When lockdown happened, survival mode kicked in and comfort eating was something most were guilty of, even I enjoyed more cakes than usual! Cakes, sweet treats and anything laden with carbs didn’t actually help anyone make sense of what was happening, but they sure did taste good!
The worldwide pandemic has certainly been a wake up call when it comes to health though and many will now be considering how to improve health and wellbeing. There is no need to worry, there are so many small changes you can make to your lifestyle that will make a huge difference to your overall health. Let’s have a look at some suggestions you can easily do from home!
How To Improve Your Health and Wellbeing
Eat Healthy Foods
Lockdown lovehandles are a real thing! Unfortunately, for as great as comfort eating is, it isn’t great for our waist lines! If you want a healthier lifestyle, take into consideration that it’s 80% what you put in, 20% what you do. So small changes to the foods you eat, how much you eat and how often can all have a great effect on weight loss! Find a diet that suits your lifestyle, you should never feel like you are missing out as that in turn will only make you resent the diet. I have found that Keto works very well for me, though the lack of carbs isn’t for everyone. Check out some of my favourite easy to make Keto recipes here to find out more!
Invest in good trainers
You may not fancy sweating it out in a gym right now, but there is nothing stopping you and your family getting outdoors and having fun! Whether you choose a hike or a run, investing in a good pair of trainers will help to spur you on! Getting outdoors on foot allows you to experience things you may have never noticed before and best of all? It’s free!
If you are a smoker, now is the best time to kick that habit once and for all! If you feel you cannot go cold turkey, then looking into vape kits is a really helpful transition. Check out an online vape store or two in order to familiarise yourself with what you need to get started and make that change today!
Grab a good kip
A good night’s sleep can really do wonders for your overall health and wellbeing. Sleep allows your body to heal and take some time off from what the world throws at us. Whilst stress has been a huge factor for restless nights over the past few months, there are ways to beat stress in order to sleep well! Meditation, soaking in the bath and switching off from screen time are just a few suggestions to help you de-stress before bed and all help to improve your overall health and wellbeing.
