Easy Ways to Energize Your Everyday
Small changes can make a big impact, and all the daily micro-habits and routines we follow can really add up when it comes to our wellbeing.
Whether it’s making a commitment to a new workout plan, the goal to wake up earlier, or the decision to quit a vice that’s holding you back - we’re constantly tempted to make sweeping lifestyle changes when feeling in need of a shake-up. Sticking to these commitments, however, is a whole different story.
What if change didn’t have to be drastic to be effective? Slow and steady wins the race, and you might be surprised to find there’s a lot to be shown for the little things that add up.
Want to level up your life and get the best out of your body? Here’s 7 easy daily habits you can start doing today to improve your health and quality of life:
7. Get Some Sunshine
Exposure to the sun facilitates the production of vitamin D in your body, which can help decrease the risk of anything from fatigue to weakened immune system, bone and back pain, low mood and depression.
Make time in your day to go outside, whether that means jumping off the bus a stop early to walk a few blocks home, or simply eating al fresco on your lunch break.
6. Check Your Posture
Getting into the habit of pausing and correcting your posture can reap serious benefits - for instance, lowering the risk of chronic back pain, one of the most common health problems in the United States and a leading cause of disability.
Whatever you’re doing now, take a moment to straighten up that spine, relax your shoulders and soften your face. See how much better that feels already?
5. Take the Stairs
Don’t have time to hit the gym? Forgo the elevator and opt for the stairs whenever you need to get to another floor. It’s an easy way to squeeze some incidental exercise and cardio into your routine without a major disruption to your schedule.
Not to mention, the steps can really add up, and if you make the conscious effort to move your body whenever makes sense, you’ll be unlocking all sorts of feel-good endorphins that boost your mood.
4. Put the Phone Down Before Bed
It’s no secret by now that all the screens in our daily life have a massive effect on our circadian rhythm and sleep cycles. Be sure to plug in your phone for the night further away than reaching distance from your bed, or even turn it off altogether an hour before you plan to sleep.
This not only protects you from harmful EMF radiation that phones emit while charging, but will reduce your stress levels for better sleep quality at night.
3. Wake Up with H20
Make a habit of keeping a full glass of water on your nightstand, so you can rehydrate yourself immediately as soon as you wake up. It’s easy to forget that while we’re sleeping, our bodies are losing a lot of moisture through respiration, and our bodies have to go the entire stretch of hours without a single sip of water.
A lot of the cloudy head and body stiffness we feel in the mornings is due to our bodies being parched, so hydrate and feel great!
Additionally, by forcing yourself to sit up to take a sip, the instant shot of H2O to the system will do wonders for helping you wake up to tackle the morning.
2. Expand Your Mind
Instead of mindlessly scrolling your social media feed on the bus, while waiting for your coffee, or whenever you find yourself with a free moment; Pick up something real to read instead. Whether it’s a book, magazine, or local publication, you’ll be doing your mind a favor when you opt for paper.
Reading articles or anything longer-format than a tweet does wonders for your attention span, brain health, and even lowers your risk for dementia and Alzheimer's.
Grab a magazine with a quiz section, flip to the back and try your hand at the crossword or sudoku puzzles to engage your mind and keep you sharp in a fun, lighthearted way.
