Achieving a healthy lifestyle does not have to be an impossible mission. We share 10 easy, but powerful steps that will make you feel happier, healthier and stronger. Make them a habit and improve your physical, mental and emotional well-being. Small changes can make big differences!

1. Conscious eating: When eating, do not turn on the television or take your cell phone to the table. Give your full attention to the food in front of you and chew slowly and consciously. By avoiding external stimuli, you will appreciate food and its flavors more, your digestion will improve and the feeling of satiety will reach your brain sooner to avoid episodes of compulsive eating.

2. Vegetables first and foremost: Eat green! The consumption of vegetables is essential if you want to have a healthy and nutritious diet. Vegetables are high in vitamins, fiber and minerals that help us strengthen our immune system, control stress and detoxify the body. Always make it the first food you put on your plate.

3. Water is life: The benefits of drinking water are innumerable; improves digestion, skin health, relieves fatigue, reduces the risk of strokes and heart attacks, prevents headaches, and much more. We suggest that you carry a bottle of water wherever you go, having it on hand makes you drink it throughout the day.

4. Keep moving: Exercise every day, even if it's just for 15 minutes. Go for a walk, bike ride, go to the gym, dance, or whatever you enjoy doing, but keep your body constantly moving. This way you will feel happier, your energy levels will increase, you will strengthen your muscles, and you will increase your life expectancy.

5. Increase blood flow: Promote lymphatic drainage by massaging your body with a scrub, body cream, or simply a damp towel. Gentle, light movements increase circulation and purify the body by eliminating toxins and waste from the body.

6. Kind gestures : Taking just a few minutes to brighten someone else's day will help feed your soul and strengthen your spirit. It doesn't have to be an extravagant gesture, you can donate old clothes to a charity, buy a coffee for the person behind you in line, visit a sick friend or simply leave a positive comment on a blog or Instagram post. .

7. Strengthen your interpersonal relationships : Call an old friend or ask your loved ones about their day, listen carefully and give them uninterrupted time. If someone needs help, offer your hand and always remind your family that they are important to you.

8. Follow a sleep routine: Establishing some nighttime rituals may be exactly what you need to fall asleep and get a good rest. Turn off all electronic equipment 30 minutes before going to bed, go outside and walk for a while, meditate, make tea, take a warm bath or do any other series of calming activities that relax your body at night and improve your quality of sleep.

9. Be good to yourself: Practice the art of self-love and self-care. Start each day by reciting or writing a positive statement about yourself, go to your favorite restaurant, start a gratitude journal, or find an activity/hobby that makes you feel free and happy. The self-care rituals we incorporate into our daily routines are the most important for our overall well-being.

10. Organize your space: Keeping your room or workspace clean and tidy can do wonders for your productivity levels and peace of mind. A messy environment often gives an overwhelming feeling of stress and lack of control in your life. Avoid this by spending 5-10 minutes in the morning, or 2-3 days a week, to organize all your personal things, both in your room and in your office.
