Habit 1) Get 10,000 steps a day or more if you can.
Habit 2) Get 6-8 hours of sleep a day. The exact amount will depend on your age! Do some research on how much sleep you should get for your age.
Habit 3) Eat 2 servings of fruit every day. If you don’t like eating whole fruit try making smoothies.
Habit 4) Do at least 15 minutes of yoga when you wake up in the morning.
Habit 5) Get 30 minutes a day of fresh air. Either walks or just sitting outside.
Habit 6) Drink lots of water! The general rule of thumb is to aim for 15.5 cups of water for men and 11.5 for women.
Habit 7) Pack your lunch for work. Grabbing food or skipping lunch are both generally less healthy than packing your own lunch.
Habit 8) Disconnect from your phone for at least an hour every day.
Habit 9) Create a healthy and productive morning routine.
Habit 10) Work on maintaining /forming good posture.
Habit 11) Start taking strategic breaks throughout your work day for your mental and physical health.
Habit 12) Eat 3 servings of veggies a day. Try experimenting with veggies you don’t eat often or have never tried to keep up some variety in your life.
Habit 13) Make a plan to exercise 5 times a week. Create the plan for those workouts at the beginning of every week.
Habit 14) Start reciting positive affirmations every day. Try to spend 5 minutes doing this at the beginning and end of every day.
Habit 15) Stretch your body every night before going to bed. Even if it is just 5-15 minutes it can make a big difference to stretch every night.
Habit 16) Do your skincare routine every morning and night.
Habit 17) Measure weight/fitness progress by measuring inches and fitness goals not the scale. Scales can be inaccurate tools to measure your healthiness.
Habit 18) Wear sunscreen daily! Try getting a moisturizer with SPF in it to make this easier.
Habit 19) Learn to regularly cook healthy meals at home. Bonus this will help save you money as well.
Habit 20) Find the right vitamins for you and take them daily.
Habit 21) Go to annual doctor appointments including the dentist!
Habit 22) Floss every night. If you have a hard time trying to create this habit try getting floss picks.
Habit 23) No screen time for the 45 minutes before you go to bed.
Habit 24) Start meal prepping! Not only does meal prepping help you keep on track with eating healthier but it also saves money and decreases food waste.
Habit 25) Change up your workouts. Doing the same workouts every week will not only get boring and hurt your motivation but your body also gets adjusted to those workouts so you should shake it up and work different muscles!
Creating a healthy lifestyle is a life long process that you can always be improving on. Start on the journey by implementing these 25 habits for a healthier life.
Also, I want to remind everyone that living a healthy life is more than just exercising and eating veggies. It is also putting constant effort into your mental health, caring for yourself, and loving yourself. Always prioritize your mental health and happiness!
