Healthy Habits You Can Start Today

There is so much emphasis on starting new habits with the new year, but there’s no need to wait until January. Try adding some “clean” habits to your daily life that could improve your health.  It’s as easy as doing one or two things differently every day for self-care. Any day is a good day to start! I just started living my healthy life again and just today walked 5 kms before breakfast. I love how good I feel when I am more active as well.

Here are a few healthy habits I want to instate this spring that you can consider:

  1. It’s not summer, but there’s still sun. We often think of sunscreen on hot summer days before we hit the beach or pool, but we don’t consider it enough year-round. We sometimes shy away from applying sunscreen daily because it can take long to absorb, or leaves an unwanted residue. That’s why Coppertone has developed ClearlySheer Whipped and WaterBabies Whipped. Both absorb quickly, leave skin hydrated and provide SPF 50 protection from UVA/UVB rays so you and your family can stay protected all year round.

  1. Take advantage of the outdoors. As it gets nicer outside, it tends to become easier to keep (or restart) your New Year’s resolution to be more active. Working out does not always have to be in a gym or be strenuous activity. Walk around your neighbourhood, catch the blooming cherry blossoms or go on a hike. If you do strain your muscles, treat your pain with ALEVE Back & Body Pain. One pill gives you up to 12 hours of relief from muscle pain, body pain and headaches.

  1. Take time to meditate. This may sound daunting, but it only takes a few minutes a day to practice meditation and focus your mind. There are many kinds of meditation and apps you can use to get started. Meditation can help center you before the day begins, or after a long day.
  2. Pay attention to your body. Life is so hectic, and we often ignore obvious symptoms of our body telling us something is off. Many ailments can be treated early and at home so when your body is trying to tell you something, listen up! A common example for women is Bacterial Vaginosis (BV). BV affects so many women, but it’s easy to ignore symptoms like abnormal discharge or an unpleasant odour when life gets busy. CanesBalance is an easy and effective at-home treatment that can relieve unwanted symptoms and prevent future recurrences.

Spring has sprung, and I hope you’ll join me in adopting new healthy habits as the weather warms and days get longer. They say it takes doing something for a month for it to become a habit. I really hope I can keep on  the healthy track and have some positive changes before summer rolls around.

Tell me what habit you’d like to add to your routine.

  1. Great tips! Sunscreen is a total must especially now that the days are longer. Always have my sunscreen on, all year round.

  2. I would love to be able to take advantage of the outdoors. But…it’s still below freezing here! Any solutions for that?!

  3. Jessica Taylor says:

    I always put sunscreen on the kids, even when we aren’t going anywhere particularly sunny! I am so nervous about sun exposure!

  4. Yup, I always have sunscreen on hand. It’s so important! I also love to read. That’s what helps calm me down since I tend to get the giggles when I try to meditate.

  5. I really need to start going for walks and just spending time outdoors, I could do with some exercise at this rate.

  6. I need to get better at the sunscreen. I hate taking time to apply it.

  7. I find that my smartwatch REALLY helps me get my activity for the day. Keeping track of steps, calories, heart rate, etc.. It gives me goals to complete and it truly motivates me to park a little farther away next time or only get 1 ice cream cone. 😉
    Thanks for the tips!

  8. Love all these great tips, I’m going to make more time to go walks!

  9. I have been so bad with healthy living to be honest. I have been eating junk food and skipping exercise for so long! Small healthy habits to take will really help!

  10. i cant agree more when it comes to meditation! it is surely something very important to me both to start and end the day!

  11. This reminds me to just do little things to feel better. Sometimes my depression stops me from being very productive so this is great advice. Thanks!

    Lots of great tips and suggestions in here. Using sunscreen is very important to me and for our kids. The dangers of the sun is nothing to fool around with.

  17. I should definitely start to use some sunscreen, it is better to be safe that sorry when it comes to those uv rays!

  18. It really is important that we are taking care of our bodies and using the proper products. Sunscreen is a must that’s for sure but it’s also important that we meditate and take the time out to listen to our bodies! Great advice thank you.

  19. Great tips here! I need to start living healthier. I love yoga but sometimes you need more cardio in your life to make things balance out.

  21. I have started exercising, eating right and increasing my water intake, too. Will try some of your suggestions too 🙂

  22. Yes! These are all great tips! Especially meditation- I think there is a huge mind-body connection with this and I’m working on this skill.

  23. These are some awesome ideas for healthy habits you can take up at any time of year. It can just make a small change to take a big impact on how everything about you feels.

  24. Yeah that first one is a healthy habit I could put into practice now. I definitely need to be ready for when the summer comes with my daughter.
