Adopt a Healthy Habit for Every Waking Hour

By , SparkPeople Blogger
No one is perfect all the time. We all have slip-ups and setbacks, whether it's too much chocolate, too little exercise or the wrong amounts of sleep, stress or salt. The key is to give yourself grace for your mistakes and use them as stepping stones to better choices.
Below are some ideas for healthy habits to incorporate throughout your day. Since we all have different tastes and timetables, feel free to shuffle the schedule accordingly. The important thing is to embrace these types of wellness boosters as part of your regular routine, so they eventually become the rule rather than the exception.

Thanks for a great article. In the morning, I like to journal. I take a few minutes to scan my body, mind and soul to find out where I am at. It takes a few minutes and it helps me start my day. Enjoy your day everyone! Report

This is great! A lot of these could also apply to a stay-at-home parent, part-time employee/full time parent, or even someone working at home. I am definitely going to use this as a guideline for my “at home” days, as well as the days when I don’t start work until later I. The day. Report

Good article, don't forget to floss! Report
This just looks plain overwhelming, and I am not new here, but I believe there are other things to think about in the day, this is not a major job, but part of a well rounded life. The constant nagging of doing something every hour in a totally busy day would be a stress point to me. Almost like the fitbit nagging me to have 250 steps every hour, like you can't rest for an few hours a day and do something fun Report
