Isn’t it so much better when a space is clean and picked up? I think it makes me less stressed too! 😱 We cleaned the house from top to bottom for my hubs for Father’s Day and even though I was on the working/cleaning side of it all, I feel like it was a gift for myself too. . . And, this is the bed that @birchlane is sweet enough to give away to one of you!! I can’t wait! Just like all the photos on my feed for the month June and follow @birchlane to be entered. Best bed ever…in my opinion!! ❤️❤️❤️ . . . #bed #tuftedbed #interiors #homedecor #woodwall #designboom #throwpillows #goldendoodleheart #tucsonaz #farmstyle #farmhouse #madebed
2.DRINK MORE WATER
You may hear that drinking plenty of water not only helps your skin, keeps you hydrated but it also the most recommended element used when it comes to a healthy lifestyle.
This one is also easy, but can definitely be forgotten, why not start keeping a bottle in your bag or have one at your desk at work?
Why not also go that extra mile and get an eco alternative and purchase a water bottle that keeps your drink warm and cold, whilst reducing plastic waste.
3.COOK AT HOME
Home meals can be somewhat difficult for those who are constantly on the go or get home late in the evening, so it’s sometimes just easier to get a quick takeaway.
However, research has found that those who cook at home consume fewer calories, carbs, fats, and sugars that those who eat out, which makes cooking your meals healthier, on average, than eating out.
This makes a great deal of sense because you’re in control of the ingredients when you cook at home!
4.REMEMBER, REST IS KEY
The root of many health issues is stress, and some of the reasons for the development of stress is due to the lack of rest.
So we must allow our bodies to rest, recharge and recover.
Put after reading this, why not put down your phone or laptop and pick up a book to help you have a nap?
It’s also good to set yourself boundaries and manage your screen time which can help encourage a better nights sleep.
5.TRY SOMETHING NEW EVERY WEEK
Trying something new and stepping out of your comfort zone can be very satisfying.
Why not try a new fruit or vegetable or even a new activity such as dance, swimming or a home workout. Its time to spice things up!
6.BELIEVE IN YOURSELF
We naturally put pressure on ourselves to be perfect in everything we do and it important that you know that you may not always get things right every time and that failure is another step away to success so it time to give yourself credit and acknowledge the small wins and look back on all the achievements and not just what you haven’t been able to do.
7.PUT A SMILE ON SOMEONE’S FACE TODAY!
The smallest gestures such as smiling at people as they walk past you on the morning or even leaving good morning messages to your loved ones to wake up too can put a smile on someone’s face and make the rest of their day pleasant as well as your own.
8.YOUR BODY IS A TEMPLE
Whether you are into yoga, Zumba, dancing or any sports activity it is not only a good way of working out, but it also adds some elements of fun.
So it important that you try to schedule some of the classes that you enjoy doing to keep your body working with you and not against you.

You are allowed to take up space. Own who you are and what you want for yourself. Stop downplaying the things you care about, the hopes you have. Own your passions, your thoughts, your perceptions. Own your fire. Stop putting your worth in the hands of others; stop letting them decide your value. Own saying no, saying yes. Own your mood, your feelings. Own your plans, your path, your success. — Bianca Sparacino Love this so much 🙌🏼 Happy Saturday Friends! . . . . . . . . . 🌵 #love #soul #womenempowerment #dreambig #yoga #yogi #explore #yogateachers #embodiment #wellness #heart #handstand #yogilife #health #yogaeverywhere #smile #adventure #empower #beagoddess #ownyourlife #happy #dream #barre
