Here at PROLOOK, health and fitness are 2 things that are very important to us. This year, we’re making it a company-wide goal to better our wellness and we’re extending that invitation to you. However, we know that it’s not always easy to change your lifestyle to a healthy one, so we compiled a list of 6 simple things you can start doing right now that will improve your health – the best part? They are simple and easy! Check it out:
1. Get half to-go, right away!
On average, restaurant proportions are too big for a single meal. As soon as you order, tell your waiter that you want half of your meal to-go. Your meal will come out half the size and you have a meal for later as well! Overeating is the fast track to an unhealthy lifestyle, avoid huge amounts of caloric intake with this simple trick.
2. Track your steps
You can do this with a pedometer, a fit bit, an Apple watch, or even your phone! Seeing how many steps you are taking a day will motivate you to take even more steps. Aim for 10,000 steps and you’re on the right track!
3. Match your liquid consumption with water consumption
It’s hard to give up your beloved diet coke, or any other favorite drink that you have. A quick and easy way to amp up your health is to match your liquid consumption with water consumption. Meaning, for every can of Diet Coke you drink, you must also drink one bottle of water. Of course, the end goal is to drink way more water than anything else, but chances are – you’re not drinking enough water to start with. So match your water consumption for a good start!
4. Don’t even buy the snacks!
When you’re at the grocery store – just avoid the unhealthy snacks and candy. They can’t tempt you if they aren’t sitting in your kitchen.
5. Don’t always take the easy route
Park farther away, always take the stairs, if somewhere you have to be is walking distance – WALK! These little steps add up and are an easy way to be healthier and more fit!
6. When looking for something to eat – go for the fridge!
Items that need to be refrigerated are usually healthier than foods found in your pantry or in your freezer. On average, there are usually fewer preservatives in your food that needs to be refrigerated and your refrigerator usually consists of more whole, natural foods. So when in doubt – fridge it out.
So there you have it – 6 simple steps to better your health that you can do RIGHT NOW. It won’t cost you extra money, or even extra time. Try swapping out these simple things for a jumpstart to a healthier and happier you!
