Healthy Habits - Stretching

1. Exercise Regularly

Engaging in regular exercise is key to maintaining good health. Aim for at least three hours of moderate activity per week, with muscle-strengthening exercises. Regular physical activity improves cardiovascular health, strengthens muscles and enhances your mental well-being.

2. Add Nuts and Seeds to Your Meals

Almonds, walnuts and chia seeds are excellent sources of healthy fats, protein, vitamins and minerals. These tiny nutrients support brain health and reduce the risk of heart disease. Sprinkle them on salads, or yogurt or carry a handful for a quick, satisfying snack.

Healthy Habits - Sleep

3. Get Enough Sleep

Getting 7-9 hours of quality sleep per night is crucial for emotional health and physical recovery. Prioritise a consistent sleep schedule and create a restful environment to ensure you’re getting the rest your body needs.

Berries play a big role in reducing inflammation and supporting heart health, so add them to your morning cereal, and smoothies, or enjoy them as a snack for
a delicious health boost.

5. Stay Hydrated

Staying hydrated is fundamental to keeping your body functioning smoothly. Aim to drink about 2 litres of water per day – proper hydration helps maintain energy levels and supports skin health.

Effective stress management is vital for maintaining overall well-being. Incorporate relaxation techniques such as yoga, meditation or deep-breathing exercises into your routine.
