1. Eat breakfast

If you know me, this is an obvious one! I NEVER skip breakfast, but for a good reason! Breakfast helps start your metabolism and gives you energy and proper nutrition to focus throughout the day. I have found that if I don’t eat breakfast, I usually make bad eating habits throughout the day (especially at night... hello sweet tooth!). Starting your day off with a healthy and nutritious breakfast is essential!

2. Drinks lots of water

The Water Question. People are always curious as to how much water they need in a day. I love to live by this rule of thumb: drink more water than you think you should. I like to start off my day drinking roughly 30 ml of water before I leave my house. Then, I try to down at least two and a half of those 30 ml bottles while I’m at work, and then 30 ml more when I get home. Now, this is like perfect-world scenario… I don’t always achieve this. But, it is a great goal for me to have! Key: keep a water bottle with you at all times!

3. Walk often

I like to walk. There is something about it that is so calming and you just feel so… fit! Try to get as many steps in as you can a day. I like to park farther away from buildings, walk around the school [where I work] if I have been sitting a while, or just go on a walk with my sister. This does not count as my workout for the day; however, it is a great way to keep the burn even after your a.m. workout! Sometimes you don’t realize how sedentary you are until you consciously try to get more steps in.
