Good health is incredibly complex, and there are lots of tiny tweaks you can make to your daily habits in order to help you live longer, and with more energy. When it comes to your health, your lifestyle choices play an important role. Lifestyle changes are behaviour modifications or habit changes that encourage positive changes in your life.
It’s never too late to start integrating healthier habits into your daily routine. Experience a fresh start by taking control of how you feel today and committing to small improvements. These are the building blocks that put you on track to feel stronger, prevent illness, and improve your quality of life for years to come.

Make sleep a priority: A good night of sleep can improve productivity, boost your mood, and stabilize your blood sugar to control hunger and cravings. You need seven to nine hours every night. The drawbacks to skimping on sleep are no joke. Consider this: if you’re skipping just an hour and getting six each night, your risk of obesity goes up 23 per cent. If you have trouble sleeping, use calming essential oils, eat sleep-promoting foods or making an effort to avoid screen time an hour before bed. Instead, unwind before bedtime with a bath or some light reading.
Your body’s circadian rhythm functions best when you make a habit of sleeping and waking at consistent times, which eventually stabilises energy and mood.
