Spring is in the air! With the springtime weather, many people start looking for new ways to improve their health and be more active. Here are a few simple tips to spring into a healthier lifestyle.
Create a plan
Aim to set small and achievable goals for yourself. This could include setting a goal to exercise three to four times a week or to eat more fruits and vegetables daily.
Take advantage of the warmer weather and plan a walk or bike ride to enjoy some fresh air. Take a 15-20 minute break during your lunch to walk outside.
Eat a balanced diet
During spring, more and more fruits and vegetables are in season. So indulge yourself in new nutritious recipes and start planning out your meals.
Rethink your drink
Substitute water for sugary or alcoholic drinks to reduce calories and stay hydrated.
Get some shut-eye
Daylight savings time can throw your sleeping pattern off. Be sure to get adequate sleep as you increase your activity level this spring. Adults need at least 7 hours of sleep at night.
Prepare for springtime triggers
Spring can be a harbinger of a whole list of illnesses, including allergies, asthma, colds, flu, and Lyme disease. Be proactive in combating seasonal allergies and other illnesses this spring.
