How To Have A Healthy Lifestyle

People who maintain a healthy lifestyle live longer and enjoy better quality lives than people who don’t care about their lifestyle. The good news is that maintaining a healthy lifestyle isn’t hard; you just have loose a few bad habits and replace them with some better options.

Change Your Diet

Poor nutrition is one of the biggest reasons why people’s health deteriorates. Making smart food choices can have a long term impact on your overall health. When a person commits themselves to eating a healthy diet they reduce their chances of developing circulatory problems such as clogged arteries and dangerously high cholesterol. Another benefit to a healthy diet is that the person is usually lighter weight, the less weight a person carries, the less strain that is being placed on their joints.

Just because a person eats a healthy diet, doesn’t mean that they have to give up foods like hamburgers, ice cream, and hamburgers. Instead of giving up the foods all together, you just have to make sure that you treat these foods as a treat instead of the bulk of your diet.

Get off the Couch and Move

Exercise is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. The human body isn’t meant to spend time sitting in a car or behind a desk. We are designed to be in motion. Committing yourself to a healthy lifestyle doesn’t mean you have to go to the gym and subject yourself to a strenuous workout every morning. Things like going for a long walk before dinner will help keep your muscles toned and your joints loose. Regular exercise helps improve digestion and reduces the risk of several cardiovascular diseases.

Get Some Sleep

There are an alarming number of people who seem to think that they can survive on just a few hours of sleep. Not only does lack of sleep have a damaging effect on our bodies but it also causes impaired judgment. The best way to make sure you get enough sleep is to put your body on a schedule. Go through the same pre-bedtime routine every night and try to go to bed at the same time each night, the consistency will help you fall asleep quickly.

Before getting into bed, make sure you set an alarm clock. When setting your clock, make sure that it is set so that you can get up and not feel rushed as you get ready for the day. Not having to race as soon as the alarm clock beeps means that you will be relaxed and better able to cope with whatever stresses the day might toss your way.

Laugh

As we get older, we seem to lose the ability to laugh. If you are really committed to living a healthy lifestyle, you need to make an effort to laugh every single day. When you laugh you actually improve your overall health. Laughter gives the immune system a jolt, it pushes depression away, and it helps boost our self-confidence. The reason you’re laughing doesn’t matter, what is important is that you enjoy at least one or two belly shaking bouts of laughter every single day for the rest of your life.

Health & Financial Benefits of a Pet

We cannot recommend the benefits of having a pet enough. Especially dogs. I think they are the absolutely best thing to have in your life. (Since I don’t have kids, I am biased towards fur babies.) I have almost always had pets in my life – dogs, cats, and even fish, a ferret, and an iguana when I was married. The one time I didn’t have any pets in my life, either my own or a boyfriend’s, I remember being depressed and unhappy with life the majority of the time.

At the time, I didn’t really know why I was unhappy and I attributed it to the ups and downs of dating. However, when I look back at that time, I really think it was because I didn’t have a pet in my life.

Research has even show how pets can provide health benefits to humans. Having a pet in your life can decrease your blood pressure and cholesterol level, and prevent loneliness and feelings of depression by increasing levels of serotonin and dopamine. I even did a post last year on how pets make you happier and healthier.

In addition to the health benefits, pets can also save you money. You may ask how because I’m sure a lot of people would say they are an extra financial burden too when you add up the cost of vet care, grooming, food, toys, and also the damage they can do. However, there are ways a pet can save you money… here’s how I save money by having a dog:

  • I stay in more. Knowing that I always have a warm body to snuggle with on the couch while I watch TV or read a book I don’t need to constantly go out.
  • we don’t need a gym to exercise. I can just hook up Coco’s leash and head out the front door for a walk or run. (This is also a health benefit to having a dog, since they force you to stay more active.)
  • I’ve got my own in-home entertainment. Coco makes me laugh on a daily basis.
  • Unconditional (free) love. How awesome is it to come home after a crappy, stressful day at work and have your dog greet you with excitement and happiness because you are home.

These are my financial benefits of having a dog, which are also all health benefits. I’m sure everyone can identify their own unique benefits. When we adopt an animal, we are not only saving their life, but we are also saving our own in ways we often don’t realize. I will always be grateful for the benefits Coco provides me, she makes me happy, healthier, and an overall better person. #adopt #savealife

Why Do We Waste Food?

As layoffs loom at my company, I’ve started to analyze my budget more and look for areas where I can save money.  I’ve also spent more time on personal finance blogs reading up on topics such as saving money, investing, being frugal, and how to budget and track my spending better. Since I already have a love for accounting and finance, these topics are right up my alley and are actually fun to learn about.  Granted it takes the threat of potentially losing my job to push me in this direction, but sometimes we need to big motivator.  One of the areas of saving money, being frugal and budgeting I’ve found being discussed a ton on the blogs is food – groceries, eating out, snacks, healthy eating, etc.  Then last week, there was an article that popped up in my Arizona Republic newsfeed on a University of Arizona study titled Nation Wastes Nearly Half Its Food. What? Why?

When I think about it though, it’s not really that surprising. Americans love their food, hence the huge obesity problem we have in the United States.  But then, wouldn’t people be eating all the food, rather than throwing it away?  Although I am definitely more conscious of it now, I have been guilty of wasting food in many different ways. Here are a few of the typical ways we waste food:

  • Fruits and veggies that spoil before we can eat them.
  • Food hits the expiration date before we realize it
  • Go out to eat, eat only half of the huge portion, and leave the rest
  • Buy something new to try and decide you don’t like it

Even though there are a lot of ways to waste food, there are also a lot of ways to save before we waste it as well:

  • Don’t buy too much to begin with.  This can be a hard habit to break unless you stay disciplined – bring a list, don’t shop hungry, and know how much you and your family can eat.
  • If you eat out, take home leftovers. And remember to eat the leftovers!
  • Watch expiration dates closely and plan your meals based on food that will spoil first.
  • Make your freezer your friend.  Freeze food before it goes bad – cut up fruits and veggies and put in freezer bags to consume later, buy plastic containers to store leftovers for easy to reheat meals, freeze bread (it actually stays fresher in the freezer).

There are lots of ways to save money on food as well, but these are some helpful tips on how to not waste the precious food you buy. Of course, these changes probably involve creating new habits and lifestyle changes. I used to be bad at wasting food, mostly because I wouldn’t think about the impact it was having, primarily on my budget. As I watch my pennies now, the impact becomes more clear.  Here are some of my quirky examples of past food waste:

  • I would buy a whole sandwich, and as I got full, I would just eat the parts I really liked and then throw the rest of away (even though the food was actually still good). Now, I either order only a half, or if I order a whole, save the other half for dinner or lunch the next day.
  • I would do the same thing with pizza, and eat two or more slices, but not eat the crust or some of the toppings.  Now, I stick to one slice to begin with and eat the entire thing. If I want more, I’ll cut the next one in half first; pizza is always a good leftover.

  • I would buy all the produce that’s on sale and then end up throwing away at least 25% of it because I couldn’t eat it all.  Now I will not only buy less each week, but also if there is extra, cut up and freeze the fruit and veggies, as well as cook the veggies for ready-to-eat freezer meals.

You just have to get creative, try new things and find what works and what doesn’t! It takes motivation to develop new habits and it takes more motivation to keep them… there are lots of temptations to buy more and waste more every day.  As Leo Babauta says in his book The Power of Less, “We live in a world where, more often than not, more is better.” There is only so much we can consume, and when our tanks our full, the rest, sadly, goes to waste. What can you do to reduce your waste? #newhabits #reducewaste…

Fall Fruits & Veggies

I previously posted all about how wonderful summer fruits and veggies are.  They are amazing because you get some great hydrating produce in the summer.  I love the abundance of various fruits – berries, peaches, watermelon, plums, apricots and they are at great prices too, so it doesn’t break the budget buying the stuff I love.  Now we are moving into fall and the variety of produce changes.  There are some great, nutritious options starting to pop up in the grocery stores and at farmer’s markets.  Here are my best picks:

  • Apples – This fruit can be sweet, tangy, crunchy and they are packed with nutrients and antioxidants, which can help prevent chronic illness and slow aging. There are numerous varieties of apples; so try them all and pick your favorites for snacking and baking. Also, with apples, opt for organic since apples are on the “dirty dozen” list.
  • Cranberries – Cranberries are freshest October through November. Only a small percent of cranberries make it to the fresh produce section, whereas the majority are dried, canned, or made into juice. Cranberries are shown to help prevent urinary tract infections, oral diseases, and slow the growth of cancer.
  • Pears – These fiber rich fruits offer a few varieties, but Bosc and Bartlett are the most common in the U.S.The high soluble fiber in pears helps lower LDL “bad”cholesterol. Like apples, you can snack on the fruit whole or incorporate into recipes. Pears are also on the “dirty dozen” list, so go for organic here too.
  • Pumpkins – These guys are technically a squash, but since they are so prevalent by themselves during the fall, I thought they deserve a special mention. Pumpkin is one of the best sources of alpha- and beta-carotene, which can be converted into retinol to promote healthy vision and cell growth. Pumpkin seeds are also a good source of alpha-linolenic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid that may help those with heart disease, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol. Easy to toast and add to salads and veggies for an added flavorful crunch.

  • Squash – Squash is clearly abundant in the fall as often depicted in holiday pictures from Halloween to Thanksgiving and Christmas. The varieties are plenty including acorn, butternut, delicata, and my favorite, spaghetti squash, which can be an easy substitute in a pasta dish.
  • Sweet Potatoes – The fall is the peak season for these orange beauties. Sweet potatoes are rich in beta-carotene, a nutrient that helps prevent vitamin A deficiencies, promote healthy eyesight, and generate retinol production. Sweet potatoes are also a good source of vitamin C, and when eaten with the skin on, a medium potato has about four grams of fiber.

Although nowadays produce can be grown year-round somewhere around the world, the best produce is often the local, seasonal bounty. There are actually a lot of different options every season, so if you open yourself up to trying new things and enjoying the abundance of options, your body will thank you for it. Variety in what your eat offers your body all the nutrients naturally. It can be fun to try new things and it may end up being a new eating habit you really enjoy. Enjoy the local, fall produce now and reap all the healthy benefits you can! #newhabits #healthy habits

We can’t forget about how much Coco loves fall; with the cooler weather she gets to spend more time outside. She loves Halloween. Can’t you tell how much she likes to dress up? Oh, the joy of wearing a costume. Just a squirrel trying to get a nut……
