pick your habits

Pick the bare minimum habits you need to keep you healthy and never let them go. On your less busy week participate more, but on the crazy, hectic weeks do the bare minimum. Never do less than the bare minimum.

Drink Water First Thing

I drink my first 2 glasses of water every day just by taking medications and vitamins. One glass I drink while swallowing the pills, and one glass I drink just for good measure. That's a quarter of my water every day already done!

Take your vitamins to stay on the healthy track!

Until I had a toddler who caught colds so easily, I didn't realize the importance of vitamins to keep myself healthy.I KNOW I DON'T eat enough of all needed nutrients for a healthy diet.A multi-vitamin and a chewable Vitamin C have helped my immunity because I can't workout if I'm sick.

cooking with whole foods.

I was giving a diet therapy and they have you cook most all your own foods, and you use whole foods instead of packages, processed foods. It takes a little longer but I am much stronger and healthier than before.
