Own these 6 healthy habits women do daily…and feel amazing!
Add these healthy habits to your daily routine, today ladies. They are not at all complicated nor time-consuming. I do most really well, but still working on mastering a few of them, like “put down the phone.” That one is something I’m working on now. Which of these healthy habits are you doing now?
1. Habits Women Do Include Taking Vitamins Every Day
It’s hard to eat healthy every day. I know, I’m there. But if you can’t or don’t eat healthy regularly, consider adding a multivitamin to your daily regimen. And, certainly, with all these fad diets around, it’s easy not to get the nutrition you need. Also, consider taking Vitamin D3 if you aren’t getting much sunlight. It’s worth the extra cost.
2. Floss Daily And Do it Well
Hasn’t your dentist told you to floss daily? Mine has – every time I see him! No matter how well we love our toothpaste and we use the best toothbrush out on the market, there’s still food that gets stuck in between the teeth. No one wants gingivitis, and flossing is an excellent way to prevent getting gum disease. One more step to flossing is using mouthwash. Mouthwash can help leave your mouth feeling fresh and clean. doTerra makes a wonderful (my affiliate link) Mouthwash made from their signature essential oil, On Guard.
3. Hug Often
I’m a hugger. I hug my friends I haven’t seen in a while. I’ll even hug you if I saw you yesterday. It’s known that by hugging, you release oxytocin which is responsible for that warm and fuzzy feeling. It also helps with the trust issue some of us feel.
4. Put Down The Phone
At bedtime, try to put down the phone and turn off the TV. Playing those silly games on my phone, like the game of Solitaire, puts me to sleep. But my husband would prefer I talk to him. However, if you’re always checking FB or IG, you might be stimulating your mind too much to fall asleep. AND, we need our sleep!
5. Drink More Water
Well, we’ve heard this a time or two. Okay, now I’m preaching. If you’re still drinking sodas, then you’re putting your health at risk. I can honestly tell you I do not drink sodas. I’ve never been big on drinking any, so it’s easy for me to stop for good.
6. Take Time Out For YOU
Do one thing every day that makes you happy. I’m not giving examples here because we are all different. Whatever it is that makes you happy, do it every day. It might be two or three things. Do one every day! AND don’t feel bad about it.
And, if I could pop in a seventh habit – travel often!!
