Set a daily water intake goal

Drinking a minimum of 8 glasses a day is important to your overall health. Staying hydrated helps you feel better as well as helps your organs function better. Invest in a quality water bottle so you can keep it filled daily and get those 8 glasses in.

Aim for a daily evening walk

Make a promise to yourself to be more active. An evening walk is always a relaxing way to wind down the day while burning some calories. Even a brisk 20 minute walk each night can make a huge difference. If you really want to amp up your walk, you can always use hand weights as you walk or add ankle weight to increase resistance.

Start your day with a little journaling

Take ten minutes each morning to journal. You can write down goals for the day, random thoughts, ideas, or even notes to yourself. This is a great way to wake up peacefully and start your day on a positive note.

Take the time to enjoy some yoga or gentle stretching each day. This is good for your body and soul and only takes about 20 minutes per day. Follow along at a class or learn some moves and practice them at home. You can even find easy to follow tutorials on YouTube.

Eat fresh
