Trying to stay healthy and living a healthy lifestyle doesn’t have to be complicated! We have just 3 tips
that we recommend, that we think can make all the difference in your daily life. JUST 3! Try them out
and hopefully you will start to see what a difference just a few changes to your routine can make!
1. “Up” your overall daily activity! You have heard “park your car in the spot that is farthest away”
or “take the stairs instead of the elevator” right? Well….these sayings are definitely something
we agree with! “Stepping” up your game, literally, in the non-exercise activity (known as N.E.A.T
(non-exercise activity thermogenesis) department can make a huge difference in what you are
able to “burn” throughout the day. These activities are NOT what you would do at the gym, but
just something you can do easily throughout your day to increase your overall movement.
2. Take one “processed” food out of your daily food intake and replace it with a green vegetable. If
you can replace just one item that comes in a package, box, wrapper, package of some sort and
replace it with a vegetable from the produce section at the supermarket you are on to
something! Doing this one simple task can dramatically improve the way your body “works”
from the inside out.
3. Relax! Try to take 30 minutes of your day away from your phone, email and meetings to either
take a walk, read a book, listen to a podcast or just sit quietly and eat your lunch alone!
Whatever it is that calms you, DO IT! Being able to “shut off” and truly relax is something that is
very difficult in the world we live in today, and actually takes a lot of practice, but is something
that is extremely important for our bodies to continue to function well and for a lifetime!
Hopefully these tips can help you in your day-to-day routine and if they are incorporated consistently we
KNOW you will absolutely feel the difference!
