- Take time to breath – every day just take 3 rounds of breath. I personally use these exercises by Dr Weil. http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/ART00521/three-breathing-exercises.html
- Do your food shop online – this way you avoid those impulse purchases.
- Eat together – a family that eats together have a better relationship according to studies.
- Grow something – this doesn’t have to be difficult, carrots in a pot, a herb on the window cill or a hanging basket of strawberries!
- Smile more – you can eat all the good food in the world and exercise every day but if you haven’t smiled what is the point!?
- Eat slowly – your stomach does not have teeth!
- Super food your breakfast – add ingredients you know are good to your breakfast; this could be some blueberries, flaxseed, spinach, nut butter. Cereal is not going to help you on your road to good health!
- Look after your posture – check your desk and chair at work, your car seat or anywhere you spend a lot of time sitting. I’ve just invested in a stand/sit desk and find that working on my computer is better for my back when I am standing.
- Detox your fridge – keep healthy easy to grab items in your fridge!
- Dance every day – your favourite song is probably no more than 3 minutes long, put it on and have a dance.
- Look after yourself first – you cannot help others if you are not in tip top shape yourself!
- Swap your sugary snacks – you know this can only help you in the long term; a piece of fruit with some nuts is a great snack.
- Eat a spoonful of seeds everyday – these contain vital nutrients that will help protect you against all major diseases.
- Drink more water – at least swap one of your tea/coffee drinks to a glass of water.
- Plan your meals – this will make your life so much easier!
- Be accountable – if you want to make changes and stick to them start telling everyone around you what you intend to do.
- Eat from nature not a factory.
- Start small, take little steps and you will feel motivated and goals will be achievable.
- Have fun! Whatever you do make sure you enjoy it.
