There are many healthy choices that can make your life better, however, when you turn even one healthy choice into a habit, your wellness can begin to soar. Most people have no idea how much better they could feel—mind, body and spirit—if they only incorporated a few, small, healthy changes into their daily routine. Hands down, health is the greatest wealth there is, and everyone has the ability to make good choices for their best—or at least better—health.

Honestly, we’re being a bit bullish about this. We want to push you, albeit gently, toward living your best life through developing healthy habits that make you and your well-being a priority. There are so many possibilities of healthy habits, and none of them are one-size-fits all. Of course, we know healthy eating and exercise are usually at the top of everyone’s list, but we wanted to explore some healthy habits you may not be thinking about, like self-care, nurturing your social circle, having a regular date night to enhance your relationship, getting into nature, and taking baby steps to tackle both large and small goals.

We don’t expect you to adopt them all at once, but we’re pretty sure you will be inspired by the women we chose to represent each category. These are just regular women—your neighbors—who decided to make healthy habits a priority and stick to it. After reading their stories and insight, we hope you will decide to work towards developing some healthy changes, too. Before you know it, you’ll have your own healthy habits and be on your way to feeling great—both inside and out!
