• Small Changes To Be a Healthier Version of Yourself

Do you find yourself stuck in a rut, but a complete overhaul of your life seems overwhelming? Then these small changes below are for you. It is very easy to simply swap out one habit for another and reap the rewards. Do you want a faster running time? Do you want to feel less stressed? Or do you just think you're running out of time? Check out these five tips below on how small changes can help you become a healthier version of yourself. 

1. Swap Out Your Cigarettes

Do you struggle to give up smoking? Do you enjoy socializing in the smoking area? Does it hinder your running or cardio exercise?

It's easy to see why giving up might be a good idea, but it's not always that easy. Why not exchange your traditional cigarettes for cinnamon nicotine pouches which don't contain tobacco at all. It's easy to see the benefit of switching out tobacco for a tobacco-free option. Try this small change and see how it impacts your performance!

2. Go To Bed Earlier

It is so easy to get caught up with friends until midnight with a glass of wine. Sometimes, you even feel your eyes shutting, and you start fighting it off. Don't fight that feeling! That is your body telling you that you need sleep. By going to bed even just 30 minutes earlier, you will gain more sleep. The benefits of more sleep include being more productive, determined, having better skin, and many more. 

Try going to bed just a little earlier and note how it impacts your performance.

3. Get Up Earlier

They always say that the "early bird gets the worm" - but is it true? People who wake up earlier find themselves more productive and ready to seize the day! This small change could mean you have time to dash out for your run before work or even take time to relax with a coffee without the need to rush out the door. 

Even just the feeling of being put together and organized can do wonders for your mood. Try this tip and see for yourself! 

4. Eat More Veggies

It is so important to eat fruit and vegetables every day. These help your heart, provide your body with all the nutrients it needs, and this is super easy to do!

You really are what you eat, and your body's fuel is the food you give it. It is vital for your health that you eat at least five a day to battle off unwanted illnesses and fuel your day. It is so easy to make this small change. Why not switch out noodles for spiralized carrots or add a side salad to your sandwich at lunch? It's also easy to ditch bread, pop the sandwich filling in a tub, and add a salad. 

You will find your performance and drive improve when you feel and eat better.

5. Define Boundaries

This is a crucial change to see your lifestyle and mood improve. Stop saying yes to everything and say yes to the things that make you happy. You don't want to have coffee with your high school friend? Then simply: don't. Take that time and go for a run or take yourself for coffee instead and enjoy your own company. 

Once you start setting your boundaries, you will find more time for the things you actually want to do!

Conclusion 

To feel less stressed, healthier and more put together - try exchanging small habits with these easy swaps. See for yourself the change in your productivity and performance!
