Getting back in shape and starting to eat right can be a challenge. Healthy habits can sometimes seem very foreign and making those changes can feel like you are losing a lifestyle you love.
Here are some considerations you could have when you are in need of a change
Try these healthy habits to live your best life
Adopt Healthy Eating Habits
Begin by adopting healthy eating habits. You don’t need a formalized meal plan to get started. Instead, just take baby steps toward eating better. Actions like eating more fresh fruits and vegetables or eating more whole grains than refined carbs can add up to healthier food habits — and small changes make it easier to stick to this new way of eating. But if you want more guidance, consider downloading an app such as Fooducate or MyPlate Calorie Counter to help you get started. Research proves that apps like these do indeed work 
Also, make it a point to drink more water — and to drink water instead of other beverages, especially any with added sugar or artificial sweeteners. Drinks that fall into that category rarely have any nutritional value. Choosing water over all others is smart because it will keep you hydrated without adding calories or chemicals. Plus, if you drink a glass of water before you eat, you could eat less. That’s because drinking water reduces your hunger .
Get More Active (Consistently)
Remember to be more active as well. While this can include getting more exercise such as through yoga practice, committing to a short workout each day will only take you so far. Instead, try to adopt a more active lifestyle in general. Stand instead of sit whenever you can. This could mean using a standing desk at work or standing on your daily commute. Also, commit to walking whenever you can. You will burn more calories and you may even sleep better.
Mental health is also important. Removing stress from your life is a nice goal, but you have very little control over many of the things that happen in your world. The only thing you can impact is how you handle those circumstances. Meditating helps you understand your inner self and develop tranquility, even when everything else is chaotic. You don’t need to do anything special. Just spend some time sitting by yourself and breathing in and out, slowly. Let your mind wander and start to feel calm. Try these relaxing meditations.
Pursue a Side Hustle
Self-help advice is often centered on following a passion . However, if you let your passion guide your life, you could miss out on creating a life that is truly your best. Instead, look toward developing a purpose, picking a path, and positioning yourself for success. One way to do this is by pursuing a side hustle, like direct sales with Amway. By becoming more entrepreneurial in your off-hours, you can learn how to run your own business and develop skills that will benefit you in all areas of your life.

Creating Your Best Life
Living your best life is easy when you adopt healthier habits. Eating better foods, drinking more water, and moving more are good starts but also look at meditation and how you spend your extra time. Pursuing a side hustle can help you be the best you and help you make additional income in the process!
