Top Health and Nutrition Tips of Spring 2018

Tip #1
Get your 7 to 8 hours of sleep every night.
Not sleeping enough can lead to stress and weight gain. Do what you need to do to get the ample amount of sleep your body needs.

Tip #2
Don't be afraid to make special requests at restaurants.
If you are trying to eat healthy and eat fewer carbohydrates or fewer calories, then don't be tempted to stray away from your diet at restaurants. Most establishments are willing to meet special requests, such as requesting a burger with no bun or a taco salad with no shell. Just ask.

Tip #3
Make walking or jogging a normal part of your daily routine.
Walking or jogging, depending on your current physical level is a great way to relieve stress and get some easy daily physical exercise. Make it a part of your day, whether it be walking your dog in the morning or taking your kids to the park in the afternoon and walking around there. Do what feels right and works for your schedule. Soon enough, it will feel like part of your daily routine and you'll want to get up and walk every day.

Tip #4
Meal plan, meal plan, meal plan!
There's nothing worse than coming home after a long day of work and being expected to prepare a meal. You are tired and will most likely end up calling in for a pizza or choosing something else that strays away from eating healthy. Bypass this dilemma and choose a day that works with your schedule and plan your meals out for the week. This way, when you get home, you can heat up what you have already prepared and have a healthy meal with minimal work preparing it.
