Healthy living means different things to different people, but there are some simple habits that can help you lead a more balanced, energised life, every single day — no matter what your goals are.
Just follow these simple tips daily.
Drink more water
Let’s start with the really obvious one. Most of us don’t meet the quota when it comes to our liquid intake, but water is so important for living a healthy life.
Many doctors recommend we drink roughly two litres of water every day, and if you’re falling short of that, try these quick tips to up your water intake.
Pay attention to your meals
Take 10 or 15 minutes to eat your meal distraction free. This will really allow you to enjoy what you’re eating, taste the food, and most importantly, recognise when you are feeling full, so that you don’t over eat.
Enjoy some fresh air
Getting fresh air is so important for mental health. Even if it is just getting out of the office for 10 minutes at lunchtime to take a walk, that small break can leave you feeling re-energised and put you back in a positive mood.
Find ways to stay active
Keeping active is the key to a healthy life, but with our busy and hectic lives, that’s sometimes easier said than done. Instead, try to fit small bursts of exercise into your day for shorter intervals.

Eat your vegetables
You should try to include at least three to five vegetables and three fruits in your daily diet, to make sure you’re getting enough vitamins and minerals from your diet.
Eat dark chocolate
Yes, you heard that one correctly. Eating dark chocolate with 85% cocoa is actually very good for you. The fats in dark chocolate are a great source of energy!
Make sure you’re sleeping enough
