SMALL CHANGES THAT CAN MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE IN YOUR LIFE
Wouldn’t it be great if we had the time to do everything we want and be in the best shape ever? We’re talking about a routine where daily workouts and protein-rich, low-fat meals keep our energy high and where, in spite of a busy work schedule, there’s enough time to wind down with friends and family.
Well, it is possible to have it all, with a few healthy lifestyle changes.
For high energy and a metabolic boost: drink more water!
You’re already 70% water but you need to replenish it every day. Your goal should be 64 ounces. Making sure you drink on schedule will keep you hydrated, raise your metabolism, make you feel less hungry and make your skin glow.
Keep track of how much you’re drinking. Your HidrateSpark smart water bottle will do that for you, so nothing’s left to chance. Every sip counts.
Eat the right stuff
Budget 30 minutes each evening to prepare lunch for your workday. You’ll eat healthier if salads, soups, pack fresh vegetables, fruit, and yogurt are on your menu. Add protein snacks, such as peanut butter, nuts, and hummus.
Coffee and tea are fine in moderation. But don’t forget your water!
Find time to workout
Working out doesn’t have to mean an hour in the weight room or on the treadmill. Those are both great ways to burn calories and get fit, but a hike on a nature trail, a walk around the neighborhood or some stress-relieving yoga can also be rewarding.
Exercise has proven to lower blood pressure, reduce anxiety levels and help you sleep better. Even thirty minutes a day can make a world of difference when you’re out to make healthy lifestyle changes. That’s not a lot of time to set aside, considering most of us are awake for at least 14 hours a day.
When the day is done, you should still have time to relax with the family, kick back with friends or settle in with a book or your favorite TV show. Healthy lifestyle changes shouldn’t make you feel deprived of these things. It’s all about balance.
