Healthy Habits on Holiday

Its so nice to look forward to a holiday! Especially a retreat πŸ™‚ But these days it’s so easy to make your own retreat-like-holiday! And in my opinion its actually better… You can do everything in your own time and literally wherever you like in the world πŸ™‚

Healthy habits are also great to start while you are on holiday, in a different environment and then implement them into daily life when you get back home to aid with nourishment and reducing stress- make everyday life a little retreat-like!

These are a few healthy habits that I implement into my life, and recommend to all of my clients, to increase nourishment, reduce stress and keep you grounded in daily life:
Green smoothie everyday, packed them with greens and maybe 1-2 fruits
2 litres of water daily, 3 if the climate is hot, always carry a bottle with you
– 5 cups of vegetables daily- super easy when you’re in a tropical location, its so hot that all you want to eat are salads! There are always some weird and wonderful creations to bring back to your home kitchen πŸ™‚ And remember to eat the rainbow! Each colour in vegetables represents a different phytonutrient and they are all important
– 10-20 minutes (minimum) of mindful meditation or breathing everyday
Yoga every second day, love this article that demonstrates the benefits of yoga
Walking 10000 steps daily or cycling– both great ways to see a new place! And as a bonus they help to keep you fit and healthy
Sleep at least 8 hours a night, sleep is so important for rejuvenation, healing, stress reduction and recent studies show sleep helps with weight loss too
Snack wisely, when on holidays (and in everyday life) I make sure to pack snacks, that way if you’re out and about it helps us to keep clear of high sugar options that are everywhere…
– 10-15 minutes of sun- without sunscreen so your body can absorb and use precious Vitamin D πŸ™‚ then lather up so you dont burn!!
– 1-a-day coffee πŸ™‚
– Try to avoid sugars
– Whist you’re being super healthy why not boost your gut flora and take a probiotic πŸ™‚ it will also lessen your chances of getting sick on holiday πŸ™‚

I hope you find these tips helpful, and I hope that you can keep them when you get home to make everyday a little more healthy and relaxing πŸ™‚
