We’d all love to have more “automatic” habits…especially the good ones like drinking plenty of water between meals.
New healthy habits form over time and with lots of practice. The best way to develop healthy habits is to work on one new habit at a time.
Try combining a healthy habit with something you like; exercise during a favorite show, or add protein to your morning coffee for example. Be sure to track progress and reward your efforts.
Get started on these healthy habits today to see better health results in a just a few weeks.
- Start Your Day with Protein: One of the easiest and best habits that you can have is to begin each day with a protein filled breakfast. Try adding UNJURY® Chocolate Splendor to your morning coffee, or blend up a fresh smoothie to start your day. See more recipe ideas here.
- Establish a Sleep Schedule: A sleep routine offers so many benefits to your general health and wellbeing. Set your alarm to wake up at the same time every day. Start your bed time routine about 1 hour before you want to fall asleep. Herbal tea, reading, journaling, meditation, and a warm bath or shower are great ways to get your body ready for sleep.
- Add Extra Steps to Bathroom Breaks: Take the long way to the break room. NEAT (Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis) is an important component of our daily calorie burn. Extra steps and getting up to move around several times throughout your day can contribute to a healthier metabolism.
- Plan Your Meals: Plan 1 day ahead or a whole week ahead. The goal is to avoid last minute decisions about food. We tend to make less healthy mealtime decisions when we are hungry and tired.
