3 Easy Steps to a Healthier Lifestyle


The warm and sunny weather we've been having lately has done wonders to motivation on all fields. Mostly, however, I've been more inspired to blog (have you noticed?!) and to be healthy. Because I gave up chocolate for Lent and I've done a pretty good job of sticking to it, I've been eating less sweets and sugary foods, which has actually left me feeling more motivated in itself too. However, I know that cutting back on favorite foods can be challenging, so today I'm sharing super easy ways to incorporate a little fitness or healthy energy into your everyday life.

1. Wall sit while brushing your teeth | People brush their teeth anywhere from 30 seconds to 3 minutes, so why not spend that time wisely! Wall sitting for even just a few seconds is great for your glutes and quads and can really strengthen you over time if you do it twice a day!

2. Drink water first thing in the morning and last thing at night | I know it's super hard for some people to motivate themselves to drink water, but just downing a glass first thing when you wake up and then another right before bed is a great way to boost your metabolism for the day and again before you go to sleep. 

3. Start each day with a healthy breakfast | It's a proven fact that people who start their day on a healthy note will continue to make healthier choices throughout the rest of the day. Breakfast is the most important meal, so skipping it is terrible for your metabolism. Fruit salad, whole wheat toast, scrambled eggs, there are so many choices!

I hope I left you feeling inspired!

  2. The wall sit is such a great idea, I also do squats or calf raises sometimes while I'm brushing my teeth :)
