SIMPLE DAILY HABITS FOR HEALTH, FITNESS AND WELLNESS (70 OF THEM!)

One of the biggest road blocks that people tell me they have is time. We are all living in a super busy, wound up, go all day kind of world. Getting in eating healthy and workouts and stress reduction can actually be a challenge when you're trying to juggle work, family, relationships and more. 
I was talking with one of our fitness retreat guests the other day and she wanted simple, broken down ideas of what she could do immediately when she returned home. Change seemed overwhelming for her and I know it is for many other people too. So I decided to create this easy list of 70 simple daily habits to give you ideas of what you can do right now to make small changes in your daily routine.

My goal was to have you pick one from any of the three categories below to focus on for that day. You can continue to practice the same habit or you can choose a different one each day. You can extend to a week if you'd prefer. Either way, the list was created to show you that there are many different little tweaks you can make to make a difference in your health and wellness. Focus on what you need most and what feels good for you!


70 HEALTHY HABITS TO PRACTICE

FITNESS & MOVEMENT

Make time for recovery (stretch, foam roll, dynamic flexibility) 
Try a new workout 
Change your current workout (tempo, sets, reps, weight, interval time, etc) 
Take your workout outside 
Track your progress so you know what's working and what isn't

Something is better than nothing (even 5 minutes) 
Take advantage of vacation time and get in regular workouts 
Try an outdoor activity instead of a conventional workout (go paddle boarding, cycling, hiking, cross country skiing) 
If it causes you pain, don't do it (injury pain) 
If you have injuries - seek out a professional to fix the root of the issue 
Challenge yourself a little more today than you did yesterday 
Help a friend get to the gym if they're lacking motivation 
If you can't get to the gym, do a workout at home (push ups, squats, lunges, jumping jacks, plank, bridge, and the list goes on... ) 
Take the stairs 
Park in the space furthest away from the building 
Use a standing desk or appropriate area where you can stand 
Get up every 15-30 minutes to walk around the office or the building 
Break a sweat

TO SUM IT UP

Change is hard. I think we can all agree on that. Small, simple steps can lead up to big change if you're willing to be consistent. Start small. That's why I created this list - so you can get an idea of the little things you can implement today or tomorrow that will enhance your health, fitness and wellness. Do what you can with where you're at.
