Are you fed up with feeling sluggish? It can often feel like a vicious cycle, being trapped with no energy and not being able to get anything done. While setting goals is a good idea, it can also feel a little out of reach if you are not in the right place to achieve them. To help you change how you feel, you should start by changing a few small lifestyle habits and behaviors. This is much easier to achieve and will get you building the momentum you need to get out of a slump and start achieving bigger goals. 

To help you on your journey, here are some top tips on being your best and healthiest self. 


Sleep is often overlooked when it comes to creating healthy habits. Most people will focus on exercise, however, sleep should come first. If you are not sleeping properly, then everything else you try to do will be a wasted effort. When you sleep, your body uses this time to recover and detoxify. If you exercise to be healthy but are not sleeping, then you won’t recover, you won’t build muscle, you won’t lose weight and you will feel even worse. Make sure the first thing you do is consider how much sleep you are getting as well as the quality and make sure it is good enough.


Food is crucial for your mood and energy. If you want to feel good, as well as look good, then you need to eat a good diet. Consider eliminating processed and sugary foods and instead, incorporate whole foods, vegetables, and fruit into your diet. Make sure you are eating enough food each day, as this will give you energy, fuel your workouts, and ensure your body can function at its best. You can make nutrition fun by making all your own food and find some fun and delicious new recipes to try, such as this chicken francese from Preppy Kitchen.

Stress management 

Reducing stress is really key to being your best and healthiest self. When you are stressed, you will not be able to think straight. Your body will be consuming all sources of energy to fuel the stress and you will not have much left to function, digest your food, be sociable, and more. Make sure you consider your triggers and deal with them, as well as learn stress reduction techniques that can help your body relax. This will help you get out of the vicious cycle and feel a lot better about yourself. 


If you are struggling with energy and lead a sedentary lifestyle, then exercise is something you will benefit from. When you get started, it will build momentum. It will feel hard at first, but you will find that exercising gives you more energy. Start very small, for example, with a 10-minute walk around the block, or taking the stairs instead of the elevator. Then you can build this up in your own time.

When you are in a slump, big goals can feel impossible. Before you try them, consider building a healthy foundation for yourself first, to help you feel better.

8 Packing Hacks When Moving

You eat off of paper plates with plastic utensils for your last week because you know your kitchen takes the most to pack. You shift boxes around for weeks while you try and continue living in your home. It’s just not fun. Certain things can make it more enjoyable or at least easier, however. For instance, if you have found a great apartment for rent center city or similar, then you might find that this takes the sting out somewhat.
