10 Wellness Tips to Practice Every Day
Following a healthy, active lifestyle doesn’t have to be complicated! Even the smallest adjustment to your routine can lead to big changes. Here are 10 simple wellness tips to incorporate into your day:

2. Wear Sunscreen
Applying sunscreen is a “must do” healthy aging habit that should be done every day, no matter what the season. And it only takes a minute! Don’t forget to apply SPF to all exposed areas of the body as well.
3. Eat Breakfast
Breakfast eaters are more likely to maintain a healthy weight. And breakfast will also help keep you clearheaded all morning. Your brain needs fuel after an overnight fast.
4. Get Up and Move
Try to work more activity into your day. Take the stairs, walk or bike to run errands, stand at the counter while doing work on your laptop or pace the floor while you're on the phone.
5. Stay Hydrated
Many of the body's processes rely on water, but plenty of people don't drink enough. Keep water or tea near you and sip throughout the day.
6. Eat Slowly
Take a little extra time to slow down and relax while you eat. That way, you’re likely to eat less and enjoy it more.
A mess can lead to stress. Keep a clutter-free space for optimal productivity, efficiency and clearheaded creativity.
8.Take a Break
Step away from your work or other responsibilities, even if it’s just for five to 10 minutes to stretch, take a walk, meditate, call a friend or just enjoy your favorite shake or tea.
If you’re working from home, you’re most likely already using a computer throughout the day. Try to unplug and limit extra time spent on other devices. At the very least, disconnect from electronic devices at least 30 minutes before bedtime.
10. Give Thanks
You don’t have to wait for Thanksgiving to give thanks. Gratitude is a mindset that searches for and recognizes the things that we can be grateful for. Take time each day to appreciate all the things – big and small – you appreciate in your life.
