Not only does having healthy habits help you to live longer and stronger, they can also bring more energy and vitality to your each and every day.
So join me on my blog today as I discuss
3 key steps for setting up your space for healthy habits.
Whilst one action on its own may appear to be minimal, a series of many of these singular actions made repeatedly over time can accumulate to great things.
Think that extra walk you sneak in every week, to starting your morning hydrated with a glass of water, to having your breakfast area clean and organised for ease of use, not to mention that one extra push up that has you gaining more strength and vitality in your day…
There’s power in the small stuff!
This is one of the main reasons why I believe that living in a space that supports our healthy rituals and routines is so important when it comes to living and achieving a healthy lifestyle with less stress and more ease.
So what are 3 steps to setting up your space for healthy habits?
Here’s a list of of my 3 favourite go to’s that I do on a regular basis and also use to support my clients in creating and sustaining healthier habits in their home and life.
So let’s get started…
When you clear the clutter you create the space for what matters most!
And having space for healthy habits that help you to live longer and stronger are something we value highly here at The Organised Life Project & The Clutter Free Body!
Decluttering is an act of self care, and it’s great to give your space a good declutter in order to set it up in a way that serves and supports your healthy living needs.
Whether it’s decluttering those old runners that have had their time, to your fridge of foods past their used by date.
By making this step a consistent practise helps you to maintain a healthy space that’s a fit for your healthy living needs.
2. Get your top shelf sorted!
One tip I always share with clients when decluttering and organising their fridges is that if you don’t have space for your meal prep to live, then odds on you will often find you are more unlikely to do it because sometimes the mere thought of having to clear the clutter to begin with can feel too overwhelming.
But by keeping your top shelf clean and clear, opens up the space for you to do a morning cook up ready for the day ahead, or a batch cook up the night before.
This will help to take the mess and stress out of your meal prep process and create more ease and flow in your fridge space, making you more inclined to eat more healthily with nutritious meal options at the ready.
3. Be present in your dining space!
Being present in the spaces we inhabit makes us more connected and keeps us grounded.
A prime example of this when it comes to healthy living is at 'meal times'.
So my third step to setting up your space for healthier habits is to be present in your dining space and to eat mindfully.
Ensuring that when you've served your meal that you’re being present in your space.
I used to always eat on the run, and often found myself hardly drawing a breathe during my meal times just to get straight back to work again 😅 and well, let's be honest... I do ‘LOVE’ my food!
But my lesson here was that our lives can at times become so fast paced that we are eating on the run and can forget to stop and relish in the moment of enjoying what we are doing at particular given times.
Which is what I at times would find myself doing!
So some simple habits to implement here are to put the phone down, turn off the technology, and sit in your meal space, enjoying the moment.
You can also try 'resting your knife and fork between bites…'
These habits are a great way to slow yourself down and be present when you eat.
Giving yourself the time and space to stop, take a breath, and be present, is a great way to really enjoy what you’re eating and bring a mindful practise into your home and space.
Setting yourself up for a healthier more nourished way of life.
