How You Can Tweak Your Current Lifestyle Now To Incorporate Top Healthy Habits

If you’ve been feeling sluggish, stressed out, or simply not at the top of your game, you may be looking for easy ways to improve your lifestyle for better health. Fortunately, you don’t need to overhaul your current lifestyle – simply making some targeted tweaks and incorporating key habits can help. Whether you work outdoors on the West Coast or in an office in North Grafton, Massachusetts, these rules of thumb can help you adapt to a healthier lifestyle in a pinch, presented to you by Recent Food Trends and Technology.

Explore Local Nature and Get Your Mind Off Common Stressors by Going for a Daily Walk

Time in nature is a key component of a healthy, well-rounded lifestyle. However, it can sometimes feel tough to incorporate nature time into your life, especially if you work indoors or have a busy schedule. Fortunately, you can enjoy the mental health benefits of nature just by going for a quick walk after work every day.

Whether you go with a friend or by yourself, just fifteen minutes outdoors can provide light exercise and a calming effect. For longer walks, pack a healthy snack, such as a banana or a granola bar, to keep your energy up.

Try New Health Food Trends To Keep Your Diet Both Nutritious and Interesting

If you’re bored with your current diet, adding in some trendy superfoods could spice things up while keeping your meals nutritious. For instance, some researchers say that consuming a handful of nuts every day can improve your cognitive functioning. In addition to staying hydrating, try some trending foods, such as:

  • Goji berries
  • Flaxseeds
  • Kale
  • Brazil nuts
  • Quinoa
  • Green tea
  • Kefir

Schedule Ten Minutes Into Your Morning for a Relaxing Session of Yoga or Meditation

Starting your morning with one healthy habit can set the tone for the rest of the day. Try waking up ten minutes earlier for a relaxing yoga or meditation session.

This habit can put you in a positive state of mind and relieve you of workday stress. For longer sessions, get a friend or family member involved for some social time.

Set Up a Pleasant Home Environment Designed To Support a Healthy Lifestyle

For a truly well-rounded lifestyle, having a supportive home environment is crucial. You can make some easy tweaks to your home to make it more pleasant. For instance, you can reduce stress by:

  • Setting up a small exercise station or using everyday objects, such as kitchen chairs, for workouts
  • Establishing a dedicated meditation corner for some “me time”
  • Keeping your fridge stocked with clean drinking water and high-nutrient foods
  • Putting plants, greenery, and matching decorations in each room
  • Swapping out dull lighting for more aesthetic light fixtures
  • Maintaining a cool, comfortable temperature in the house and cleaning out clutter once per week

Learn To Say “No” Sometimes To Maintain a Stronger Work-Life Balance

If a constantly packed schedule is leading to a lower quality of life, you may need to say “no” to extra work sometimes and strive for a better work-life balance. Tweak your current work-life by:

  • Setting clear-cut work hours when possible and avoiding overtime
  • Turning down additional volunteer work
  • Taking occasional personal days and using available vacation time
  • Communicate pressing concerns to your boss

If you want to live a healthier lifestyle, you don’t need to completely overhaul your current life. Instead, simply incorporate these wholesome habits into your everyday life to start feeling fit, relaxed, and better-rounded.

Kia ora! Sustainability is at the core of my soul ever since I was a kid. I always strive to finish the food on my plate and live as a minimalist. I love to cut down on waste in order to live sustainably and harmoniously with our planet. This brings me to my passion as a Food Scientist to integrate new technologies into innovative and creative solutions to meet customer demands and market trends and to optimize products and processes for quality, savings and sustainability. To these goals, I have published a Journal on my work on sustainable packaging and patented a new Antimicrobial wash. Nothing is more satisfying than working hard and smart at the workplace and playing hard outside of working hours. I enjoy rejuvenating myself through spending quality time with my two adorable kids and my awesome soul mate and getting close to nature when possible, be it gardening, tramping or going to the beach. I also love to learn about our magnificent universe and how sustainability is working in the grand scheme of things. I strongly believe that Work, Life & Balance is the key to a healthy state of mind, both physically and mentally. I look forward to making a positive difference wherever and whenever I can.
