Four Baby Steps That Will Transform You Into A Healthier Version Of You
With warmer temperatures here to stay and summer right around the corner, it’s safe to say that feeling like the healthiest version of you is a top priority for a lot of us. The thought of taking on an entire health and fitness routine can be overwhelming, so start small. By implementing a few new habits at a time, the switch to living a healthier lifestyle will feel less intimidating. With these four baby steps, we guarantee you will feel yourself transform into a healthier version of you. Get ready for it!
Get Outside & Walk
Maybe it’s just for ten minutes, or maybe it’s for an hour, getting outside for a walk will help improve your overall well being in many different ways. Not only are you getting your legs moving a bit, but the fresh air will also leave you feeling refreshed and ready to conquer the rest of your day. If you aren’t an avid exerciser to begin with, walking is a good way to ease into a consistent workout routine. With the warmer temperatures here to stay, there really is no excuse to skip a quick walk each day!
Drink Plenty of H20
Getting enough water each day is critical – several bodily functions depend on there being enough water in our systems. Digestion, healthy skin, getting enough oxygen into the body, and body temperature regulation are just a few of the things that depend on our h20 levels. We know it can be hard to drink enough every day, we struggle with it too. We find infusing our water helps make it more enjoyable. Lemon water is an easy go-to, but we also love adding cucumber & mint or strawberry, lemon, and mint into our Pressa Glass Water Bottle for a refreshing treat.
Plan Ahead & Prep
Meal planning and prepping is the best way to ensure that you will make healthy food decisions throughout the week. Planning out what you will have each day, then prepping what you can help prevent last-minute poor food decisions, as you will already have guilt-free choices on hand. We like to make a day of our meal prepping – Sunday morning grocery shopping followed by a day in the kitchen helps us get our minds right for the week. Plus, experimenting with new recipes can be fun! When starting up a new meal prepping routine, we suggest you keep things simple to avoid getting overwhelmed. Once you feel more comfortable prepping for a week at a time, that’s when trying out new things becomes an exciting task.
The 5 Minute Journal
A healthy mindset is just as important to your overall wellness as any workout or healthy meal. Having a positive outlook can help us make healthier decisions in every aspect of our lives. We like to start our day with The Five Minute Journal: A Happier You in 5 Minutes a Day. It is quite simple and very quick – at the beginning of each day, you journal what you are grateful for, what would make the day great, and what your daily affirmations are. At the end of each day, you journal 3 amazing things from the day, and how you could have made the day better. By focusing on the good in your life, each day will feel lighter and more enjoyable, allowing you to be the best version of you.
