Make these simple switches for a happier and healthier year.
Now that we’re in February, many of us have either stuck to our New Year’s resolutions, while others have gone back to their old ways. Whatever the case, there’s still time to make habits for the new year that can improve your health and happiness. Fortunately, being healthy can fit in with any budget and schedule! Check out these simple tips to help you have a healthy and happy 2018.
Get Outside as Much as Possible
Getting outside in any weather has many benefits. Even if it’s just a stroll on your lunch break or first thing in the morning, spend a few minutes to recharge in nature, breathe in fresh air, and increase your heart rate with light exercise. Whether it’s a short walk, a bike ride, or throwing the ball for your dog, you’ll soon feel the benefits of it.
Unplug More Often
It’s no secret that technology is taking over our lives in today’s world. It’s important that we are strict with ourselves and family about how much time we spent on devices. Watching TV or scrolling through your phone at night can hinder sleep and lead to other problems such as headaches. Try to establish a routine where devices aren’t used before bedtime. It’ll help you to sleep better and encourage more family time!
Exercise is essential for our health as it improves our mental and physical wellbeing. Just 20 minutes a day is the daily recommendation which, even with how busy our lives get sometimes, every single one of us can make time! Find a workout that you love to do, whether it’s running in the park, going to the gym, or attending an exercise class, and make it part of your routine. You’ll soon find that you are happier and healthier for it!
