If you’re like most people, you’ve resolved to be healthier this year. But here we are already in the month of June - have you made any progress? Like most things, getting healthier and staying motivated to be your best self is way easier said than done.
So today, I’ve put together my tried and true top health tips to get you looking and feeling your best this summer. Check them out now!
1) Drink Water!
It's so simple, and yet so many people overlook the importance of staying hydrated. A couple of little tricks to help you do this is to add electrolytes (something I do all the time) or even a nice squeeze of fresh lemon to your water. Try to stay away from soda and flavored, sugary drinks, which can actually dehydrate you.
Remember: You're meant to drink 8 glasses of water a day, so drink up : )
2) Take Vitamins!
I take vitamins daily that help boost my immune system. It's important to find vitamins that are right for you - so I encourage you to take some time to find what kind of supplements are best for your particular body type. Sticking to a vitamin routine can be tricky, so I recommend prioritizing it as a daily habit. Put them at your desk at work. Keep them in your bathroom drawer. Have them in a place that you can easily grab them and go about your day.
Go on a brisk walk, take a fitness class or meet with a personal trainer. Exercising can be much easier if you have an accountability partner to work out with. Even simple things like walking or biking instead of driving somewhere can help improve your health. Or you can choose to take the stairs instead of the elevator. Every little bit counts :)
4) Think & Be Positive!
Just like water, your thoughts and attitude are often overlooked. It's important to have a positive attitude towards yourself, health, body image and honestly, everything. Having a good attitude will raise your vibration, which in turn will naturally motivate you to WANT to do the things above.
In addition, it'll attract positive people and resources to you. One of my favorite quotes from The Secret star, Mike Dooley, is this: "Thoughts become things." I love it because I think it's so true! If you think thoughts like "I enjoy going on my daily walk," instead of "I hate walking," then you'll enjoy and look forward to your walk (or whatever type of exercise you do). And who knows, the Universe just might reward you for being so upbeat!
I challenge you to accomplish 1, if not all 4 of these things today. Go for it! You can do it. :)
And before I go, if you feel like you’ve tried everything to get healthy this year, you just have to take my short quiz.
In less than a minute, you’ll discover what’s really blocking you from living your healthiest, happiest life. Pretty neat, huh?
