70 simple daily habits you can do for health, fitness and wellness

Simple Daily Habits for Health, Fitness, and Wellness (70 of them!)

One of the biggest roadblocks people tell me is having time. We all live in a very busy world that we end up going all day. Eating healthy, exercising, and reducing stress can actually be a challenge when you’re trying to juggle work, family, relationships, and more. (Trust me – I’m right there with you!)

I was chatting with one of our guests at the fitness spa the other day and she wanted simple, piecemeal ideas for what she could do once she got home. The change felt overwhelming for her and I know it for many other people as well. So I decided to create this easy list of 70 Simple Daily Habits to give you ideas of what you can do right now to make small changes in your daily routine.

My goal was for you to choose one of the three categories below to focus on that day. You can continue to practice the same habit or you can choose a different one each day. You can extend to a week if you prefer. Either way, the list was created to show you that there are many different small tweaks you can make to make a difference in your health and wellness. Focus on what you need most and what’s good for you!
