We are almost always in search of ways to make ourselves healthier and happier. But did you realize that in order to be healthy and happy, simple lifestyle tweaks can do the trick? Common items around your home, as well as simple everyday habits can be combined to help yourself on the road to happiness and health! Read on and find simple ways on achieving inner and outer happiness for a healthier, better version of you!
Smile At Yourself
Well, to start off, how would you feel good if your face is sporting a huge frown? It’s time to turn that upside down and make it into a huge grin to make you feel better! Too many times, lots of life stressors pull us apart, making us lose even the willingness to smile. Don’t be like that! When you wake up in the morning, give yourself a sweet smile before getting on with your day. Whenever you feel stressed, smile- it may seem ironic, but then your smile could give you the confidence and energy boost you need to move on with your day. It’s that simple!
Hydrate Yourself More Often
The human body is mostly composed of water, so it’s naturally a great idea to up your intake of this fluid! When a person becomes dehydrated, his body succumbs to thirst, making it function less than the optimum. Drinking enough water- pure water without any mix-ins!- helps replenish your body, supples up your skin, keeps your muscles and tissues healthy, and prevents your bones from injuries because of increased lubrication. Drink at least 8-12 glasses of water and increase intake of fruits such as watermelons to hydrate yourself!
Help Yourself To Yummy Green Veggies!
Green is the way to go! Your body will surely love the nutrients that green leafy vegetables have- such as fiber, phytochemicals, vitamin C, lutein, calcium, folate and many more! They also provide good sources of hydration because they naturally contain water in it. Yummy and healthy, include leafy greens in your diet and watch your body’s immune system transform! Include these greens in your grocery list now: kale, collards, spinach, lettuce, watercress and turnip greens.
Munch On Some Nuts
Kick out the habit of mindless snacking and start replacing your junk snacks with healthier ones like nuts! Eating lots of walnuts and almonds help replenish nutrients that are essential for the development and health of your brain. Filled with omega-3 and magnesium, your brain will surely become sharper and healthier in no time!
So start including these tweaks to your food and mindset and watch the healthier, happier version of you unfold! Here’s to health and happiness! 🙂
