Healthy Habit #1

Make Time! 

Make time FOR YOURSELF, for meditation, for exercise, for meal prep, for work, for rest, etc.

Why is this habit important?
Making time for yourself is an essential habit because if not done, it’s easy to neglect! Work, family, kids, and life, in general, can get in the way of carving out those few precious moments that can make a big impact on your day.

How to implement this habit:
Start small… set aside just 5 minutes early in your day to accomplish something just for you. The earlier you complete this habit each day the more likely it is you won’t put it off!

Healthy Habit #2

Drink plenty of water

Why is this habit important?
I know, I know, this one you’ve heard before over and over. But it IS important in order to feel your best and reach your goals! When you are properly hydrated, you sleep better and reduce inflammation to help your body work optimally.

How to implement this habit:
To decide how much water you should be drinking each day, take your body weight, divide by 2= total ounces of water per day. Decide how many refills of your favorite water bottle it will take to drink that many ouncews and count of how many times each day you refill your water bottle and voila! An easy way to stick to your goal!

Healthy Habit #3

Eat Slowly:  

Why this habit is important 
It takes 20 minutes for the stomach to tell the brain that it is full, but if you eat your food too quickly, you can eat too much. By the time your stomach tells your brain it’s full, you’ve already eaten everything on your plate (and your kiddo’s plate too) and it’s too late!

How to implement today’s habit
Remember, eating is not a race, take your time and enjoy each bite for 15 “chews”.  Be present in the moment and really enjoy your meal and table conversation with friends and family!

Healthy Habit #4

 Get Plenty of Rest

Why is this habit important
The body’s recovery from the day’s activities happens while we sleep, the less sleep we get the less recovery to prepare us for tomorrow! Sleep is a crucial keystone habit for so many reasons, so make sure you’re getting plenty of it! You should be getting a minimum of 7 hours per night!

How to implement this habit
Some tips on getting enough sleep…set your alarm to wake up early to make time for your new lifestyle! If you sleep in, your body won’t be ready for bed at the appropriate time this evening. Getting plenty of exercise during your day will wear you out by bedtime as well.   And lastly, make sure you’re adding good healthy fats to your diet such as avocados or foods rich in Omega 3’s, such as grilled or baked salmon. Quality healthy fats help you sleep better!

Healthy Habit #5

Eat more veggies than fruit

Why is this habit important?
Vegetables provide longer lasting energy than fruit, plus they are power-packed full of nutrients to give you the most bang for your buck!

How to implement this habit:
Eat the rainbow! The more colors from a variety of veggies, the better nutrients we get in our diet! A good gauge for how much veggies you should eating… for every one piece of fruit, 3-5 veggies at every meal!

Healthy Habit #6

Choose goal appropriate exercises

Why this habit is important
Choosing goal appropriate exercises helps you arrive at your goals quickly and safely. For example, the exercises in this 7-day challenge, are picked specifically for you to get the most results in a short amount of time.

How to implement this habit:
We recommend finding a good resource to follow for motivation and who knows your niche inside and out!  Got questions about which exercises are best for you?

Healthy Habit #7

Plan meals ahead of time

Why this habit is important:
Planning your meals ahead of time will not only save you time and money but also help you get to your nutrition and health goals. If you have planned out (and hopefully prepped) your breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snacks it’s more likely that you will plan healthy options rather than reach for quick & convenient but often less healthy choices.

How to implement this habit:
Start by planning out your week: which meals will be at home, which will be at work, or out to eat.  If not at home, have a plan that covers what to eat when!  

Would you like to feel more energized and confident so that you can juggle all your responsibilities AND have time for home workouts that get results?
