Among work, kids, social activities, and lots of other obligations, finding enough time to practice healthy habits can often go by the wayside. But you don't need a gym or tons of spare time to live healthy, you just need to modify and improve upon things you already do. Use these simple tricks to start living a healthier lifestyle today.
Don’t Let Your Mood Determine Your Food
It’s really easy to reach for that stale doughnut leftover from the company breakfast at 3 p.m. when you’re stressed and just want something sweet to get you through the rest of the day, but it’s important to fight that urge. Eating unhealthy comfort foods may make you feel better in the short term, but will set you up later to feel equally as stressed on top of the guilt you'll feel for giving into your craving. If you know you’ll want something sweet during the second half of you day, opt for fruit, Greek yogurt drizzled with honey, or a small square of dark chocolate to satisfy your sweet tooth and keep you energized.
