Bad Habits to Leave in 2023 - Lily of the Desert

Bad Habits to Leave in 2023

As we prepare to step into the new year, it’s the perfect time to evaluate our daily habits. Conducting an honest assessment will reveal behaviors that aren’t serving us so we can make positive changes for a healthier lifestyle. And while setting ambitious goals is great, sometimes small, consistent changes create the most significant impact. 

Today, we’re exploring some common bad habits. Let’s learn how to replace them with healthier alternatives and how Lily of The Desert products can help! 

Do these sound familiar? 

  1. Eating Too Many Processed and Fast Foods

It’s no secret that fast food and processed meals are convenient! Unfortunately, they often contain high amounts of unhealthy fats, artificial additives, sugars, and tons of salt. Regularly consuming these foods can lead to weight gain, high blood pressure, and other health issues. 

Adjust your diet plan to include nutrient-rich whole foods, including fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains. We know that sometimes, when you shift your eating routine, your stomach can respond like you’ve thrown it a curve ball. Support healthy digestion by including our Aloe Herbal Stomach Formula. It’s loaded with gastro-friendly herbs (in addition to our organic aloe vera) and can be used before and after meals.

In addition to shifting your menu, you can also change the way you prepare food. Try substituting butter and unhealthy vegetable oils with our Tropical Plantation Coconut Oil. It’s excellent for cooking, baking, and adding a healthy (and delicious!) touch to your meals. 

  1. Creating Nutritional Gaps

When our regular diet doesn’t provide all the nutrients our body requires, it can lead to nutritional deficiencies affecting our overall health. 

To bridge this gap, consider adding vital supplements to your diet. To ensure that you maximize the benefits of supplementation, take them with our organic Aloe Vera. As a rich source of antioxidants, it’s a natural way to support nutrient absorption and promote whole-body health.  

  1. Leading a Sedentary Lifestyle

Research has confirmed that prolonged inactivity (e.g., desk jobs, long commutes, or too many hours in front of the TV) and limited exercise can lead to numerous health concerns, including obesity, heart disease, and diabetes. 

Break this cycle by incorporating at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise into your daily routine. Whether it’s a brisk walk with your dog, a Pilates class, or a workout at the gym, staying active is critical. 

  1. Not Drinking Enough Water

Our bodies depend on water, but many of us don’t drink enough. This can lead to dehydration, affecting energy levels, skin health, and how our internal systems function. Many people ask, “How much water should I drink daily?”. Experts recommend 11 cups for adult women and 15 for adult men.

We’ve made maintaining hydration easy and nutritious! Supercharge your water bottles with EcoDrink Naturals. Each naturally sweetened packet contains 28 essential vitamins and minerals to support your active lifestyle. 

  1. Not Getting Enough Sleep

The pace of everyday life can leave you feeling exhausted. Especially if you’re not getting enough sleep or your sleep quality is poor. This can easily result in fatigue, stress, and decreased productivity, all of which can negatively impact your quality of life. 

Establish a regular sleep schedule. A nice cup of herbal tea is a great way to relax and wind down before bed. Add a splash of aloe vera to support healthy digestion and balance stomach acidity naturally while you sleep. 

  1. Ignoring Yourself!

When you’re focused on your family, career, and other responsibilities, it can be easy to become overwhelmed and forget to take care of yourself! Carving out some special time just for you can make a tremendous difference in how you look and feel.

Why not indulge in some decadent DIY spa self-care? First, treat yourself to a relaxing soak with a few drops of your favorite essential oil. Then enjoy the luxurious silkiness of our Coconut Oil. It’s a fantastic after-bath moisturizer that will smooth and hydrate your skin.
