5 Ways to Live a Healthier Life, Even If You’re Lazy

For how pretty and exciting social media makes it seem, being healthy can be a bit of a drag. It’s not always glamorous or fun, even though Instagram influencers might have you thinking otherwise.

When you’ve got a lot on your plate to begin with, it’s understandable that healthy living hacks are at the bottom of your list. But what if we told you that you could be healthy even when you’re busy or just feeling lazy?

The great thing about wellness is that it’s not a black or white deal. There’s a lot of grey area where you can make some improvements in your life without overwhelming yourself.

For all those couch potatoes and lazy bones, we’ve compiled a list of lazy ways to live a healthier life. Keep reading below to learn more.

Start Your Day Off With Warm Lemon Water

This is a trend loved by the Insta-famous. It’s not difficult. It will make you feel a bit fancy. The best part? It actually works! When you first wake up in the morning, head to the kitchen to boil some water. Squeeze half a lemon into it, and some honey if you’re feeling extra sweet. The warm water will gently wake up your body and the lemon juice will help get your digestion flowing and help your body detox out impurities. It’s a sweet and simple ritual that can start your day off on a healthier note.

Keep Hydrated

Now that you’ve started your day off with a beverage, don’t stop! Keep drinking water throughout the day. Maybe even challenge yourself to finish a gallon each day. Keeping enough water in your body will help it function better, flush out what you consume, and satiate the brain. You’ll feel good about yourself at the end of the day knowing you did your part to drink water without any sweat off your back.

Replace Snacks

Snacking is one of the great joys of being human. These small little bites of food can have us feeling revived throughout the day. However, they’re also an easy opportunity to get carried away with what we eat. Many snack foods are processed and full of things like sodium, trans fats, and sugar. Try switching out your go-to snacks in the pantry with healthier alternatives. Say goodbye to the potato chips and hello to pistachios, for example. Just a quick restock with some help from the grocery store is an easy way to improve your eating habits.

Stretch

For those moments when you’d rather do anything else than workout, stretching is the perfect answer. Physical activity is crucial for a healthy mind and body, but it doesn’t always have to be challenging. You can even stretch from the comfort of your bed or couch! Taking a few moments to connect with your body can keep you more in-tune with it and subconsciously help you treat it better.

Find Easy Meals

Eating out is such an easy thing to resort to when you’re feeling lazy and tired. It shouldn’t, however. There are a ton of super simple healthy recipes you can whip up at home in the time it would take you to drive to get your takeout meal. A great example is a smoothie with some hidden greens or a whey protein powder. Poke around online to find some recipes that seem approachable to you. Simply making your own food will keep you mindful of what you’re putting into your body.

Pro Tip:

If your diet isn’t as rich in nutrients and vitamins as you’d like it to be, supplement! Taking your vitamins every day is a great habit to start and can help fill your dietary gaps.
