100 Ways To Improve Your Health

Health and happiness go hand-in-hand! We should all try to live a happier and healthier existence, and here are 100 ways you can do so.

  1. Set yourself small and manageable goals. We often fail when we give yourselves a mountain to climb.
  2. Focus on what you can do, rather than what you can’t.
  3. Take a bath. Baths can soothe dry skin while also helping you to relax so that you get a better night’s sleep.

  1. Start the day with protein.
  2. Sit up straight. This can increase serotonin and lower your stress hormones, as well as ensuring you do not suffer from any posture-related problems.
  3. Go on holiday – and make sure it is a relaxing one! We all need to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life now and again.
  4. Eat whole grains.
  5. Ban all electronics in bed.
  6. Practice deep breathing.
  7. Stop eating in front of the television. You will eat more if you have distractions because you are not focused on what you are consuming.
  8. Find a workout you enjoy. There are so many different ways you can work out, from dancing and cycling to cross-training and playing a competitive sport. Find something you love and you will be more likely to stick to it.
  9. Go to the dentist once every six months.
  10. Learn how to read food labels properly. Just because something says ‘low fat’ does not mean it is good for you.

  12. Make your own salad dressing.
  13. Stop judging others and you will be less judgmental of yourself.
  14. Discover your stress triggers (so you can avoid them!)
  15. Stop frowning. It makes your skin age!

  17. Learn your family medical history.
  18. Stop being afraid to ask for help.
  19. Reduce your sugar intake.
  20. View every difficulty as an opportunity. If you have made a mistake, find out where you have gone wrong, and learn from it.

  7. Post motivational quotes around the house.
