Spring is finally HERE, which means brighter mornings, warmer days and some fresh energy. This is the perfect time of year to change-up your daily routine with some new healthy habits.
Wellness can be a pretty overwhelming topic – we get that. From the latest superfoods you should be eating and hippest workout trends, to the advice from experts which changes every day… staying on top of it all can seem impossible.
But it doesn’t need to be so complicated. Sometimes, the smallest adjustments to your day-to-day habits can make a huge impact on your wellbeing.
Here’s some of our favorite simple ways to step up your wellness game:
Take it outside.
Whether it’s a morning walk to the train station, or taking your lunch outside, getting at least a few minutes of fresh air each day will boost your mood and relieve stress. Plus, those valuable rays of sunshine will give your body a dose of Vitamin D that it probably hasn’t had for few months!
Make it simple: Incorporate a 15-20min walk into your morning or evening commute – but don’t forget the SPF, even on cloudy days.
The colder months can wreak havoc on our skin, hair and nails, so now is the time to think about giving back to your body with some vital nourishment. But we’re not talking about a day at the spa: there are plenty of easy, at-home care routines that you can try.
Make it simple: Try dry brushing for 10mins before your morning or evening shower to increase circulation, promote detoxification and slough-off that dry winter skin.
Drink more water.
It’s nothing new, but water is a health essential. Getting between 1.5-2 litres per day will make an enormous impact on your digestion, skin, hair, energy levels, metabolism… the list goes on.
Make it simple: Invest in a quality water flask and try adding fruit and herbs to make drinking water more fun!
Eat more fiber.
Fiber is hugely important to a healthy diet – and most of us aren’t getting enough. Make an effort to get your daily serve of fiber (about 25g) to promote heart health and digestion, as well as keeping you full of energy and less likely to reach for that tasty (but naughty) 3 pm snack.
Make it simple: Try adding chia to your breakfast smoothie or sprinkle into your lunch salad – one Chia Shot provides 6g of fiber.
Try something new.
We’re more than a third of the way through the year (scary huh!) and chances are your fitness routine might be starting to feel a little played out. Trying something new is a great way to bring the spark back!
