is that they are low impact so that you are less likely to strain your muscles or injure your joints. Pick a part of your body to focus on each day and strike a pose that will strengthen it. Plus, yoga is a great way to ease into meditating!
