Here are 5 easy habits to begin in 2020! Even though we are a month in, it’s never too late to start good habits!
1. Make one of your meals healthier each day
Choose one meal to focus on and pack it with nutrition you need for the day! Pack a small serving of protein, a side of veggies, and one serving of fruit – for example, packing a chicken breast, some carrots, and an apple; or a can of tuna, a few cucumbers, and a banana would both be nutritious lunch options, explains Inc. Also, once you start eating healthier for one meal a day, there’s a good chance you’ll want to start making every meal you eat healthy!
2. Drink water before every meal
Chugging a glass of water before every meal can help you lose weight, improve your skin, and feel more energized. Not only does drinking more water ensure you’re hydrated. Also, water helps plump up your skin, causing wrinkles and pores to become less noticeable. Drinking water can also cause you to feel more energized by preventing dehydration.
3. Walk more
An easy way to get daily exercise in is to start walking. Walking is an easy, non vigorous way to start feeling better and refreshed each day!
4. Add vegetables to everything
Vegetables are a great source of vitamins and minerals. I suggest aiming for five servings of vegetables a day, noting that many of the most powerful nutrients are in the veggies with the boldest colors, such as broccoli, cabbage, carrots, and leafy greens.
5. Get a good night’s sleep
A little extra sleep can drastically improve your health. Not only will it cure your under-eye circles and boost your energy, but getting adequate amounts of sleep can improve your memory and quality of life, curb inflammation, sharpen your attention, help you maintain a healthy weight, and lower your stress.
