Have you been feeling down lately? From meeting stressful work deadlines to taking care of your troublesome kids, juggling life’s responsibilities can take its toll on your health, both mentally and physically. This doesn’t have to be the case! With just a few simple changes to your weekly routine, you can start living a happier and healthier lifestyle. Start feeling good, all year round, with these 7 simple tips.

Everything In Moderation

Every week there seems to be new a diet fad that guarantees a quick fix to weight loss and improved health. The truth is you don’t have to give up the food you love, or try some unusual fad, in order to lose weight. Instead be conscious of what you’re eating and try to burn more calories than you’re consuming in a day. If you have a balanced diet, then enjoying some cheeky late-night chocolate now and again is perfectly fine.

Get Outside

In modern society we’re surrounded by technology. Whether you love spending time inside watching Netflix and playing video games or you work 9-to-5 in an office job, it’s important you make an effort to get outside and catch some vitamin D. Vitamin D has been linked to a reduced risk of heart disease and several forms of cancer, as well as an improved immune system. Just be careful not to get burnt!


Don’t Skimp On Sleep

Lead a busy lifestyle? Don’t have enough time in the day to get 8 hours sleep? You need to start making time! Getting 8 hours sleep a night is crucial if you want to stay mentally and physically energised throughout the day. Cutting out sleep will make you less productive and leave you feeling tired and lethargic. Try setting a bed time routine and sticking to it.


Practice The Art Of Mindfulness
