Stay Healthy: 10 Habits of Healthy & Happy People + America's Biggest Health Fair!


It's true... I'll admit that I've been known to be the girl that sits out during sporty activities and I've been hit in the face by things that were thrown at me... So I may not be the definition of athletic, but I am always working to maintain my fitness! Whether I'm trying to get my zen on while practicing yoga or sneaking in some cardio after a busy day running errands, I try to make sure I live a healthy lifestyle.

How to Stay Healthy: 10 Habits of Healthy & Happy People + America's Biggest Health Fair!

1. Choose Wisely - This is a simple step but one of the hardest to take, to live a healthy lifestyle one has to choose foods that fuel your body. Foods like vegetables, fruits, proteins, etc are what your body really needs, while carbs, fats, and sugars should only be eaten in moderation. I love shopping for my fruit and veggies at Walmart, they always have great deals on my favorites!

2. Elevate Your Daily Routine - This is another simple step, but this one is an easy adjustment. You must take vitamins every single day... I'm not a fan of the pill form of vitamins so I buy the gummy versions, no matter which kind you buy - just be sure to take the correct dosage every single day.

3. Monitor Your Activity - Heart Rate Monitors are a great way to make sure that you are burning a healthy amount of calories and/or taking the right amount of steps in a day to maintain or lose weight. I love my my HRM so much and I bet if you invest in one, you will love yours too!

4. Keep Things Zen - Lay out a yoga mat, put in a meditation or trance cd, and allow yourself to unwind. Let go of your worries and allow peace to fill your mind and body - this is the key to true happiness and pure health, in my opinion. A healthy, balanced mind leads to a healthy, balanced body!

5. Allow Yourself Some Me Time - Do you! Go shopping, make some awesome crafts, ride horses, or pretend your a mermaid in your neighborhood pool... whatever your heart desires! Just make sure you have time to take care of yourself and treat yourself to something you love to do!

6. Don't Obsess Over Numbers - Scales aren't the only place to achieve a healthy lifestyle victory, pay attention to the way your clothes fit or even just the amount of energy you gain - both of these factors are benefits of a healthy, happy lifestyle and definitely something to smile about!

8. Keep Things Clean - A clean house means more than a happy home, it means a healthy home which leads to healthy body. Make sure to clean counter tops, dust, sweep, and mop regularly so that your immune system isn't always battling your environment.

9. Drink Plenty of Aqua - This one is obvious but most of us are guilty of not getting enough water in each day! Grab nice, refillable water bottle next time your at Walmart and challenge yourself to drink 5 or more bottles in a day, everyday!

10. Motivate Yourself to Succeed- Buy a few items of clothing a size smaller than what you currently wear or keep an item in mind that you will buy to reward yourself when you hit a certain goal. This is a great way to motivate yourself, plus you get double the benefits once your goal is reached, you've achieved something and you also get a special treat!
