Trying to establish a healthy lifestyle can seem challenging and overwhelming. Because some people don’t know how to get started, they just don’t bother with trying.

Before I started my weight loss, or healthy lifestyle journey, I procrastinated over and over again. While I did want better for myself, I couldn’t figure out the best way to go about it.

There is a lot of information floating around to take in. I’ve learned that the most important thing to remember is, small changes lead to big results.

Consistency and having a positive mindset are key when it comes to your health. Remember, this is meant to last a lifetime and not the life span of a diet.

Focus on small consistencies and form awesome habits that will become second nature.

 

Here are 5 healthy habits to last a lifetime:

 

1. Drink Water

Not only is water great for your overall health, it is essential to good health.

It helps to promote weight loss, flushes out toxins in the body, increases energy and relieves fatigue.

Think about it the next time you feel hungry, you may just be dehydrated and in need of some good old H20.

 

 

2. Drink Green Tea

Green tea is amazing for various reasons. This drink is a great alternative to other heavily sweetened beverages and can offer a healthier alternate, along with drinking water. It’s loaded with antioxidants and nutrients.

Green tea helps with fat loss, improved brain function and lowers your risk of cancer. You can read more here.

You can sweeten green tea with lemon, honey, agave nectar, herbs and other natural sweeteners for the best benefits.

 

 

3. Get Moving

To achieve great overall health, you’re going to have to move. This doesn’t have to be anything strenuous or even complicated. You could go for a walk, use your own body weight, equipment or a personal trainer. You can work out at home, a gym, a park or anywhere you’d like to.

Moving more creates balance in your mind, body and spirit. It also promotes flexibility and strong muscles.

As long as you do something, you’re doing something right. So get moving!

 

4. Get your Rest

We all get very busy in day to day tasks, running our lives. We often neglect simple, essential functions our bodies need to recover and work to the best of their abilities. Sleep is the most often neglected.

Sufficient sleep helps to improve memory, sharpen your attention, lower stress and will help you with your weight loss goals.

 

5.Make Time for Yourself

Again, we all get busy. However, it’s true that you can’t take care of anyone else properly, until you take care of yourself. You have to make yourself a priority!

Make sure you’re keeping up with all of your routine doctor’s appointments, enjoying time to yourself, taking on hobbies or activities that are just for you or spending quality time with close companions.

 

While there are several other habits you can adopt to achieve a healthier lifestyle, these are just a few to get you going.

Surround yourself with good habits, positive people and peaceful environments. You’ll have no choice but to take on a positive mindset to stay motivated and keep you going.

 

If you know of other habits that have worked for you, feel free to share and gain reward for helping others.

I probably do everything except Green Tea. But I do enjoy other herbal teas which I drink occasionally. But nothing replaces drinking water.

Healthy living is something that I would really like to start on this 2018. I will definitely keep your tips in mind and follow them slowly but surely!

Excellent tips. When I started trying to lose weight I also found that consistency and having a positive mindset made a big difference. Drink water also helped and I noticed that when I didn’t drink enough water my skin would break out. Now I just need to commit all of these tips to memory.

You’re so right, once you get into the habit of looking after your body it does become easier and natural. I used to be so bad at drinking enough water. I had to force myself to have at least a glass a day, now it’s become second nature and I wouldn’t be able to do without at least three glasses.

I am my worst enemy as I am aware of the full benefits drinking water does for a person yet I can’t bring myself to like it. I never reach out for water and it is honestly one of my biggest downfalls. I find Ramdhan is the exception especially during Suhoor – I can drink up to 4 glasses!
