Ever have the feeling that you could be doing more to lead a healthier lifestyle? The truth is there is always something we can tweak in order to live our most optimal lives-the problem is we overwhelm ourselves with all of the latest trends coming about that we forget to just take it back to basics.
From drinking more water to getting a good night’s rest, there’s plenty of lifestyle changes you can begin to make a habit of without ever feeling intimidated or discouraged.
There’s a lot in life we can’t control but these easy breezy tips can help guide you to making the changes necessary for living in your healthiest body possible!
It’s no secret that physical activity is essential to living a long, healthy life but that doesn’t necessarily mean you have to go and join Cross Fit (even though it’s totally badass)! If work requires you to sit for the majority of the day, make sure to get up and walk around at least for 5 minutes every hour. As dreadful as a flight of stairs may seem, they’re also a great way to get your steps in for the day plus they help lift the booty and who doesn’t want a nice backside?! The point is just to get up and get moving! A little bit each day goes a long way.
Make Water Your Beverage Of Choice
Drink water…and LOTS of it! Drinking about 64 ounces (8, 8oz. glasses) of H2O per day will boost skin health, increase energy, improve mood, support digestion, maintain blood pressure and even help with weight loss! If water is too “plain” for you then try infusing it with lemon or cucumber to add a fresh kick to it!
Eat Healthy Fats
The good fats you should be including in your diet are: avocado, olive oil, nuts and fatty fish! All of these yummy foods are not only fat burning but they help to make you feel fuller longer, aid with immune system function, give you glowing skin and the best part is they’re super easy to start adding to your daily meals!
Take A Probiotic
Healthy gut=healthy body! To help keep the good bacteria balanced in your digestive system, it’s important to add more of the good stuff that way you can build a healthier gut microbiome to maintain digestive health, improve your immune system and keep your vagina happy!
Read Beauty Labels
So you’ve mastered the art of reading food labels to make sure you’re not consuming any harmful ingredients but have you ever taken into consideration your skin care?! Start looking out for words such as: fragrance, pthalates, parabens, sulfate and formaldehyde-these are all ingredients linked to increased risk of cancer. Instead try going for more natural, organic brands that contain ingredients that sound like food(coconut oil, argan, jojoba,grapeseed). Hyaluronic acid is also an ideal ingredient since it helps to hydrate your skin by pulling moisture from the air into the skin.
Have An Orgasm
AMEN to that! Besides the obvious pleasure you feel after experiencing an orgasm, it also helps to improve sleep, relieve stress, leaves your skin GLOWING, strengthens your immune system and improves brain function! Oh and if you don’t have a partner…no worries guys,you can reap the same health benefits by masturbating!
Get Your ZZZs In
Getting 7–9 hours of sleep every single night is one of the best things you can do for yourself. By getting enough rest each night you’re helping to keep your heart healthy, improving your memory, helping the body to repair itself as well as reducing stress and inflammation. If you find that you’re only getting a few hours of sleep at night then try turning off all technology (yes that includes Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Netflix, etc.) an hour before you plan on going to sleep so you’re able to fall asleep faster. You can also use calming remedies such as drinking lavender tea or taking CBD supplements such as Love Wellness’ Timeout Collection to help relax and calm you.
