HOW TO GET YOUR LIFE BACK ON TRACK | 5 HABITS TO BECOME YOUR HAPPIEST, HEALTHIEST SELF

Hey friends!! Today’s post is going to be all about getting back on track. I don’t know about you, but I’ve been feeling kind of off these past few weeks and just haven’t been super productive. I was listening to a podcast episode about healthy habits and it inspired me to write out a few habits/goals I wanted to implement in my life. I’ve been following them and they have been so helpful for me to get back on track so I wanted to share them with you all ❀


habit #1 – limit your screen time

This is SO IMPORTANT trust me guys!! I waste sooo much time on my phone if I don’t limit screen time lol. My current goal is to get under 2 hours per day, which may seem like a lot to you but it’s what’s right for me right now πŸ™‚ Also a great tip is to not go on your phone at all for an hour after you wake up and an hour before you go bed. This has been super helpful for me!

here’s another post I wrote allll about screen time! check it out if you haven’t – it’s super helpful i promise πŸ™‚

habit #2 – workout at least 3-4 times per week

this is hard but it is so helpful you guys! I’ve been loving Pamela Reif’s channel lately but I posted a whole post about my favorite channels and videos so check that out for sure! I would also recommend doing at least one “active rest day” per week – this could be going for a walk, doing some yoga, or anything that engages your muscles but is easy/relaxing.

habit #3 – make journaling a habit

If you’ve been following me for a while you know I’ve made it my monthly goal about a hundred times (well, not quite that much lol) to journal every day. It literally never happens – but I have good news! I made it my goal to journal twice a week and I’m actually able to meet it πŸ™‚ So set your expectations low if this isn’t a habit you already have haha. Also find some prompts you really like on instagram and pinterest. I love using prompts to help me get my thoughts out.

habit #4 – get some sleep

This is so hard especially if you’re in high school (or college) like me! Set a goal for hours of sleep (teens need at least 8 hours which is crazy!!) or a time you want to go to bed. Some little tips to get to bed earlier/get more sleep in general: get off your devices 30 minutes to an hour before you need to go to bed, set an alarm on your phone that says “time to start bedtime routine” and another that says something along the lines of “GO TO BED NOW”, don’t drink coffee late in the day (hahaha i’m definitely a failure at this one!!), and try not to procrastinate your schoolwork/to do list until 11 pm.

habit #5 – cook some yummy and healthy food

looking for meal ideas?? I’ve written tons of posts about this topic, but here are my top three: glow up weekly – eating healthy, what i eat in a day ft. simple summer smoothie recipe, and yummy, healthy, and simple breakfast ideas πŸ™‚

This is so important. If you’ve been eating out a lot lately or just eating unhealthy in general, this is a great habit to work on. Go grocery shopping and grab some healthy goodies (ideas; protein bars are BOMBBB, in season fruits and veggies, oatmeal is key to lots of recipes and makes a great breakfast, yogurt even if it’s dairy free, and maybe try some yummy chickpea or veggie pasta!) and plan out a couple easy meals you can make at home. You can also start packing your lunch if you’ve been order at your school and the available options aren’t super healthy. Making some swaps in your diet will make you feel amazing and it’s honestly not that hard!


what are your favorite healthy habits? what’s your favorite fruit? what time do you go to bed at night? do you like iced coffee? let’s chat in the comments! ❀

  1. My favourite healthy habits are to listen to positive affirmations, have a rest day and use essential oils! I love iced coffee and don’t often have it for the caffeine but just because I enjoy it. I’m a night owl and don’t sleep until early morning hours so I just have coffee whenever. My favourite fruit has got to be mango! x

  3. Great post! πŸŽ‰ my fave healthy habits are writing in my gratitude journal and taking my time doing my whole skin care routine. Not a coffee fan but would opt for an iced chocolate though! I like to be in bed to wind down around 9-10pm if I can! Love an early chill night. My favourite fruit would have to be strawberries, passionfruit or plums! πŸ₯°

  5. This was a wonderful post, Christina! πŸ˜€ These are all such great healthy habits! My favorite one is probably working out.. πŸ˜€ My favorite fruit is really any kind of berry! I usually go to bed around 11:45-12:00am,but I am able to sleep in the morning due to doing online school. πŸ™‚ AND YEES! Iced coffee is pretty good, although I like iced lattes, ecspecially honey lavender or carmel.
