While we all love to lose weight, stay fit and get healthier…forming the proper habit for these wishes could be tough. It took me series of struggle and frustrations before I finally settled war with the habit of living a healthier lifestyle.

How did it change? I learned a few healthy strategies. These strategies aren’t for everyone, so chose the one that may perfectly fit into your lifestyle. Below are 12 Simple Strategies for Getting Healthy.

  1. Throw Out The Junk Food

With those piles of junk food stocked in your fridge, sticking to a healthy diet could be a “mission impossible”. Why not toss out everything that’s fatty, sugary, salty, and greasy. Empty those junks from your pantry and fridge!

  1. Research Healthy Recipes And Purchase The Ingredients

You can find hundreds, if not thousands online. Start with one or two, easy one that shouldn’t take more than an hour to prepare.

  1. Prepare Your Meals In Bulk

It is easier for me to stick to a healthy meal if I get to prepare them in bulk. So prepare big batches of soup or veggie chill, or tofu veggie stir-fry, and store it in bulk in a container in the freezer or fridge.

  1. Get Some Healthy Snacks

Whenever you feel like eating some snacks, which do you prefer? Stock up some healthy snacks to munch on at home, work, or while walking down the road. Chopped veggies, fresh fruits, dried fruits; raw nuts are great examples.

  1. Socialize Healthily

Instead of wasting away in bars or unhealthy restaurants, you can get together for a cup of coffee, or a golf game, or take a walk through the park. Or find a healthy restaurant to eat.

  1. Get Yourself A Workout Partner

Find a good friend or spouse or co-worker to run with you, go on a walk, or meet you at the workout session or the gym. It becomes fun and easier when you have a partner to do it with you.

  1. Let Social Media Motivate You

You can either use Facebook, Twitter, Google+, or perhaps your favorite forums online for accountability and motivation. Announce publicly a 2-week or months of a health challenge, and let people get you accountable.

  1. Play Outside

You really need to step outdoors every day to fill your body with a fresh air and sunshine. Take the kids out for play, get a friend to take a walk or kick some balls around.

  1. Let water And Green Tea become Your Favorite Drinks

Many people drink sugar coffee or soda drinks all day. This is unnecessarily unhealthy. Make water your favorite drink and the unsweetened green tea your healthy companion.

  1. Schedule Active Breaks

Do you stay on the computer all day? Arrange a short break that’d last for around 30-60 minutes where you can walk around, stretch, maybe try some pushups or squats and drink water.

  1. Start Small

You don’t have to overdo things. It could be hard to sustain big chances. Make a little change on the list, make another change, and another. With time, you’ll get used to it.

  1. Have A Fun-filled Exercise

Create exercising challenge for yourself. Find the sports you love playing. Run as a means of meditation. Exercising shouldn’t be hard or boring- you could make it one of your best moments of the day.
