6 easy hacks to living a healthier life

Share This

Irrespective of whether you’re super busy or simply lazy, living in today’s day and age is making it progressively harder to stay fit and live a healthy lifestyle.

Here’s a curated list of 6 easy hacks you can immediately implement to lead a healthy wholesome life. 

1.      Cut down on sugary drinks

One of the simplest things yet most important hacks is to cut down on sugary drinks – aerated beverages, iced teas, mocktails and the like. Don’t worry; you don’t need to ban them altogether, just cut down the frequency to reduce your daily intake of calories.

2.      Take the stairs

Make it a point to use the stairs whenever you have a chance – be it at work, the mall or just the stairs up to your apartment floor. If you’re looking for an incentive, 2 minutes of walking up the stairs burns 25 calories while taking the lift burns none. If followed everyday, this can add up and make a huge difference.

3.      Change the way you consume caffeine

If caffeine is an absolute necessity to kick start your day, change the way you consume it. Try to drink your coffee black or add a small amount of sugar-free almond milk. Cold brewed coffee is a delicious alternative and you can also start with lighter roasts that are easier to drink without milk.

4.      Come what may, don't skip breakfast.

You’ve heard it since you were a kid – breakfast is undeniably the most important meal of the day.  If you begin your day with a nutritious, healthy breakfast, you’ll feel a greater level of energy and productivity throughout the day. This also gives you the chance to avoid hogging on a counter-productive high calorie lunch.
Pro Tip – An ideal breakfast is one, which includes protein, some carbs and healthy fat. Prepare and store eggs with sautéed veggies to enjoy a healthy meal without spending precious time on a daily basis.

5.      Start your day with a big glass of water

Make it a point to begin your day with drinking a glass of water as soon as you wake up.  Not only does this wake you up, but also cleans your body of toxins that may have accumulated overnight. Ensure that you drink enough water throughout the day to feel fresh and keep your body hydrated. Another thing you can do is to replace sugary beverages with water or tonic water.

6.      Find a buddy who will exercise with you

No list of health hacks is complete without following a workout regime. However, we do realize how difficult it gets to maintain this routine. The best hack is to get a workout buddy (real-time or virtual) who will motivate you and push you whenever you want to give up. This also adds a competitive edge that will compel you to give your best when exercising or working out.
