Living a healthier lifestyle is a great first step in being healthy and staying healthy. Even making small changes in your normal routine can help. Here are some tips on how to start living a healthier lifestyle.
Tips to Start a Healthy Lifestyle
Get that beauty sleep. The majority of adults require 7-8 hours of sleep a night. I know, I know, being a parent means that sometimes 7-8 hours of uninterrupted bliss is a magical unicorn that you have never seen nor experienced. The beneits of getting enough sleep, when you can, are undeniable.
Health.gov shares that the body thrives on not only enough sleep but quality sleep as well. The benefits include healthier weight, improved mood, clearer thinking, as well as lowering your risk for serious health problems such as high blood pressure and diabetes. So do your best to catch those z’s.
No I don’t mean alcohol. Your body is about 60% water and consuming enough water each day can help eliminate waste from the body according to the CDC. If your are in climates with a higher temperature or you exercise you need even more water. So drink up.
Improve your overall gut health
Want a healthy immune system and gut? Then make sure that you focus on supporting your gut microbiome. One way to do this is by using products that contain Epicor and probiotics like Align’s Kombucha on-the-go.
Epicor is a fermentate. By tapping into the natural power of fermentation, Epicor delivers immune and gut health benefits in an easy to take product. Currently, I am using the Align Probiotic Kombucha on the go packets. These are perfect to mix in with water and take on the go with you for a little immune boost and dose of Epicor.

Reap all the mood boosting, cardiovascular benefits of getting out and exercising. For me, I love spin classes and walking. For you, it may be yoga and ultra marathons; no judgement. Whatever exercise you enjoy, get out and do it. Also, don’t be afraid to mix it up you may find something you love in the process.
As a family we love getting out to hike and it is a great way to get the kids out as well to exercise! You can find lots of hikes in your area as well.
Focus on Nutrition
Processed foods and extra sugar is bad. We all know this, yet we continue to eat it. Focus on getting whole foods, think fruits and vegetables, into your diet and limit the high sugar items such as soda and cookies. Your body will thank you.
