Wanting a healthier lifestyle? Where to begin?
Finding the right place to start living a healthier lifestyle can be a challenge for many. We might strive to live a healthier lifestyle, but getting the courage and mind-set ready to start is often what holds us back.
Eating right, exercising regularly and still finding enough time for family, friends and our own individual needs can seem like overwhelming goals. That’s why it is always recommended not to attempt to achieve and conquer everything all at once, but to start with baby steps and setting some realistic and manageable goals. Small changes you make today, can lead to some terrific health benefits further down the road.
So what are you waiting for?
Start your new journey to improved health by making ‘One Simple Change’.
More fuel for your busy life!
Fruit and vegetables provide your body with important phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals. Ideally, they should be consumed every day. Your health will benefit, and you will feel more comfortable in your skin.
Experts recommend five servings of fruits and vegetables a day. To be honest, that is not always easy to achieve.
You can start improving your diet by replacing empty calories with full-value choices. A balanced nutrition includes fruits, vegetables and whole grains – foods that are as close to their natural form as possible. It won’t be long before you realise just how good your body responds and feels about ‘whole foods’. And before you know it, because our bodies crave lots of what we put in, your cravings will change from less healthy fat or sugar laden meals to healthful nutrition! Start to read food labels. Think about where your nutrition is coming from. Think about how much it has been processed. And if you are short of time and not managing to eat the recommended daily amount of fruits and vegetables, helps is at hand. Juice Plus+ bridges the gap by supplementing your diet with the most important active ingredients in fruits and vegetables. High quality, organically grown whole fruits and vegetables fresh from the fields in the form of a capsule. Easy, affordable and convenient.
Another easy change you can make is to start monitoring your fluid intake. Did you know that we don’t function at full capacity when we are dehydrated? The institute of Medicine recommends adults to have about 13 cups = 3L (men) / 9 cups = 2.2L (women) of water per day? Get yourself a good sports bottle and keep track of how what it holds and how many times you refill it throughout each day. Remember, food provides about 20% of water intake as well and many fruits and vegetables are more than 90% in water by weight. Increasing your water intake in this way will soon have you functioning better in no time!
Exercise might be a tough one and is often the biggest challenge for people to overcome. With so many demands fighting for your attention every day, it may be a challenge to find time for an hour trip to the gym. So, start with simple activities you can incorporate into your daily routine. Take the stairs not a lift if you work in an office block or deliberately leave things you need for the day upstairs so you have to go up and down them more frequently at home before you leave for work. Most people look at exercise as a means to burn energy and manage their weight. Instead, think of exercise as a great way to gain energy and stimulate your body and mind. Try waking up an hour earlier once a week and putting in some exercise whilst the rest of the household still sleeps. One simple change can make a big difference in how you look and feel.
Sleep More, Stress Less
When was the last time you felt you had great, quality sleep on a regular basis? Getting a good night’s sleep can greatly impact your outlook on life and, in turn, your health and wellness. Find yourself drifting off in front of the telly then waking up and realise you’ve missed the programme you sat down to watch? Simple changes, such as getting a good night’s sleep or taking time for a relaxing hobby, are easy ways to help manage stress and improve your well-being in the long-term. Turn off all things digital at least an hour before you go to bed. This will give your mind chance to wind down and relax. Take a long, luxurious bubble bath or fill a hot water bottle and make your bed nice and warm to climb into. Empty your head by making notes in a notebook so that you do not have things praying on your mind whilst you try to sleep. Once you start going to bed earlier, your body will adjust, come to expect it and you should find you are rewarded with more vitality, less stress and better focus as time goes by.
