Empowering women to live healthy and sustainable lifestyles is an important message we all want to share. Sometimes it can feel overwhelming to implement healthy choices when days are busy, but we wanted to share 10 tips that can help make each day easier to promote wellness in your daily life.
1. Drink a Glass of Water First Thing in the Morning
Wake up your metabolism by re-hydrating yourself first thing in the morning. By having a glass of water in the AM, you’ll notice your energy is boosted and you’ll be ready to take on the day. Add in a squeeze of lemon to aid in digestions and even enhance your skin’s health.
2. Manage Stress and Anxiety with Self-Care
Constant stress and the feeling of anxiety can wreak havoc on our mental health. Take a moment each day to take in fresh air if you work in an office, and really get to know what your stress and anxiety triggers are. It’s important to take care of your mental health to lead a happy lifestyle.
We have a whole blog dedicated to anxiety and ways to deal with it. You can read it here.
3. Remember to Eat Your Greens
A simple way to live a healthier lifestyle is by incorporating more veggies in your diet. Add sustainable living to this by planting your own lettuce and herbs. Both a fun and easy way to promote wellness in your daily life!
Tip: Add spinach to your fruit smoothie for that extra boost. Spinach is rich in vitamins and can help improve many health functions.
4. Switch to Non-toxic/Sustainable Cleaning Products

5. Eat Nutritious Food
Aiming to eat clean and organically is an easy way to boost your energy, immune system, and overall health. Most of our energy comes from what we eat and how we eat it. Try your best to avoid processed and packaged food, and make it a goal to opt for fresh meals that hit the important nutrition factors.
6. Sweat Every Day
Make it a goal exercise every day. Whether it is 30 minutes or an hour, running, Pilates, or dancing, try to get your body moving. Over time, you’ll notice your energy and mood will improve, and best of all, your health!
7. Sleep Well
Most people need at least 7-9 hours of sleep every night to have a functioning following day. Easy ways to create a relaxing bedtime routine is to keep the TV out of the bedroom and avoid any screen time once your head hits the pillow. Take this time to read a book, meditate, pray, or whatever it is that helps you wind down for the best night of sleep possible.
