March is Nutrition Month in Canada—the perfect reminder to put your health and wellness first. Since it can be super effective to make small changes and work on shifting some unhealthier habits, here are five easy ways you can prioritize your well being:
eat well. We all know we need to eat a balanced diet so, when you're at the grocery store, make sure to choose healthy options that you actually like to eat (not just stuff that's "good for you"). That way you won't be tempted to bin it at 3 p.m. and grab the cookies.
fit friends. Make fitness a social occasion. Grab a pal and head over to Vancouver's MarVill Fitness for intense workouts that’s taking the city by storm. Grab a Heineken 0.0 from the on-site fridge post-workout and enjoy a beer without undoing all your hard work (think great taste, zero alcohol).
keep tabs. Track your progress; the fitness tracker trend has blown up recently, and there's tonnes of options out there that can help support your health, whether that's counting your steps or tracking your diet.
get zzzs. Sleep more! It might seem simple, but getting a good night's sleep has been proven to have major health benefits like reducing stress and inflammation, improving memory, regulating your appetite and reducing risk of depression.
time out. Take time for yourself! Don’t feel guilty about taking some "me" time, reading that book, taking a bath or simply sitting with a coffee; it's all about the quality of truly switching off, rather than the length. If you take 10 minutes every day you'll notice reduced tension, less fatigue and a better night's sleep. —Vita Daily
