3 Everyday Steps Toward Healthy Living PermalinkWritten by Susan Thanavaro | Wednesday, April 27th, 2016

A Healthier Lifestyle is as Easy as 1-2-3!

Living a healthy lifestyle doesn’t have to be too terribly difficult — the smallest changes can actually make a huge difference in your healthy living quest.

If you’re trying to lead a healthier life give these three simple, everyday steps a try. Your body will thank you and you might even be inspired to keep making changes. Don’t worry, the suggestions I’m going to share aren’t monumental… but you’ll feel monumentally better!

Limit the amount of unhealthy snacks that you eat

Healthy Living is just a few steps away!Most of the unhealthy foods I eat come in the form of snacks… oops. One of the easiest ways to clean up your diet is to watch your snacking and replace unhealthy snacks with healthier foods.

Let’s start with chips. You can easily replace them with kale chips. I’m also a big fan of easy veggie snacks like carrots and hummus. If you have a sweet tooth like me try snacking on Made in Nature’s Tart Cherry Fig FiggyPops or a few Made In Nature Dates with nut butter.

Of course, everything is best in moderation. You don’t have to completely cut out all of your favorite treats (that’s a surefire way to bring on a junk food binge.) Indulge in those snacks mindfully, pay attention to your portion sizes, and then get back to the healthy snacks.

Move more and sit less for a happy body

A body in motion is a happy body — are you moving enough throughout the day? If you have trouble getting out of your desk during your daily life you may even want to purchase a fitness activity tracker.

Ask your friends and family members if they use one, because some models come with apps that allow you to easily “compete” with each other. Set challenges to see who can get the most steps and you might just find that a little friendly competition is the perfect motivation to get yourself to move more.

Drink more water

Drinking more water is one of the easiest ways to give your health a boost. If the taste of water isn’t all that appealing when compared to sugary sodas and juices, try adding some chopped fruit to your water bottle to give it a flavor boost.

I’ve written before about why drinking enough water is so important to living a healthy lifestyle, and water’s influence on your overall health can’t be overstated enough. Check that article out if you want to learn more — it even includes some tips and tricks for how to drink more water throughout the day.
