In today’s busy scheduled life, maintaining healthy habits is becoming a major challenge for many of us. In this article, I am going to discuss the healthy habits hacks with you. At first, l want to suggest you drink water the straight away you wake up from the bed. If you struggle and do not like to drink water early in the morning just because you do not like the flavor, you can add some fruits to make it a bit tastier that would make it easy and tasty to drink. Adding fruits would not only add flavor to water but it would also give you extra nutrients that help keep you fresh and energetic. If you don’t have enough time to make fresh smoothies in the morning, simply freeze or refrigerate the ingredients so they’re ready to go. If you want to go for a walk but you have nowhere to hide that big lump of keys. Take off the keys that you need to get into your apartment and attach them to your shoelace. Make sure you do a double knot so they don’t come off. If you’re feeling sore after a workout, have a bath with some Epsom salts in it. Cleaning can burn way more calories than you realize. So make a little cleaning routine for yourself and make sure you’re doing a little bit every day. When you’re going for a walk or a run, you can increase the intensity of your workout by adding in some little exercises. Find a park bench.
Do some step-ups, some box jumps or maybe even some dips. If you’re making a protein shake, add the water in first and then the protein so it doesn’t get stuck at the bottom of your shaker. It’s easy enough to exercise every day but where I see a lot of people fall short is with their meals. So a good way to get around this is to meal prep. It will mean that you’ll have a healthy option around a lot of the time and it can save you a lot of time and money. Add some spices to your meal to get your metabolism firing. If you’re doing steady-state cardio or something that’s boring, you could study or watch YouTube videos. Just have something that you can read or look at while you’re doing. it. Instead of counting calories, I would recommend tracking your macronutrients and your micronutrients. This will give you a lot better look at what you’re actually eating. I know that this one won’t be a popular one but it’s to ditch the coffee’s and cut back on as much caffeine as you can. Caffeine will fatigue your adrenal glands so I personally don’t like to drink caffeinated drinks. The same goes for things like pre-workouts. If you can swap your pre-workouts for something like a beta-alanine. It will still get the blood pumping through your muscles but you won’t get a crash from it. Foam roll as often as possible once a day if you can. It will help release your muscles and they won’t become sore after your workouts. Make being active a more regular part of your lifestyle. So play with pets or kids or just get out and more often play a sport. Something like that get more sunshine in your day. A little bit of sunshine each day can actually help boost your mood. If you’re going to go down out at a restaurant, it’s a good idea just to check up on what they have on the menu online, so you can plan beforehand. As I said food is one of the biggest battles, so have some healthy snacks prepared to take with you. Just so you’re not feeling inclined to go and get junk food on your way home or when you’re out, drive less and walk more. Wait for 10 to 15 minutes after a meal before you go for sleep. Take some time to relax. It doesn’t matter what this looks like for you. For me, at the moment it’s been making myself a cup of tea or putting on a face mask and then destroying some civilizations in Age of Empires three. If you really have to have dessert then swap out the dessert for a healthier option.
