Here are five tips for how to kick-start your healthy lifestyle.
1. Set small goals!
If you set one big goal for the year the truth is it may be hard to know where to start or to keep your momentum. For me, I recommend setting smaller, mini goals. When setting a small goal it will be easier to reach and measure your progress. We all know how great it feels when you hit a goal so once you hit your small goal you then can create another small goal. You will have the excitement to achieve it! Who doesn’t love crossing
Determine your specific goals and write them down. I recommend using a planner. Check out my post on the Purposeful Planner. Now write down how you will achieve those goals. Be specific! Will you record everything you eat in a food tracking app? Will you exercise at high intensity 3-4 days a week? Will you use an app to make sure you are getting 8 hours of sleep per night?
2. Clear the junk
To life a healthy lifestyle whether its mentally or physical, you need some form of a detox. It is important to clear what you don’t need that may distract you from your progress. If you are looking to focus on diet, clean out your fridge and pantry. Throw out foods and beverages that will prevent you from hitting your goals. We all know there are some items left in the house that will temp you, get rid of them!
If it’s more mental that you are focusing on, eliminate negativity in your life. Is there something or someone in your life that triggers you or makes your feel bad about yourself? Remove it from your life!
3. Get into meal prepping – game changer!!
Ever since living on my own, I meal prep. Trying to save time? Meal prep! Looking to eat
4. Drink your H2O
Water, water, and more water! Drinking enough water in a day is so important. I try to drink a gallon a day, hard to do I know! I use a Hydro Gallon, which is a half gallon bottle and I know after drinking two I’ve hit my goal. To learn more about my bottle check out my post here! I have also shared a few bottles that I highly recommend below.
