With the current situation that the COVID-19 is everywhere, I suggest the simple ways to focus on making you feel healthier.
Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
It estimates that 3 out of 4 persons are walking around chronically dehydrated. It is unfortunate, bad news considering that water makes up 60 – 70% of your body and affects every corner of health and well-being—including metabolism, detoxification, digestion, inflammation, appearance, and cognitive function, to name a few.
Fill nutritional gaps with a multivitamin! Experts agree that there is a nutritional gap between today’s diet and what we need for optimal health, and researchers concur that everyone should be taking a daily multivitamin because it offers safe, simple micronutrient insurance.
Stock your kitchen with all the best tools! It isn’t as sexy as other fat-burning and metabolism-boosting tips, but if you genuinely want to eat healthy consistently, you need to make sure you have all the tools you’ll need to prepare meals at home. For cutting boards, have different color plastic for a different purpose.
For pots, pans, and other storage containers, using glass, ceramic, and stainless steel are the best options with the least toxicants. Other essentials include a pressure cooker or slow cooker, blender, and good knives.
Choose a workout routine and find an accountability partner!
Surely you’ve heard the saying if you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Well, that holds for your fitness regimen as well. Make sure you have a progressive exercise program that’s appropriate for your fitness level and experience and conducive to your goals.
Also, find an accountability partner—a trainer, friend, spouse to help keep you on track and to help push yourself.
Know your temptations and alternatives to satisfy them!
Despite the best-laid plans and good intentions, temptations will strike. Identify any triggers that you can—time of day, emotions, stress, people, places, etc.—and prepare contingency plans.
One of the biggest keys to overcoming temptation is mindfulness. Don’t rely on will power alone. Come up with solutions. Have healthy snacks handy. Practice meditation and deep breathing, read a book, take a walk.
Commit to a consistent self-care routine!
No matter what you do, make time and space for yourself and a self-care routine. It’s not selfish. Investing in yourself means you can serve others more effectively and genuinely.
There’s no one-size-fits-all self-care routine. Consider a gratitude journal, meditation, yoga, taking a walk, etc.
Live your life; love your life. Make each day your FEELGOODX day.
