6 Easy Healthy Habits to Add to Your Daily Routine

Easy Ways to Improve Your Health Day In and Day Out
Filed Under > Everyday

Ritual Vitamins, Waiting On Martha

We have the tendency to dive right into wellness topics here—some well known and some not so well known. Everyday mind-and-body wellness is something both MKR and I are both passionate about learning and always improving upon.  But sometimes we need to take a step back and get back to the basics.  

See, I can talk to you for hours about purple plates, mushroom coffee and nootropics I’m currently trying at home, but I can also forget simple healthy daily habits just like the rest!  So today I’m slowing down and revisiting six easy things that we should all be doing every day.  

From changing the way we think about multi vitamins thanks to Ritual Vitamins, getting back to setting a bedtime, and to taking the time to get outside and enjoy some fresh air in those new kicks, these healthy habits should become so in-grained in your routine that they don’t even feel like to-do’s anymore.  That’s the goal, right?!  But let’s discuss; what do you struggle with every day?  

I can sometimes forget to drink enough water if I’m on the go or somewhere new.  I also forget the simple power of walking around the block outside to get the juices flowing and give my mind a breather!  Not to mention how often I find myself reaching for my phone even when I shouldn’t be.  Is there anything you’d add to this list?  Tell us about your healthy habits in the comments below.  Cheers, Kat

Tip #1: Nourish Your Body

By now we generally understand the importance of nourishing our body with whole foods, and avoiding processed foods while working to limit sugar and alcohol. Taking a daily multi vitamin is a good, and easy, way to round out whatever the body may still be deficient in. 

Ritual came out with a visionary vitamin that has the nine essential ingredients most women don’t get enough of out of their diets alone. It also doesn’t include the vitamins that most of us are pretty good on already, which is a new approach for many multi-vitamins.  By taking it everyday, you’ll likely experience an improvement in mood, more energy, anti-aging effects and healthier skin.

Tip #2: Prioritize Good Gut Health

Hippocrates once said “all disease begins in the gut.” And he was on to something; one of the most important functions of our body everyday is digestion. And believe me, when you have poor gut health, it affects your life dramatically. That’s why it’s important to focus on small steps to improve your gut health by fueling the good bacteria in there with a probiotic.  It’s an easy way to get started on the road to good, healthy digestion.  After reading this post, I was a changed woman when it came to prioritizing my gut health every day.

Tip #3: Set a Bed Time

Our bodies crave consistency.  And that includes a daily routine with a bed time and wake-up time. When those are at generally the same time every day, our body systems naturally fall into a pattern like clockwork. 

Creating a calming bedtime routine and target time to go “lights-off”, you’re setting your body up for a better night’s sleep, which will ultimately affect your next day and the one after that.  My advice: make it enjoyable; light some candles, turn on a diffuser with soothing essential oils like lavender and chamomile, drink some nighttime tea, and read a few pages in bed.

Tip #4: Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

Drinking enough water every day is really crucial to staying healthy.  By hydrating properly, you’re helping to maintain the functions at every system in your body. A lot of times when we feel out of whack, drinking more water helps.

Tip #5: Get Outside

During all of the hustle and bustle of everyday life, sometimes it can be easy to forget the power of getting outside to feel happier and healthier.  Consider ways you can soak up some Vitamin D from the sun and breathe in fresh air throughout your day and you won’t regret it…even if it’s for just a few minutes!

Tip # 6: Put the Phone Down!

There’s no denying it; we’re all too connected all of the time.  It’s affecting our everyday thoughts and health more than we may realize.  Don’t believe me? Check out this segment with Anderson Cooper discussing the hold that phones have over us. 

Instead, work to leave the phone in the other room, replacing it with books and activities like coloring and meditation that require you to be all there, in the moment.
