Sometimes the task of getting healthy can feel like a giant mountain that's impossible to climb. Most people don't have lives that allow them the time or resources to make radical changes to their diets or exercise routines. Luckily, there are a few easy ways you can be immediately healthier, both mentally and physically.
When I get even a little time to exercise, I feel more balanced, but it's not so easy to grab that time. Each morning I vow to get on the stationary bike before my kids go to school (I don't). Then I promise myself I'll do it after work (I still don't). Then I say I'll sneak it in while I watch TV after dinner (no, still nothing). Suddenly it's 11 p.m. and I fall into bed, exhausted and angry with myself for not exercising. This causes me to fall down a rabbit hole of negative thoughts, which keeps me from falling asleep. You can see how that leads to an unhealthy lifestyle.
In an ideal world, I'd have hours to dedicate to improving my health but that's not my reality, nor is it the reality for others. Making changes a little at a time is way more palatable than a global reset. Here are some other things you can do right now to lead a healthier life.
