12 Wellness Tips You Can Add To Your Routine Today!

In our busy lives, it can be hard to do the little things that keep us well. Wellness isn't just eating right and getting to the gym to sweat it out. It is doing the things every day that replenish you. It can be hard, by the end of the day, most of us are ready to just crash on the sofa and not move a muscle again until bedtime. Here is a list of 12 things you can do everyday that will make you more relaxed and much happier in your existence: 1. Turn your devices to silent so you can sleep uninterrupted. 2. Try to eat the entire 'rainbow' every day. Add fruits and veggies of all colours to your plate. This will be NO problem if you are into salads or smoothies. 3. Switch one of your daily cups of coffee for a tea. Bonus points if you make it a green tea. 4. Stretch yourself out! Take a break about every hour to have a stretch and walk around a little. This is especially important if you work in an office as sitting all day is NOT good for you. 5. Have a bath. Add vitamin E if you are looking for extra smooth skin. Leave your phone in another room. Relax. 6. Breathe. When you feel stressed or anxious, focus on your breath. Inhale deeply and exhale 5 times. 7. Add cinnamon to as many things as you can. It is great for your blood sugar and may also help lower cholesterol. 8. Hang out with friends who make you laugh. Laughing is the greatest remedy for whatever is ailing your soul. 9. Start writing. Keep a list of things you are grateful for. Or write out your feelings when you are sad and angry. You'd be surprised how clear things become when you commit them to paper. 10. Drink a glass of room temperature water first thing in the morning. It gets your system started! 11. Turn off all devices at least an hour before bedtime. This includes the television. Read a book instead. 12. Do 10-15 mins of exercise in the morning. At least. You know you're exhausted at the end of the day and ready with a million excuses not to do it. So, do it first thing. And you know what else might happen? Doing it in the morning will give you energy throughout the day with maybe enough left over to hit the gym on your way home. What do you do to treat yourself right in your day to day?
