Take Care of Yourself. You Deserve it!

A healthier lifestyle doesn’t have to be a chore.  Instead of attempting to conquer your health goals all at once, what if you started by setting smaller, more manageable goals?  Here are a few tips to get you started:

  1. Eat Better:  Start simply by adding an extra portion of a fruit or veggie to one meal each day.  It will eventually become a daily habit.
  2. Sleep More:   Getting a good nice sleep can have a positive impact on your life, your mental wellness and in turn your physical health, improving your well-being all around.  Aim for 7-8 hours of sleep per night.
  3. Drink Water: The easiest change of all, drink more water.  Women should take in about 11.5 cups daily and men 15.5 cups.  Your body needs plenty of water to keep you hydrated and it will also keep you feeling fuller longer.
  4. Move Often:  Don’t have time for a trip the gym daily? Start with simple activities that can be done right from your home or office.  Take short walk breaks throughout the day.  Use the stairs instead of the elevator. Keep a pair of hand weights on hand for some quick strength conditioning.

Making simple changes along the way can lead to great health benefits down the road and overall a healthier life!
