Want to feel great? 5 easy actions that could change your life!

Feeling great doesn't have to be complicated. By making small, intentional changes to your daily routine, you can significantly improve your health and overall wellbeing. Here are five easy actions to start with:

1. Reset Your Circadian Rhythm

Why it matters:  Your circadian rhythm regulates your sleep-wake cycle, influencing your energy levels, mood, and overall health.

How to do it:

  • Consistent Sleep Schedule: Go to bed and wake up at the same time every day, even on weekends - but don't get too strict as this can cause stress and a whole lot of other problems
  • Morning Sunlight: Spend at least 15 minutes in natural sunlight in the morning to signal your body that it's time to wake up - definitely a morning walk.  Ditch the makeup and coffee.  Get up, throw on something (other than PJs), drink a big glass of water and get out the door
  • Limit Evening Screen Time: Reduce exposure to blue light from phones and computers at least an hour before bedtime to improve sleep quality.

2. Set Up a Routine That Fits Into Your Lifestyle and Practice Daily

Why it matters:  A consistent routine helps reduce stress, increase productivity, and create a sense of control over your life.

How to do it:

  • Morning Rituals:  Start your day with activities that energize you, such as a short workout, meditation, or a healthy breakfast.
  • Task Scheduling:  Prioritise tasks and set specific times for work, breaks, and leisure.
  • Evening Wind-Down:  Establish a calming pre-sleep routine, such as reading, journaling, or a warm bath.

3. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

Why it matters:  Staying hydrated is crucial for maintaining energy levels, cognitive function, and overall health.

How to do it:

  • Daily Water Intake:  Aim for at least 8 glasses (about 2 liters) of water per day.
  • Infused Water:  Make hydration more enjoyable by adding slices of lemon, cucumber, or mint to your water.
  • Hydration Reminders:  Use apps or set alarms to remind yourself to drink water throughout the day.

4. Move Your Body

Why it matters:  Regular physical activity boosts your mood, improves cardiovascular health, and helps maintain a healthy weight.

How to do it:

  • Short Workouts:  Incorporate 10-15 minute exercise routines into your day, such as brisk walking, yoga, or bodyweight exercises.
  • Active Breaks:  Take short breaks to stretch or walk around, especially if you have a sedentary job.
  • Fun Activities:  Choose activities you enjoy, like dancing, hiking, or playing a sport, to make movement a regular part of your routine.

5. Eat to Beat Disease 80% of the Time

Why it matters:  A balanced diet rich in nutrients supports your immune system, reduces inflammation, and lowers the risk of chronic diseases.

How to do it:

  • Whole Foods:  Focus on eating whole, unprocessed foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats.
  • Healthy Swaps:  Replace sugary snacks with nuts, seeds, or fresh fruit.
  • Meal Prep:  Plan and prepare meals ahead of time to ensure you have healthy options available, reducing the temptation for unhealthy choices

Implementing these five easy actions can lead to significant improvements in your health and wellbeing. By resetting your circadian rhythm, establishing a daily routine, staying hydrated, moving your body, and eating to beat disease most of the time, you'll be well on your way to feeling great. Start today and experience the positive changes in your life!
