25 Healthy Habits to Create for A Life Time Part 3
#11 Get To Bed Early & Wake Up Early
There are many health benefits for early risers that tend to go to bed earlier too and more likely get 7-9 hours of sleep. Restorative sleep is necessary for weight loss, healing and hormone balance.
The best part about waking up earlier before everyone else is YOU time. Time to meditate, exercise, stretch, plan and visualize your day. Give it a try, you will love it!
#12 Take The Stairs
Always opt for the stairs instead of the escalator. Taking the stairs engages different muscles for strong, shapely legs, a perky booty and can even elevate your heart rate.
#13 Break Your fast With Protein
Breakfast is called breakfast for a reason. You break your fast of no food. How you break your fast is important. If you are trying to lose weight or maintain weight your breakfast should be mostly protein and fats with zero or less than 10 carbs in the morning.
When you eat carbs in the morning you have a tendency to snack throughout the day and crave carbs. The keto diet/template is a good one to follow for morning meals.
#14 Walk More
A worthy daily goal is 10,000 steps which equates to about 60-75 minutes of walking. A 20 -30 minute walk in the morning and evening is a great way to get in 10,000 steps. You can park farther, take the stairs, walk the kids to school and partner up with some friends for a walk and talk.
#15 Keep Your Bedroom Sacred
Your bedroom is a sacred space and is for S & S (Sex & Sleep). Remove electronics including your clock, television, ipad, computer and phone. Quality restorative sleep is vital for healing your hormones, anti-aging, supporting your immune system, fat burning and building muscle.
