With all the busyness going on in our lives, it can be hard to maintain healthy habits throughout the day. Whether the reason for that is our laziness or simply lack of time, at the end of the day, it all comes down to sitting all day and eating whatever is the easiest in a given moment.
With all that stress, our body screams for vitamin and energy injections, just to keep us going, one day at a time. 10 years ago, it has been reported by The Jama Network that “Workplace stress is as bad for your heart as smoking and high cholesterol”. Since then, a lot has changed – for worse. This should alarm us enough to start looking for healthy ways to even start a day with. Here are 3 ways to start implementing healthy habits in your everyday life.

3. Honey water
Honey water is excellent for busy mornings. It’s easy to prepare – just add a teaspoon of honey in a glass of water (on room temperature) and stir until the honey is melted. And that’s it! It is also low in calories (20-25 calories), rich in natural sugars, enzymes, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. Although there is a small amount of it in a teaspoon, it has a really strong effect on an empty stomach.
- Great for your digestive system
- Energy booster

Extra tip: Use a cotton pad to soak up the honey water and apply it to your face. Honey nourishes the skin, leaving it silky and soft.
And remember, you will never change your life until you change something you do daily. So start by changing your unhealthy habits with healthy habits.
