5 healthy habits to implement every day

 Well hello to you my reader chums! Living a healthy lifestyle is something many of us strive for and is easier than you may think. In a world of fitness influencers, it can be overwhelming to know what is the right thing to do or how you should be healthy. However, it's really the simple things in life which can make a significant impact on your health and wellbeing.

5 healthy habits to implement everyday

If you're looking to make some healthy changes, these are the everyday healthy habits to implement.

Do a stretching routine

Whether you have a job where you're on the move or you sit in an office all day, moving your body is essential to care for your physical wellbeing. I know exercising is the most important thing, however, stretching can be a massive benefit too. When it comes to stretching, the routines are endless. I think the best way to stretch is in the morning to wake your body up and then at the end of the day to stretch out any pains which may have formed in your body or to recover your body from the day in general. I love to head over to Youtube and search for stretching routines and see which ones are on offer. Alternatively, for something a little more intense, yoga and pilates can have the same effect.

Drink plenty of water

I probably sound like an overplayed record with this point. However, drinking plenty of water is the key to feeling somewhat better and more proactive during the day. I always find, I get headaches or feel a lot more lethargic when I haven't drank a lot of water, and I notice that's the reason too. They say two litres is recommended and I fully believe that because when I drink less than that, I feel the effects. The best way to drink as much as possible is to invest in a good quality water bottle and have it near you throughout the day. You can also set reminders on your phone to drink if it's something you're not good at.

Get some fresh air

Again, this is a pretty simple point. But fresh air isn't only good for your lungs, it's great for your mental and physical wellbeing. It's not natural for us to spend all our time indoors, we need to get out and appreciate nature. Getting some fresh air doesn't have to be a big deal. It can be a quick ten minutes here and there throughout the day to give yourself a break.

Journal your feelings 

This is something I want to do more of because I find writing incredibly therapeutic. It's one of my favourite things to help me feel calm. Get yourself a pretty journal and pop it by your bedside. Start the day or finish the day to get all your thoughts and feelings out, your to-do list, what you're grateful for and positive things about who you are and your life. It's a positive way to release the stress in your mind and have an outlet for communication.

Listen to your body

Our bodies are powerful things. They protect us and know how we work. Listening to your body can do wonders in living a more positive and healthy life. Whether it's to do with your food habits, if you need to take a break or exercise, our bodies will do things to signal when something is wrong and needs to change.

I hope you enjoyed this. What other habits do you think are useful?
