My kids start school in a couple weeks and the beginning of the school year kind of like the beginning of a calendar year is a great time to form new habits. There are certain things that I have started doing over the years and continued to do that I truly feel like have made a huge difference in my life. I thought I would share these 6 daily habits that will change your life too if you integrate them into your routine!
6 Daily Habits That Will Change Your Life
- Waking up early and moving my body: I am a big morning person and doing a workout first thing is really good for my mental health. Also, I find I am more productive during the day as well. I always try to wake up and start working out by 6!
- Lowering my sugar/carb intake: I notice when I do not eat many carbs and sugars (other than the natural carbs/sugars of fruit) my body reacts completely differently when I overload on those things. Don’t get me wrong I love bread, pasta, and cookies but in moderation and not every day.
- Night before prepping: I do not mean just food. Yes, I make my kids’ school lunches the night before but I also mean laying out their clothes for the next day, making sure their backpacks are packed, laying out my clothes, and cleaning up the house. I love waking up in the morning to a clean house, and everything prepped and ready. It takes SO MUCH stress away from mornings.
- Delegating: Delegating both for work and life (I have a VA, partnerships manager, and of course, Jenny my photographer when I have a campaign. Andrew also helps with a ton. When it comes to our house we have a house cleaner that comes weekly and we rely on things like Walmart + deliveries etc for groceries.
- Focusing on water intake: I am not perfect at this by ANY means. I try really hard to drink about 80oz of water a day. I notice the more water I drink the less I get migraines which is something I really struggle with. Drinking enough water is also very important for your skin! Obsessed with this Simple Modern water bottle.
- Vitamins: I went a lot of years not taking vitamins. Pretty much most of my life until I was about 25. At 25 I started daily vitamins and fish oil (I do not eat fish). Then in the past 5 years I have added other vitamins that I was lacking: B, D, Probiotics, etc. I feel like overall since then I have felt a lot healthier. I am someone who is very Vitamin D deficient so having that supplement helps a ton. I suggest getting blood work with your Dr to make sure you aren’t lacking in any vitamins. They could be causing other issues you don’t know about.
