Easy Better-for-You Choices
You don’t have to change your whole routine to start a better-for-you life. There are easy adjustments you can make throughout the day. In partnership with Honey Nut Cheerios, here’s a cheat sheet to help get you started.
Get moving—even if it’s just a few minutes of stretching. It will help get your heart rate up and energize you.
Start the day with beta-glucan—a soluble fiber found in whole grain oats that can help lower cholesterol as part of a heart healthy diet. The FDA recommends 3 grams daily. Get .75g of beta-glucan with a bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios.
Skip the desk lunch and eat away from your computer.
Portion out small bags of homemade trail mix for an easy, satiating afternoon snack.
Put the phone away an hour before bed. Artificial light can suppress melatonin, which helps you sleep.
Try a sleep mask. Reducing light can help keep your sleep cycle regular.
Take a break every now and then and focus on a few deep breaths.
Take the stairs instead of the elevator whenever possible.
Have fun! Seriously, laughing and smiling are great ways to destress.
