13 Simple Life Changes for A Healthier Lifestyle

You exercise regularly and do your best to eat well but is that enough to keep you healthy?

Living a healthy lifestyle is more than just eating vegetables and going to the gym. There are so many tiny changes that you can make to your daily routine that can lead you towards being the healthiest version of yourself!

Add fat to your diet!

No, we don’t mean the kind of fat you get from pizza and fried wings. The fat we are talking about are good fats that you can get from foods like avocados, fatty fish, and olive oil (among other foods as well). Healthy fats like these are vital to a healthy lifestyle and support the function of your immune system and helps maintain a healthy weight (and can help you loose weight).  

Sleep more!

If you don’t already, sleeping between 7 to 9 hours per night is ideal for staying healthy. Lacking sleep doesn’t just contribute to a cranky day of work. Losing sleep can affect you physically and mentally and cause you to experience a variety of health problems including increasing your risk of obesity and other dangerous health issues. So, sleep is good! Even if it means taking a quick nap when you are feeling a little tired!

Read all labels (including the ones on non-food items)!

It is common to read the labels on the foods that you buy but do you read the labels on the other products that you purchase? Like beauty products? This may be a change you want to implement right away! Many people aren’t aware of the chemicals that they are putting in or on their bodies because they aren’t reading labels. Certain chemicals in common household beauty items have been linked to an increased risk of cancer and other health concerns so it is important to look out for these harmful substances. Some of the names to watch out for include phthalates, parabens, coal tar, and formaldehyde.

Be positive!

Research has shown that a positive attitude can contribute to a healthier immune system and can also boost your overall health. So, if you stay positive and believe you can do something then your body will follow those beliefs.

Drink more water!

Swapping out drinks that are filled with sugar and empty calories with water can do big things for your health! Drinking lots of water not only boosts your energy, it also helps flush your body of harmful toxins, helps you lose and maintain a healthy weight, and hydrates your skin for a beautiful glow!

Let some sunshine into your day!

Enjoying a nice walk on a sunny day can help add some Vitamin D to your daily routine which is great for your health. Studies have found that Vitamin D is a powerful health booster and has anti-inflammatory properties. Just remember to be safe in the sun and keep your skin protected.

Have a good laugh!

There is scientific evidence that has shown that laughter can not only improve your mental health but your physical health as well! Some health benefits of laughing include reducing stress, boosting your immune system, and lowering blood pressure!

Split your portions!

Has anyone ever told you that eating more can be better for your health? In this case, it is actually true. Instead of having one or two big meals in a day, try to split your meals to five or six small meals that are spread out throughout the day. Having multiple portions throughout the day can help keep your metabolism running and assist you in maintaining a healthy weight and give you a good boost of energy.

Trade in processed foods for real foods!

Instead of grabbing that donut for a quick snack, reach for an apple, banana, or maybe a handful of nuts. Changing your food choices for even small, quick snacks can do major things for your health. Skipping out on processed foods can do lots of great things for your health!

Add fiber to your diet!

Fiber may not sound that important, but it is actually essential for a healthy lifestyle. Including fiber in your diet can help maintain your bowel health, lower cholesterol, maintain a healthy weight, and control blood sugar levels. Fiber is an extremely important part of a healthy diet and can provide a multitude of health benefits to your entire body.

Cut down on alcohol!

It may be fun to enjoy a drink now and then, but alcohol consumption can contribute to an increased risk of health issues. Removing alcohol, even temporarily, can yield great benefits for your overall wellbeing. Some of the health benefits include having a healthier liver, sleeping better, losing weight, and strengthening your immune system.

Stop smoking!

This may seem like an obvious change, but it is also an important one. According to the American Lung Association, smoking is the leading cause of preventable death in the United States, causing over 438,000 deaths per year. Smoking increases your risk of a stroke, causes bad breath, doubles your heart attack risk, destroys lung tissue, and so much more!

Stay knowledgeable!

This is probably the easiest and most beneficial changes you can make that can contribute to a healthier lifestyle! Knowing your health and being aware of how healthy your body is or isn’t can save your life and keep you ahead of silent killers like liver and heart disease.
