70 Simple Daily Habits You Can Do For Health, Fitness & Wellness

SIMPLE DAILY HABITS FOR , AND (70 OF THEM!)
One of the biggest road blocks that people tell me they have is time. We are all living in a super busy, wound up, go all day kind of world. Getting in eating healthy and workouts and reduction can actually be a challenge when you’re trying to juggle work, family, relationships and more. Daily Habits (Believe me – I am right there with you!)
I was talking with one of our fitness retreat guests the other day and she wanted simple, broken down ideas of what she could do immediately when she returned home. Change seemed overwhelming for her and I know it is for many other people too. So I decided to create this easy list of 70 simple daily habits to give you ideas of what you can do right now to make small changes in your daily routine.

My goal was to have you pick one from any of the three categories below to focus on for that day. You can continue to practice the same habit or you can choose a different one each day. You can extend to a week if you’d prefer. Either way, the list was created to show you that there are many different little tweaks you can make to make a difference in your health and wellness. Focus on what you need most and what feels good for you!
