5 Tips for a Healthier Lifestyle

Hey loves! Today I am collabing with my sweet friend Katarina from Fashiions Finest again. We’ve come up with 10 tips for a healthier lifestyle. I will be sharing five and Kat will be sharing five over on Fashiions Finest.

Unplug

I think this is something everyone should do more often. We get so caught up in social media and texting that we lose reality. I’m not saying turn your phone off for 24 hours, but start with 30 minutes. In those 30 minutes try being present and taking that time for yourself. Whether you use that time for reflection, meditation, a bubble bath or whatever it may be, make sure you’re doing something positive and for yourself.

Read More Books

I was never into reading in high school, and I think it was because of how forced reading was for me. Having to go home and read multiple chapters of a book I had no interest in really deterred me from picking up a book. Now that I am in college and take zero reading classes I find myself wanting to read. I promise that if you find the right book for you, you will not want to put it down! Reading is a great way to unwind and relax, so if you don’t have time to read during the day, do it before bed every night! Some of my favorites are “I Had a Nice Time and Other Lies” “Pillow Thoughts” and “Girl Boss

Drink More Water

This is a given! If you want to be healthier you need to drink water. Water does so many great things for your health, skin, and even mood. Drink only water for two weeks and see how much of a difference it makes.

Try a Workout Class

I know working out isn’t everyones thing, but a workout class is a great way to get healthier. Doing group fitness is fun because you get to interact with other people who all have the same goal, to be healthier. If you check out your local gym I’m sure you will find a number of group fitness activities. Even use yelp and search yoga studios near you, or whatever type of exercise that interests you.

Get Outside

Try doing something outside at least once a week. Whether you go on a walk, hike, kayaking anything. I swear that just being outside on a sunny day just boosts your mood. Who doesn’t love to be in a good mood?
