Whether it’s looks, personality, knowledge, diet or skills, everyone wants to improve in at least one aspect of their lives. But of course, with anything that seems like work, we as human beings tend to put these tasks off for “later.” Eventually, later never comes and we’re still the same as we were before.
A large reason for this is that a lot of these tasks are too large or daunting to fit into our already busy lives. Completely changing your diet isn’t as easy as drinking a bit more water. The same way heading to the gym every day is much more daunting than a simple afternoon walk every second day.
The trick is to start small and work your way up. In light of this, here are five small things you can do to improve your health, wealth and happiness, all in bite-sized paragraphs that are as small as the tasks they outline.
Water and Green Tea
There’s simply nothing healthier – and cheaper. Fill a bottle of water in the morning and set yourself the goal of finishing it before the day ends. Then, treat your taste buds to some healthy green tea. Don’t forget that green tea tastes best (and is healthier) without milk or sugar.
Try Modern Health Foods
Thanks to recent advances in science and technology, even lab-developed supplements are trusted to give your body what it needs. Whether it be energy, concentration or vitamins, it’s worth checking out the companies that provide supplements to help you where you need it. Check out the Le-Vel Reviews for an idea of what others think of these products.
Sleep More (Or Less)
Ironically, nobody really knows why we need sleep. But it’s a well-known fact that we do need an adequate amount of it. Between 6 and 8 hours is ideal for the average person. Experiment a little and see what works best for you, then implement a strict sleep schedule for yourself to follow. Your skin, muscles and brain will thank you for it.
If You Can’t Run, Walk
Putting on your best Nikes and blazing through the streets is not for everyone. So as healthy as running is, walking is a fair alternative that should at least get you on your feet until you can muster up the willpower to increase your speed. Bring along your favorite audiobook or podcast if you feel it’ll be too boring.
Whether you like to admit it or not, endlessly scrolling through your Facebook feed is far from healthy. If you’re not willing to delete your account, at least limit yourself by installing a dedicated app that locks your phone for a certain time period, giving you all the more reason to get out there and converse with people the traditional way.
At the end of the day, you can accomplish your larger, long-term goals. Just like homework, the hardest part is getting started. But from there onwards it’s smooth sailing.
