With the start of a new year means the start of many goals and resolutions, but in reality you don’t need a new year to start on your goals. I have been working on my health for the past couple of weeks (aside from holiday splurges of course!) and these are my top 5 tips for a healthier you.
Drink more water
The amount of water that we are supposed to be drinking per day sounds overwhelming most of the time and it seems like most people (including me) have a hard time drinking that much per day. Especially since water can get boring after a while.
Even though it is hard, it’s still really important that we do get a significant amount of healthy liquids in our systems everyday. So in addition to my regular water, I have made it a priority to drink detoxwater™.
It has aloe in it that includes 20 different minerals that help detoxify your body. Regular water already flushes out the bad toxins in your body, but detoxwater™ flushes out the toxins AND adds healthy minerals.
Just as important as drinking healthy fluids is regular exercise. The best way to do this as a busy mom like me is to wake up earlier, grab a detoxwater™ (including all of the benefits I listed before, it is also extremely refreshing), and head for the gym or out for a run.
If you have kids it can sometimes be difficult to find the time to commit to exercising on a regular basis, but even if it is just a 30 minute walk to the park make the time to get up and move!
Not only will you receive physical benefits from regular exercise, but you will also receive mental benefits and long term health benefits.
Wake up earlier
Sometimes committing to a healthier lifestyle includes making sacrifices. In order to have the time to exercise or prepare a healthy breakfast you’ll have to wake up before the kids and get these things done.
Waking up earlier also gives you some time alone to reflect on your day, read, exercise, or anything else that makes you feel like you are taking the time you need for yourself.
If your husband is an early riser too this could be the time for you both to have a cup of coffee together and engage in one on one conversation without crazy kiddos running around.
Try to eliminate most of your processed foods. One thing that has really helped my family with this is shopping at an organic grocery store. The temptations are not there at all, but they do still have some sweet tooth options that are healthier.
I don’t always eat 100% healthy, but I do think that it is important to include a healthy amount of fresh produce in our diets. It is all about balance!
This is another reason why I drink detoxwater™. Sometimes my days are so busy that I don’t have the time to cook meals with all the nutrients I need. By drinking detoxwater™ I improve my digestive health, my immune system, my skin health, and more….again, it is all about balance! Not every day will be the same so try not to expect it to be.
Get enough sleep
This tip ties in with a few of the above, but is even more important. If you don’t have time to exercise daily or meal prep a healthy meal every single day…it is okay. Call the day a wash, get to bed, and try again the next day.
We are useless to ourselves and our families with no sleep so take that time to recoup every night in order to be the best you possible!
