Eat a piece of chocolate. And stop.

5 well known health tips
You’ve probably heard these all before. But hey we can all use a little reminder now and then can’t we?!
Health Tip 1. Get some shuteye
Enjoy time in bed. And yeah, get some sleep too 😉
How much sleep do we really need? 7-8 hours of sleep is the magic number.
Easier said than done, we hear you saying.
You’re on the go all the time with barely any time to eat brekky. Boss needs that deadline met, partner needs dinner, the dog needs a walk.
You need a walk!
Your head is filled with the day, the next day, the week, the month! Sleep doesn’t come easy. How can it?
Give this sleep checklist a go to feel energised and ready to take on the world!
Health Tip 2. Make every meal count
Treat yourself the way you would treat someone who depends on you. You would make sure they have 3 delicious meals a day and at least 2 energy snacks in between.
You would cook at home as much as you could.
Because you know there’d only be good stuff in there (and if there isn’t, you know it’s in there!) And there are other great reasons to cook at home too.
You would give them plenty of water. Include a few vegies, fruit, meat, fish, dairy, and meats. Chocolate, cake or ice-creams would be a treat, once or twice a week.
Don’t stress about counting calories. Eat in moderation, it’s boring advice, but true.
Health Tip 3. Move
It’s as easy as that.
You move the moment you reach your arm over to bang your alarm silent. Just keep it up.
Walk to the train station (or even better, run if you’re late). Climb stairs. Wash the car.
Dance. Do pilates. Swim.
Anything helps. You’ll feel amazing and look hot in no time. We promise.
Health Tip 4. Get motivated
You get started in the new year with good intentions. But your efforts go down the drain pretty quickly.
Australia Day BBQs.
Spring (you just can’t get out of Winter habits).
Then it’s the holiday season all over again.
You are not alone. It happens to the best of us.
It’s bloody hard isn’t it?!
Mix it up a little!
For example you could:
- Team up with a friend or Personal Trainer
- Work out inside and also enjoy the outdoors
- Make exercise easy to fit into your day
- Set SMART goals
Health Tip 5. Stand
Sitting is the new smoking.
So push the sitting pains out the door. Stand as much as possible.
It’s better for your posture. You’ll think better. Feel better. And work better.
But you have to sit at work, I hear you say.
Set up a standing workstation.
And if you really need to sit, follow these 4 tips to sit with better posture.
