We’re constantly being made aware of how important it is to do this, and how we shouldn’t go without that. However, actually adopting these changes into our lifestyles can be difficult.

Nevertheless, by making a few simple, easy-to-follow changes, you should notice a dramatic difference in your health. So without further ado, here are our top three tips that’ll help you boost your health and well-being:
Get More Sleep
While most of us are aware how much sleep we should be getting (7 to 9 hours for adults, according to the National Sleep Foundation), a lot of us aren’t in a regular routine that promotes healthy sleeping habits. But by sleeping outside of the recommended range, your health and well-being could be severely impacted.
If you can, create a schedule for yourself so you have a designated time to go to bed and get up in the morning, even at weekends. This will help your body regulate itself, allowing you to fall asleep and stay asleep with greater ease each night.
According to statistics, 15.3% of women smoked cigarettes in the U.K in 2015. And while we don’t need to lecture you about the dangerous effects smoking can have on your health, it is worthwhile trying to cut down or quit so you can really boost your health. If you are struggling to quit, there are a number of ways you can still get your nicotine fix but without all of the detrimental side effects. These include chewing specialist gums, wearing nicotine patches or getting vaping kits from places like VIP.
Enjoy a Healthy Diet
Another hugely important aspect to enjoying good health is proper nutrition – and even though this doesn’t mean you have to avoid takeaways for the rest of your life, it does mean watching how much fat, sugar and salt you’re consuming on a daily basis.
Try to stick to the recommended guidelines of how much of these things you should be consuming – 6g of salt, 30g of sugar and 20g of fat per day. If you love salt on your food, try adding this before you cook something, not after, as it’ll go further; equally, if you can’t do without sugar, try reducing how much you put on your food until you can manage without any. And finally, improve your diet by eating more foods that contain ‘good fats’, such as seeds, nuts and oily fish.
As you gradually make changes to your sleep, nutrition and lifestyle, you should find your health and well-being improve, leaving you feeling happier, fitter and healthier.
