6 Steps To A Healthier, Happier You

I received free product from Truly Radiant to review.

Happy Monday! Monday's get a bad rep - I mean, they give us an opportunity to show this week who's boss! We all want to be happy, but sometimes keeping a positive attitude day in and day out is much easier said than done. These might be small steps, but don't doubt their effectiveness!

Step 1. Exercise first thing in the morning.
If you can turn your alarm clock up to squeeze in a workout first thing-it's worth it! Not only will you burn more calories and be less tempted eat junk food throughout the day, but you will feel so much better. Endorphins are a great great great thing.

Step 2. Don't use your phone in bed. You will gain a few extra Zzz's and I promise you, your inbox can wait!

Step 3. Try a new smoothie recipe. 
I don't know what it is about smoothies, but they always make me feel so refreshed (especially in the mornings-it's never a good idea to skip breakfast!) and summer is the best time to experiment. Visit your local farmer's market and go crazy.  (I plan to share a bunch of recipes soon that we've made in our Blendtec!)

Step 4. Get rid of the negativity.
Surround yourself with people who encourage you and inspire you.

Step 5. Keep a food and goal dairy.
Have a notebook for each, if you want. In order to get healthier, it's important to evaluate where you might be going wrong when it comes to what you're putting into your body. Tracking what you're eating is a great way to look at a full day and to hold you accountable. To help keep your goals on track (new job? looking to save up for a big move?), putting them down in writing always seems to help.

Step 6. Don't put off your appointments with your doctor and dentist.
Not many people enjoy these checkups, but do you know what's worse? That feeling of being SO behind. Stay on top of your appointments and try not to reschedule them (who's guilty of this? besides me!) so that you can get them done and move on to the next thing!

Try the new ARM & HAMMER Truly Radiant Collection for a radiant smile. Below are a few of their great products! These rotating toothbrushes are legit, ya'll. Love them!
