For Wellness Wednesday this week I wanted to do something a little different, so I very – unscientifically – polled several of my friends and ask each of them for just one thing they would do to live a healthier life. I got some great responses!
“I’d stop drinking diet soda. I am sooo addicted to Diet Dr. Pepper and I’ve heard that the chemicals can actually cause you to crave more sugar.” ~ Noel
I’m going to have to remain in denial about this one for awhile because I am also addicted to Diet Dr. Pepper! Clearly I need to work on that vow from last year to give up caffeine.
“I need to run more often. I tell everyone that I run 4 to 5 times a week, but I really run maybe twice. But this frees up my life to catch up on back episodes of Gossip Girl. Don’t judge me.” ~ Caroline
No judgment here. You don’t even want to know what lives on my TIVO.
“Girl, you need to start doing yoga. I’ve been telling you that and I mean it.” ~ Paula
“Drink more water” ~ Jess
I completely agree with Jess’s advice. My skin always feels amazing when I drink lots of water. And I get more exercise because I have to hop up and pee every 5 minutes. Win, win!
And finally, from my friend Dan says we should “eat less bacon.” But then he goes on to say “but is life without bacon really worth living? You decide.”
So what is your top tip to be healthier? What’s the very first thing you would do to make yourself healthier?
