Feel the pressure to spend or acquire more THINGS to improve your health? What about just focusing on what’s at your fingertips FIRST.

Try actioning these 5 simple things to improve your health:

1. 💦 Drink more WATER. Water is vital to support bodily functions including nutrient transportation, detoxification + to maintain body temp.

TIP: Start the day with 2 glasses H20 before any other liquid…looking at you ☕️ 😉

2. 🏃 Get out and WALK more. Make a conscious effort to move in the windows you have available to you in the day. If you want to exercise in 2024 but haven’t been doing much – just go for a walk! It’s honestly that simple, it’s enjoyable and it’s FREE.

TIP: Take a walk around the block after meals, it’s a great way to improve insulin sensitivity and lower blood sugar levels after a meal, and not slump back to desk / couch immediately.

3. 💤 Get to bed earlier. SLEEP is low hanging fruit yet sometimes the patterns of dinner, netflix and chill take you away from grabbing it. A few more zzz can impact on your mental, emotional and physical wellbeing. If you’re someone that has regular broken sleep (*me) then getting to bed earlier at the least means you’re allowing your body to rest more and that’s something!

TIP: Create a little routine after dinner with a herbal tea and book in bed.

4. 🤗 Lock in CATCH UPS with friends IRL. Texting to keep in touch is wonderful, + important, but belly laughs &/or cries with your people in person are game changers for emotional health.

TIP: Lock in 1 catch up a week with a buddy. Even just a 30min walk or coffee.

5. ⏰ TIME BLOCK your day. It helps you maintain focus, efficiency, achieve things and reduces stress levels.

TIP: Write the plan by each hour for tomorrow – today!
