- Make the best out of every situation you face
The mind is a powerful tool. Many studies have shown that positive thinking can affect health. When you are stuck in a certain situation, there is no point in wasting time regretting the past and neglecting the present. Face the situation and try to make the best out of it. I’m not saying that this is something easy to do, but you are capable of overcoming anything in order to reach your goals. And remember, it’s just a phase!
- Never Skip Breakfast!
One of my favorite meals of the day is breakfast. Whether I woke up really early or very late, I never leave the house without having eaten. Having an early meal fuels your body for the day and minimizes the chances of overeating during later meals.
- Exercise Regularly
Any type of physical activity is a plus for your health. Integrate some easy steps to get a little more active, like parking your car a little farther, taking the stairs, carrying your own groceries… Take the initiative and choose to try something new and fun with your friends. Join a dance class or try yoga or simply commit to being gym buddies. Joining a gym or new class gives you an opportunity to meet new people and enhances your mood. I exercise because it makes me feel good!
- Do more of the things that make you happy
According to Oxford Dictionaries, the definition of being happy is when an individual feels or shows pleasure and contentment. Doing more of what makes you happy helps release your stress and increase your positive vibes.
- Drink more water
Your body is made up of approximately 60% water. Drinking more water helps keep your skin hydrated. I sometimes tend to forget to drink water but I attempt to always carry a bottle of water with me wherever I go in order to at least drink 1.5-2 liters of water daily.
- Meditate from time to time
From time to time, spending some time alone simply doing nothing is all you need. Allow yourself some “me time”, enjoy the sunset from your balcony, or find a quite spot at a park, or mountain, and go there and be still from time to time. Escaping the hustle and stress of the day to day can help relieve stress and re-energize you.
