Beauty and well-being are two sides of the same coin.
You can’t be beautiful without feeling good in your skin, and you can’t feel good without looking good. When you’re at your best, both sides are working together in harmony.
Why do we transition into a healthy lifestyle?
Because we want to feel good. We want to be able to get out of bed in the morning, look in the mirror and feel proud of what we see. To go out with friends and not have them tell us that we’re looking tired or pale or puffy (even though they probably are too). We want to feel like we can conquer anything!
And that’s what this is all about: feeling like you can conquer anything! You’ve got this!
Check out our tips below for how to transition into a healthy lifestyle:
If you’ve never been one for exercise, don’t jump right into an intense workout schedule—it’s too daunting! Start by incorporating just one activity into your day, like walking or yoga. You can build up from there as your fitness level improves.
Find inspiration in others who are living the life you want.
Whether they’re your friends or celebrities, look up to people who have achieved what you’d like to achieve, and try to incorporate their habits into your routine—you’ll find it easier than starting from scratch!
Get excited about the change
Getting excited about something makes it more fun and interesting—so if you find yourself dreading a new habit or routine, try changing the way you view it: instead of seeing it as a chore or obligation, see it as an opportunity
Cut down on processed foods, and start eating more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein sources like fish or chicken breast.
Drink lots of water
You should drink about half your body weight in ounces per day (for example: if you weigh 150 pounds, drink 75 ounces). Try to drink this amount every day throughout the day instead of waiting until dinner time to have one big glass—this will help keep your body hydrated throughout the day.
Set aside sometime each day for exercise or just go for walks outside. You don’t have to spend hours in the gym—just get up from your desk every once in a while and move around! Even 10 minutes can do wonders for your mood and overall health. And remember: walking counts!
Get enough sleep
Your body needs at least 8 hours of rest each night so that it can repair itself from stressors like working long hours without enough breaks between shifts (which often leads to chronic pain).
Know what you’re eating.
It’s easy to grab a burger on the go, but then you find yourself with an upset stomach and an upset wallet. Instead of rushing through your meals and grabbing whatever is easiest, take the time to read labels on food products and find out what they contain. You’ll be able to make better decisions about what goes into your body—and how much money you spend on it.
Make it fun
Find ways to make your new habits fun, so that you’ll want to keep doing them even when things get hard or boring (like running errands). A few ideas: Put on some upbeat music while you work out, reward yourself after every workout with a healthy snack (like an apple with peanut butter), or take a bubble bath when you get home from work instead of jumping into bed right away.
