MAINTAINING A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE
This summer hasn’t been my healthier one. Moving to Malta in May and launching this blog in July required a lot of time and energy, and I haven’t found the courage to workout as much as I usually do. My diet has also been more hazardous than usual : between busy days where your meal is the last thing in your mind and lots of dinners at the restaurant, I have been caught up in an unhealthy circle. I have therefore decided to make some changes to my lifestyle in order to start the fall with a healthy mind. I am sharing with you my tracks and ideas to detoxify your body.
A better lifestyle
When you want to have a healthier lifestyle, the first thing you need to reconsider is your diet.
I’va always had a quite healthy and balanced diet, especially these past 2 years, after I realised how important this was. Gleb and I usually eat organic food and we avoid the industrial one. When I lived in Rennes, I cooked a lot of super healthy meals. Unfortunately, since we moved to Malta, we have started to neglect our good habits : a poorly equiped kitchen, a tumultuous summer, a lack of time, the list goes on. But we have just started to find some organisation in our everyday life, and I am now able to go back to my healthy diet. My goals are the following (click on the arrows to learn more) :
If I forget about some unusual sleep troubles these past few days, I usually sleep 8 hours per night. This is therefore not a real problem for me, but I still mention it for the people who might be concerned. Sleep is a real asset for a healthy lifestyle, and I really advise you to sleep as much as you can, 7 to 8 hours per night would be great. Our body cells regenerate when we sleep, and a good rythm brings a lot of advantages : better concentration, better digestion, healthy skin, hair and nails, less food cravings, the list goes on.
Last but not least, hydrating is the key of a healthy body. At the moment, I am trying to drink 2 to 3 liters of water a day. This is not easy, and going to the bathroom every 30 minutes is not the funniest thing in the world, but this can really do wonders for you. At medium term, you are less tired, more productive, your signs of tiredness and your blemishes disappear, your hair is shinier and grows faster, the digestion is made easier and cravings go away. Really, it’s worth the try. And if this is too much, 1,5 liter per day will already be a great start.
I’m not telling you anything new, working out is crucial to stay fit and to maintain a healthy lifestyle. I have always worked out, more or less depending the times, and I am really motivated to get back at it in an assiduously way.
Adapted skin and hair care
Taking care of yourself, your skin, your hair will enhance the benefits a healthy lifestyle can bring to your physical appearance. I’ve decided to pamper my skin and my hair more than before.
I hope I will manage to keep these healthy habits, even if this is not going to be easy everyday.
I will keep you posted in a few weeks about the results I get.
