Easy Ways to Stay Healthy

As I wrote about in a previous post (read it here), I have been trying lately to be a little more healthy. When this post is published, I will be on vacation but I hope to still incorporate healthier habits while on vacation! To me, it seems that it is initially harder to set myself into a healthier routine but once I do it's easier to stick to and I feel much better! I've put together some of favorite healthy habits for y'all here!

Buy a Cute Water Bottle and Use It!
I got a Lilly tumbler for my birthday and I use it all the time to drink water out of! I love straws since I drink so much more water with one! Drinking water is definitely easy to do and it is very important to be healthy!

Park Farther Away
Whenever I run errands I try to park farther away in the parking lot. You wind up burning a few more calories (and they all add up!) and you get your pick of a parking spot!

Find Healthy Alternatives
Okay, so not every food you love is healthy! I usually try to find a "cleaner" version of foods (basically less preservatives). My favorite thing right now is Rice Chips instead of regular chips. I pack them in my lunch during the school year- so yummy and they are natural!

Don't love it? Don't Splurge on It!
This is a tip that I use regularly. For example, if you don't really like the taste of a certain dessert, don't eat it just because it is there! I find myself saying this a lot at parties and events and only allow myself to eat what I know I'll love instead of eating everything (and all of the calories!)

How do you stay healthy? Let me know in the comments!
