Your 30s

In your 30s you may not be as focused on eating or cooking due to busy socializing and school or career demands. However, it's very important to get into healthy eating habits. Did you know that the number one enemy of health when it comes to diet is processed foods? Try to eat as much whole foods as you can possibly can and try to prepare food instead of buying lunch everyday. Even if it means spending a bit more money, you'll be healtheir and happier in the long run. 

Your 40s

We all know that exercising and being fit is important. But don't forget about weights! Weight bearing excercises protect bones, reduce body fat, protect the heart and reduce your risk of diabetes and heart disease. Consistency in your exercise is key as well! In your 40s you'll notice you have to work harder than before to maintain your fitness. Even if you can only workout 2 times weekly, but you ALWAYS work out 2 x weekly, that consistency is better than anything else.

Your 50s

This is different for everybody, what helps you reconnect to yourself and stay relaxed? Don't forget to also get enough sleep. Make it a priority as important as exercise and eating well.
