Overhaul Your Daily Routine For A Healthier You

Routines are hard to break. It’s even trickier when convenient, yet bad habits have crept into your daily routine that do nothing but leave you feeling sluggish and tired. In an ideal world, you’d be eating one of the homemade healthy bran muffins you made the night before for breakfast, cycling to work and heading to the gym in your lunch break before chowing down on a superfood salad. Sadly life gets in the way and prevents us from embracing the perfect routine. However, with the odd tweak to your lifestyle, you can give your daily routine an overhaul to create a healthier and happier you.

Breakfast

It can be oh so easy to grab a cinnamon whirl and full-fat cappuccino on your way to work. However, to start the day well, you need to look at healthier alternatives, preferably not from a high street coffee shop. If you are rushed for time in the morning what with the queue for the bathroom and the school run, try to get up just ten minutes earlier. The healthiest breakfast you can have is something that is high in fibre and will keep you feeling full until lunchtime. Check out countryliving.co.uk to see just how versatile porridge can be. Adorn your bowl of the oaty treat with a squeeze of honey and some fresh berries and your Danish pastry will be a thing of the past.

The Commute

If you aren’t blessed with the ability to take a ten-minute stroll from your home to the office, the daily commute can be a real grind. Driving for a couple of hours each day and getting caught in heavy traffic is an inevitable nightmare and you can’t help but think your time could be better spent. The stress of being late is enough to make you reach for a cigarette. Don’t. The tar and other harmful chemicals can wreak havoc on your body. Instead, check out a site like EcigWizard.com and explore the world of vaping. There’ll be no more nasties from tobacco, and your car won’t smell of smoke at the end of your journey.

If possible, enquire about working from home. Prepare a pitch and explain to your bosses how your hellish commute could be more productive spent formulating financial forecasts or honing the marketing strategy of your firm. You may not be able to work from home every day, but if you can secure one or two days a week agile working, you are onto a winner.

Exercise

Forget trying to get to the gym for an hour three times a week if your schedule won’t allow it. You’ll end up beating yourself up about not achieving your unrealistic goal. Instead consider heading for walks with the kids, gaining that all-important exercise while spending quality time with the family. Enjoy a family bike ride and bask in the outdoors to boost your endorphins rather than spending every evening glued to the sofa watching the gogglebox.

With a few gentle tweaks here and there you can give your daily routine enough of an overhaul that will allow you to feel healthier, happier and more content.

  • I love porridge so have been trying to make sure I eat it every morning because it’s one of the only things that keeps me full!
