Healthy Habits

healthy habitsI think it’s safe to say that we can all point out at least 5 bad habits we have, regardless of if those bad habits are akin to biting nails, or leaving the dishes out at night!

But, what about healthy habits, and are we able to point out any of those?

It has been proven that we are more likely to do things that we make into habits.

This is why it’s so much easier to stick to exercising once we have established a routine that we have stuck to it for three works or more.

This is why we are able to get into habits a lot easier than we are able to get out of them and this is why it’s important to establish healthy habits rather than unhealthy ones.

 As such we thought it was important to establish some handy healthy habits that everyone can incorporate into their lives, no matter how rushed off of your feet you are, or how crazy your shift pattern is!

[1] Carry around a bottle of water! 

No matter how busy you are, it’s important to keep yourself hydrated.

Carrying around a bottle of water means that you are more likely to reach for it and get the recommended daily intake of water to keep your body functioning at an optimal level.

Drinking water is also great for your skin and can even stop you from snacking.

 2. Swap the chocolate and biscuits for fruit!

If someone in the office is always bringing in chocolate and biscuits make sure you have some fruit on your desk to munch on.

This means that you’re more likely to get your 5 a day and it will leave you feeling much more energised and a lot less groggy after the sugar has worn off!

 3. Eat breakfast!

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, it helps kick-start your metabolism, stops you from snacking mid-morning and gives you the required energy to start the day.
