Small Habit Changes, Big Life Improvements Part 1

Embarking on a healthier lifestyle is what many of us strive for. Be that at the beginning of the week, month or year.

This idea can often seem daunting and unachievable. However, small changes are all that are needed in order to create a healthy lifestyle.

Implementing these simple and easy changes into your daily life will enable you to reach your goals. Whether that is to lose weight, gain energy, sleep better, or savour time with family and friends.

Small changes will ultimately lead to a happier, healthier you.

 

Physical Activity

  • Next time you are walking, consciously speed up to a brisk walk, this can burn up to 100 more calories per hour and it will help to get your body moving.
  • If cycling to work is an option – do it!
  • Have a go at several of your local fitness classes, just because you didn’t enjoy one doesn’t mean you won’t love the next.
  • Reduce the time you spend sitting. Take regular breaks from your desk and find alternatives to sitting in front of the tv or computer each evening.
  • Embrace your housework with some loud music – this will help to elevate your heart rate and likely get your body moving with more gusto!
  • Tackle the gardening – you know it’ll look better for it!

Nutrition

  • If you are choosing something that you know is calorie dense such as cheese or nuts, why not measure it out to get your eye in. Eating high calorie foods from large packets can often make it feel as though you are eating less than you are. This needn’t be a long-term change, but it may well pave the way for a reduction in unnecessary calories.
  • Thoroughly chew your food and pause between mouthfuls – it takes 20 minutes for your brain to register that your stomach is full. Taking your time over a meal will lead to less likelihood of overeating.
  • Embark of your food shopping trips with a list and stick to it.
  • Carry healthy snacks with you such as chopped fruit or veg, oatcakes or plain nuts.
  • When cooking, double the quantity you need and freeze the remaining half for later in the week.
  • Don’t ban any foods – it’s well known that when you can’t have something, you will want it more. Having a little of what you love is good for the mind and body.
  • Be mindful of the amount of alcohol you are consuming – it contains empty calories that quickly stack up. Try diluting your choices down with a sugar-free mixer or soda water.
  • Aim to drink around 1.5-2 litres of water each day.
  • Aim to drink no more than 4 cups of tea or coffee each day.
  • Consume no more than 14 units of alcohol spread evenly throughout the week – with at least 2 consecutive alcohol free days.
  • We have so many delicious, health conscious recipes, click here to get your week ahead planned out.
