Leading what is considered a healthy lifestyle can be difficult at times. Busy schedules can easily compromise any habits that you have established. So how can you better your style of living while juggling work, a social life and your own needs? Over the years I have been able to create a few habits that have helped me stay balanced- and I am going to share these with you all! I guarantee you will look great and feel happier just by making a few small changes.
One of the things that I have found to be the most helpful is to keep an agenda. I input my schedule in a planner- including work shifts, social events and workout times – so that I can stay organized. This has motivated me to stick to my workout routine and now I have a habit of going to the gym at least 4 times a week. You can even write down your meal times and what each will consist of to ensure that you have everything needed to cook.
Taking vitamins and powders can help enhance the wellness routine that you have created for yourself. A recent post of mine, My Four Favorite Skincare Supplements, lists all of the vitamins I take to keep my skin glowing. If you are a beginner, a good option would be to start with multivitamins to establish a habit of taking them once daily. Then, you can keep researching and adding supplements that you think will benefit you the most.
Decreasing your intake of sugar & processed foods will boost your energy, clear up your skin, and help you lose weight. Try to eat whole foods in their most natural state- like vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and healthy fats (like avocados!). When shopping, you can start by avoiding anything that has high-fructose corn syrup, added sugars or artificial colors/ flavorings.
Keep It Natural
For the last few years, I have slowly converted my cleaning and beauty routines to be as natural & eco-friendly as possible. I learned that it is important to monitor what you are putting in your body AND on it. Our skin comes in contact with so many different chemicals and materials that can be absorbed. Help yourself and the environment by purchasing environmentally-friendly products or by making your own. If you need assistance with this, you can check out some of my previous posts:
