Forget the excuses about why you can’t improve your health. No matter how hard you work and how difficult things are, there are always simple things you can do to get your physical mental and emotional health back on track. If you want to move forward and live a long, healthy and enjoyable life, you need to take the first step and below you will find some ideas to help you with that, which aren’t necessarily very difficult to do at all:

Take a Walk

If you’re unfit and out of shape, just stepping outside and putting one foot in front of the other could be all it takes to start building healthier habits, which will help you lose weight and boost your overall body health. You can build on it later and do more intense exercise as you get fitter, but for now, just walk.

Drink Water

Did you know that the adult body is made up of as much as 65 percent water? If you often feel tired and achy, it could be that you simply aren’t drinking enough to keep your body at optimum health. So, if you only do one thing on this list today, make it upping your water intake.

Commune with Nature

If you combine your walk with nature, not only will you get the physical benefits of being active, but you will also get the emotional and spiritual benefits that come with spending time breathing in fresh air and marveling at nature. Amazingly, spending time outdoors can help to manage and prevent depression and anxiety, cut obesity levels and offer a general sense of wellbeing, so get outside as much as often.

Admit You Have a Problem

Whether you binge eat to mask your feelings or you struggle with drug and alcohol addictions, today is the day to admit them. You don’t have to check yourself into a rehab facility just yet (although if you think that would help, go ahead), you just have to admit you have a problem and resolve to do something about it. This is the first step to overcoming your addictions and becoming the healthiest version of yourself you can be.

Connect with Someone

The simple act of hugging someone you care about can boost your mood by reducing a feel-good hormone called oxytocin. Whether you’re struggling with depression, feeling blue or just a bit lonely, a chat and a hug with a loved one will make all the difference at that moment.

Eat Some Veggies

If you’re a junk food junkie, start small and add a serving of fruit or veg to each meal. Build on this each week until you’re eating 5-10 servings a day and you’ll feel so much healthier inside and out, lose weight if you need to and get all the vitamins and minerals that are crucial to the correct functioning of the body.

Meditate

Meditation is good for just about everything. Taking 15-20 minutes a day to unplug, relax and get some space from your thoughts can help to relieve stress, anxiety, and depression, curb cravings, control addictions and boost happiness. It really is a miracle pill, which although won’t completely cure you of everything that ails you, will certainly help you get through the day in a more positive state of mind.
