January is ending and where are you now on your health and fitness goals? Were you one of the ones that made it this far or do you need a reboot?
Fortunately, there are a few simple tricks to do daily to get you back in the game. From there you can expand again into those resolution health goals that you wrote down not long ago.
#1 Drink Enough Water
Hydration is super important to your body and should be a goal you have daily. This is water, yes… Just Water. Make a minimum target of eight 8 ounce cups each day. Mix it up by adding fruit, but skip the sugary mixes. Spread your cups out over the day, so you are not pushing to get in big glasses before bed. Water helps you maximize your health and fitness results.
#2 Eat Your Veggies
Eating vegetables is a good habit. When you eat enough of them every day, you will look and feel better. Your body will have more energy and in turn will work harder and better for you. Most people do not get enough vegetables each day. Increasing your intake will is both beneficial and tasty.
#3 Eat Breakfast
Breakfast is a big part of the day that is often skipped. A trick is to make sure you have a protein during that meal. Protein works to level out your blood sugar, and it helps to reduce your hunger later. Build this early morning idea as a habit.
#4 Get Your Steps In
Walk every day. Walking is something you can do anywhere, anytime, and you do not even need any equipment. Take the option of the stairs, take a parking spot further away, walk to your coworker instead of calling or emailing them. Get your step count up.
#5 Get Your Sleep
Good sleep habits are just as important as all of the other practices. Without sleep, your body cannot recharge and repair. When you get a good night’s rest, you will wake up feeling refreshed. Build your sleep cycle by sleeping when you go to bed instead of playing on your phone or watching movies all night. Sleep does make a difference.
These are five habits that are helpful in creating a reboot for you. Remember you can always start on your health and fitness goals again…. All you need is a Monday!
