We are all well aware that our lifestyles can have a huge impact on our health. Burning the candle at both ends, getting too stressed out with work deadlines and simply not taking care of ourselves can all dramatically affect how we feel on a day to day basis. However, while it can be seen a huge task to overhaul your lifestyle completely, there are simple changes you can make that could make a massive difference to your health and wellbeing. I thought I would share with you some of the changes today, perhaps it will inspire you to implement a few of them into your routine. 

Biking or walking your commute into the workplace
Many people have a commute into the workplace, but often will rely on cars or public transport to get them to where they need to be. However, if you live close enough, why not consider walking there each day instead? That small daily exercise could make a big difference to your fitness levels, and it can help improve your stamina and health overall. If your commute is a little further, then a good option to consider would be a bike. It is definitely more of a cardio workout, but it can be a great way not only to improve fitness but also save you some running or transport costs in the long run. Invest in a decent bike and make sure you consider bike insurance if this is an option that becomes more viable to you.

Getting more sleep
Many people will agree that they would love to get more sleep, so why not make it a priority in your life? Getting a decent nights sleep, and the amount of it that you need can make a massive difference to your day and energy levels. Why not try and head to bed an hour earlier? Or simply switch off all the technology and read a book or enjoy a bath before bed. Part of the problem is that we don’t unwind the mind before trying to get to sleep, meaning we can end up with a disruptive night instead of a relaxing sleep. 

Drinking more water
Keeping your body hydrated is a great way to improve your lifestyle and health. Water is a natural detox and helps to flush out your body of bad toxins. It can improve your skin tone, aid you in a better night's sleep and even increase your energy levels naturally. There are plenty of tips online to help you get more water into your system.

Different relaxation techniques
Stress can be a huge factor in our lives and can hinder many parts of it especially our health. A lot of illness can have a root cause of stress in the beginning. This is why it can be a great change to add some simple relaxation techniques into your daily routine. Maybe consider mediation in the evening or a morning, or try out exercise options like yoga.

Improving your diet or cutting some of the bad stuff out
Finally, the food we eat can have a big impact on our health. Things like sugar, for example, can massively affect us without us even realising. Sugar is in a lot more foods than you realise, so cutting something like this out can help improve your health. You could also consider a more vegetable-rich diet, or simply cut out the convenience foods.
