After weeks or months, you will see amazing results! In this article, discover the 5 healthy habits for women to include in your daily routine.

Read positive books and notes

Read positive books

First, start by reading positive books that bring joy and good humor. If you like fantasy, read that type of novel. If you prefer to learn more about human psychology, with tips for your life, go for personal development books. 

No matter what type of book you read, take something positive from it. And if a book doesn't do anything for you, don't waste your time and don't ruin your mood! Move on to the next one. During summer, it's the perfect time to read novels on the beach or to read books on personal development, especially on diet or sport! You can also read biographies of the greatest people on Earth, such as Michael Jordan or Warren Buffett, for instance. 

If you don’t feel to read many pages every day or don’t have time to, plan to read a specific number of pages each day. With this technique, you will be able to get into the habit of reading every day and finishing the books you start. It's not about forcing yourself, it's about developing the right daily habits that help you grow as a woman!

Put down your fork between every bite

We all tend to eat really fast. Especially for breakfast or lunch, we are often under pressure and need to eat quickly. We have to give you an advice : stop doing that. If you want to have breakfast, take time for it. Wake up 15 minutes earlier if it’s necessary. And for lunch, take a real break in your day to eat. There's nothing worse than ordering a sandwich and eating it in front of the computer, on public transport or while walking.

Take a break. At home on your table, on a park bench or at your company's cafeteria... Take the time you need to eat. Take a break between each bite. If it's with a fork, put it down between bites. If it's a sandwich, put it down after each bite. This simple habit will completely change your life. You'll feel full faster and for longer. The faster you eat, the more food you eat. Especially at home or at an all-you-can-eat buffet. So limit the amount of food you eat and improve your satiety by putting down your fork between every bite.

Keep a water bottle with you all day long.

Staying hydrated is crucial to maintaining an optimal energy level throughout the day. And for hydration, there is nothing like water! When you wake up, you are dehydrated. When you don't drink for several hours, you are dehydrated. And when you feel thirsty, you are already dehydrated. Make it a habit to carry a bottle of water with you throughout the day to drink regularly. At work, at home by your computer, on your nightstand, always keep a bottle near you.

Staying well hydrated allows you to keep an excellent energy level, but also to take care of your body and your skin. Indeed, a skincare routine is great for taking care of your skin from the outside. But take care of it from the inside by consuming around 0,5 gallons of water a day.

Drinking all day long with a water bottle is a healthy habit

Internal hydration involves drinking water, but also eating foods that contain a lot of water. The most water-rich foods are fruits, vegetables and dairy products. We advise you to consume them regularly to nourish your skin. Among the most water-rich fruits are watermelon, grapefruit, lemon and tomato. As for vegetables, choose cucumbers, green salads and radishes.

Have a good sleep at night

When we’re students, we often do not care at all about our sleep. We go out more nights than we should, drink alcohol and wake up early the next morning to follow courses or keep going with the “real” life. As soon as you get more mature, take really care of your sleep. A good night's sleep gives you the energy you need to be efficient and clear-headed throughout the day. In addition, sufficient sleep allows you to always make the right choices once you are awake and protects you from certain pathologies such as chronic fatigue or depression.

We advise you to sleep for at least 5 cycles. This corresponds, depending on the individual, to between 7h30 and 8h30 of sleep. This way you recharge your batteries and your muscles have time to regenerate (especially if you do sports). 

Finally, take the time to take a nap during the day if you feel the need. A short nap of 20 to 30 minutes is ideal to regain energy without interrupting your rhythm and preventing you from sleeping at night.

Make your own food decisions

The last piece of advice we have for you is to make your own decisions about food! Don't let your friends, family or husband influence you. If you only want to eat a salad at a restaurant, order first so that the group effect doesn't influence you

At home, if you live with your parents, husband or roommates, always make the decisions for your meals. Never be subjected to a meal. This way, you can maintain the actions necessary to achieve your weight loss or slimming goals. If you're short of ideas for healthy and balanced meals, don't hesitate to look at recipes online.
