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.

Everyone's daily circumstances may be different, but your advice is good and applicable to the creative mind. I'm going to modify and apply it. Report

Far to unrealistic for many. I commute to work over 50 miles. Parking at a distance is dangerous. Stairwells are Haven's for muggers. Are you really encouraging people to go to 'happy hour' and drink?? My workspace is where I work not idle. There has to be work and that is often not neat and tidy. Eat outdoors and be a drive by shooting victim? No thank you. It must be nice in your world by most of us don't live there. Report

I have a desk job and these will make me more mindful to move, move, move! Thanx SparkFriend. Report
I wear a Fitbit that reminds me to move every hour. Now, I can build on that with these wellness boosters. Report

Pinned it! Walking to work makes a difference. I used to 3 miles round-trip. Definitely works. I can't work to work now, 45 minutes drive. But I can work to a park. Report
thanks Report
Thankfully I am now retired & my last boss understood that messy desks are actually the sign of a highly intelligent & creative mind. Look up Albert Einstein's habits. Same for decluttering at home which I am only doing so I can either remodel my home or relocate to anothet state: maybe both. Fewer things makes cleaning easier that's true but a house that looks lived in is a home & not some sterile cage. The other habits listed are okay, however I wonder how a working person would get much else done.🤔 Report

I do many of these plus I make sure to get up and move every hour. Either walking around or stretching....just don't want to get glued to the sofa. Report

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
