What if you start saying, “Have a healthy day!”? Usually, we all hear, “Have a good day,” which is nice, but let’s change the game by being specific with some tips to have a healthier day instead.
Some Healthy Day Tips
While there is a whole list of things that will help, here are 5 easy ways to change up the day so that you have a good start on your healthier days.
#1 Prep Your Food for the Day
Preparing food ahead of time is a way to ensure that you have good healthy food with you. Food prep removes the chance to grab fast food lunch, reach for unhealthy choices, or skip meals. Create a meal plan ahead of time, cook, and organize that food, and then you save time later. This is an excellent healthy practice.
#2 Eat Your Breakfast Daily
Breakfast is a healthy start. Eating a well-balanced breakfast fuels your body and gets you ready for the day. Going without food fuel in the morning increases the chance you will reach for other snacky foods. Missing the meal could have you feeling irritable, tired, and hungry.
#3 Drink Water
Drop the diet soda off the menu and fill up a water bottle. Make a goal of eight 8oz glasses of water each day and then increase that. Water is beneficial to the body for many reasons, including flushing toxins and suppressing hunger. Invest in a quality refillable bottle and carry that with you.
#4 Don’t Forget to Eat your Veggies
Meals can be made healthier with more vegetables added. Increase the amount and variety of veggies that you consume daily. Have a goal of using additional vegetables at each meal.
#5 Have your Snacks Prepacked
Make good choices with your snacks instead of quick runs to the vending machine, convenience store, or fast-food drive-through. It is an excellent plan to have fruit, veggies, unsalted nuts, or hard-boiled eggs. Be careful of prepackaged energy bars. Be sure you read the ingredients.
