We get it: Nobody has time to hit the gym multiple times a week, pack tasty but healthy lunches every day and drink the approved amount of water (just think of all the bathroom breaks you’d need!).

1. Eat Fruits and Vegetables
We’re in a world of processed foods. Less and less of what we eat is made of fresh fruit and vegetables. We need to get back to the basics and stop eating junk. Fast food may feel like it’s saving you time, but it’s actually costing you years of your life. Put more natural food in your diet.
2. Drink More Water
About 60% of the average human’s body weight is water. Water is used to create energy, aid food digestion and maintain electrolyte equilibrium. Drinking water also helps to flush toxins from the blood stream and oxygenate your cells. The more oxygen in your cells, the better your muscles will function, and the better you will feel.
