Prioritize Sleep

Sleep is the key to being rewarded for healthy eating and exercise habits. You should be getting 7-9 hours of sleep every night. Did you know that people who sleep 8 hours are 30% less likely to gain weight?! Once you prioritize your sleep you’ll overall health will improve!

The Greener, The Better!

Every meal should include a serving of vegetables, especially green ones! Green, leafy vegetables are a great way to bring more vegetables into your diet. Enjoy raw broccoli as a snack or steam it to serve as a side with dinner.
