We all want to live our healthiest, happiest lives. But with our busy schedules and with life always throwing the unexpected at us, it’s sometimes hard to stay focused.
1. Positive self-affirmations. Get your mind right first thing in the morning. Before you even get out of bed, tell yourself everything you like about yourself. Tell yourself everything you like about your life. Tell yourself that you are worthy of living a healthy, happy, prosperous life and mean it. Get your mind right first thing in the morning with positive self-affirmations.
2. Drink water. Once you get your mind right, start getting your body right. I want you to drink a glass of water in the morning, preferably with lemon. Now, there are some benefits to lemon water. Lemon has vitamin C, which can help to boost your immune system. Lemon water can also help to decrease inflammation in your body. It has antioxidants. Lemon water has citric acid, which can help prevent kidney stones. So drink water, preferably lemon water.
Throughout the day, I want you to stay hydrated. Most people should drink between two and three liters of water. That’s anywhere from four to six 16-ounce bottles of water. Now, if you have a medical condition that requires that you have a fluid restriction, you don’t want to drink too much water. So if you have heart failure or kidney failure, be sure to consult your physician. But for most people, two to three liters of water at least is what you should be taking to hydrate yourself. You’ll know you’re well-hydrated because you’ll be urinating frequently, and your urine should look clear, almost like water, just with a slight tinge of yellow.
Drinking water and staying hydrated can help to detoxify your system. It can help with your digestion, help to keep you regular. It can also help with your complexion and give you a clearer complexion. And staying well hydrated can help to prevent kidney disease. Drinking water is another healthy habit for better living.
3. Set daily goals. Have a purpose for each day. I want you to write a things-to-do list with both short-term goals and long-term goals, and I want you to set realistic deadlines. Even for the long-term goals, I want you to set deadlines. Because if you don’t, those things are not likely to get accomplished. A purpose-driven day leads to a purpose-driven life, which is another healthy habit for a better you and a better life.
