Simple Tips to a Happier, Healthier Life

 

Make Small Changes

Even little changes can improve your health, like finding healthy alternatives to your favorite goodies or adding more super foods to your diet.

Eating healthy doesn’t mean food has to taste bad or you can’t enjoy yourself. For example, when baking, use applesauce instead of sugar or when having a BBQ have hummus dip in place of ranch. Also, adding lemon to your diet can do amazing things! Lemon helps decrease inflammation, aids digestion, provides a ton of vitamin C and flushes out toxins; among other things.

 

Set Attainable Goals

Don’t let yourself get discouraged. Set short term goals along with your long term ones. Reaching those goals will give yourself a sense of accomplishment and keep you motivated.

 

Focus on yourself

With social media these days its extremely hard not to get wrapped up in what others are doing. That being said, stop comparing yourself to others. One of the best things I heard was that we compare our weaknesses to others’ strengths. Focus on your goals and your progress and you will find yourself a lot happier with the results.

 

Be Resourceful

Use the stairs over the escalator or don’t park in the closest parking spot possible. Look for ways you can burn extra calories in your day-to-day activities.

 

Buddy System

I always have a great time working out with my friends! Take a friend to the gym and sweat, even if it’s only for 15 minutes. Working out releases endorphins and reliefs stress. Adding a workout partner to the mix holds you accountable, but make sure to find someone that’s encouraging and wants to see you succeed.

 

Find Something You Love

Whether it be working out, painting, or volunteering, find something you love and make time for it. Enjoy yourself. At the end of the day life is meant to be lived and to be happy.
