4 Ways I’m Becoming Healthier

We all make that same New Years’ Resolution to become healthier every year.  This summer I got on top of that and started doing things that are good for my mind and body.

Ways I'm Becoming Healthier | Born To Be Bright

We all know how important it is to drink a lot of water, but sometimes it’s hard to fit it into our routines.  I wrote a post last week on 3 ways to up your water intake and those tips have helped me go from 8 oz. a day to about 48-64 oz.  My skin looks brighter, my hair grows faster, my nails are stronger, and I have so much more energy.

Exercising is something that I enjoy but usually don’t have the motivation to do.  Blogilates is a great YouTube channel that’s full of amazing home workouts that are only a few minutes long.

Making sure to get outside has helped me a lot just in feeling happier.  I start feeling a bit blue when I spend the day inside.  The easiest way to go outside when I don’t feel like it is to do something I was already going to do, like read a book, and sit in my back yard.  I love just being outside so that’s a great way to get outside.  Get together with a friend and take a walk, even if it’s to an ice cream place.

I’ve tried to eat healthier, although it might seem ~*trendy*~ I enjoyed smoothie bowls this summer.  They are so full of fruit and taste so good while being good for me.  For lunch I occasionally cut up a ton of fruits and vegetables instead of eating mac n’ cheese.  I feel so good when I eat really healthfully so I need to make that more of a habit.

I love how you can watch what you’re putting into your body when you make things from scratch.  Who knows what half of the ingredients are in prepackaged foods but I can name everything I put in my meals.  If you’re looking to cut down on sugar or salt , cooking your own meals is the easiest way.

    Good job! I go in and out of being healthy but drinking a lot of water and cutting out fried food and overly unhealthily crap is what I normally do.

    • I get like that a lot too, it’s easiest to try to get one new habit really solid at a time. First get drinking water hammered into your routine, then start eating more fresh foods, then work small amounts of exercise in. That’s how I’m trying to go about it right now. Thank you for commenting!
