IMG_5972

I have been training myself and my body to slowly incorporate healthy habits into my everyday life. It isn’t always easy as I forget or get busy sometimes but I really do try for the most part. I wanted to share 3 healthy habits that I’m working on currently and 3 that I would love to add soon.

Healthy habits I’m currently working on: 

  1. Walking more.
  2. Limiting only 1 to 2 cups of coffee intake per day.
  3. Complaining less & appreciating more.

Healthy habits I want to add:

  1. Drink more water.
  2. Eat healthier.
  3. Be more positive.

What are some of your healthy habits?

A book that has inspired me…

IMG_5879

A while back I was kinda obsessed with Khloe Kardashian and got her book “Strong looks better naked,” and loved it. It inspired and motivated me to work out, work on my health, my body and to just put myself first. I remember I was on my fitness and healthy lifestyle journey for a good few months after reading that book and then I fell off the wagon. Since then I haven’t really picked up the book again, or maybe I did once after that but only read a few chapters only. I think I will pick it up again and reread it to see if it will again give me that motivation that inspiration to get myself back on track since I have been so off since this whole coronavirus started.

What is one book that has inspired you???

anxiety

Giving up coffee…

If you know me then you know how much I love my coffee, so I’m so sad that I have to give it up for a while…at least a few days. Well I don’t have too but my anxiety has been through the roof the past 2 weeks and I honestly think its because my coffee intake has increased a ton. I was drinking at least 2 to sometimes 3 cups of coffee a day and I even had green tea extract pills in my vitamin pack that I was taking so it was a lot. I have officially as of today stopped taking the vitamins all together including the green tea extract pills along with coffee. I am drinking tea and ice tea which has some caffeine in it but that’s ok. Other than a major headache which I currently have right now, I have been feeling great…no signs of anxiety today which is awesome. I miss coffee so bad if I’m being honest. I just love everything about coffee and I might even prefer it over tea, which is the number 1 thing I was obsessed with growing up and most of my adult life pretty much.

Fingers crossed this little break from coffee and the pills helps get rid of my anxiety again for a long time then I will slowly introduce coffee and multivitamin pills only (not green tea extract) into my daily life and take it from there…..but for now, if you drink coffee please enjoy some for me too!

Six Healthy Habits to Start Today!

Love yourself enough to live a healthy lifestyle!

January is now here and it’s the perfect time to start incorporating healthy habits into our daily routine. I didn’t fully start my healthy journey till tomorrow (Monday) mainly because I was still on vacation and didn’t have to go back to work yet and used that as an excuse. Now that I am back to work tomorrow and back to my every day routine, I want to start adding more healthy habits into my life and I wanted to share some with you in hopes you would like to join me. 

  1. Stretch when you first wake up. I don’t know about you but I never stretch in the mornings which is so bad and I know it will help me Aton since I have a lot of back pain. So starting tomorrow morning, I will be adding a few minutes of stretching into my morning routine. 
  2. Drink a glass of cold water first thing in the morning. I used to hate doing this only because believe it or not I would want to throw up if I drank water before tea or coffee in the morning. However, the past few weeks, I have been slowly trying to train my body into accepting water first and its been helping. 
  3. Get some fresh air. Life can keep us so busy and stressed and it is so important to take a few minutes to walk out and get some fresh air. You can clear your head and hey even get a few steps in. 
  4. Stay active. I never knew how important it was to stay active until the past few months honestly. I am now so aware of how much being active is good for our bodies, for our health, and for our mental health. I spent a few days being lazy and not doing much and I cannot begin to tell you how much that affected my mood, and my energy. I felt so horrible until I forced myself to get up and get moving and get outside for some fresh air.
  5. Enjoy a few minutes of quiet time in the evenings. For me I love to drink a book and drink a chamomile tea to help me relax and get ready for bed. 
  6. Get enough sleep! I try to aim for a minimum of 6 to 9 hours of sleep a night, which I must admit the 6 hours usually happens during the weekdays and anything over 7 hours usually only happens on the weekends. 

I would love to know some of your healthy habits that you do daily.
