It’s easy to take small steps to better care for ourselves and lessen our impact on the environment. Read on for five ways to incorporate healthy habits into your regular routine.
1. Stay active.
Engaging in regular physical activity, from walking to going to the gym, may decrease your risk of developing several medical conditions, including cardiovascular disorders and diabetes.
2. Make sleep a priority.
Getting enough rest may increase memory, promote positive moods, and prevent disease. Sleep is also linked to maintaining heart health and blocking weight gain.
3. Drink plenty of water.
To prevent dehydration, it is important to ensure that you are drinking enough water throughout the day in addition to liquid gained from food. You may need to increase your water intake if you are active or in warmer weather.

5. Choose organic.
To help improve your family’s health and cut the amount of chemicals sprayed on crops and soil, choose organic versions of foods, for example; apples, berries, and nut butters.
