There's something that seems complex and overwhelming about adopting a "healthy lifestyle". I mean it involves your whole life. But my mission is to help women realize that a healthy lifestyle is made up of a bunch of simple habits.
These habits can be adopted one by one, as slow or as fast as you'd like. I bet you already are working on one or two. Here's a list of some simple habits that can help you become a little bit healthier this week.
Just try one and see how you feel.
drink one glass of water before your morning cup of coffee (or diet coke)
go for a 15 minute walk after dinner
try 1 new class at the gym
5 minutes of meditation (even in your car!!) Check out the HeadSpace app for guided meditation
youtube yoga sesh to help you sleep a little better (or energize you in the a.m.)
walk while you watch your kids play sports
always drink water with dinner
try meal prepping 1 item this week
get up and walk 2x per day
invite your co-worker (or child/friend/whoever) for an after lunch walk
or take a walk with your thoughts
try a new-to-you walking or hiking path
pack your lunch 1 extra time this week- a real lunch, not eating off your kids plate
give meal planning a try (or just plan dinners or lunches or snacks)
swap 1 soda for 1 extra cup of water today
put in your headphones and go for a walk, jog, run, bike ride! (i LOVE listening to podcasts while walking)
take your dog for a walk instead of making your kids do it
if you already walk, take a jog!
do a 10 minute HIIT/circuit workout
look at your calendar and pencil in a couple of workouts
