Felt great starting my day with a workout! Had a busy and productive day and feeling good about fueling my body with all the colors of the rainbow, which is a guideline I’ve been incorporating lately to ensure I’m eating a balanced diet. Goal for tomorrow – include more purple/blue foods like berries and cabbage! I feel like I didn’t drink enough water today so I’ll shoot for a couple extra cups tomorrow too!
Other healthy habits that make me feel my best: Setting a bedtime alarm to make sure I’m getting a full 8 hours! Also, using my @healthish water bottle to track my fluid intake and shooting for 12 cups. In addition, trading coffee for matcha. Finally, using deep breaths to get re-centered when I’m stressed or anxious, then writing in my 5-minute journal every morning and every night.
