Quick and Easy Ways to Feel and Look Your Best

by Cascade Ice on February 25, 2020

Everyday life can sometimes take over, and our best intentions of eating healthy and staying in shape can take a backseat to the hustle and bustle and stress we encounter each day. But, the good news is, studies show that the way to sustain long-term health is to make small changes in your daily routine, rather than a huge overhaul of behaviours. So what does this mean? It means that you don’t have to sacrifice living an enjoyable life to be healthy. All it takes is just a few small “tweaks”! Here are a few expert-driven tips that will help you stay on track with your health and fitness goals for the long haul.

Walk Every Day

It doesn’t have to be a marathon, or even a long walk on the beach. You simply need to get your blood flowing every day, whether it’s taking the stairs instead of the elevator, biking to your friend’s house, or walking the dog around the neighborhood. All of these things will help elevate your mood, burn calories, and relax stiff muscles and joints. Make it your goal to walk each day.

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

One of the most important pillars of health is keeping your body hydrated. After all, all the major organs in your body simply wouldn’t work without adequate water intake. Make it your goal to drink at least 9 cups of water everyday. If you get bored with plain water, add a lime or lemon slice, or try one of the unique flavors offered by Cascade Ice Sparkling Water. Need more reasons to reach your hydration goals? Healthy-looking skin and more energy! Who doesn’t want that?

Establish a Regular Sleep Routine

Recent studies have shown that the most important thing when it comes to sleep is not necessarily how much you sleep each night, but having a consistent bedtime as well as having uninterrupted sleep. In fact, irregular sleepers were more likely to be obese, and have diabetes and high cholesterol. 

Any easy way to make sure you’re getting to bed on time is to set an alarm for 30 minutes before your goal bedtime, and turn off all devices, turn the lights low, and lay down. This will give your brain and body plenty of time to “wind down” and drift into a deep sleep.What easy ways do you incorporate into your daily routine in order to stay healthy?
