5 Quick and Easy tips for a Healthy Lifestyle

Hello Beauties! It’s easy to get caught up in a busy lifestyle and forget to take care of your body and health, but these 5 tips will make it easy for you to get back on track to a healthier lifestyle! *In no particular order 

1. Drink water in the morning.

Right when you wake up, you should drink a glass of cold water. This will help jump-start your metabolism for the rest of the day! But don’t just stop there! Drink at least 8 cups of water a day to keep your skin clear and to flush out any toxins out of your body.

2. Smaller plates

This one seems weird but it is probably one of the most useful and effective tips! Using smaller plates will trick your mind into thinking you’re eating more than you actually are! When we use big plates, we try to fill it up with food because we think we need that much, but in reality your body doesn’t need that much.

3.  Find a hobby

Exercising can be a daunting task to some- especially if it’s done in the gym, so find an active hobby and start making exercise fun! I personally enjoy dancing, so I try to get in 30 minutes of dancing a day. There are tons of classes you can take for different activities. You’re bound to find something you love! Maybe you’ll like zumba, yoga, or maybe swimming? You’ll never know until you try!

4. Get the right amount of sleep

Sleep is very important because it’s your body’s time to rejuvenate and get ready for the next day. Sleep deficiency is actually linked to an increased risk of heart disease,  high blood pressure, diabetes, and stroke. So it’s important to get the right amount of sleep! The average person needs 8-10 hours of sleep to function properly. This will help you improve your focus and provide you with the energy for more effective workouts.

5. Get your juice on!

It can be hard to eat the recommended amount of veggies and fruits in a day for a lot of people. A quick way to get the right servings of vegetables and fruits is to put it in a smoothie/juice. It’s convenient to make and such an easy way to down your greens! A recent fad has been “green juice” and it is packed with the vitamins and minerals your body needs!
