It’s always a good time to start making healthy changes in your life, and today is as good a day as any. When you want to make some shifts in your life, put more emphasis on building healthier routines. Be patient with yourself and celebrate your successes along the way. If you take this one step at a time, you’ll create routines that nourish you and help you to sustain a healthy, vibrant life.

Here are some simple adjustments to your wellness routine to get started on the right foot.

Start caring for your gut microbiome

Make sure you’re eating foods with prebiotics and probiotics to give your gut everything it needs to stay balanced.

Prioritize healthy eating

Aim to make your plate full of foods with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fiber. A great way to do this is to make your meals as colorful as possible to give your body exactly what it needs.

Focus on your sleep hygiene

Most people don’t give much thought to their sleep habits, but the truth is that how you sleep can significantly impact your overall health. That’s why it’s important to focus on your sleep hygiene. This means ensuring that your sleeping environment is dark, quiet, and cool, establishing a regular sleep schedule, and avoiding caffeine before bed. It may also mean limiting your exposure to blue light in the evening by avoiding screens for an hour or two before bedtime.

A nurturing skincare routine

They may cost a bit more, but quality skincare products go a long way to ensuring you glowing and healthy skin. Read the ingredients and be sure you’re using something beneficial for your skin type.

Stop skipping breakfast

Breakfast is often referred to as the most important meal of the day, and for good reason. When you wake up in the morning, your body is in a fasted state and requires nourishment. Eating breakfast helps to break the fast and replenish your body’s energy stores.

Additionally, breakfast provides an important opportunity to get essential nutrients, such as vitamins and minerals, that are important for overall health. While it may be tempting to skip breakfast in favor of a quick cup of coffee or an extra hour of sleep, doing so can make you feel more tired later in the day.

Start strength training in your workouts

Even if you’re a regular runner or cyclist, cardio isn’t all your body needs. Start strength training in your workouts to improve your overall fitness and health. Strength training can help increase your metabolism and bone density, reducing the risk of osteoporosis and other age-related problems. You only need a couple of days a week to put weightlifting on your schedule. Grab some dumbbells and keep them in your living room to use while watching TV.

You don’t need to overhaul your entire life overnight, but taking small daily steps can lead to significant long-term results.
