A healthy and happy lifestyle is one of the most important things to maintain in life. Life is short, so why wouldn’t you want to live the best life you can each and every day? There are five simple steps that are easy to incorporate into your daily lives that put you on a path to a healthier lifestyle!
- Exercise. Get out and exercise for at least an hour a day! It can be as simple as riding your bike or playing basketball with your friends. You know what they say, when you look good, you feel good!
- Sleep. Sleep is so, so important! Getting 7-8 hours every night will make such a big difference! When I get a good night of sleep, it’s a lot easier for me to pay attention in school. The day actually goes by a little faster when I’m not constantly trying to keep my eyes open!
- Eat healthy. Eating a healthy diet will not only satisfy you and your body, but make you feel good :)! If you’re not a fan of fruits and vegetables, there are several substitutes that can give you the vitamins and nutrients you need. Just follow the food pyramid on the right for a start to a yummy and healthy diet!
- Think positive. Having a good attitude improves ANY situation you’re in. Even going to school or work can turn from bad to good if you start your day in the right mindset.
- Love more. Encourage others and build them up. I view loving others as a domino effect, once someone sees you being a positive influence in someone’s life, they want to do the same! It’s as simple as that!
