I have been having a blast compiling all of these tips for you and me! Gentle reminders on how to live healthier are great and always welcome. Remember: If you have any you would like to share, please Let us know ! I would love to put together a list that is comprised of tips from you our readers!
- Bed Time
Want to feel brilliant tomorrow? Stop burning the midnight oil. Not getting enough sleep can have nasty effects on your daily life. Headaches, weight gain (maybe you are snacking into the wee hours), to memory loss! Get your at least 8 hours a night and see how dramatically your tomorrows start becoming. Sleep also happens to be our Hardcore Weight Loss Tip #3!
- Boob Tube
This is another one to shut down. How many hours are you spending in front of the TV on a weekly basis? The number could be quite staggering! Do the math for a week and be shocked. Turn it off – that is except for your die hard favorites – add in a workout while you are watching. Squats, crunches – you get the idea! It can be hard, but a great start is to cancel cable…
- Write it Down
Things start getting real when you have to write them down. Kind of like paying with cash. Write down your food and water intake daily. Being accountable leads to future success in your healthy lifestyle. Keep track of your workouts too. Super helpful to have a record of your activity – try and set goals to break next week or month.
- Yuck it Up
Pick up a funny book, go see a comedy show, or hang out with funny friends. Laughter is a key component to happiness and life satisfaction. Studies have also shown that those who laugh more may live longer! Remember the last time you laughed so hard you were doubled over? Try and make that happen today!
- On Your Feet
Stop sitting so much! Does your employer offer standing desk options? If yes, request one. If not, take short walks during the day. At the very least stand up and stretch. Your body wants to be moving. You will lessen lower back pain by standing more as well. I switched to a standing desk 2 years ago, and my back problems are less, and my legs are much stronger!
