Consistent good habits can be the difference between achieving our goals or falling short. While they might only be small changes, building these 5 habits into your life should make a noticeable positive difference.
Habit 1: Workout in the morning
Starting your day with a workout can give you a feeling of energy and accomplishment throughout our day. The most difficult part is not hitting the snooze button when the alarm goes off. Stick with it – it takes around 2 weeks for our bodies to adapt to getting up early. Also, chances are when you start your day with a workout, you’re more likely to make healthy choices through the rest of your day.
Habit 2: Good nutrition
Getting good, high-quality nutrition into your body is hugely important. It can help boost concentration and energy levels, and ensure you’re body is working the way it should be. Innermost has a tailored range of products (Blends and Boosters) crafted to help achieve specific goals. Depending on the product you choose, they can be used as a healthy meal replacement, post-workout nutrition or as a way to get important functional nutritients into your system.

Habit 3: Regular Sleep Cycle
A consistent sleep schedule makes a big difference. Heading to bed at a similar time every evening aligns your body clock, synchronises the sleepy phase, which can really help with energy levels. Most of us need 6-8 hours per night. And try to spend less time on the phone just before bed – the blue light doesn’t do any favours.
Habit 4: Cook at home
Sometimes you can’t help but eat out. We get it. But not knowing how many calories we’re consuming can be a problem. By mastering a few basic kitchen skills, not only can you learn to properly fuel our bodies but it could also lead to mad likes on Instagram. You can get some ideas from the Recipe section of our Blog.
Habit 5: Sit less
Move more, sit less. Most people spend 8+ hours/day sitting. When you sit down for so long your hip flexors tighten and you start to slump. Getting up and standing for a few moments every hour or two can go a long way in ensuring your body stays supple and limber.
