5 Ways to Beat Bad Health Habits

If you’re someone who loves to look and feel great, you probably already know how important it is to have and maintain good health habits. But it isn’t always easy to do, especially when confronted with all the temptations around the holiday season! Good health doesn’t come from luck, it comes from discipline and staying true to your habits. Here are 5 ways you can overcome bad health habits and replace them with great ones:

Reduce sugar intake

Sugar is detrimental to your health any way you look at it. It contributes to diabetes, early aging and many other health problems. It’s also a major factor in tooth decay and oral problems. If you are receiving excellent health and dental care, make sure to do your part as well by cutting sugar from your diet as much as possible.

Make exercise fun

If exercising feels like a big chore, chances are slim that you’ll actually stick with it. So instead, make it something that you actually look forward to! You can recruit your friends and family to be exercise buddies, and help benefit their health while you’re at it!

Start meal planning

Do you ever find yourself looking through your pantry midway through the week and realizing that you have nothing but dry pasta and a can of olives for dinner? Not a fun feeling. This is when you’re likely to dial for greasy Chinese takeaway. Instead, meal plan on Sunday night so you can grocery shop for the whole week, enjoying healthy homemade meals instead of takeout.


Get off the couch

Oftentimes on the weekends we get into the habit of relaxing and just spending time with our friends in a cafe or on the couch! This can be a great way to catch up, but it’s not doing anything good for your body. So get outside and take your weekend catch-ups for a walk outdoors! You’ll feel so much more refreshed and energized afterward and your health will thank you!

Indulge sometimes

One of the most dangerous bad health habits out there is the occasional food binge. You can be one of the healthiest eaters out there, but if you’re binging sometimes on terrible food, it puts stress on your body and emotions. Instead, allow yourself to enjoy the foods you really want in a reasonable portion.
