Catch more zzz! The lazy gal’s guide to IMPROVING your health

Getting healthy doesn’t necessarily mean you have to become a gym junkie, or eat like a rabbit for the rest of your life.

Improving your health can be as simple as taking a short walk during the day, cutting down on your intake of fat and sugar, or swapping take-away for a home-cooked meal once in a while.

Change can seem a little overwhelming for people, especially if they feel they are stuck in a rut, and are unsure where to start.

But, with these five simple tips you can start improving your health today:

1. Drink lemon water

Adding lemon juice to your water can detox the body, promote healthy skin, aid healthy digestion, boost your vitamin C intake, and encourage weight loss.

2. Clear out the fridge

One simple way to get healthy is to stop eating bad food. You could start by clearing out your fridge, and food cupboards of all things nasty.  You  will be less likely to eat it, because it’s not there.

3. Get some exercise

Walk yourself fit. Did you know that walking for just 30 minutes a day has been said to improve people’s health significantly, as it reduces the risk of heart disease.

4. Stretch, stretch, and stretch some more

This doesn’t mean you have to sign up to Pilates or yoga, but stretching daily can improve blood circulation.

Good blood circulation is important in preventing illnesses like diabetes or kidney disease, so, stretch those legs.

5. Inhale that fresh air 

Fresh air is full of negative ions that make us feel good naturally. So, if you are looking to get healthy, in both mind and body, get outside, and take a deep breath of fresh air.

6. Catch enough zzz

Get a good night’s sleep. Nothing can put you on edge more than lack of sleep. So, put your phone on silent, turn down the lights, and try to get a full eight hours unbroken sleep.

If your nerves are keeping you up at night, try taking some deep breaths, taking some natural lavender oil tablets, or using a mindfulness app for 10 minutes before bed.

Sweet dreams.
