Social media, digital devices, work, socializing, fast-food are things that take away a large chunk of our everyday life. While we keep reading a lot of articles on healthy living and overall wellness online, little do these articles transform into a practice that we inculcate into our daily lives.
We see the article, we want inspiration, we read, we feel motivated and then?
Then we close the window and keep scrolling.
You could relate, right?
We’re with you on this.
While we agree that it has never been more difficult to stay healthy and active, we have to agree that with the plethora of options we have at our disposal now, it has never been more easy to move into an active lifestyle either.
To make it simpler for you, we have put together 5 easy-peasy tips that will have you feeling your healthiest best at all times.
Kick your bad habits!
Well, some of them atleast.
Be it alcohol intake, smoking or other unhealthy addictions – there’s no way any of these can be done in an healthy way. So essentially, you got to call ‘quits’! It might take some time, but it’s worth it if you want to lead a healthy lifestyle. On the other hand, other habits such as too much sugar, caffeine or junk food intake need to be kept a check on.
Here, moderation is the word.
As long as your overall lifestyle is healthy and mindful, a couple of cheat days in a month can be overlooked.
Get your check-ups done
Warning signs can sometimes be as little as an itch or some kind of small, but constant uneasiness. While your busy lifestyle might not allow you to pay too much attention to these signs, it’s important to get regular health check-ups done. And even if you are healthy, health check-ups are important, so that if and when something is abnormal, you know about it and can take action, in conjunction with your doctor.

Get 8 hours of sleep
Did you know that given how amazing your body is, its at work even while you sleep. An 8 hour sleep each day gives the body enough time to heal, repair and rejuvenate. On the flipside, lack of sleep can make your metabolism sluggish, decreases concentration and affect your mood adversely.
You know what to do, guys!
You did not want to see this, we know.
But, you must.
Exercising can be as simple as going out for a 30 minute brisk walk each day. It’s easy, it’s free and once you start, you’ll know it’s therapeutic too! Keeping your body active increases muscle flexibility, reduces risk of injury and greatly strengthens overall strengthen. What’s not to love?

If you cannot eat your greens, then find a way to drink them.
A banana kale smoothie every morning should do the trick, we reckon.
Get as many fresh fruits, vegetables,and whole grains into your diet as possible and make them the main part of your overall diet. Not to forget, lean sources of protein such as poultry, fish, tofu and beans.
The key here is to eat balanced meals and not overeat.
Making all of these changes all at once might put you at a risk of relapsing into old habits. We suggest going a little slow on yourself while exercising moderation and having the end goal of leading a healthy lifestyle in your mind.
