Nothing too elaborate or groundbreaking and it easily incorporates into everyday life with little to no effort, which is why I have been able to utilize it consistently. Here is what they are:
4 Super Simple Tips for a Healthy Lifestyle
- Eat Better, Not Less.
Eating smarter is an important step to a healthy lifestyle. That includes a hearty protein-filled breakfast to jump start your day. If possible don’t skip a meal. I love food and can’t imagine life without having a few of my favorites. Instead, I am making better choices with my food.
- Add exercise to your schedule.
Life gets busy, but no matter how hectic your schedule is. Try and schedule in exercise, maybe 15 minutes a day. Add exercise to your calendar as a repeat event.

- Be strategic about meal planning.
Meal planning an essential part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle but don’t let the idea scare you off. I’ve mastered the lazy mom’s guide to meal planning. For starters, I make sure my pantry is filled with all the basics – beans, quinoa, brown rice, corn, pasta, seasonings, etc. Then I spend a few minutes planning recipes around those, adding proteins and anything else as I see fit.
- Make sleep a priority.
Research shows that we need an average of 8 hours of sleep a day. It’s important to our health. If we don’t get enough sleep, it could negatively affect our health. Sadly, this is one area, I am still working feverishly hard to accomplish.
There you have it. If you do these every day, you will be one step closer to living a healthy lifestyle.
