Written by Lisa Jillanza

Everyone wants to live a healthier lifestyle and get back on the right track when it comes to health and fitness. What if we told you that you can easily get back on the path to a healthier you just by following these 8 tips daily?

There’s no better time than to start right away… so here’s to your health!

  1. Maintain a healthy diet. Eat more complex carbohydrates, lean proteins, and healthy fats. You should also steer clear of sugary and processed foods.
  2. Stay Hydrated. The general rule is to drink half your body weight in ounces of water per day. So, if you weigh 150 pounds then shoot for 75 ounces of water each day.
  3. Give up smoking and limit your alcohol. Experts suggest only one drink per day.
  4. Brush your teeth. This seems like a silly one but brushing your teeth twice a day lowers the risk of heart disease, help your memory, reduces inflammation, and helps maintain sugar levels.
  5. Get enough sleep. Sleeping is always associated with better health, so make sure you are getting the daily recommendations.
  6. Exercise at least 3 to 5 times a week. Working out just 30 minutes a day can help you feel and look your best.
  7. Practice self-care. Self-care can be anything from meditation to massages, pedicures to praying. Whatever it is that helps you get that moment of Zen is what you should do.
  8. Let go of negativity. Negativity can lead to depression, stress, and general unhealthiness. Letting go of negativity can help you maintain a healthier lifestyle.
