Change 3 things you do each week, endorsing healthy living…..and make it a habit. Here are a few examples…
1. Sweat several times per week
This is kept very general for a reason. Not everybody likes a traditional “workout regime” and I’m a big believer in finding what works for you and doing that. If you love hiking until you work up a sweat but can’t stand the gym – go for a few hikes a week. If you love doing CrossFit but hate Pilates, go to CrossFit! In any case, you want to make sure you’re sweating (meaning, getting your heart rate high enough to enjoy the cardiovascular benefits) several times per week.
2. Drink plenty of water every day. (Try to hit a gallon)
It can do so many good things for you. Staying hydrated is at the top of the list, but it may also help you lose weight. Another reason to go for H2O? Sugary drinks are linked to obesity and type 2 diabetes. If you aren’t a fan of plain water, add flavor with slices of orange, lemon, lime, watermelon, or cucumber.
3. Do 25-50 Lunges or squats per day and 25 sit ups.
Moving the body in the middle of a workday has great benefits to the mind and the body. Body movement can stimulate the brain, and cause healthy brain function, breathing, and toxin release from the body especially if you sweat. This can even be done at your workstation while on a break. Creating this one simple daily task will be a game change in how you feel the rest of the day.
