The 8 simple lifestyle habits

1. Spend time every day managing your emotions.

Proper management of emotions is vital for a healthy body and mind. Whether you do it on getting up in the morning or before retiring at night time, one should prevent emotions getting put of control.

2. Eat five servings of vegetables every single day.

Regarding this, Leanne says:

Eat five servings of vegetables every day,’

She stresses:

Not five vegetables. Five servings.’

And one serving is half a cup of cooked green or orange vegetable. Try to be colorful in choosing vegetables. Incorporate all colors in your daily diet. Vegetables of colors orange, red, green, purple, yellow etc. are good for the body. Their micronutrients prevent chronic diseases and cancer.

Research states that one should eat 30 different kinds of plant produce in a week. This will be nutritious and also prevent boredom. Hence, pick up variety of fruits and vegetables the next time you shop at your local grocery shop or supermarket.

3. Get up at 5am and spend an hour on your goals every single morning.

Early wakeup is essential. The dietitian states:

‘Get up at 5am and spend an hour on your goals every morning,’

At that time, there would be lesser distractions and focus would be better.

4. Learn to meditate.

Sitting in a quiet area of the house or garden and thinking or concentrating on breathing would help relax and achieve peace of mind. This you could do in the early morning and after your morning chores.

5. Cook 90 per cent of your meals at home.

Eating outside food means eating unhealthily. This is because most prepared and packaged outside foods are high in saturated fats, sugars and salts. That is why they are called HSSS foods. Try to limit this to an occasional meal or treat. Instead, cook at home majority of the time using nutritious ingredients. This will ensure healthy eating.

6. Read every day.

Do some reading every day even if it is for only less than half an hour.

7. Strength train to get strong rather than to burn calories.

The aim of people going to the gym should be to not only burn calories but to build and maintain muscles too. The training should melt the fat but retain muscles and its strength. Muscle mass loss occurs with age. One should train to be stronger and not just to lose weight.
