Top 10 ways to live a healthy life.

How can I live a healthy life? I don’t have time. I don’t have money. Here are 10 things that you can do today.

Set realistic goals. Remember to use the acrostic SMART to help you get started. Why not sign up for a 5k?  I also believe it is important to reward yourself for meeting your goals. Even small goals deserve a reward.

Eat clean unprocessed foods. This means eat as close to how your grandparents ate. 

Plan when you are going to workout and what you are going to do….THEN WORKOUT! Don’t do the same thing every day. Change it up. Increase your workout intensity, length of time working out or order you do your workout, or change the weight or speed. It is important to add variation so you do not plateau.

Control your portion size. It is important to watch what you are eating.  Take a look at the nutrition facts on the back of the package. Be aware of what you are putting in your body. 

Drink a lot of water. Take the pee test. The test is conducted by looking at the color and quantity of urine. When the urine is clear and of reasonable volume, you are at a normal water balance. If your urine is dark and not much volume, are are probably not drinking enough water.

Get 7 to 8 hours or sleep a night.

Do one spontaneous fitness activity a day. For example, park in the furthest parking spot at the store. Chase your kids around the park. Take the stairs. Dance to your favorite song.

Divide snacks into plastic bags or containers so you don’t eat the entire bag. Small healthy snacks throughout the day can help reduce hunger and maintain a higher metabolism.

Talk to your Doctor about the changes he/she recommend.

Relax, have fun and don’t stress. Enjoy life!
