Healthy Habits For The New Year

Now that we are in the full swing of 2018, it is time to start thinking about how to incorporate some healthy habits into our lives. Here are some of the ha it’s which you should be adding into your daily lives this year. 
1. Stock up on healthy foods
It is incredibly important if you want to stay healthy in the new year that you keep plenty of healthy options on hand. If you have a ton of fruit on the kitchen tables and veggies in the fridge ready to go, you will be much more likely to reach for those when you fancy a snack rather than reaching for the sweets. By having healthy food everywhere in your home it will be much easier for you to stay on track with your diet and avoid falling into a trap. 

2. Mindful eating

How many times each day do you sit down and enjoy your meal without distractions? When we eat while watching TV, working or playing with our phones we tend to eat much quicker and not fully enjoy the food we consume. Because of this we tend to overeat and this can cause us to put on weight. Ideally when you are eating your dinner in the evenings you want to be concentrating on what you are eating and ignore everything else. 
3. Drink water instead
Ditch the liquid calories and stick to water as much as you can. It is understandable that not everyone likes to drink water, but you can add fruit and herbs like mint to your water if you don’t feel like it tastes of anything. Drinking water instead of soda and fruit juice will have a massive effect on your diet and help your digestive system hugely. It will make a massive difference to how you feel overall and the way you live your life. 

4. Chew your food

It is crucial that you learn to chew your food thoroughly. It is not only for your digestion, but also because it will allow you to eat slower and get full much quicker. Also make sure that you pay attention to your oral hygiene and always brush your teeth for at least two minutes morning and night, you might also want to look at All You Need to Know About Teeth Whitening to make sure that your food doesn’t cause stains on your teeth permanently.

5. Snack on fruit 

If you are hungry during the day, grab an apple or a banana. Avoid buying bags of crisps or chocolate from the vending machine because these both can make a huge dent in your calorie intake for the day and won’t satisfy your hunger. Instead try eating a big bowl of fruit which contains lots of vitamins and minerals, and will you up for the afternoon without an issue. 

6. Eat colourful food

Stay away from the plate of beige and brown food, and instead swap this for foods with vibrant colours. Fruits and vegetables are full of different vitamins and minerals depending on their colours which is why you want to be eating a range of colours every single day. For example having a salad with leafy greens, antioxidant containing red veggies and yellow starches can make your body feel much more energised and healthy.
